Snowboarding - I Love Powder

Gettin' some air on the slopes.
Snowboarding

I live in Colorado near a hill that gets lots of snow every year. In the winter my Dad and my brother and me drive about 25 minutes and then we are at the hill. Me and my brother snowboard and my Dad skis. That's cuz he's too old to snowboard.

The place we go to near our house gets so much snow which means we can snowboard in lots of powder. This year in April it snowed 18 inches in two days, but the hill had already closed so we couldn't go snowboarding. My dad, my brother and me went to a big hill in Whistler, Canada instead. They didn't have too much snow but it was still enough so we could snowboard.

I ride my snowboard everywhere on the hill. I even go over jumps and this year I started trying a few tricks in a halfpipe. The snowboard I have now is Burton Cruzer 135.

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
