Snowboarding Tips For The Self-conscious Set
by: Andy Guides Jr

Do you have good balance, excellent timing, and a disregard for your own personal safety? Snowboarding may be the sport for you! Take the first steps to a happy (and survivable) ski resort experience by reading the following tips.

First, check a weather report. The best weather for first-timers is something close to a blizzard. This will give you smaller class sizes, and something soft to land on, (i.e. LOTS of snow). You will fall down a lot as you learn, so you definitely want a soft landing.

Don't go too early in the season. The snow will not be thick enough to provide enough cushion. Don't go too late in the season, or the snow will be mostly ice just below the surface, and ice is no fun for falling on.

Do NOT ask a friend, boyfriend, or girlfriend to teach you. This will end up in frustration, because chances are, they are not trained in how to TEACH, no matter how skillful they may personally be at it.

Also, this is not a skill you can 'pick up'. You will have to be taught, so don't go out on the slopes and just 'give it a whirl'. You will probably end up hurting yourself and others too. That is one of the hardest things to learn: sharing the snow means you will have to learn how to avoid other skiers and snowboarders.

Try a lesson from a trained professional. The ski resorts have droves of instructors just itching to send you down the slopes on your first snowboarding adventure. You could sign up for a class, but you may find your fellow students are all six years old. If you can, take a private lesson. They're not much more expensive, and you get an instructor all to yourself. The more time you get with an instructor, the more likely you are to have fun and learn some actual skills.

If you put yourself in the hands of an instructor, remember to listen and disregard any preconceived notions you have of the sport or how well you will do at it. The instructors have taught a lot of people this skill, so what they're telling you deserves your attention. Try to put everything they say into practice.

If that doesn't work, and you are still falling down before you can even move, ask the resort for a refund. They are not obligated in any way to do this, but if you put your request in a reasonable manner, they might accommodate you. After all, they want you to spend money on their mountain again and again.

The thrill of snowboarding attracts all kinds of people, particularly after the Winter Olympics. Start your adventure off with a little knowledge and a little prudence, and then go have a wonderful time!
