Never tried it but would like to. I go on at least one snowboard trip a season (Floridian with a quiver of boards go figure) . I am planning this years trip as we speak. Just tore down the mini ramp in the back yard because my 18 year old lost interest but even then I rode it more than him or his friends did. Is there suitable terrain locally or are you riding up north? Sounds like great cross training for riding the snow so that first run of the season is'nt so awkward.
