Hello from Whistler, BC. I am a mountainbiker at heart but have recently found a love for snowboarding. Rocking a K2 157cm board, cheapo Sims bindings and Nidecker boots (total cost: $20 , family is great). I moved to BC from Windsor, Ontario to start anew and get away from the automotive industry. I have been boarding a grand total of 1 time (despite LITERALLY living on the mountain, gotta find me a job first before I play) but have graduated to blues.

Looking for similarly skilled riders was my primary reason for joining this forum, as my GF is a skiier (and exceptional as well) and I have no friends here yet (other than the GF, only been here 2 weeks).

Hey Everyone

New at snowboarding, just had lesson #2 tonight at Bradford in Haverhill. Its not as easy as I thought, and being 40, my body is so freaking sore. However I must say, its so much more fun then I thought it would be. Any tips I could get would be great.

Keep doing it! It gets easier fast, and gets more fun each time!

Yeah I know it will get easy the more I go. I knew last night when I broke my fall with my face, and after a quick check of no broken teeth and no blood,I got right back up for another run. At that point I knew snowboarding was for me.

Born and raised in Central California. Was mostly a summer person, spent a lot of time in Pismo riding the dunes. But, I moved to Idaho a year ago... and it snows here. So I decided what better way to enjoy the winter than to take up snowboarding.

Took my first lesson on Friday, and I am hooked. I had such a blast. I was surprised by how well I did... by the end of the first hour I was working on J turns going heelside to toeside.

Hello, new member here and my first post. I'm Sam and I have been riding for almost 5 years after converting over from skis all of my life. I am 33 years old and like to ride all sorts ot backcountry and varied terrain. I recently started splitboarding so I could get to some remote spots. I am not a park rider or into tricks, I did all of that on skis before parks were created haha.

I mainly ride in Vermont all year round and at the end of February, I am travelling to Utah to Ride Snowbasin and Powder Mountain for a week. It will be my first time riding out west as I am from the northeast. but I'm looking forward to it.

I look forward to posting here, the other snowboard forums I came accross seem more like myspace and social forums rather than rider focused forums.

Cheers.
