To Snowboard or Toboggan? What An Easy Question

We went to Mount Seymour for our company sponsored "Snow Day" this year. It's -3 degrees up in the slopes and there was plenty of white powder for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, tubing, and tobogganing.

I signed up for both snowboarding and tobogganing with the kids but the question is - which one to do first. It was the kids' first time tobogganing so it was an easy choice. We would go spend some time with Tito Phie getting down and dirty with toboggan mats/carpets and then if we had time, we would go snowboarding.

It was a lot of fun until little C started saying her hands were cold. So we went inside the lodge after a few trips up/down the half-pipe, and had some snacks. We had some lunch using the vouchers provided to
our group. That got us pizza or hotdog with fries and a drink, and after lunch we decided to call it a day. Kids were tired and were falling asleep so I thought snowboarding can happen next year.

Great first attemp at tobogganing for the kids but we will probably buy one of the nicer sleds next time.
