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:
This is a mellon:

Too bad you will never ever be able to experience some of the greatest snow on Earth at two of your local Resorts, Alta and Deer Valley.

I also write books about snowboarding. Nothing that can compare to this, but I'm glad to see that this young snowboarder knows his stuff! Brennan, you might like this story I illustrated about a snowboarding bear that does tricks :) http://www.amazon.com/Big-Air-Bear-Andrew-Berg/dp/1936434652/ref=sr_1_1_twi_1_har?ie=UTF8&qid=1429948743&sr=8-1&keywords=big+air+bear

Whoa! I never knew so much could be done on a snowboard thank you so much Brennan for writing and illustrating your great book on Snowboarding! I think my favourite move would be the "mellon" grab! You have so much fun out there and I love seeing all the videos and now you have a Go Pro camera we really can see all your moves and it is just like "being there" too! Thanks so much too Jodi and Em for all the photos and your blog. Emily you are doing so well with your skiiing too, that's awesome! I am so looking forward to next years snow already! :)
