Snowboarding

Although Kate is a committed skier, two of our sons prefer snowboarding, so Steve thought it would be fun to try. And it was.

Mike, another guest in our chalet, is an expert skier but was interested to try boarding, so I invited him to share my lesson. Our instructor was Toni Giglio, a charming young gentleman who, unfortunately for Mike, spoke very little English, only Italian and German. I ended up interpreting for both of them, as best I could. It also didn't help that Toni rode "goofy", whereas Mike and I were "regular", so we had to interpret all his moves as mirror images as well



Steve on his rented board (it's white, so you can hardly see it). The largest boots available were size 47, nowhere near big enough, but in compensation they had excellent step-in bindings


Zoom!


Mike, successfully riding the button lift, not at all easy on a board


Board lesson with Toni : Mike scooting, Steve waiting ...


... for his turn


Three men on a lift ... I fell off a couple of times, but eventually got the hang of it


Cool dude, or what?


Not really, but it was fun!
