Ivan, 29, Currently live in the LP!
What brought you to the event: I love to try new things and I've never been skiing before so when my amazing g/f told me about an all day event through Cityswarm, I was sold. It was a great event for a first - timer like myself.
Favorite part of event: The skiing! Least favorite part...having to get up after falling down 10+ times.
Most looking forward to in spring: Biking and running by the beach.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: Rent a boat for the day or jet-ski on the lake!

Most looking forward to in spring: kayaking in the river, cocktailing on an outdoor patio
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: always wanted to rent a yacht with the amigos and rage on a 100 degree summer day...ahhh...

Thoughts on Chicago winter so far: I actually like a good cold snap. Chistkindlemarket would have been a lot better with some heavy snow too. Also, no snowboarding this year. This winter was pretty depressing.
