Fiona – “I would say that just being up there a couple of hours away from Portland yet it being like a whole different world was so amazing! I really loved getting to learn something new and challenge myself, and the Snowdays people were really awesome too!
Marlene – “Well the highlight wasn’t just one. There were a few. First, just having fun and being with a really supportive group helped a lot. Second, it was great knowing that if we needed help, Snowdays provided it. It was also cool how Snowdays had us learn in groups based on our level of experience. I am so appreciative of Snowdays support when I got hurt, they didn’t leave me alone and guided me towards a safe spot. Overall, it was great!”
Jourdin – “Having an opportunity to go snowboarding again, seeing nature and Oregon for what it really is. To also spend my valuable time and energy doing something hearty and healthy.”
