Just wondering if you guys have any tips, advice or recommendations as this will be my first snowboarding holiday on natural snow, and am feeling a bit apprehensive as it's all new to me. I really enjoy doing my lessons, and this trip sounds amazing, but i'm not sure if i'm ready for a real mountain (sorry, that probably sounds really silly!)
Also how much does real snow differ to man made? will real snow be more difficult or faster to board on?
Don't worry, its going to be awesome! Just remember simple shit like enough layers and clothing options, goggles and sunblock. Some people like to carry snacks and drinks in a pack, others don't, so that is all personal preference. Mp3 playlist.
