A couple weeks ago I traveled out to Colorado to visit my co-blogger Chelsie. Not only that, but this was a special trip because it was my BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!
This trip was unique. I brought two friends, Ashly and Merry, who had never been snowboarding in the mountains. Needless to say, my driving terrified them. Haha just kidding, but not really. It was a great experience to show them my absolute love of the mountains and why I have such a strong passion for snowboarding.
Side Note: If you are still trying to convince your friends to snowboard, check out my post 17 Reasons You Need to Learn To Snowboard. Both my friends are both now considering the epic local pass for next season too!
This trip’s adventures didn’t end there. Some of the crew surprised me with a sick backcountry experience! On Saturday, our crew split into two with the newbies heading to Breckenridge Ski Resort and the experienced riders heading to the backcountry of Montezuma Colorado. This time not only with our boards, but also a snowmobile!
I can’t begin to describe how giddy I was! Fun Fact: I grew up snowmobiling with my dad. I was driving my own sled by the time I was about 10 years old. Unfortunately due to the dry winters as of late here in Minnesota my dad sold all our sleds my senior year of high school. It’s been at least 10 YEARS since I’ve been on one!
