The Final Result

                                             The End Of My Snowboard Adventure
I went snowboarding on Sunday December 28, 2014 at Copper Mountain with an instructor named Crystal. We took more than 7 runs and on the sixth run I twisted my knee but I got back up and did another run. I snowboarded  .4 miles and the speed was 7.9 miles an hour which is pretty good considering that I didn't know how. All of my family was my supporters. My brother went with me too! I was scared that I would get hurt and I did but it wasn't as bad as it could of been. I gained the knowledge on how to snowboard and get on and off the chair lift. Now I have the talent to snowboard and the ability to go out and do it again. This was a really great experience and would like to do it again.

hopes, fears, & dreams

     
Goals: My goals are to be a very good snowboarder and make sure that I do it right. I also want to do a blue or black run.
 Hopes: One of my hopes is that I will be able to learn how to snowboard and will do it in my back yard. When I learn how I will need to practice more to get better. Hopefully I will continue.
        Fears: I have some fears but my big one is to fail. If I fall and get hurt will I get back up again or will I stay down? What is the worst thing that could happen to me? Comment please! I need suggestions on what to do!   
       Dreams:  My dream is to continue. This way I can get better. I also want to do my goals.

Preparation Progress

         I have gathered all of my materials and have all of the right gear to dive into the snow. I am planing to go to Copper because it is one of my favorite resorts. I am going to have to rent my gear. My dad is a snow boarder so I have some back round knowledge on how to do it. I have a very unexpected consequence. I could break one of my bones trying to do this but when I knew my idea knew my idea I knew I could do this. If you have any comments post them here. I will not let the snow take me down.
