New gear

I hope that you all had great Labor Day weekends!
We had a very laid back day, just the way we like it. We were planning to go to Taste of Colorado but first we had to stop by and pick up snowboarding passes on our way. We figured it would just be a quick stop but as soon as we walked up and saw the huge line we realized we may be there for a while. Today was the last day to buy the passes so we really didn't have any other option. Passes were $130 for 5 days rather than upwards of $90 for just one day. I was so excited for the upcoming season that I almost forgot that I needed snow pants that don't come off when zipped and boots that don't make my feet go numb after 5 minutes.

After an hour wait in line we started shopping for new gear. I found a pair of pants I love and really cute new boots that feel great. We of course had to pull out all of our other boarding gear to make sure it all still fits and matches.
The new pants are folded over the top of the board, I also have a white hat and gloves. It doesn't matter what you look like but it's fun to look cute right?
After two hours at the snowboard store we decided to just go home rather than brave another big crowd in the hot sun.

Snowboarding terrifies me, but I'm sure it's a blast when you know what you're doing. Love the new gear!
