Default How old?

How old is too old to snowboard? I know at the local hill on the paperwork they want to know if your over 50 to set your bindings for skiing one step down. They feel once your 50 and over and fall your likely to break a bone easier. I would like to believe I could do this to the day I enter the nursing home so that would make me 70 and up . HaHa watch out grammie coming down the hill..

Pfft. We've got people in their 60's on the forum. I'm 57 and I started doing park this year. Age is bullshit. Health is what matters.

Age is only a number. I say when you cant stand up on your own you've hit the time when you shouldnt snowboard anymore

They say, he say, she say, who say, retard say. I'm with Donutz age is crap health is what matters. More important is that "matter" between the ears. So Marie4214 learn not to be a satistic or quote some freak making you one.

I'm going to go with 39 years old. People born on a leap year should be banned and imprisoned.
