Alex's first time snowboarding!

Since Alex has never been snowboarding and we bought our entire snowboarding packages right before Christmas, it was time to hit the slopes! My parents live in Burley and the Pomerelle Ski Resort is about a 30-45 minute drive from their house so it was perfect since were already home for Christmas. I hadn't been snowboarding in 3 years and Alex had NEVER been so I thought it would be fun to teach my hubby how to do it! (and refresh my OWN memory!) It was the most beautiful day! It never got to freezing (32 degrees) and there was absolutely no wind except for at the top of the big lift. The parking lot was only 1/2 full which really surprised us so we NEVER had to wait in line for the lift. We only went for 5 hours and got a good 10-12 runs in. Alex did amazingly well too! The first run was a little bit scary, his second run was ALOT better but alot of falling down, and by the 3rd run he could make it all the way down without falling! I WAS SO PROUD OF HIM! We decided that snowboarding is now one of our most favorite "dates" because not only is it plain fun, but it's also a good way to spend time together and still be really active. Here are a few pics from our trip!


  1. Looks like so much fun!!! Jon and I love to board together too! The only difference is I like to be as far away as possable from my husband he is crazy and scares me too much! I think he thinks he is still young and can hang but he can't. He got some skis last year so we will see how he does this year. I hear he is just as crazy on skis as he is on his board!!! Have fun!!

  2. Dang I want to go skiing so bad. Hey hope you bring Boomer tomorrow to the New Years Party!!!
