Do you ski? I do. I used be a fairly decent skier. That was before I went slipping and sliding down the back bowls of Vail. I tore my ACL (which is a ligament in your knee), a rather common injury for women. Surgery. Rehab. Good as new.
Except, now I’ve lost the edge. I never want to go through that experience again, so I stick to the blue slopes and am a really adept apres skier!
My son has been begging to learn to snowboard, so when we hit the slopes soon, that’s what he’ll be doing. And, after I saw these fashionable boards, I’m thinking that may be the way to go.
I’ll keep you posted. For now, I just seem to be slip sliding down my driveway.

Have always wanted to try my hand (or legs!) at snowboarding but hear you spent more time down than up – these boards get a thumbs up from me!
The Zhush says
Looking forward to apres skiing with you in Feb….the only skiing that I do! (even a Chanel Ski set can't tempt me:) )
Purple Flowers says
Those boards look exciting. I also use to ski, but took a bad fall on a rather large ice patch and hurt my back. I've had trouble with it ever since.
Now I prefer the lodge and its offerings. 🙂
Après ski is my specialty as well. I do get out on the slopes but have never been a particularly adventurous skier – I'd be happy on the blue trails with you. Since my husband is such a die hard skier (junior olympics) snowboarding is not an option in our family – but these colorful boards are certainly tempting!
Style Attic says
Totally love to ski! Snowboarding is something I wish I could feel comfortable tackling, but I don't think it's in me 🙂 Skiing some blues, hot chocolate, skiing more blue down to a cute boutique is a plenty for me 🙂 XOXO
P.S. Love that lipstick board!!!
As a snowboarder who likes to "bring it"…I too, once had an issue in the back bowls of Vail…had be rescued by ski patrol…my issue, at the time, was that I didn't belong back there! Got stuck on a cliff…have since overcome my fear back there. Vail is my favorite place to snowboard. Can't wait to hit the slopes with you in Feb!

I love to ski, don't get to do it very often! Mr. Deer has a similar injury from tennis, so no skiing for him, hence, no skiing for me! Love those snowboards, though! XX!
Party Resources says
I love to ski too (we had a place at Stratton during my childhood and teen years). I too blew out my knee in Vail! Ah yes…the trip down with the ski patrol. And now I really have little desire to hit the slopes, but still love the lodge, the mountains and the shopping! xx

I had to join to skiiers in my family – although I am the slowest in the bunch, they know that I also provide the best apres ski…fondue….and an array of treats! I think it is such a great sport, take some lessons or join a ladies group. I did 3 years ago and love it. I have much more confidence….of course fashionable equipment does help too….love those bad boards.
Used to ski – fun family time together. Arthritic knees don't get along with the slopes any more, or keep up with they guys. But I thoroughly enjoy being in charge of the hot beverages and fire! Great colors in those snowboards.
AB HOME Interiors says
Wow those are gorgeous. That first one is pure art. I'd like to hang that in my studio! haha
Gretchen O. says
I am a skier…husband a boarder…I stick to the blue…much less time spent on my bottom! Which is where I would be if I tried to snowboard. Sounds like quite a trip you will be having…we will be hitting the slopes next week…first time w/ the kids.
Can easily imagine you in head-to-toe Chanel tearing up the slopes in style!

Love to snow ski, but have never been brave enough to try a board…this just might tempt me!
Cornflakes and Honey says
Oh I love ski-ing!! These snowboards look so funky. Be sure to watch your wrists snowboarding though, enjoy! 🙂
Uh, yeah slip sliding to breaking my back. I went skiing for the first time when I was 18 on the iciest slopes ever and I vowed…NEVER AGAIN! I couldn't wear my glasses, so I couldn't see and every time I fell, which was pretty much the whole time, I fell on hard ice. It was horrible! Btw…your comment on Acanthus and Acorn today was hilarious. I belong to a book club as well and I find myself doing exactly what you said. In fact I have considered getting Cliff Notes…that's bad! Glad I found your blog!
These snowboards are pretty cool! No skiing for me here, but i love to visit ski resorts:-). I think i know all the Moose and Zee songs because my little one loves them so much! XX
A Flair for Vintage Decor says
I have skied all my life, but if I tore my ACL skiing- I would have the same thoughts as you! I have always heard snowboarding is easier on your knees? I tried snowboarding once a few years ago…and could not figure it out so I went back to skiing:) Take care, Caroline

そんなクラブメーカーの怪しい戦略にまんまと乗せられて、ついうっかり、ゴルフショップのレジに、手塩にかけて育ててきた愛娘・諭吉ちゃんを嫁入りさせてしまうヘボゴルファーが続出・・・。 さて、本格的に暖かくなってきたことだし、今度は箱根の美術館や公園を散策してみたいな、と思っています。 [url=http://blog.goo.ne.jp/hosikara]星から来たあなた 特価[/url]
[url=http://blog.goo.ne.jp/hosikara]星から来たあなた 評価[/url] 最初は２６０ｙｄ出ていたのでこんなもんかと思ったけど、ｒ７クワッド（３８０ｃｃ）に変えたとたん２８０ｙｄと２０ｙｄ伸びた。 芯から外れず（芯が大きい）球質も重く良く上がり、全然曲がらない。
今更ヒッコリーシャフトを取り替えて使う事も出来ないので、このクラブは置物としてでも楽しもうと思う。 少し派手なんじゃないかと思ったが良くこんなバッグを探したなと感心し同時に感動した。 [url=http://blog.goo.ne.jp/hosikara]星から来たあなた 激安[/url]
