Children under age 6-8 (depending on physical maturity, If I’m drunk it’s my camping friends fault shirt and fine motor skill development) often have a lot of trouble learning to snowboard. Yet they often have no trouble at all picking up skiing – assuming they have an instructor to mimic. Snowboarding takes an interesting combination of good core strength and fine motor skills in the feet/legs. Most little kids just haven’t developed this yet. There are plenty of exceptions, but my kids were great skiers and knew how to skateboard, but they really couldn’t learn to snowboard effectively until they were 7-8. As I said, I’ve been skiing almost my whole life and snowboarding for half of it.

When I learned to snowboard, there were no instructors If I’m drunk it’s my camping friends fault shirt and it took me 4 days to get comfortable getting down the hill without constant falling. These days, good instructors can cut that learning time dramatically. Whatever you choose to try, take some lessons. They aren’t expensive and they’ll make the whole experience much more enjoyable and rewarding. Oh, and on a selfish note, remember to tip your instructor. Overweight people should stick to skiing. Unless you are fat and fit (a pretty rare combination), you’re going to wear yourself out very quickly hauling your titanic tusthy off the snow over and over. Most fat snowboard students don’t make it past lunchtime.
