We had a rainy rainy start and a new group of students who powered through the rain to a snowy afternoon (much in part to to the Bob’s Red Mill hot oatmeal demo)! While it rained we worked on one footed “skate” training, everyone was sliding around like champions getting the feel of the board at the […]
Our second day up with BGC Portland was another great success! We braved wet and cold to get our second group of participants up on the hill.
