The snow is not sledding up

My favorite winter activity is sledding. I love sledding because of the memories that accompany the activity. I used to go sledding with family and friends when I was a little kid.

There was one experience where I did not like sledding. My neighborhood friends and I were sledding at our elementary school down the road from my house. For some reason I was not really thinking and decide to sled by our baseball field. The field’s backstop is a wall of rocks that goes from the first base line to the third base line. I drop into the snow and am ready to hit a jump and go airborne but I got caught on the rocks. I ran home to my mom and started crying because it hurt badly and I was also a little kid so I did not know how to respond in any other way.

My favorite part of sledding is knowing that no two runs/slides are the same. I might hit the jump square on the first time and then off to the side on the second time.

During my freshman year at WSU I went sledding with my roommates and on one run I hit the jump perfectly and in mid air I scorpioned–where my legs are above my head–and I could not remember a thing about the jump from the time I was in the air until I pulled myself out of the snow.
