Spring! For those of us who survived another long, bitterly-cold winter, the arrival of spring is like the arrival of a long lost friend come home. However, to those of us who love winter, watching the sun melt away our frozen playground is disheartening. Are you one of those people? If so, it’s probable that you are a snowboarder. Snowboarding is great exercise, an excellent opportunity to get outside, a relatively safe activity to do with friends, and a memorable winter activity. If you’ve never tried it, perhaps this commentary will convince you!
