Great work, thats a hell of an effort for a one day course, you will be flying down the mountains in no time, welcome to the addiction, just an insight of what you are in for:
Night after night, weekend after weekend, going to the snowdome burning serious cash hour after hour.
I then went on 5 school ski trips as a teacher which left meusing my only holidays with 28 hour coach journeys with coaches full of teenage kids under my responsibility 24 hours a day for a seven day week. Exhausted isn't the word.
Expensive personal boarding trips to Europe whenever you can get a holiday when there is snow
Leave the country, friends and family to be nearer mountains, move to NZ and go every weekend and holiday
Get some second hand gear that you love because it is yours and wreck it
Buy some quality gear instead of paying mortgage
Take sick days off work to snowboard
Join a forum so you can talk to people about snowboarding when you aren't doing it
Learn to surf because its kind of like snowboarding for the summer
Seriously consider using your savings to go on an off season holiday in US or Japan when the 2013 season ends instead of much needed home renovations.....
AHHHH, it will change your life...... so worth it
