This year, I went to Mountain High like I did last year. I snowboarded again instead of skiing, but this year we only stayed for one day. We went on January 4, 2014, and that day was a Saturday. Instead of sledding for one day, we went strait into skiing and snowboarding. While my dad skied, my brother and I snowboarded. My dad, Jeffery, all of a sudden said that we were going to Mountain High tomorrow, and that day was Friday, January 3, 2014. My brother stated, "That was a quick decision," and we all agreed. It was already afternoon, so we had to hurry. As we hasted, we forgot a lot of objects. My dad wanted to learn to snowboard, but he forgot his knee and elbow pads. We all didn't want to loose our mittens, but we forgot to bring the little hooks that can hold our mittens. Even so, we had fun.
We went up a mountain and were about to snowboard. The view here was spetacular, so we Here is a picture of my brother and I standing on a mountain peak.
Like last year, we still went on a lift, but this time I went on the steepest route back down the mountain called Black Diamond. It is so steep that I had to go in sharp S shapes. I had to go to the right, and turn so I could stop, and then I would turn to the left, and turn so I could stop. I continued this pattern until I was either at the lift, or down at the lodge. This is a photo of an example of what I was doing. It isn't the exact photo of when I was on Black Diamond because my brother didn't go and he is there in the background.
The shape is like an S, and I have to stop at each edge. That will control your speed. It took a long time to get down, but I made it. I didn't go for a second time because it would take too long, and it was a little too hard for me, as this is my second year of snowboarding. After I went on Black Diamond, my dad and I split up and I went on an easier lift, and he went on Black Diamond.
