I hoped that trend of friends taking friends down runs like that mostly died out by now!

For me, I didn't know what a bunny hill was or a blue square for that matter. Or that night riding on the east coast = ice. My friends and I were young teenagers. They had been snowboarding before so I deferred to them and their direction. They assumed that because I'm athletic I'd be fine. So that's how it went.

Like Optikal said, you have to get down somehow. In fact that was all I was thinking as I pinballed my way down.
