-waves- Tori from Texass. I've shared some pure bliss with with a few mountains over the past two years. I was enticed to learn how to snowboard by my buddy from Canadiaaa. The more he shared pictures, stories, videos, and his desire to kill it with the snow covered mountains the more I wanted to be a part of it all. On the way to school and work riding DART I'd stand in the small stairwell in between each stop, feet spread, squatting, eyes closed (sometimes
) trying to imagine what snowboarding was like.
I went and bought my first pair of pants in November 2010 and started to plan a trip to visit my sister in West Virginia. September came around and I got my plane tickets. Then on came December and my first jacket, socks, and gloves. January ripped around the corner and I found myself at the Pitssburgh International Airport being picked up by that previously mentioned buddy o Canada. We went to two different hills, Wisp in Maryland and Canaan in West Virginia. Canada taught both my sister and I how to snowboard that weekend and the trip was nothing short of amazing. As soon as I saw the first hill I knew there was no way in hell I would be living the remainder of my life in Texas.
My sister and I made plans to visit my grandmother in Cali January 2012. My canadian buuhdee flew in as well and patiently reminded my sister and I here and there of what we were doing and I started to learn how to link my turns on Bear Mountain. This time I had my own boots, bindings, and board. Thank you Random Hero.
I'm going to try my best to try and hit up Colorado before the seasons end and I'm moving to California this summer. I'm definitely looking forward to being able to board all throughout the next season in Cali, hopefully with some new buddies that hit up the hills in socal.
Its nice to meet you all and by the looks of it this forum will do nothing but make boarding more appealing. (: xoxo
