Hello there,

I just registered so I can learn more about snowboarding as a physically challenged individual. My 8 year old is doing great as a skier and figured maybe it's time for me to join her on the slopes. I did some basic skiing in my teens, however there are some maneuvers like the snowplow that I cannot master due to the positioning of my feet. In any event, I looked at the website and it has some great info I can use. I know that snowboarding techniques are built on balance, which I lack big time, but I see amputees snowboarding well... therefore I will take the plunge this weekend and strap a board on. All I need is an instructor who understands "me" and has enough patience to get me through the lessons
