You will probably get a bit bored in Lesotho, but it's still better than not boarding at all. I've been itching for good terrain for 2 years now, but haven't managed to get away, had an awesome trip to Austria in 2008.
Cervinia were brilliant, there is skiing almost right into the village, in the regions of about 350km worth of skiing if you include the side where you can ski into Zermatt Switzerland, i would say about 35% of the slopes are beginner, about 45% intermediate and the rest advanced.....As a beginner there are more than enough slopes to ski and enjoy without feeling intimidated.

This is why I am quite interested to see it.It has been amazing watching this sport grow and spread around the world.It is always cool to see how things are done elsewhere.

Yes 38, crazy i know as i am to old to start snowboarding.

Butt what the hell, life is about experiences, journeys and memories, so snowboarding here i come.

Had my first lesson on what is called a ski deck here in SA, a carpet water to provide some slip at a slope. I was almost dead, it was hectic hard, but they say if you can master the ski deck snow is much easier.

We have a ski resort, nothing compared to those in Europe or USA in Lesotho, and i hope to go boarding there in June if i can stand and balance.

Yeah, most probably to old to start but what the hell.
Welcome aboard and never too old to start.Would love to see some pics from that resort if you ever get the chance!
