The snow stung his cold cheeks as he struggled to keep himself upright. Beetle ravaged Lodgepole pine branches tore at his sleeves, but he forced his way through. Darkness closed in around him. His heart began to race.
The mountain sloped downward and he picked up speed. A light beckoned as he broke through the dense evergreens. Jason launched himself up into the air temporarily suspending time and then he landed a perfect 720!

Thanks so much Lou! There many more to come!
I like it. You lead one way and then the next, and I was so pleased to feel the 720 at the end. Great use of tension.
I was afraid that more readers may miss the inference that he was snowboarding or skiing. It would be hard to make the leap if you didn’t know what a 720 was. (Pun intended – Hahaha!)
Hey! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
