New guy, wanting to learn

Hi all my name's Alexis and I'm 27 years old.
I have never snowboarded in my life and I've ski'd once when I was about 12 years old.
I'd like to learn snowboarding mainly because my friends who went to winter vacation this year said it's really cool and I should come with them next year (couldn't go this year due to duties at work )
I'll probably be more active and start asking for more tips once I really did it for the first time.

In the meanwhile, glad to be here and to read about snowboarding experiences here

Glad to see you here. A tip before you start since you have plenty of time . work on lower and core body strength. Try to also to work in balance exercises and or activities that involve all three. It will set you up to progress faster when you get to a mountain to learn.

I'm currently doing chin-ups and dips twice a week. And seeing how I have to climb 70 steps every day to get into my appartment, I think I have my share of legwork too
However, I don't know any excercices for balance... and I can see how it's important for snowboarding.

Welcome! Yoga and Pilates are also excellent ways to increase your balance, flexibility and isolation. Cheers!

Every turn is a blessing.
