Am I too old to take up snow-boarding?


I am 33, and have never skied or snow-boarded before, and in all honesty am not very sporty. However it looks like fun - should I give it a go? If so, what's the best way to start?

Which former US Olympic Bobsledder played for the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings?

I would consider myself an advanced skier. However, when I tried snowboarding(I have tried it a few times), I just embarrassed myself. If you want to try it, I would say go for it, but maybe take one of those short lessons. Otherwise, you will see all these kids flying by you as you are laying on the ground.

Does us have a curling team?

i am very into snowboarding and i honestly think that you should give it a go. It will be harder to learn since you are older but being not to athletic shouldnt be a problem. I suggest that you go to Breckenridge...that is where I learned...take maybe 3 or 4 days of school and youll be good to go.

Have you ever seen an eight-ender in curling?

NO! You can absolutely start snowboarding now! I know people who started with ten or twenty years on you and will never go back to skiing. Go take clinics, but protect your backside, almost everyone hurts their tailbone the first time out, but the learning curve is like an exponential graph, it starts out almost flat, but then all of a sudden, it skyrockets!!
At Sugarloaf, I was zero to riding blue trails with confidence after two weekends, and there are some instructors that are just incredible with getting you off and running, just ask around!

Snowboarding Question.. Anyone heard of 'HELI' or '5150' and are they any good?

coarse not!! your never too old to start snowboarding (except if your like 90 or something). there is a certain age where you cant start then and get very good. i think you could still get good though, the age where you cant get really good anymore is more like 40or 50

Gymnastics/snowboarding/EXTREME!, where to find safe place to tty new tricks?

You are NEVER too old to learn. Don't forget that. I say, if you're interested in it, go for it! If you live in a place where you can ski (aka, somewhere where it snows...), go to the closest ski/snowboard resort, and get a rental snowboard (or skis) and take a lesson. I have taken a couple ski lessons and I've been skiing for 4 years. I've also taken 1 snowboarding lesson, which didn't go quite so well, it's harder to learn. But I plan on trying again this year. Just be prepared for black and blue to be very common colors after your lessons...lol. Keep trying. You'll get it! Of course, if snowboarding doesn't work for you, try skiing!!

The right skis?

To be honest anyone can ski or snowboard, the skill is remaining in control. I am 24 and only learnt to Ski when I was 21. My parents who are fifty plus both learnt to ski and are going to learn to snowboard this year.

Honest answer, go for it. When you crack it and start sliding down the slope weaving in and out etc it is one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world. Plus the social afterwards is second to none.

How do u become a cheerleader?

go for it. my dad is in his 40s and he just started snowboaring. He can already keep up with me in the diamonds! You'll be glad you tried, besides the cold, its really fun no matter what you do, park, moguls, long winding trails. The view on top of mountains are breathtaking too. start renting gear from a local moutain and ask about lessons. Its good to talk to other skiers/snowboarders b4 you head out to the slopes too just so you can know what too expect..it might be hard in the beginning but it is deffinally worth it
