Happy New Year 2017!

We had a quiet New Year's Eve.  We celebrated with a relaxed dinner and went to bed early in preparation for a day on our snowboards.  On New Year's Day we headed to Black Mountain which is located in Jackson, only a few miles down the road from our chalet.  We arrived to learn that the lifts were not working.  No worries! This gave us the opportunity to get some practice on our split-boards.

We made a quick trip back to the chalet, exchanged our regular snowboards for our split-boards, and returned to Black Mountain.   We made several trips skiing up using skins and riding down in board-mode. This was the perfect preparation for an upcoming trip to British Columbia to do some back-country riding with our split-boards.  With each lap we were able to practice the ski-to-snowboard transition and the at the bottom of the hill reapplying our skins for the ski back to the summit.  It was great fun!
