Time to move on…
03 May, 2010
Four years ago I packed up my truck with all my belongings and moved to Colorado for resort town living. I arrived in Steamboat Springs without a home, job and unsure of what the future would hold for me but all I wanted was to snowboard. The move ended up being the best decision I’ve made as I made a life for myself in Colorado and the snowboarding scene. I never expected to become shayboarder but the choices I’ve made have allowed me to follow my own dreams and showcase my passion for snowboarding on this blog. I’m about to embark on another journey, another decision where I don’t know the outcome but I’m ready to try something new. At the end of May, I’ll be ending my job with Steamboat Ski & Resort, leaving Steamboat Springs and moving to Mt Hood for the summer.
I’ve accepted a job with Windells Camp to work on their social media this summer and continue snowboarding over the summer at Mt Hood. I’m really excited to be working for Windells with such a great crew of people and excited for the opportunity. Even though I’d be leaving a year round job, security and a home…it was an easy decision to make in return for a summer at Windells doing something I love so much. At the same time I’m nervous, anxious and excited for the unknown that lies ahead and I am so happy to have the support of my friends and family.
What this means for the blog is the opportunity to prove myself with Windells in hopes that come August I can find a job that suits me in the snowboard industry. For shayboarder.com it means continuing to write all summer about snowboarding, shred journals from Timberline, Industry Interviews as planned and seeing where this takes me. If you are out at Mt Hood this summer, come say hi to me!
I’m ready for the next step and I hope you make it with me as I embark on this new journey.
