Snowboaring, Loveland Pass, Colorado
Loveland Ski area snowboarding resort in Colorado is a winter vacation for many adventure enthusiasts, located within the Arapahoe National Forest.
I thought that since I had been a Florida surfer and skate boarder all my life, this would be easy for me. I found it quite the opposite. This was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life! Getting on the ski lift was terrifying, but it happened so quickly and everyone seemed to be watching us. I just had to go with it.
Once on the snow, I practically fell down the whole way down the slope. I couldn’t stay up on the board because I was not able to get the heal toe concept. When I finished, I was so sore I could barely move for a week!
Found out that the back-country skiing is primarily for experts only as it has great risks involving potential avalanches.
