To keep this short, I always enjoyed watching snowboarding and playing snowboarding games for many years, but lived far away from the slopes (along with not having much money). Once I moved out to the Mid-Atlantic Region and had friends that were into snowboarding (along with a job that pays), I decided to finally try it late last year. Lets just say I'm completely hooked and snowboarding has become my favorite thing to do. Got my own board/bindings/boots and upgraded all my winter gear. I mostly stick to Liberty/Whitetail/Roundtop since I'm an MD resident, but plan to travel out more.
As for how I snowboard, first time I went down the bunny hill falling a few times, but the day I went I was having perfect runs, so I've upgraded to steeper slopes. Still not going down the deepest slopes yet, but I'm making progress. My only issues are I need to get better at turning (being more consistent with it and having better flow going heel side and toe side) and stopping (I usually fall when stopping).
