I've been snowboarding for about 2.5 years now. I learnt for the first time 5 years ago, but it wasn't until I met James that I started going on a consistent basis. Last year I broke my wrist snowboarding, but I was back at it soon after the cast was off - just with wrist guards now hehe. I also acquired a helmet this year - because better safe than sorry! And, it doesn't fall off like a hat, and keeps my head toasty and warm :) Next year's 'investment' I think will be better snowpants; since right now I'm using a 20$ pair hehe. I would like to have a pair that works better with the sport.
I haven't been able to snowboard as much this year as past years since moving to Sudbury this year. I went to Blue Mountain in Collingwood for the first time last night, and how I missed it! I had a pass last year, and we went all the time. There's a little hill in Sudbury that I haven't been to yet, but the snowboard itch is pretty big now, so I may just be heading over there every now and then.
My board is a K2 Moment - some of it's proceeds support breast cancer research and support (K2 is a really good company for this. My bike was also from them, and proceeds from that went towards Breast Cancer research / support as well!). I love it! It's such a beautiful board. And, I know you can't see it, but there are swirls of shimmer all over it. My bindings are Burton and are pink and white and match my board wonderfully :) I tried looking for pictures of them, but couldn't find any.
