hi

New to the forum, and to snowboarding! (hi Yota91! thanks for telling me about this sweet forum!)

I live in PDX and looking for advice/suggestions for beginners. Is there a beginner friendly venue for me to take a private lesson at?

I was at Meadows last weekend, talk about awesome powder. Thank God for it too because all I did was fall ha ha! I want to get back to Meadows, but I would like to learn at a more beginner oriented environment / terrain

Thanks,
Carrie

Hello

I am 20 years old, born and live in Kitchener, ON. Have also lived in England for a while where the snow is crappy and the dry ski slopes are even crappier :P

I have been snowboarding on and off for a while and I'm about an intermediate-ish level.

Also looking for snowboard buddies living in the Kitchener area to go boarding with and whatnot but need to hook myself up with my own gear lol. Can't be using rentals anymore. PM me if u wanna start a little K/W snowboard group or something.

Hey, Colorado girl here. I am 18, I skied for most of my life but I made the switch to snowboarding, which was a very good choice. I am attending college in PA and I am down to ride in either state with any fun people!

What's Up

Hows it going guys,

I'm 20 years old from southern california.
I've been to Tahoe, Big Bear (Snow Summit & Bear), Mt High, Mt Baldy, and June Mt.
Usually go snowboarding 2 or more trips a year of usually 3 days average.

Currently attending UCSB as a Chemistry major - 3rd year.

I'd say I'm an intermediate level snowboarder.

Damn...after reading the past few intros, I feel like an old man!

39 years old, living in Kodiak, Alaska. Active duty Coast Guard, so I move around every 2-4 years.

The first and last time I snowboarded was in 1991, here on Kodiak. I x-country ski as well.

Just picked up a used board/bindings for dirt cheap, even though it's a little small for me. Looking for some used boots, size 13...suggestions?

Hey everyone I'm 30 and live in so-cal. The first time I snowboarded was way back in '93 then really got into it in '98. I was going up to Big Bear and Mt. High about 3x a week until about 2001 which was the last time I hit it up. So I've got a trip I'm planning to Mammoth in February and I'm ready to get back into it. I've got a really old setup and will need new gear so I'll be posting in those forums soon. Thanks for all of the great info!

Hi, guys.
Japanese Aussie living in Germany at the mo.
Have been lurking in the past and decided to join in.
Had some good tips from you guys so I want to offer mine, too.
Would be a different perspective and I hope you find it refreshing...
I like all(big) mountain freeriding.

What's up. I am Jay. I am new to your forum. I love to snowboard and have been riding for about 3 years. I would call myself upper intermediate in skill, but I am probably the fastest mofo on pow.

I am married and have 2 kids. My son lives with my wife and I (Xander and Holly). Xander is 5 and is on a board this year (finally) he didn't like skiing the last 2 years but loves to ride his board. We live in downtown Seattle and have season passes to Crystal Mt. I am looking forward to bullshitting with you guy's n gal's on here!!


Gonna rest up now, we had a hard day of riding on hardpack and ice all day.
