Happy New Year!

It’s hard to figure out what to do for a new years resolution.  Eat better?  Workout more?  Those are more like my everyday resolutions…

This year I went further, searched harder and am about to feel more pain.

Snowboarding!

Yes, after a lifetime of skiing I have started snowboarding.

Even I question myself on this one.  Skiing comes naturally to me after growing up doing it.  But something (or someone…thanks Tom!) kept pushing me to get into it.  I had tried snowboarding 14 or 15 years ago but I was terrible and switched back to skiing immediately.

This time it’s going to be different.  I have gone 4 times in the last couple weeks and put up my ski boots up for sale today.  This snowboarding stuff just got real…a resolution that is here to stay.

Snowboarding is so different than skiing, its such a different feeling when you are carving down the mountain; at least the small part of the mountain I have gone down so far. 🙂   If you are looking for something different to try this year I recommend switching it up on the slopes…push yourself to learn something new.

For me it’s like falling in love with the mountain all over again…even today I have a itching to get back on the slopes as soon as possible.
