This post is coming a little late. Sure I had 3 weeks off from work but the holidays just fly by. And keep in mind that I had some serious lesson planning to do. Either way, we ended up in Big Bear for New Year’s Eve last week. Past years have been host to some intense ragers but this year was a little different. The plan was to play it cool on New Year’s Eve and snowboard the next day while everyone else is nursing a hangover. We ended up with a fairly empty mountain with some pretty good conditions. Manmade snow is still snow! Some highlights of the trip include seeing Ian, Charles, and Marianne, and having a house full of dogs. Biggest highlight of the trip was that snowboarding clicked for Caitlyn. She was cruising down the mountain with minimal time spent laying on the floor. I can’t wait to see how much better she gets this upcoming season.
The guy in the wolfskin is Angela’s brother Justin. He’s got a wicked sense of humor that’s a welcome addition to the crew. Until next time!
