The snow is almost here!!

Now who is ready for snow fun?

I bought my first snowboard and boots last year. I am stoked to go out again and snowboard. I started when I was about 8 years old, broke my arm snowboarding when I was 9, switched to skis, Lol Then last year I switched back to the snowboard and I'm loving it. I go about 2-4 times per year (as money allows) I'm loving owning a board over renting as well.

Where I am at most of the time : On my tosh. I landed hard enough to get my board stuck into the snow. Lol



But I have always wanted to do this!! Haha Okay maybe not with jumps....

I'd like to ski-jor. Without jumps!
And maybe not so fast as a horse can run. I've always seen myself doing it with dogs, rather than horses. Just saying.

We don't get snow here. And I don't drive to the mountain in snow. Though I was looking at this adventure/tour type group that offers snow-shoeing, and skiing, and boarding, etc. and can include bus trips from a meeting point down here. - I was thinking of attmpting the snow shoeing. (My parents tried to teach me how to ski when I was about 12. I was on the pre bunny slope and so terrified, I took off my skis and said I'm going to go find a place to build a snow man!)

Where was that video taken? That's awesome! We have ski resorts all around up here (closest one is 6 mi up the road) - I've never seen anyone do that before! Really neat!!!

Yeah I can't jump without a horse pulling me, so I'll skip that. But just cruising around sounds like fun. I don't know where the video was taken, I just pulled it off YT. I trained my dog to pull me on my roller blades when I was younger. I made a harness and everything...I would be flying through the neighborhood while she ran at full speed. It took walking the dog to a whole new level.

I've always wanted to try snow shoeing but I've heard its hard =0

Your so lucky to have a resort close, I have to drive at least two hours to get to one here,

Snow shoeing is hard for me because of the kind I have - they are the best, but old-school style, and one of the last originals. Too wide. Since I'm only 5 ft. Tall, they trip me up too much!!
I prefer my winter treks wearing my trusty Sorrel boots (funny, because now I have a Sorrel mare!)
When the snow is really deep, (which it always is here), I can choose to stick to some seasonal trails (miles and miles right out the back door!) that have been used cross-country skis which makes it easier. Or, I can hike with my husband, and walk behind in his big boot tracks! HaHa
My brother lives in CA - he has raved about skiing Heavenly -
Our sons ski/snowboard in VT (Killington), and CO (Loveland)....
But there's "No place like home" with awesome powder right here!
Have fun this winter!!!!! Cool horse video!!!

Ah, sounds like too much work to me. Lol.

Heavenly is pretty awesome, the Tahoe resorts are always great. I mostly am stuck with the southern california ones which are decent.
