My former job at an after school program brought me to Nashoba Valley once a week for six weeks each winter. We brought a group of kids for lessons and free ski for an afternoon. Starting this, I had been snowboarding all of once and I was nervous about getting back on a board. The terrain is very smooth and there are trails that are not too scary for a beginner. The kids and I had a great time, and I looked forward to working on my skills each week on trails that were both easy and challenging enough to keep me coming back for more.
