When we arrived at out skiing destination, we got our belongings out of the bus, settled in at the lodge, and began practicing. At first, I had a bit of trouble staying on balance and actually skiing, but then I finally balanced myself out. I tried doing one run of the course, and it was quite challenging. I didn’t even make it past the first hill, but I didn’t know how. I returned to the lodge early.
As I was heading down the steep hill, I crashed into my brother and we started descending down at least 20 feet, he got mad at me but I laughed it off because the both of us didn’t get hurt. I got up and starting gliding through the snow, it feels like I’ve never gone that fast on land. The wind was rushing past my face while I was sliding and turning. My experience snowboarding was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. In the middle of the run there was a fork in the snow, it either lead to a black diamond run or a blue run.

But other then having head and eye gear, make sure you have the right clothes too! Ideally, you want to have 2-3 layers. The Huffington Post recommends that the first layer you 'll want insulative clothes like long johns.
Jasper Shealy studied this question for 40 years and he concluded “snowboarders were between 50% to 70% more likely to get injured, they are also around a third less likely to be killed on the slopes than skiers” (see Appendix A). They found that most skiing collisions were because of high speed collisions with stationary objects. When snowboarders fall, they drag across the snow creating friction and causing them to slow down. Another reason snowboarding is safer is because it takes longer to learn how to go fast on a snowboard. Research shows how to take precautions for the dangers of snowboarding.
Once, I was a little snowflake on top of a mountain. Life was good on Aspen Mountain with the exception of being trampled by skiers. Until one day when a skier wipes out on top of me. As he was falling, Me and my brothers were swept into the man's jacket. Most of my brothers tumbled out as the man stumbled for his Ski poles but I was stuck.
The author then offers limits to this argument by presenting an incident in where a snowboarder was skiing down a mountain slope without a helmet, when he crashed into a tree and now is in a vegetative state. By embedding this scenario the author is only further proving their point, that without the use of helmets the risk of head trauma is greater. Finally, the essay concludes by restating the problem and explaining why helmets should be used, “The benefits of wearing head protection while resort skiing or snowboarding greatly outweigh the disadvantages, so such protective headgear should be required by all
The investigation states that the man had a four hour practice that included multiple helmet to helmet collisions. The coach of this team have been to have told the kids to hit with their head and not shoulder. I don't know if the coach was uneducated or just incompetent but either way we it shows we need to educate more people on concussion prevention. Football is not the only sport that we should worry about concussions. Studies have shown that out of 100,000 concussion patients 64-76 of them are football, 54 of them are ice hockey players, 33 of them are girls soccer players.
