jtslalom Posted March 8, 2005 Report Share Posted March 8, 2005 This past weekend I went to my local ski/snowboard shop to look for a new jacket. I found a good one on sale for 1/2 off. As I walked around the corner I saw a Burton Chicklet at 90 cm long. There was a sale for $139 that included the board, boots and bindings. I had my three year old daughter with me and I asked her if she wanted a snowboard. She ran up to the Burton and hugged it. Needless to say I didn't get a new jacket but walked out with a new set-up for my three year old. The sap that I am, my eyes swelled up with tears thinking about the time I've waited for this moment. I ended up taking her out twice on the mountain this past weekend with one day of video. She loved it and she can't wait to go again. I will go out on Thursday with her for a little while. No turns or real sliding, but no jelly legs. She just stands as daddy holds on and gently lets go at the very bottom of the bunny hill. She balances well and even can unstrap one foot. My dream has come true. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
