Allow myself, to introduce… myself…

I started snowboarding last year in 2013 and went about a dozen times to our local Cincy hill along with 7 Springs and Snowshoe, WV. I have been heading out twice a week this year and made a trip out to Utah.

So I moved to colorado last summer and this is my first time ever snowboarding ive been twice so far and goin again next weekend. I feel in doin pretty good. I skateboarded for about 8 years when I lived in Florida so I think it made it a little easier to learn. I picked up a sims 154 board with k2 bindings and sims boots from a local pawn shop for 100$. Anyways that's my story... What's up?!?!

Hey all!

I'm new to snowboarding, but I have a surfing, skim boarding and skateboarding background. I have been urban skateboarding for 4 years, surfing for about a year, and skim boarding for a year. I don't think the transition is going to be too hard, I picked up surfing in an hour!

I just moved to Kansas City, so I thought I might as well start urban snowboarding! I'm really excited to start, I just need a board!

I am 34 year old from ex-Yugoslavia. Moved to Canada back in 1996. I wanted to go snowboarding for a really long time now, and it wasnt until my 9 year old expressed her interest in snowboarding that I even thought about it. I am yet to start my lessons but I am slowly learning through my 9 year old. I lived in Ottawa for about 7 years and now have been living in Calgary area for past 11 years. We love going to Banff and with learning to snowboard, it will only get more exciting to be going there.

Where is she doing lessons? No time like the present to start yourself!

We've got so many options here it's an awesome place to live (and board)!

Currently, we are in Red Deer, so she goes to Canyon Ski hill... but we basically are Banff junkies as well as Calgary. We spend so much time over there, its a shame we do not live there LOL... But I would be open to bringing her to Calgary anytime... We are looking into possibilities to move to Calgary in near future but I do not want to jinx it with saying it out loud!

Love Calgary and love Banff. No matter where I travel when I land in Calgary I am always happy when they tell me "Welcome home"... all I can think is, yes, yes it is my home

Started riding in 2010, took a break after flying off the mountain and landed in the ER. Picked it up again this season and really got into it.

My current set-up is K2 Happy Hour with Burton Cartel bindings and Burton Invader boots. Rode on Mountain Creek, Blue Mountain, and Killington. Looking for more trails to ride!
