The 25 year old Snowboarder named Shay
12 Jun, 2008
Living in a resort town means that birthdays are celebrated not with families but with friends you’ve made. Two years ago I moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Back in Washington I would always spend birthdays with family and since moving here, I’ve found that my friends have become my family.
It’s quite amazing that one town and one sport will bring people together from different places. I’ve found that my closest friends here in Steamboat come from such a range of locations: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado, New Jersey, Minnesota, New York and my best friend comes from Germany.
This upcoming 08-09 season will be my 14th season on the mountain and my 3rd season in Steamboat Springs. I am very lucky to live where I live, to be happy and have friends that share the same passion as I do.
