Something everyone should try :)
We made our way to Bittersweet Ski Resort which was only located about 20 minutes away from Lil Old Kalamazoo.
Went in there, rented our boots and boards, paid a large sum of money (which was $51 USD). Definitely a pain in the pocket :(
Snowboarding shoes were big a** huge. Everyone was walking around in a super weird style and after we wore it, we understood why. Freaking hard to walk in it.
The length of the Snowboards depends on a person's height. The (standing) snowboard should be as high as our eye level. So yeah, Wilson got the longest board and Chi Weng got the shortest.

We only boarded at the Bunny Slope because most or us (except Big Bro Shaun) were amateurs. Apparently, Snowboarding ain't easy AT ALL. I dare say that it is a painful sport because there is bound to be more than 5 HARD FALLS. I personally knocked my head on the ice a couple of times. The impact of the fall was so great that my tight beanie flew out from my head.
The last time I skied when I was 12 years old, we had to walk all the way up the peak of the slope to ski down. Thankfully for us here in Bittersweet, we had the chance to enjoy the facilities of getting pulled up by a motor rope.
Basically what we do is that we would just grab the rope and let ourself be pulled up the slope. Then again, it ain't as easy as it looks because ALL of us fell our first few times.
Do I look like a pro to you? :)
Owh well, my jeans were freaking soaked till it was so darn heavy.
Snow went into my sleeves and pants, even my thermals that I wore inside my jeans and my underwear was WET.
Lesson number one, BE SURE YOU HAVE ON WATERPROOF CLOTHING
I didn't have problems coming down the slope, in fact I did it like a pro......
I slammed myself on a random guy and the end of the slope. I tell you I was so darn freaking embarrassed! His gf even cried.
Now that was a mystery to me because I only knocked him down. His gf was still standing there watching him. And out of the blue, she cried... Boy, I felt like crap....
I didn't even touch an inch of her hair and she cried.
I don't know, probably they were arguing or something before I slammed him down.
By the way, I DID APOLOGIZED VERY SINCERELY.
Our bodies ached like no bodies business.
Both my knees were swollen and bruised up. Not to mention, I even and the map of Australia on my Butt. Yea.. All these for Snowboarding...
Owh well, at least I can tell people that I have Snowboarded.
It is definitely a sport worth trying, just don't expect it to be easy AT ALL!
Anyways, Have a GREAT NEW YEAR everyone!
May all your wishes and resolutions of the year come true!
God Bless all of You.
