  • Narrative Essay On Snowboarding

    During spring break of 2016 I went to Winter Park, Colorado. That was the first time I had ever snowboarded. I had skied as a kid but I always wanted to snowboard. For Spring Break, my 19 year old brother put together a group to go skiing and snowboarding. The Friday night after everyone was out of school and off work, we went on our way to Winter Park. My best friend, Jade, got to come on the trip as well and we learned to snowboard together. We had to tell ourselves to be open-minded and don’t expect it to come easy. The two of us picked it up pretty fast and had a blast. I felt that learning to snowboard was a goal that I had finally achieved and I couldn’t be happier. We left Friday night on March 11, we drove all night and arrived mid-day on Saturday. We spent Saturday getting fitted for our skis and snowboards, going to eat, and resting to get ready for our first day on the slopes. Early Sunday morning we all split up and the people in the group skiing or snowboarding for the first time went to our lessons while the others just headed out.

At first it was a little difficult but we didn’t stress about it but instead focussed more on having fun. Our…
