But still, nothing like a winter storm and the start of a new school semester to get me missing this past winter break. I want to say I didn't do much this break but if I listed it out it's probably not true.
One of the more fun events this month was the mini-trip the Besties and I took in the beginning of this new year. It was a pretty last minute getaway but we were able to finally find the time to go snowboarding together.
Disclaimer: None of us knew a thing about snowboarding or skiing prior to the trip.
I was pretty hesitant at first with the whole snow tubing idea when I saw the hill we would be going down.
Otherwise a few tips to anyone else who's never been snowboarding/skiing/snow tubing before & a reminder to myself for future snowboarding trips:
- layers, layers, layers!
- waterproof pants and gloves are a must
- better to have those hand/toe warmers than not
Something a little different from my typical posts...
I've had the GoPro for a while now and haven't even it much love recently. But I made sure to pack it for this trip and managed to get enough footage (with the help of Bestie S) to make a short clip. Hooray for video keepsakes!
Has anyone gone snowboarding before?
If you have, how long did it take for you to get the hang of things?
If not, do you have plans to give it a try?
