turning from my heel edge to my toe edge without falling on my last bunny hill run: seriously priceless.
i felt like i was in over my head when we went to the ski hill lodge to rent my board, and the guy asked me what foot i would use to kick a soccer ball. um, i would never ever kick a soccer ball, ever. i went from near tears halfway through my lesson when i was asking my instructor if there was some other way down the hill other than with my feet strapped to a board, to turning on the board. pretty exhilarating.
