As for me, I'm 40 years old <Insert Old Far Joke Here> and live in Atlanta, GA. I'm completely new to snowboarding. I bought an Epic Season Pass knowing I'll likely get out a few times this coming season and already have a trip planned to Tahoe to meet up with some friends when the season opens in November. I grew up in Florida and board sports were my passion. I skated, surfed and skimboarded.

Anyhow, thanks for all the great information everyone's posted on here. It's been a huge help so far and I'm certain I'll be bugging you all with more questions shortly.
More likely you'll be teased for living in ATL than being old, there's a lot of gray's around here!

Default Intro...

Hey everyone.

Much like most other posts on this thread I'm new to this place. A quick search on Google and I ended up here.

I've recently started boarding and by that I mean I've had about 10 hours tuition and done a few sessions on my own.

Needless to say I've discovered it's quite addictive and I'm planning on buying my own gear over the next few months.

I live just outside of Manchester in the UK meaning the Chill Factor is on my doorstep which is where I've been boarding so far.

I'm planning on going to Snowbombing in Austria next year all being well.

I will be asking questions about gear, boarding on actual snow and probably a whole host of other random stuff.

Nate

I have been on here for a while but its never too late. thanks to everyone on the forum for sharing their knowledge.

I am 24 and i currently live in northern California doing seasonal work, as all my stuff is in a storage unit in seattle. I grew up in Minnesota and snowboarded for a few years there when i was a kid. I ended up moving to Seattle and got back into snowboarding again in 2011. I now have a complete new (more up to date) setup that i bought last year that I got to use a few times but i'm hoping to get a pass at baker or stevens pass. I have so far hit baker and stevens pass. I hope to move back to seattle in november.

Hi

This looks like the longest intro thread ever!

I'm Jac from Perth, Australia. My now husband introduced me to snowboarding a few years back. I learned to ride at Falls Creek...well maybe I was scared into riding because it was the sorest 3 days I've ever had of falling on ice/snow!

Since then we have the bug and try to time our holidays with snow in some part of the world; been to Austria, Canada, Japan and Australia if we have to!

Planning a trip to US in Feb/Mar so going to post on the forum because I'm pretty confused on where to go!

Happy to be here
