Default Greetings!

Hello Everyone,

I'm new here, looking to talk with fellow snowboarders! I started a website that helps skiers and riders find powder and the best lift ticket prices. You can check it out at WheresThePow.com. I'd love feedback if you have any ideas, issues, etc. Let me know what new features you'd like to see, etc. I've only added MA, NH, VT, ME, CA, CO, AK, and AZ. I should have the rest of North America online sometime this week... Hoping to expand to other continents shorty afterwards. I'm also hoping to feature lift ticket deals, but we'll see if that happens this year. Send me a message if I'm missing your region, and I'll prioritize the grueling data entry process.

Anyways, my wife and I go snowboarding at various mountains in New England, we just got 18 inches on snow last week, so I'm dying to get out to the mountains!

Cheers,
Aaron

Hi everyone, I found this website about a week ago and have been browsing it since then. I decided to join up today after snowboarding for the first time yesterday (Elk Mountain, PA). I have fallen in love with this sport. Like several people have said I wish I tried this sport years ago (31 now). Even before I found this forum I accidently stumbled on SnowWolf's awesome instructional videos and have to say these video made my day so much easier.
I arrived at the resort around 9:45am, bought my lift ticket and signed up for the 12noon beginner's class. However, by 11am I was already linking my turns so I decided to get a refund on the classes. By 2pm I was riding the blue trails. I took quite a few hard spills and am sore as hell today but I love it.

Funny, I was looking at videos on youtube the other day and I saw the Snow Wolf Productions videos too but I found this place just by googling snowboard forums.

Anyways, I'm new. This is my first winter learning to snowboard. I started out in December with lessons at a nearby ski lodge and I've been practicing at sledding hills near my house. Yesterday I made my second trip to the ski hill and ran the green course for the first time. I can get down the hill fine but holy man I need to work on my carving because I was going down that hill like Clark Griswold on Lampoon's Christmas vacation...


Anyways, I'm 33 and live in Michigan. I'm lucky to have a lot of snowboard resorts around. I'm going to keep practicing. I love it so far and want to get good at this. I wish I would have discovered it 15 years ago...

Whats up everyone, my name is Reid and im a 26 year-old newbie. Im from Long Beach, CA, and I have been snowboarding for about a year now. My girlfriend took me up to Bear Mountain snowboarding for the first time last January after I met her, and I was hooked. I was tow-side and carving by the end of the first run down one of the easy slopes up there. Now, I have a full setup: A K2 Turbodream board and bindings, and Ride boots. I love this sport and have gone 2 times already this season. Anyways, stoked to discover this forum site, and look forward to learning lots more and meeting everyone on here.

Cheers,

-Reid

Hey Everyone,

Another beginner over here. Just started learning this season and I have to saw I am hooked. Been up twice already and I'm going up this weekend. I've always been interested in boarding, but until recently never had an opportunity to try it. I'm from the bay area so there are a lot of options, but I've only tried Mt Rose so far. Does anyone have any tips for a starter? So far my 2 biggest challenges are getting up onto my board while strapped in coming to a smooth stop. Call me a noob or whatever you want, we all gotta start somewhere!

I can't get up from my ass onto my feet with my board but I flip onto my front side and have no problem getting up from there. Have you tried it that way?

Hey folks, I'm a new snowboarder, haven't been able to get on the hills as much as I'd like. My first ski trip two years ago I caught an edge and got my first concussion. I've had one more since then, but not nearly as bad as the first. I'm not much of one for tricks, but I like cruising and generally steady runs. Looking to get my first board sometime, but I will have boarded for 3 years before I have the chance
