EnRoot is playing tonight at Egan’s in Ballard at 11pm.
Here it comes, here it comes. I’m turning into a crazy Seattlite (but I refuse to become bitter about the weather!). This weekend I begin snowboarding. I hear I will spend a lot of time on my bottom and snowpants are very important. Snowpants.
I grew up in Northwest Ohio for part of my life. Snow is not unfamiliar to me. Snow is my friend; keeps me warm and blocks the wind. But snowpants? Huh. I’m the kind of girl who wears heels in snow. Dresses in snow. Snowpants. I didn’t know how to shop for snowpants (actually, I’m kind of a terrible shopper) but lucky for me my friend is a genius shopper! She found snowpants at Marshall’s (on the eastside) for $40!!! I was expecting to pay nearly $100.
Crystal Mountain has a great deal for beginners like myself. The Ski/Ride 1-2-3 Package offers everything you need: 3 group lessons (The first lesson is 5 hours. The following 2 are 2 1/2 hours), ski rental and lift ticket. This is a very cheap way to get a person hooked to skiing. I’m in trouble because I love snow and I love the mountains and I have never minded falling on my ass.
My friend who talked me into this has made me swear I will go to all 3 lessons. She says everyone hates it the first few times but after the first 3 days you can do stuff and wind up loving it. I can’t wait 🙂 I have no idea what I’m in for. This is what I love about this area: full of surprises.
I have a feeling snow and I are about to have a very new relationship.
So here’s to falling on my ass for a few hours this sunday. Can’t wait to tell you how it will go. *smiles*
Guess what Seattle?
We get rain this weekend!!
