I'm 34, grew up in Indonesia and moved to the us in 2000. I live in Houston and initially learned to snowboard at Brighton, in 2003 while on a trip to visit my mom. Ever since then I was hooked, and kept on returning every season for one trip, sometimes twice. So you can imagine my learning rate isn't phenomenal. Good thing is, the learning period gets shorter every year I go. I stopped going around 2007/8 due to stuff (broke college student, taking motorcycle touring trips instead on the cheap, etc...). Anyway, I started going again last year. Made a spur of the moment decision to fly up to Denver and snowboard for a day at Keystone. It was bluebird, a bit slushy and icy but it was an incredible amount of fun. Slapped myself around a bit for waiting this long to go again, but it seems like I didn't forget much... I think I even got better somehow.

First trip of this season coming up in a few days, finally on my own board. Flying to SLC and driving up to Jackson to hang out with some family and ride Snow King Mtn for a couple days (cheap tickets is the main reason). Then driving back down to Park City to meet up with my best friend and ride Park City for ~4 days out of 7. I'm more excited than a lab at a dog park right now...

Nice to meet everybody.
I too was born and raised in foreign country (Seoul, S. Korea) moved to the states 1999.
I lived in Houston for first 8 years.
Houston is my home away from home and still have most my friends there.

In my 26 year motorcycle riding history, I was most active and involved while I was living in Houston.
I raced TMGP (Texas Mini Grand Prix) with my friends, went out to the track on regular basis and even taught some beginner classes.
Ahhh... good old Racers' Road, Fayetteville and Texas World Speedway (R.I.P.).

I only did night boarding at Keystone.
I heard it has fun CAT rides.
Would love to visit go sometime soon.

You gonna love Jackson.
That mountain has EVERYTHING and is EVERYTHING.
Make sure to eat at Teton Thai.
I'm kicking myself not eating one last time before we left.

Have a fun and safe trip!

Welcome. Buy boots first. Good fitting ones, visit the boots section of the forum for tips.

Look forward to tips and advice, especially for those on the geezerish side of things.
Welcome. I ride primarily Afton and Troll, where are you learning at? Also over 40, I get that.

I started snowboarding when I lived in Minneapolis.
Good old Afton Alps!

age is just a number, and for me it happens to be the number of years since a little scandal the media dubbed "Watergate" that you might've heard of

always looking to improve my riding. currently trying to master Baker Chairs 1 & 6 w/o breaking myself off. goal is to get to the backcountry. hit me up if you're a Baker local and don't mind a tag-along!
