I first started Snowboarding at the age of ten. Living in the country and only 5 minutes away from the hills I had a great advantage into the sport. Most of my friends where snowboarders too. Even if the ski hills where closed we would go down to the old bridge and make our own jumps and rails. We use to all jump on this huge toboggan and ride it over the jumps and the last one standing would win a bag of candy. Me being the only girl in our tiny little town all the parents where worried that i would be the one to get hurt. Lets just say i proved them wrong. To this day I am still snowboarding and try to get out on the slopes as much as I can.
