Tonight was my first snowboarding experience.
I decided that this year I had to make the most of living in a snowy country, and since there was a ski hill just 15 minutes from our house I would go the whole hog and buy myself the snowboarding gear. So I have a board, bindings, boots, pants, goggles, etc.
I took a lesson for my first outing (VERY sensible), and it was fun, exhausting, and I'm very sore from falling a lot. I'm sure my body will be fighting back tomorrow. I haven't quite "got" it yet, but I'm a lot closer than when I started.
Have to decide which pass to buy now. I suspect I'll just go for the full season pass due to having a good set of holidays coming up.
