Shred the slopes.
Snowboarding is for those who need speed and risk. You don’t want to take your time and enjoy the view, you want to get down that mountain as fast as you can and possibly throw some tricks in the mix as well. Keep smelling the pine trees for those doing cross country.
Snowboarding is a sport that people of nearly any age can do and is the most fun when done with a group, like your family or friends for a fun weekend trip. Since it is a winter sport you only can snowboard in cold weather with high elevation and mountains that have enough snow. You need much more balance to snowboard than to ski but if you like speed then this is the sport for you.
