First off, the forecast verified and the "massive" storm rolled in with record snow for April 15th. We raced out and got our last powder day of skiing/boarding in and have to say it was a great day! Snowboard Muse wrote about his powder day and the parking lots were packed as everyone raced up the mountain. Here we are a week later, Snowbird is still open and Alta and Brian Head are open for one more weekend April 24-26.
With that said, we look back on our season with a smile. It started with advice from Emily and Brennan and ended with a book Brennan wrote all about snowboarding. Enjoy:
First, meet the author:
Then we need to find out what is in the book:
Chapter 1: "How to Snowboard"
Different boots and sizes of snowboards
How long are snowboards?
So how do you get "air"?
What happens if you get injured:
Different types of jumps:
and that's how you do it!
I hope you enjoyed the book....see you next year!!! Here's some video footage of Brennan laying down fast groomer turns:
and a run through the park:
