24 Jan 2013: Dylan rides the lift to the top of No Name Hill.
Check out the gorgeous scenery and volcanic ridge in the distance!

Dylan has been looking forward to high school for one basic reason: he couldn't wait to join Ski Club!  Now that he's a freshman, he is a member of the club, but not for skiing.  Snowboarding is his love.

Dylan (age 15) starts off with a small spill.

His first Ski Club outing to nearby Sunrise Ski Resort (on the White Mountain Apache Reservation) was 9 days ago.  He has two more coming up, on February 7th and 14th.

No more spills!  Dylan glides gracefully down No Name.
He says it was snowing at the top (11,000 feet)
and raining at the bottom (9,200 feet).

I've never actually seen my son snowboarding.  I'm either too busy to go along or he's headed to locations that require heavy uphill hiking through deep snow, and I just don't have the energy or strength for that anymore.  However, the people who board with him tell me all the time what a natural he is at the sport.

My thanks to my friend Kim (who's also the wife of our high school principal), who took these pictures of Dylan and sent them to me.  Kim and Dylan have become good friends, and they spent much of the day on the slopes together, even though Kim is a die-hard skier (not snowboarder) who grew up in Colorado and Wyoming.  She tells me that Dylan is a much better snowboarder than even he realizes!
