I’m fairly new to snowboarding, and most of my experiences thus far have included groomed green runs and trying not to get hit by anyone on a busy ski hill. That is, until last week when I visited Mount Washington Alpine Resort.
So. Much. Fun.
Blue skies. Five to 10cm of fresh snow. Mid-week, which meant the ski hill was blissfully free of crowds.
I had an absolute blast. I boarded in powder for the first time, and it was hours before the fresh snow was tracked out. I tried blue and black runs and even dipped into the trees for a bit.
After more than a dozen runs, I hit the pub for a pint of Vancouver Island ale and waited for my ski hill buddy to join me after he explored “The Outback” from the Boomerang Chair. A great day... thank you Mount Washington!
