I'm 21, from the lovely state of Virginia. The first time I went snowboarding was on the bunny hill( which was more like flat ground). It took me an hour and a half to get down to the bottom while falling every two feet. It took me a season, but now I'm joyously bombing down black diamonds and experimenting in park. On the off season, I mountain bike, hike, and ride motorcycles. Definitely a thrill- seeker!

Welcome! Spend as much time on the hills as possible. Lessons help, other things help, but nothing will replace spending the time to get your snowboard legs...

A lot of us are "self taught", and quite a few of us took lessons later and were shocked at how much we were doing wrong. Believe me, unlearning bad habits is hard. Do yourself a favour and get a lesson or two early on. Private if you can afford it. You'll actually find that you progress faster after that.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

When we were in Steamboat this past January I was against the lessons. I have been wakeboarding for years so I thought I could get snowboarding down pretty quickly. You know, same concept, board strapped to your feet and use your hips to maneuver. WRONG. My girlfriend talked me into a full day lesson and boy am I glad she did. wakeboarding is nothing like snowboarding other than the board being strapped to your feet. So, when I get to Breck in Dec. I'm definitely taking lessons again. Thanks for the awesome advice.
