I’m back from my trip to Jackson Hole, Wy., and I’m not in traction. No body cast, no gimpy limping, not even any (visible) bruising.

To remind, I last posted about my plan to try snowboarding at the (somewhat) advanced age of 52, thanks to my friends at Subaru (which encourages its owners to “earn their badge” in all kinds of outdoor activities) and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. I was hoping that my attempt to shape up for the sport in a mere couple of weeks would not only keep me injury-free, but allow me to actually gain some sort of proficiency in the sport, or at least not feel like a complete bumbling fool.

So, the big question: Did it work?
