If there’s one thing I like about winter it’s snowboarding. Especially when the snow is fluffy and plentiful…that’s when landing on your butt doesn’t hurt as much, and pushing yourself is a little bit easier. Last weekend, le boyfriend and I decided against a long drive to Blue Mountain, and in favor of Centennial Park’s proximity to the city…and cheaper rentals. Considering that neither one of us is a snowboarding pro, Centennial Park’s hill did its job, and we spent a few cold hours sliding, falling, and having fun.
It was a second time I wore my new snow suit, and I really loved the fact that no snow found its way into and down my pants…keeping my bum warm and dry. Sure, I might look like a snow-bunny straight out of the 80’s, but the comfort of not having to pull and tug at my jacket and pants, made it all worth it. As far as the rentals go, though…I really need to invest in a pair of boots and a snowboard…because let me just say that those rental boots don’t smell like roses, if you get what I’m saying.
Do you ski or snowboard? If so, what’s your go-to outfit for a day of winter fun? Got suggestions on snowboarding equipment? Share in the comments.
