I just discovered I have hip impingement. Apparently it has been developing for years. I am 56 and have been riding for 10 years. Impingement is caused by the head of the femur developing too much bone or bony protrusions which reduce mobility and can wear on the cartilage in the joint. I think I tore my cartilage or labrum, same problem ARod has. If you think about it snowboarding puts a lot of force on thigh and hip joint so be aware. If you tore something they do arthroscopic surgery. It's a young man's disease but hey I have only been riding 10 years so if I guess I am like a young man for snowboarding. Good luck
