My names is Caleb and I'm from Michigan. I'm 14 and I've been riding for longer than I remember but if I were to guess I'd say about 6-7 years. I have never been to a proffesional hill in my life, it's just been steep hills and hand made jumps for me, but I make-do.
Thats awesome. I would have love to have been able to snowboard at all when I was younger.
Oh why hello there! I'm Crystal, about thisclose to being 30 (blaaah), and this is my first season riding out here in WA. We moved here from Florida last winter so the last time I was around snow I was 5. We started a couple days after Christmas, and I've been out at either Stevens or Crystal (obviously that was names after me ) 5 times now.
I can do runs on my heel side all day long, but to seconds in to trying toe side turns and I'm somersaulting like an ungraceful gymnast. Of all the things I've figured out so far, riding switch has been the easiest thing to do.. I'm pretty much just obsessed with it, and almost had to be carried back to the car today because I wanted to keep going.
I am taking lessons at Hockley Valley with my two sons, they love it also. I totally agree with you Kathy very adictive!
How is Hockley Valley for your 2 boys??? I also have 2 boys (7 & 5) and have them started on boards. We've been to Blue Mtn and we did a trip to Jay Peak for a weekend. My Boys love it but are still trying to link up full carving....Anyway, the sooner they get it the sooner we can all hit the bigger hills!!
Happy (Family) Shredding!!
