Someone asked me the other day if I shred. That is funny. It’s funny because one look at me and you would know that I do not shred anything but paper. Don’t get me wrong, I love the winter. I love to ski but getting on a snowboard? No.
So, here we are working on what is expected to be a killer terrain park. Things like rails and jibs have become part of my vocabulary. Now I don’t pretend to be a ripper, shredder, rider or anything of the sort but when I see these park designers working their magic, I can’t help but get excited. They are building some really cool stuff. In the excitement, I may have inadvertently promised a few people that I would get on a snowboard once this awesome park is done!
All this got me thinking…can the “old dog” learn new tricks? I mean we also have telemark, snowshoeing, and tubing, here too. I say why not? I promise I am going to get on a board this winter. Maybe after that I will try a learn to telemark lesson. So now, I am extending a challenge of sorts to everyone visiting us this year. Try something new. If you ski, grab a board. If you board, try the telemarking. Grab a tube! You don’t have to be an expert to have a little fun. Whether you are a “young” dog or an “old” dog, you might just be surprised when you learn a new trick. See you at the terrain park!!
