March Highlights:

Mountains, Mountains and More Mountains

I think Luke and I have really fallen for this snowboarding thing. In March, we visited the mountains every weekend, with one trip to Mountain High, another trip to Big Bear, and two trips to Mammoth. On two of our trips, Lilah managed to get out of her “lazy weekend fixation” and join us as well. Lilah hadn’t been to Big Bear before, but she really enjoyed it. I took this opportunity to sign her up for a more advanced lesson in the hopes that she will join me on some of the higher mountains during our upcoming spring break trip to Mammoth. I think the lessons definitely helped her because when she was done, she took Luke and me to the top of the mountain. We didn’t select any of the black diamond runs on the way down, but there were still some relatively steep sections to¬†maneuver¬†through and Lilah made it through them just fine. Lilah really seemed to like the view from the top of the mountain and so I followed her up several more times before we called it a day. On the other hand, Luke was not as in love with the heights as Lilah was. He preferred to spend his time in the park area of the resort, perfecting his jumps, hitting the boxes and, his latest favorite, criss-crossing through the half pipe. (more…)
