Snowboard Lesson

After trying out Sebastian’s old snowboard in the backyard two weeks ago, Sophia took a free snowboarding lesson at Chester Bowl Ski Hill yesterday.  It was a quick hour that she wished could have gone on longer.  She was given the basics and really enjoyed trying her hand at a new winter sport.  We stayed for more than two hours after the lesson was over so that she could try out some of the techniques her teacher showed her.

We were back at Chester Bowl again today for the ski races.  Sophia finished in the upper third of her age category of close to 20 girls.  After the races concluded and the trophies were handed out, she exchanged her skis for a snowboard and was back at again for another hour.  I have a feeling she will sleep well tonight.
