Have Yourself a Great Snow Boarding Holidayfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
Have you ever been on a snowboarding holiday? If so, then you no doubt enjoyed yourself. What's great about Snow Boarding is that everybody can enjoy it regardless of their ability. When I first went on a snow boarding holiday it was with my friends and they had all been snow boarding already. This was something that I'd never done before, and I was obviously nervous about whether or not I could really enjoy myself when I had no experience on a board.
But the fact is, I enjoyed it just as much as everyone else, if not more! When you get behind a board, something special happens I can't explain. When you're going down a slope, no matter how small, you feel something special when you start to speed up and the acceleration just hits you.
I went on the starter slope with my friend who had also never been snow boarding before, but we really enjoyed ourselves. We were firstly given instructions and training by a girl who was an experienced snow boarder. She gave us all the hints and tips we'd need to hit the slopes ourselves.
After we'd been given the training, we also got taught one of the most difficult parts of snow boarding. You guessed it -- how to get to the top of the hill on our own. It's really difficult because if you miss-time getting on the lift, then you could fall, and if you miss-time getting off the lift, then problems can happen just as easily. This is what I've always noticed when snowboarding because I actually used to get really nervous before I approached the lift. Getting off a snow boarding lift is probably just as difficult for a beginner.
What I really enjoy the most is how relaxing they are, if not tiring! You get up in the morning and if you're staying at a hotel, then you really should try and get as big a breakfast. Next, it's time to hit the slopes, and that's the part that takes up most of the day. When you are deciding what slope to go to you should ask people what slope they prefer and what kind of slope they enjoy.
For me, this was simple, as I was just a beginner. But as the week went on I did start to get a braver. After you've spent your day snow boarding, there's usually lots you can do on a snow boarding holiday. For a start, you can think of activities you'd do back home.
A lot of people ask me if you have to rent out a snow board, but this isn't the case at all. You can easily rent one out when you're over here and it really wion't cost much at all. My friends are all snow boarders and they decided to rent snow boards because it actually worked out cheaper than the cost of flying them over.
