I don't know if this ever happened to you guys, but my first time after I got home from snowboarding I could not think. Not that I fell or got a concussion or anything but I was just so in the moment and was lost at words. Idk it might sound ridiculous but I was just curios if this happened to anybody else there first time

Haha sort of. With one difference. The only thing I had in my head was my bed!

Default i know exactly what you mean

So to first say, I had a good teacher but at the same time it was a buddy who didn't explain maybe what he thought was obvious? It took me the better part of the day to figure out I had to use edges. anyway, that being said after that I was going down blues no problem. That is the hardest I have done so far but I learn fast once I get a system so next time I go I am sure I will see how a couple blacks go.

As for that feeling when you get home, I had it for like a month. I would close my eyes and be going down my favorite blue. It subsided for a while and now it is back and I am desperate for some snow and a board, never been this obsessed with anything before. Right now I am trying to get clothes and gear that I can't rent before the season starts. Not sure if I will buy a board/bindings/boots yet as that is a much bigger investment

Question Pretty Novice but wanting to be Pro!

Hey all! Just moved from SoCal to the Front Range, just West of Denver. I've snowboarded about a dozen times in about 10 years, but now that Im close to the Rockies, I plan on making it a dozen per season!
I would like some suggestions on which season pass to get as there are many. I live between Denver and Boulder and I have been offered 2 for 1 ($469 total) tickets through my bank for the Rocky Mountain Super Pass. This gets me Unlimited boarding at Copper Mountain and Winter Park/Mary Jane with 6 days at Steamboat and 3 days at Monarch. Are these places legit? Let me know your experiences and if that is a good deal. Thanks in advance for the input

Hi all,

My name's Victor Belousov, a deaf guy from Melbourne, Australia. I started to snowboard since 2000 and I fell in love with it. Been snowboarding almost every season since then. I love snow adventure, getting up early, driving on snow and shred it out on the snow. Will always get the chance to chase any snow anywhere, any time.

Cheers

Erm, I'm 13 going on 14

I'm adopted asian girl from China

I live in the 'Glove State'

I first tried snowboarding in the 3rd grade (I was about 8-9 years old) and I had been using a pretty crappy cheap plastic board just to play around with...but I kept snowboarding since then and by 10 years old I could (sorta) Heel Slide and do Switch Riding somewhat sloppily

I havent actually done a lot of snowboarding in the past couple years but I'm picking it up again more seriously for this season

I have never owned an actual snowboard and have managed to survive on a plastic cheap one for years....

I don't know much about snowboarding to be honest

Warm welcome to a new young female member!
Hey, I don't know much about it neither, but that's not necessary to be stoked. You'll learn a lot in this forum. Use the search function first and read the stickies. And if you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask them. Add your age so the creepy guys stay tame . There's a lot of knowledg here and ppl are willing to share and help. (Don't be shyed away by the sometimes harsh tone of certain members in certain threads - if you read the entire thread you'll recognize the pattern on how they were provoked to such answers.)
Hope, you'll soon get the opportunity to ride a 'real' board.
