Hello. I am a 24 year old travel nurse who is moving there in Oct. I am really excited and have a million things on my To-Do list, but the most important one to me is learn how to snowboard. I am a really really klutzy, so I will need an amazingly patient teacher who loves to laugh! I am expecting to fall alot! If you have any suggestions on great snowboard instructors or even locations to get lessons that would be very helpful. Thank you so much for your time.

Loveland>>

im there all the time .....i can give you tips but be prepared to be sore and for some tough falls
if your serious about snowboarding start leg workouts and alot of stretching ....if you have a board you can do some board workouts.....remember if your not from here most resorts are at 10,000ft(loveland's base) so bein in top shape can really help...i work on my legs and flexibility year`round

you will fall..a lot. you won't get it right away, and that's ok! Took me going up consecutively 8-9 times before I got the hang of it. But of course everyone's different.

Hi,

I am definitely interested in snwoboading too. I am 36, but in great shape and can move like I did at 26.. I have always taken care of myself physically. Do you think it is too late to learn?

Thanks.

^^^^no not at all....loveland stone lounge i always see this old guy smokin and i always end up givin him some beers anyways ..me and my buddy would ride with him for a couple runs he learned at like 55...although he was a skier his whole life which gives him some experience points but he could ride with us not quite as crazy but he could keep up

at 36 u can still easily learn.... people get intimidated from hearin snowboarding is so hard to learn usually it is hard but my bud from MA went boardin with me twice and was throwin backflips on second day
