Somehow all of my snowboarding and mountain pictures were lost when I got this phone so I had to steal this one from the interwebs. Picked it because my daughter said " that one's awesome!".

Anyways, I've been riding for about 15 years, but have never tried skiing. I love it so much that I uprooted my whole life 6 years ago to move from the flat Midwest to be near Mt. Hood, Oregon. Home of glaciers, year-round riding, and girls in bikinis on snowboards. Yes, that happens.

Can't wait to get up there in the coming weeks. Being a daddy I haven't been able to go as much as I would have liked, but that's ok. My daughter is 4 now, so maybe I will be able to start teaching her.
