ESCAPE TO THE SNOW
Lae has been a passionate snowboarder for the past 2 years. He loves snowboarding, outdoors and the freedom that comes from snowboarding. What stands out for Lae when he is snowboarding is the mountains. They are so big and amazing. Lae is excited to be learning more about snowboarding though his Escape to the Snow project and hopes to help plan his own adventure to the snow very soon.
I decided to do this project because I love snowboarding and thought it would be a good way to get my work done while getting to research something that I was interested in at the same time.
Ross Rebagliati was the first person to win a snowboarding event in the Olympics
Shaun white crashed while training and got put in a coma for three months
The first snurfer was made
Craig Kelly died in an avalanche
HISTORY OF SNOWBOARDING
I have enjoyed my time with Project Space. It has been fun, it hasn’t been too hard and I have got all my work done.
Yeah it's been really good.
