Default New Boarder

Hello all - I'm Jeff, Chillicothe, OH. I am a new to snowboarding (Dec 2009). I started in Breckenridge and fell in love with the sensation of gliding down the hill. I have been boarding at Mad River Mountain (Ohio) and I am scheduled for a trip to Big Sky, MT at the end of Feb, 2010. I ride a Burton JoyStick (163 cm) with Burton Boots and Bindings. So far the board works for me.

Well new to snowboarding last year.... But have been skiing since I was 11.... I am a better skier but enjoy Snowboarding more. I have ski'd in the Italian Alps. It was on Mount Cervinia. The backside of the mountain was the swiss side. What a great time that was. Other than that I mainly ski'd the east coast Seven SPrings, Wisp, Snoshoe and another I cant remember the name of. I have snowboarded at Snow Valley(Season Pass) and Mt High. I got my 7 and 6 year olds and my wife going with last year and the 6 and 7 picked right up on it and have a great time. The wife was a little slow and now is missing this season due to pregnancy. I am possibly moving to Hawaii in the summer for my next duty station so I may be out of the sport for a few years....but I will return again....

Love the forum and got alot of info from here already.

I ride a older Gnu 151 board with Burton Boots and Bindings.

Oh yeah....going to SV on Saturday and Mammoth on the 11th-13th

there's a bunch of people here on the forum who can help you out - for specific questions (or even more general newbie ones) try to post a thread in one of the specific categories; this thread is for general introductions. Anyways, ask away - everyone here is pretty cool for the most part

Hello to all. I have been browsing this forum for a while and it is a wealth of useful knowledge and tips. I live in western Norway and am boarding as much as I can, but at least 10 days per month, almost only on weekdays if I can help it ( I am luck to have a good working roster), in and around the various spots we have here. I am also very lucky to love within 45mins - 90 mins of 3 or 4 decent spots, and a few more hours to some great stuff. Just had an awesome week this week in Hemsedal on powder and off piste, avoiding the crowds, followed by a very average icy saturday at another spot! But at least I can always just go home if its crap and come back another day. I am another goofy rider, horrible in the park, but love it in the free mountain, especially when the powder comes. I used to be a skier, but found my way onto a board about 6 years ago and love it. I may go back to some skis one day, but not for a while. For now I am enjoying the boarding too much and have a long way to go, and am still learning so many new things and improving every time i go out.
