Never snowboarded Tips?
Hey guys im new to the site and new to the sport I've been wanting to snowboard for a while it looks really fun and just awesome. I have went skiing before but didn't really like the whole two 6 foot sticks on my feet it was very uncomfortable but i tried on a snow board and it felt good and just felt like i would have more control but never tested that theory out. Why i have waited so long? well i didn't have a way to do the sport cause im stuck in nyc and just one of my family members goes but he goes once a year while im in school. Now that im 18 and have a car i would love to go venture out with my girlfriend and try it out. But i have no idea where to go so im open to any suggestions. Any tips are appreciated if you guys know cheap places to stay at for a couple of nights about 3 would be cool thanks.
Im the kind of guy who's afraid of heights but will go skydiving =)
