One of the friends I’ve met here in Portland is an avid snowboarder. Inspired by the winter Olympics, and a desire to visit the mountain I borrowed Lena’s skiing attire and convinced my friend to teach me how to snowboard. We spent the day at Government Camp atop of Mt. Hood. Once we rented our gear, I learned how to strap into the snowboard (without falling) and we hopped on the ski lift for adventures!
I had a blast, and I was surprised at how easy snowboarding was to learn. I did eat snow quite a bit, but by the end of the day my skills had improved substantially and I fell much less.
Ski/snowboarding season is almost over, but I will definitely try to make it to a mountain next season (and maybe have a go at skiing)!xoxo
