Default New to snowboarding from CO

Hello! My name is Cassie. I just started snowboarding this season at 30. I was a skier when I was a kid. My Dad has been skiing for as long as I can remember, he goes as many days of the season he possibly can. Now he is getting my boys in to it. They are 6 and 8 and have been taking boarding lessons up at Eldora. I've only been out two times, but I feel like I'm doing pretty well. And to tell you the truth, I'm in love with it! Right now I'm in the process of buying a board and getting myself and the kids a pass to Eldora for next season. I've lived in Colorado for the past six years and this is the first time I've hit the mountains... such a slacker.

I'd love to meet some new people and hear any tips you might have. Look forward to meeting you all!

Cassie

Hi Cassie, welcome to a great sport and this forum.

I'm still learning myself but make sure to watch Snowolf's videos and check out the tips & tricks section. They really do help a lot. Just got back from Loveland myself and had a ball. My first time on a big hill.

I actually grew up East of Denver, college in Greeley, worked all over the front range before moving to MN in '85.

Is Eldora just going to be included on the EPIC pass or the local vail pass as well? Anyway, Welcome to forums!

Getting a friend, family or spouse to film you will help people analyze your riding, good for getting advice! It's worth the 200 bucks for that and the family memories!

I did actually! My dad has a go pro and he recorded all of my first two days. Haven't had a chance to look at most of it yet. But I'm hoping it helps me out.

I'm not sure if its included. At this point I can't afford the epic pass, I plan on getting the family pack of passes at eldora. I just need to find one other adult who wants a pass there. It's only 900 for 4 passes.. So 225 a piece. I can handle that.

Thanks for the welcome! I lived in Greeley for a while.. I like Longmont much better. I'm excited to go to eldora.. My first two days were at lee canyon outside if Vegas, not the best snow. Actually it was very slushy. Can't wait for next season!

Welcome! Never been to Colorado in winter but I imagine its a great place to be if you fall in love with riding!
Are your boys snowboarding too or just skiing? At my home mountain passholders get a lot of perks like free demo days. If your mountain has offers like that you guys could switch it up one day...get your dad and boys on one plank and you can try out two for the day. That would be totally fun!
Anyway...enjoy yourself out there
