Dear Lessons Learned,

The snowboarding season has begun and after my first day on the mountain at Snowbird, I learned the following:

  1. I didn't start off better than where I ended last season. I didn't magically acquire new skills through sheer will.
  2. In addition to the helmet I bought, I should have purchased knee pads. They took a beating.
  3. Thank goodness for the iPod. Never leave home without it.
  4. Music makes me brave.
  5. I still tend to favor heel-side.
  6. I love the mountain.
