Snowboarding can be an energizing, invigorating experience and I think that everyone who likes skateboarding should give it a try. Snowboarding is very similar to skateboarding, the only differences are that you have to be strapped to the board and you need snow. The only type of equipment you need to snowboard is a snowboard and warm clothes. Snowboarding can be done at any ski resort and is growing in popularity. On my nineteenth birthday I decided that I wanted to go to Peak-in-Peak ski resort.
The excitement from competing in such a competition and the view the crowd would be something I would have dreamed of in my early stages of snowboarding. The experience would give me an overwhelming amount of adrenaline and make it feel as though my childhood dreams had sprung legs and walked through time towards my present day self. Professional snowboarding competitions would give me the joy and passion to work my dream job all while traveling the world and increasing my snowboarding skills with my friends. I am now a professional snowboarder with my friends at Mammoth Mountain, the local resort, anxiously preparing for the X- Games slopestyle competition that is a few days away. The slopestyle competition that I am competing in is a snowboarding course that consists of rails and jumps that are
Snow Surfing : An Event to Remember Surf the snow! I tried it and now I love it. I had never tried snowboarding or anything like it before and I wanted to be able to learn so badly. Today was the day I had been waiting for; I was going to try snowboarding for the very first time. I distinctly remember my first day on the mountain.
Mountain Resort For those who like winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, we have just the perfect place- the remote yet very popular mountain resort called Balea Lake. It is situated at an altitude of 2,034m, being the highest mountain resort of Romania. The cliffs are covered with snow from November till late July, sometimes still persisting till the new one arrives. First, you have to reach Balea Waterfall, and only afterwards try to get to the lake. Late spring is the best time to come- you take the main road and you’re disappointed cause you see no sign of snow and you think you have come such a long way for nothing.
Spring at Smugglers... ... middle of paper ... ... you’ll always have a great time skiing here at Smuggs’! Not into skiing too much? Try snowboarding! Just like our world-class ski programs, we have numerous snowboarding programs for all ages, and you can do some pretty crazy tricks in the woods down at the new Knight’s Revenge Terrain Park on Madonna! Maybe you don’t like going downhill so much.
Not only that, but the younger generation who was taking up a new winter sport would choose snowboarding over skiing. These days, resorts spend thousands of dollars to attract snowboarders to their resorts with claims of the biggest halfpipe or the best board park. But how did this sport explode onto the scene? To answer this question, a brief history is in order. On that snowy Christmas day in 1965, Sherman Poppen had created the first snowboard.
He showed me how to snow- plow down a hill, that is your first move you learn upon skiing, then he so ever willingly took me to the bunny hill and watched intently as if he remembers when he was that age and how strange and awkward he felt with those clumsy skis and big boots. That day was so hot but yet the snow remained and kept falling from the ski. Then my father showed me the basic techniques he acquired while learning how to ski, you see there is no standard way to ski everyone has to find their own style of skiing or snowboarding . As you can find out this sport is not something you do good at right away, it takes time and practice to become good. When I got older we would go to bigger mountains in Colorado where he lives, we would spend all day skiing down difficult runs called double diamonds, that is the hardest run on the slopes.
When a majority of the public thinks about winter they think of words like freezing cold, snowy, and dreary. But when I think of winter I think of such things as outdoor activities, entertainment, snowboarding, fun and memories. I used to think like the majority of the population and not like winter but, then in the winter of 2009 that completely changed because, I learned how to snowboard. Snowboarding taught me various lessons like: practice makes perfect and don’t quit after you fail, stand up and try again. I have snowboarded at countless hills around Michigan and Wisconsin but I remember the first time I ever snowboarded at Ski Brule and learned that you shouldn’t quit after you fail, you should stand up and try again.
Surfing on Snow People have always wanted to fly; snowboarding can give that feeling. Imagine getting launched fifteen feet into the air and sixty feet down a ski slope. This is just one of the thrills of snowboarding that has been suppressed for a number of years. Snowboarding had a hard struggle to get where it is today and has helped spark a new era for skiing. If skiers and snowboarders respect the rights of others then there would be no problems and all of the thrill seekers at the resort could have an enjoyable experience.
However, I made it through to the end, and I looked over the mountains in the distance and let the sun’s rays fill my eyes with relief; yet I still felt that it was all a mirage, and that it was just the calm weather before the storm. I skied off toward the left next to a white snow bank to wait for Chad to follow. He told me to keep moving and I did so. We reached the entrance to Jupiter Bowl soon after and I reluctantly looked down to see what was below. I went first (as always).
