****** Take a lesson fool!!!!
Skateboarding and surfing ain't Snowboarding. You body will thank you if you learn two of three basic things about the mountain and how you decend on it.
One hour class that I took on the third day would have saved me about a hundred falls the first day and two weeks of pain. ( I went snowmobilling day two cause it was impossible to
get back on the board day two)
cat: It's almost as much fun as moto and only takes a few seconds with the board flat and pointed downhill to scare you with speed.
PS. Beware of those sections that look dark under any shaded areas, boarding on ice is really not fun.
