“I like to practice carving. Feeling the turn out and following it.”
Alan told me this. And I felt the universe pushing me forward. Enjoy the little things, it said.
After my first 2 seasons of snowboarding, riding down the mountains became monotnous. Over the last 4 years, my snowboard has seen fewer and fewer days, but the el nino in Cali made way for amazing snow. So I heeded the call of the outdoors and headed to Mammoth.
This time I tried to enjoy my turns. I tried to be in awe. I tried to feel my fear. Luckily, it was easy to be in awe.
