I started when I was 33. Until last year I was only getting on the hill once a year. I started my son boarding at 6 and my daughter started skiing at 5.

I am going tomorrow with a friend in his 40's who skis but he will be strapping on a board for the first time.

26 (28 now). Friends dragged me along... hated it for the first 1.5 days, got addicted when I linked my first turns. I really, REALLY wish I hadn't grown up in Florida!
