I am working at a ski resort for the season in Canada and learning to snowboard. The board I have is 21 years old and originally from Costco. I have been having an urge to upgrade but I'm not sure if this board will actually be holding me back or making things harder. Simone local is selling a slash happy place board for $170 and that had me tempted. I have had 4 2 hour lessons and been out a few times on my own. Managing to link turns and trying to get my technique right at the moment.
