Sometimes, you don’t even need to ride much to experience a brilliant day snowboarding - building a kicker with friends away from the crowds can be just as fun. With a packed lunch, a sound system and some beers for after the kicker session, what could be better? And as well as the reward of having put some shovel work in, this is where you can really take your progression up a notch and break through that plateau by trying those tricks or spins that you might not have the balls to step up to in the park yet. Win win.
