"All about Snowboarding" - book written by an 8 yr old

By Mountain Mama Apr 24, 2015
The season is almost a wrap and we've packed away the gear. However, many lessons were learned over the season including some advice and a book Brennan wrote about snowboarding.
"All about Snowboarding" - book written by an 8 yr old

First off, the forecast verified and the "massive" storm rolled in with record snow for April 15th. We raced out and got our last powder day of skiing/boarding in and have to say it was a great day! Snowboard Muse wrote about his powder day and the parking lots were packed as everyone raced up the mountain. Here we are a week later, Snowbird is still open and Alta and Brian Head are open for one more weekend April 24-26.

With that said, we look back on our season with a smile. It started with advice from Emily and Brennan and ended with a book Brennan wrote all about snowboarding. Enjoy:
