I just wanted to update the community on my first snowboard lesson...
I took one hard one to the tailbone on the bunny slope that made me consciously NOT fall on my butt the rest of the day, but onto elbows and wrists instead (I wore wrist protectors, and of course a helmet). By the end of the day, I could pretty decently control my descent on the bunny slope, so that's something.
I went to Copper on Thanksgiving and had Reyna (not sure spelling, she's Bulgarian), and she was an adequate and attentive instructor.
Kinda sucked to see 5-year-olds skiing seemingly in control of themselves, but I shall not compare myself to others...
Next lesson next week.
