Valentine's Snowboarding

We wanted to get away for the weekend and discovered that many places were fully booked. We found an inn that had a couple of rooms left so we booked one and headed north to Jaffrey, New Hampshire. It was our first, and probably our last, chance to go snowboarding this season so we brought our boards with us.
Crotched mountain is about 20 minutes north of Jaffrey and we knew they had night skiing. This is where Jen started her snowboarding adventures last year. It's a great mountain to learn on because if you rent equipment you can switch between skis and snowboard as many times as you like. We got there around 7pm and bought tickets that would let us stay on the mountain until 3am - we had no intention of being there that late.After just a couple of runs on the bunny slope Jen was back to carving turns and so we headed up the mountain.There were a couple of hard spills but overall it was pretty smooth going. We spent about 4 hours on the slopes and that was plenty for us.
