Overview

As a beginner in snowboarding, you will need to learn how to strap yourself into your snowboard, get on and off the chairlift with ease, how to stand up and walk while attached to your snowboard and accustom yourself with your snow gear.

One of the basics you will need to learn is the right way to carry your board while you're walking around in the snow so that you don't hit people with it. One way is to carry it like a book, holding it on one side with one hand grasping it so that your board is always facing in the direction you are facing. Another way to carry your board is to put it behind your back while grasping it with both hands. While this frees up your front side, this approach can be taxing especially when you're going uphill as the weight of the board will press down on your back. When you're traveling long distance, you can put a leash around your snowboard, plop it on the ground and then just drag it along with you using the leash.

You will also need to learn the basic movements such as how to skate so you can move around in the snow whether through flat areas or ragged terrain, how to switch edges even with both your feet strapped in, how to glide so you can maneuver your weight forward and gain control, how to move up and down the slope with both feet strapped in.

There's more to learn: advanced snowboarding exercises that teach you to control your speed, improve your balance, how to change directions and help you make gradual descents. There are also snowboarding aerial and surface tricks that can give you that adrenaline rush you're looking for to finish off your snowboarding adventure.
