Now you know the basics the next thing to do is book yourself a vacation.
Nothing will prepare you for the breathtaking scenery you will experience whilst on a snowboarding holiday.
You will learn more about snowboarding; gain more experience and more confidence everytime you go.
You should always think about what you want from a snowboarding holiday.
Are you a beginner? Then you'll want somewhere with gentle slopes good instructors, not an extreme resort like Alaska!
Do you want somewhere with good amenities off the piste? Such as resturants, bars and shops.
Will you be wanting to spend your time rideing the mountain or in the park?
How long are you thinking of spending there? A week or a 6 month season?
In Europe and North America most resorts open at the beginning of December and close mid April. Some resorts (with glaciers) can be ridden during the summer.
It is always best to plan when you're going to go, if you want the slopes relativley quiet then you're best off avoiding the holidays (Christmas, New Year, Easter).
You should check to see the resorts altitude, the higher the resort, the more chance there is of a decent snow fall, you've got more chance of boarding to your front door!
Look at the lift network, the bigger the resort and the more areas the lifts cover, the better your chances of finding a slope that's quiet and to your liking.
