Over the weekend, I went snowboarding with my friends Tyler and Max. We went up with his boy scout troop and got a good discount. We only had to pay $60 for the ski lift ticket at Snow Valley Ski Resort. Upon arriving, it was fairly crowded. On my first run, Max took me to the highest ski lift without knowing. Because I was at the very top, I had to go all the way down. This was my first black diamond run and I went straight down. I fell a few times and hit the ground hard but it was part of the process of learning. It was extremely fun and I had a blast. The snow was great and surprisingly, it was 35 degree Fahrenheit. It got so hot that I was sweating from the multiple layers that I wore. This was a delightful experience for me and a wonderful time for me to improve upon my snowboarding skills.
