I have snowboarded 3 years but early i have skiied alot, maybe 5 years. I usually snowboard with my friends but sometimes alone. I enjoy it very much becouse it is really fun to challenge yourself and have fun with friends! I recommend it to people who want to try something new. If you want to start a snowboarding you need snowboard, snowboard shoes, clothes and recommendedly a helmet and you need of course snow so it's season hobby. There is many rules. exept: start at easier slopes, behave in ski lift, help others, if you are drunk you can't snowboard/ski. You can snowboard in ski resort.
