A snowboarding Milestone

22 Sep, 2008

I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. It’s taken a lot of hard work, commitment and passion…but I finally did it.

Over the past 12 months I have snowboarded at least once a month.

I had realized this goal was possible a couple months ago after reaching my goal of 100 days for the 07-08 season. Now at the start of the 08-09 season, I was able to accomplish something that I knew I could do when the snowpack was still around.

I’m stoked if you can’t tell…I didn’t leave the country to follow winter, I just managed to be able to find the snow and keep riding it.

    I tried to do that for a couple of years. Made it from Oct – Aug then dropped the ball.
