and they ski away. I look like Frosty the Snowman coming out of a blizzard in a ski parka. I have learned that sometimes you have to risk getting yourself hurt to save other people from harm. However, I also learned that it is really fun to fly through the air on my snowboard. Avoiding those skiers has allowed me to experience something I would have never done otherwise.
The day I went across the country to snowboard in the Rocky Mountains for the first one is one I will never forget. I can recall the cool winds blowing at the mountain’s peak; the tranquil sound of my board slicing through the snow, and the exhilarating rush of adrenaline that coursed through my veins as I glided along the Canyons’ slopes. I can vividly remember the most memorable day of my life. It all started on a cool January morning in Park City, Utah.
Snowboarding has always been something I’ve admired. Every winter I would and still do sit for hours with my eyes peeled open to the X games. My dad and mom noticed my love for the sport and got me a beginner board for christmas when I was 8. At first I was just practicing on a little hill that my dad made in our backyard. Which turned out to be just another one of my dad 's crazy ideas.
One theme that is very prominent in Winterdance is the idea that hard work can bring great rewards. One time when this theme appears in the book is in the prelude when, after a night of luck and survival Paulsen takes in the gorgeous scenery all around him. “I let them run until they settled and immersed myself in the run and the beauty of the mountains.” This quote shows how after a night of barely surviving Paulsen is rewarded with great beauty and peace. All throughout the book this theme pops up when, after long hard journeys he is surprised and delighted in the rewards to be
Do you skii or snowboard? One of my very very passionable thing to do is snowboarding. Long time ago when I didn’t how to snowboard I would just look there and think about the montion and the coldness that people get while they skii down the mountain. Always wanted to try. However no-one in my family was skiin or snowboarding, so I didn’t even had a chance to at least try and learn from someon.
The wind seemed to chill me to the bone. I fought through the biting cold wind and put on my snowboard. Almost immediately I could tell that I had improved. Unlike the day before, I thought about what I was taught in my lesson and surprisingly, it all worked. Not before long I was shredding the slopes with speed and grace.
Ice Hockey is one of the most entertaining sports you could see or play. I would only assume most people love at least one sport but there has been quite an issue on which sport is the best. Ice Hockey is debatably the best sport ever created because of its intensity of the sport, the amazing experience of playing at a competitive level, and Hockey is always changing. People who watch hockey, without knowing the rules of the game, usually can understand that the speed and intensity of the game is very high. On average, a normal hockey player at any level will spend about forty-five seconds on the ice.

Helmets Required for Skiing and Snowboarding Requiring people to wear helmets at all times on the slopes regardless of age benefits enthusiasts and children. Helmets reduce injury by 35% (Picard 1). In a study by the Canadian Medical Association, 46,564 snowboarders and skiers from three continents sustained an injury to the neck or head that was serious enough for first aid and medical attention from a hospital or ski patrol (Picard 1). One in five of the people in the study were wearing helmets (Picard 1).
My friends and I changed to our snowboarding gear which was a heavy jacket ( if you are a beginner like me), gloves, ski goggles, hat, snowboarding boots, and of course a snowboard. Now my friends and I were ready to snowboard, so then my friends and the adults paid for our passes to go in the ski resort. As I was walking I saw ski lifts going to high slopes and people having fun like it was no sweat, so I started to feel confident in
After riding the trails for about half an hour, we stop in a big meadow where we can ride around and race. My favorite thing to do in times like this is to go exploring. So I start driving a little ways away from the group with Aftyn right behind me. Then, we find it. A big open untouched meadow.

It’s A Slippery Slope If you’ve ever set foot on a ski slope, you know how chaotic it can be; people of all different abilities, from novice to expert, whizzing past each other trying to get to the bottom of a ski run. To help control some of the chaos, ski resorts have put certain safety measures in place, like the skier responsibility code, to ensure that everyone on the slopes has a good time and stays safe. As much as these measures can help skiers and snowboarders avoid an accident, accidents do still occur. Collisions with trees and other riders are two types of accidents that can cause serious head injuries while skiing or snowboarding, and this is where a helmet comes in.
