Sup Hidde! I would kill to get to ride some of the places your going to get to, lol. The DJ'ing sounds pretty cool, good luck with that!

As far as your question about learning, most places here in the states I read about have half and full day lessons. From what I understand, thats usually enough time to give you the basics and allow you to go work on and hone your skills on your own, if you were'nt standing off to the side taking pics, picking your nose, etc.. :P I have also had several istructors tell me a good instructor should be able to give you a decent lesson in around an hour, possibly even less.

Good luck to you man! I'm a newb myself, and just got done purchasing my first board w/bindings. Hoping to hit the slopes for the first time this next month.

Stay safe out there...

Hey,

Thanks for the answer man. I'll go check it out how it works out in my case. Hope to have some luck with the instructor aswel.

Well yeah Austria is quite nice indeed, lots of snow usually. Tho I don't know how it is for those hardcore- backcountry riders... I'll take some blue slopes first...

I guess I'll start with a few days of lessons, I can always say I want more after those.
Nice that you bought a board good luck to you aswel!

Hi,

I started snowboarding like 3 years ago..I am 14 years old. Before I did skiing.. but I like snowboarding much more! I am like a intermidate boarder now I would say, I hope I can improve a lot during next season. I live not too far to austria, so it is not that far to go for a ride.

Hi everyone,
My name is Adam. I am 30 years old from Texas, but plan to move to the Denver area in the next two years. We are going to be making 2 trips to the area this winter to check out the area and my wife and I are really excited to learn how to ski(her) and snowboard(me). We will be checking out both Colorado Springs and Boulder as potential places for us to move. Does anyone have any suggestions for places we can get lessons and ski/board?

aperdue...

From what I'm hearing the place to go up in that area is Winter Park, and its affiliated resorts. Its about and hour and 40 from Boulder, and 2 1/2 hours from colorado springs. This is some of the best snowboarding/skiing in that part of the country, from what I hear. And they also have some nice deals on half or whole day lessons for beginners. Here's a link...

Winter Park Resort - Official Ski Resort Website - Winter Park, Colorado

Hope thats what you were looking for.

Hey everybody,
My name's Ivan and I'm 22 from Mississauga Canada. I used to ride a lot when I lived in Calgary as a kid but it's been a good 8 years since then. I've been daydreaming about taking snowboarding back up for years but could never afford it until now.
There's a little ski hill right next to where I live so I'm psyched to go as much as possible this year and take trips to blue mountain and maybe kelowna in February.

This site is great and pretty much responsible for the essay I never finished this weekend

looking forward to get to know you all
