Utah has the greatest snow on earth, and winter sports here are taken pretty seriously.  For example, snowboarding is one of the sports that a lot of people do around the globe.  It is where you ride a board side ways, and you have to figure out how to turn, stop, and how to go faster.

Utah has a lot of places people can visit and have a good time on the slopes. There is Sundance, Canyons, Alta, and Snowbird, jus tot name a few.  Those are pretty popular places in Utah.  Chelsea Ricks, ninth grader at Springville Junior High School, said, “I love snow boarding. I love the snow, the mountain, and the outdoors. I hope I can go this year.” Jacob DeRosia, eighth grader at SJHS, has been snow boarding almost his whole life. He said, “I love it. I like the high speeds and all the risks you have to take. I usually go around ten to fourteen times a year.” 

So if anyone hasn’t ever been snow boarding, this year would be a great year to try it. So, as you can see, it is loved by some people.
