Over break, I went to Winter Park, Colorado with my wife and a few of our friends. Winter Park is a ski resort in Colorado and it is where I learned to snowboard.
Snowboarding is one of my favorite hobbies. Every year, I drive with some friends to Winter Park for a snowboarding trip. Actually, there were a few years when we went to Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creak and a couple other resorts, but Winter Park has always been my favorite.
We have to get up really early the day we drive out. I set my alarm for 5am and was out of the house by 5:30. We picked up another couple and were on our way. The drive went pretty well, but it was really windy.
When we got to Winter Park, we checked in to our condo and went to pick up our lift tickets. A ski lift is the thing you ride to the top of the mountain and then ski or snowboard all the way down. Sometimes they are really scary to ride because of how high they go. I don't really get scared anymore, but sometimes my friends do!
