Hi, I'm Kal from NJ. I'm 40. I'm a skier.

My daughter, 12, also a skier, decided it was time for us to try snowboarding.

So we took a short lesson last Sunday. It didn't help much. But we worked at it all day.

By the end of the day we were able to link turns (heel and toe) all the way down the bunny hill without falling once!

We've been sore all week, but we're headed back to the hill tomorrow. Any advice?

That's great for you guys! Stick with it and it will stick with you. Just be careful snowboarding has a weird way of sucking the life out of you, leaving you sick at night with bloodshot eyes researching every forum, board manufacturing company and mountain trails, not to mention monitoring weather conditions.... If you let it....

but you know lownrangr, I have come to terms with my snowboard addiction. As long as I can admit that I have this problem help is not too far off..... right? I mean as long as I have forum posts going directly to my iPhone, my ski report app and new info regarding 2012 equipment leaking out almost every week I'm in the safe zone.... So long as AT&T doesnt fail me...

Hey all,
Born and raised in Chicago. I've been on/off snowboard for a few years. It started with skateboarding on the streets of Chicago to indoor half pipe at Rotation Station in Rockford, IL (old school, but good times). Somehow I transitioned my love for skateboarding to snowboarding. Now, I find myself dreaming about a weekend trips for some non-stop action. I've hit all the resorts in CO (except Vail, to rich for my blood), and I've been further north to BC and Calgary. I have an itch and can't wait for the next ride down the mountain. Looking forward to posting and learning from this forum. Thanks for having me.

Hello All,

I recently took up snowboarding so I could board with my 10 year old Son. Previously I'd only tried it 1 day and went back to my skis. But in helping him in our first trip this year I realized it wasn't that tough to pick up. So our next trip out I rented a board and never looked back. Had some brutal falls but greatly improved over the trip. I'm hooked. Never thought I'd pick it up at 44. But with my Son improving like he did I can see us both getting boards of our own for next season.

hey all

i'm 21 years old and a student at University of Maryland College Park near Washington DC. Thought i would join these forums to keep myself occupied until i can ride again next winter. I've been snowboarding for a few years, been out west a couple times. If you want to do a meetup at Liberty, Whitetail, or Wisp I ride there fairly often

Default Hello

Hey guys, I've been stalking these threads for advice on this or that for quite some time now.. I figured it's time to join up!

I live in Golden, CO but spend quite abit of time in Rapid City, SD too. It's only my third season but I'm addicted ;D I usually ride Keystone/Abaisn and I go to a little hill called Terry Peak in the Black Hills if I end up in RC, SD.

I'm not to good yet, but I'm working on it! I can do all the runs on the mountain, but some jumps/park scare me still. wish I would have started when I was like 12.

I'm 17 years old and I live in Alberta. There's a small city about an hour away from my town with a small hill that I went on lots this season. I also have the rocky mountains 6 hours away! My family and I go annually to Marmot Basin.
I've been snowboarding for 3 years now and love it. I enjoy going on the park and I'm looking for some trick tips.

Hey all, I'm John, I'm 24 from Northern California. Went snowboarding for the first time this season and definitely enjoyed it. I hope to learn more about the sport and get out more often.
