News You Can Use: Simple Kids’ Snowboards for London and Maddie from the Sports Section in Mendham, NJ

Given the amount of snow we’ve had this year and coinciding with the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, it seemed like the right time for nine-year-old London and eight-year-old Maddie to try snowboarding. However, after doing some basic Internet research on kids’ snowboarding, I had decided I would need Roxy (the snowboard and clothing company) to sponsor Roxy (the blogger) with London and Maddie’s first set of snowboard equipment (stay tuned for happy ending that doesn’t involve sponsorship). While I thought it would be fun for each of my girls to have one of those Roxy snowboards with the cool graphic designs just to slide down the hill in front of our house, I didn’t realize that snowboarding could be as complicated and expensive as skiiing… snowboard, bindings, boots, helmet… While I waited for the snowboard offer to come in from Roxy to Roxy for next season, I considered tracking down a couple of those plastic cafeteria trays used for snowboarding back in my days as a college student at Syracuse University.

Last weekend, temperatures reached the high 40’s and I decided spring was here. However, the snow returned to the Roxiticus Valley on Thursday and Friday.
