Welcome Karlijn. Loads of interesting info here, loads of different opinions to.
Good to see a fellow Dutchmen here. Just a pity we have to drive for 12 hrs to get to some decent mountains.

Thanks Cozmo! It is truly a pity. I live near the sea, so it will take me another 3 hrs longer to get to a nice ski area .

I live in the very north of NL, Austria is closer if u cut through Germany. 10 hrs straight where the French alps are 12hrs plus.
For all the US readers: the Netherlands has no mountains so most of us go only once a year for a week and that's it.

I'm 37 years old from Columbus Ohio. Been riding for about 21 years. Just recently got my wife into snowboarding and my 7 year old daughters have been riding for about 2 years. Can't wait for the mountains to be open. Happy to meet you all.

Hey

New to the forum (and boarding) so go easy!

I'm 27, from Dublin Ireland

I've been on two trips now and I'm officially hooked! Heading away for 2 weeks over Christmas and literally can't wait to get back up the mountain! Living on a tiny rock in the middle of the ocean we don't get much access to places to board as our biggest mountain is still technically a hill ha, so progress will be slow enough i'd imagine although i am hoping to do a season in Canada next year!

Hopefully you can all give me some advice in the mean time!

????????? Ok teach,.. forgive me if I'm wrong cuz my math was always a little off, but if I read this right? that puts you right about 61-62 years old? ...and with 100 days last season? If that's right,...

Old

Well…

Old is not a matter of age but in most cases a matter of a persons brain. But thanks for a comment.
