Snowboard!!!

I got in an hour and a half of snowboarding yesterday. This is the second time I have gone and it has been two years since I got a one-day lesson from Simon Lok. I have to thank him for having been an excellent teacher.

So yesterday, I was a little worried because we had my friend's 4-year old daughter on the lift with us. My friend was there to guide her, of course and she was probably a better snowboarded than me. But I was worried that I might lose control of my snowboard and run into her. Good thing I didn't.

In fact, I got along fine. It turned out my muscles remembered snowboarding! I was so happy! Although I can only do Falling Leaf and J-turns on my heel edge, it was just amazing. snowboarding is one thing I really want to do more of. D is a good snowboarder and an excellent skier. Hopefully his volleyball schedule isn't too tight and we can sneak in a day in Tahoe next year.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for stopping by. I have only been to South Lake Tahoe, and I have nothing bad to say about it.

The view is beautiful. You can see the lake from a lift and from certain parts of the run.

It's definitely worth visiting!
