you will prolly be so sore and stiff after the first day i cant imagine making a week of it. go to your local mountain and rent a board and boots. wear water proof pants, jacket and gloves. also have a beenie and goggles with you.
I am from Texas and I have no idea where to start. I looked at a Crested Butte site and they had snow boarding schools. I figured that is where I should start since I know nothing! Thanks for the advice.
