Opening Day at Mt. Bachelor

As I’m assuming you all know, I love snowboarding. I don’t just love snowboarding because I think it’s a fun thing to do with my free time. I love snowboarding because of its general atmosphere. No matter if you’re just starting out, a pro, or simply just taking your time, no one makes fun of you for it. Everyone comes together to hope for snow. We all are out there because of one simple reason: we love it. No one makes us be there, no one forces us to spend money on a season pass, we do it because it’s what makes us happy. When something makes a large group of people happy, there is not a day when countless smiles aren’t returned. Doing something you love, with the people you love? I don’t see what gets better than that.

For this project, I started out using my GoPro. After using it, my dad took the case off to clean it and put it back in his pocket without its case, where it later broke to an unfixable degree. I ended up losing most of the footage I wanted to use, however I did record some things on my phone. Using my iPhone was the reason for this long-shot footage. I clearly forgot to ask if it was okay to use swear words in the music I used so I’m sorry for that in advance! I didn’t realize it was so bad until I had already uploaded it to YouTube!

This class has been too much fun to put into words. Going into it, I was unsure what I wanted to get out of it. Now, I get to have skills that I never would’ve learned otherwise. Thank you guys and thank you Teresa! It has been a blast!
