Wandering Tales | Snowy Getaway to Camelback MountainEven though NYC didn't get hit quite as hard as predicted by this recent storm Juno, it was enough to make me want to stay inside for a couple days. I was nice and cozy under blankets & got my Doctor Who binge on. (TV watching = great break activity in my books.)
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 given 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!
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?
