First off, if they don't look like fun for you, don't do them. There's no obligation to do anything in order to be a "real" snowboarder. Second and more important, if you've just finished your first season, you may just not be there yet. My first season, I swore I'd never be interested in park, and probably wouldn't hit jumps. Now I'm starting to do both because I've reached that point. But if you don't, no biggie.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
