Snowboarding for Beginners
For beginner snowboarders, it’s all about learning to use your edges (both toe-side and heel-side). Finding that balance is the tricky part. It’s certainly more psychologically challenging than Day 1 of skiing where your legs are free to move separately like every day walking.
After overcoming initial obstacles and mastering the basic movement, you can progress to the steeper slopes and work on improving that balance and increasing your speed.
Turning is actually easier once you are comfortable sliding at a quicker speed on a steeper slope because the angles you create with the board against the slopes are greater. The stage you want to get to is linking turns, from toe-side to heel-side, from here the mountain really opens up for you.
Learning how to snowboard should only take a week or two before you’re ripping around the mountain at an intermediate/advanced level.
