**I was invited to a complimentary day of snowboarding at Wachusett Mountain as part of a media event. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**
For years I’ve wanted to try my hand at snowboarding. I can ski, although I haven’t done so in a number of years, but for whatever reason, I had never given snowboarding a try – until last week.
I was invited to spend the day at Wachusett Mountain Resort in Princeton, MA. I had the option to ski or snowboard, but I knew right away that this was my chance to have a go with the snowboard, so I jumped on it. Plus, I was going solo, so my husband wasn’t going to be standing there laughing at me, which was an added bonus.
Fun fact: “Wachusett” is the Algonquin Indian word for “The Great Hill”.
As you know, winter is not over yet, and thanks to the copious amounts of snow we got here in the Boston area this year, there is still plenty of time to spend at the slopes. In case you want to try your hand at snowboarding, I decided I’d go over some tips for snowboarding with you today. You can never be too “safe” when it comes to snowboarding and I definitely learned a lot while I was out there on the bunny slope last week.
It’s safe to say that if you’re going to go snowboarding, you should probably bundle up! Bundling up allows you to stay warm while you adventure out into the snow.
