Starting Snowboarding Again

Hello, iam new to the forums heres my first post!

I live in England in the UK so snow boarding opportunities are limited for me i live near a place called the chill factor in Manchester it is an indoor slope with artificial snow i snowboarded about a year ago but stopped because i could go anywhere other than the 'chill factor' now iam nearly 18 and iam going to go to chill factor and carry on i wont have forgotten everything from a year ago? basically do you think ill still be able to board. Because iam working and nearly 18 i can afford to go on holiday somewhere any recommendations for snowboarding holiday destinations?

cheers, brad.

Welcome to the Forums! I hope it'll be good to you.

To answer your question, you'll be fine after one or two warm-up runs, if that. It's much like riding a bike, you don't forget, but you might need to make sure you pick it back up before you go crazy.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record I am going to say Japan. It truely is the snowboarding paradise on earth although you are probably best refreshing yourself with the basics locally before dropping your hard earned on an overseas holiday only to spend the whole time face planting!
