Old man look at my life, 44 and a powder whore.
My first time on snowboard was back in the late '80s at age 19 or 20. I borrowed a friend's Sorels (2 sizes too big), rented a board, and went to Breckenridge and winged it without any instruction or even basic concepts. Two runs later I was done. I had fallen down about 100 times on ice. I called in sick the next morning when I hurt so much that I couldn't even get out of bed.
I tried again in 2004 at age 37, this time with lessons. Things went much better the second time around!
