It’s coming… the snow… can you feel it in the air?
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
All of these quotes come to mind when I think of snowboarding. Not being an athlete, I’ve never felt a rush like the one that comes from the perfect run. In-between those perfect runs there is a lot of ass-bruising and near concussions of course but that’s not the point! Adults tend to either hate snow or settle into a kind of indifference to it because of all the work it demands. Only kids get to play in the snow. But, snowboarding is like being a kid again. Of course when you’re at the top, about to get off the lift, with only a glimmer of an idea about how you’ll get down the mountain, you will tend to forget why you’re putting yourself through this but if I may offer one final bit of motivational drivel, “feel the fear and do it anyway”. Just scream, My Life Is Beginnnnnniiiinnng, all the way down. See you at the bottom!
