Hey...I'm a beginner living in Ottawa. Just got out on my board for the first time ever this past weekend. I made the trip to Tremblant with some friends and I am hooked already. At 22 years old, it's been a long time coming. I've wanted to snowboard for more than 10 years (and I've actually owned my current gear for 4 years), but circumstances were such that I just never had the opportunity to learn. I'm elated now that I'm on my board, and I'm really looking forward to a full weekend of boarding (4 days) at Tremblant starting this Friday.
I've browsed these boards periodically, and now that I've begun riding I figured I might as well join the discussion.
