Blue Mountain anyone?


I can't believe it's almost Christmas and I JUST finish having my last final exam today and I'm glad it's all over. Although it's been cold and snowing for a while now, it still felt to me like it was summer/fall because I was literally stuck at home studying or going to work once a week. Until my bf took me to Blue Mountain this past Saturday that I started feeling Christmas around the corner and realized that winter IS here already…
The village you can see the hills on the background =]
My bf and I and a couple of friends went to Blue Mountain to snowboard and I was so excited for this trip because it's my first time going to Blue Mountain although it was not my first time snowboarding nor skiing. I don't mind snowboarding/skiing anywhere but I really wanted to go to Blue Mountain for its scenery so I was glad my bf took me to Blue Mountain. What got me super excited was the night view at the village, I was expecting a ginormous village but it turned out that the village is quite small. Perhaps it’s because I was comparing it to the village at Mont Tremblant which is a lot bigger although Blue Mountain is not bad at all for its distance (1.5 to 2 hrs drive) from my house as well as the price for the rental and lift. I also thought the night light would be blue for some reason, perhaps from the name itself LOL. Aside from all of this, one thing I really liked about Blue Mountain are the lessons they had. They will teach you step by step first letting you get use to the board on a small hill on the side of the walk way before letting you go on the bunny hill. This ensures that you have a good base before heading to the steeper hills. Now, if I were to go snowboarding again at a more frequent rate I would much rather go somewhere closer rather than driving 1.5 hr. I’m so glad that my friend Jenny introduced me to that place because it is only 5-10 mins away from where my bf lives. Not bad right? Although I have to say the view is not nice at all and the hills are smaller but that’s okay because if not like I’m a pro at snowboard that would need those Black diamond hills =P

Anywyas that’s all I have to say about my trip, I cant wait to go again soon. I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year/Feliz navidad y un prospero ano.
I need to fill this up soon ^^
