Snowboarding Lesson at Brighton

Wow - It's April 16th and Brighton received close to a foot of new snow in the last 24 hours. Taking into consideration yesterday's 25" I'd say my ski season has ended on a definite high note.

I was joined on the mountain by my son Alder who skipped school today for his first snowboarding lesson. He absolutely loved it. The Brighton crew was awesome, from the rental shop employees to the instructor to the lift operators. Very friendly and helpful to a first timer who was admittedly nervous this morning.

What made the whole experience even better was the fact that Alder was the only "first timer" in the morning youth lesson which meant he received a 2 hour private for the cost of a group lesson. For $45 that's a sweet deal. Speaking of deals, the rental shop was selling their current inventory so we picked up a board, bindings and boots (sized to fit him next season) for $80. This is the earliest I've ever started shopping for Christmas gifts!

Oh, and check out the picture of the "small" nachos we ordered for lunch. We both laughed when they were set down on the table. I wonder what a regular serving looks like? We weren't able to eat more than half.
