I managed to get my wife into boarding. The first day torture was endured like a champ. She enjoys it now, but we are at such different levels we don't really board together. Maybe 1 run a day, but when there is sweet pow to be had (most days here) I can't bring myself to spend time on easy groomed slopes. Luckily for me she in pretty independent and is cool with that. She is improving fast and maybe next year we could do more together.
