For most people, their first time snowboarding can be a daunting experience. Mountains are a cold, hostile environment very different from most people day-to-day life, plus the addition of multiple, high-speed bodies only adds to the chaos.
No wonder then that many beginner snowboarders cling to the nursery slopes like sloths to a branch, or retreat to expensive slope-side restaurants to nurse overpriced hot chocolates.
“There’s also a whole set of new, unwritten rules, ones you probably won’t hear of until you’ve broken them and some jaded local sprays you in the face”
But it doesn’t have to be this way! We obviously think snowboarding is the tits – so should everyone else. Everyone has to start somewhere, even the aforementioned local twat.
Here we’ve compiled a short list of helpful hints to make you more comfortable, safer and secure lest ye be venturing out on the slopes for the first time. Thank us later.
