This book helps beginners get started and veterans get better.

Snowboarders looking for places to try their skill will be pleased to read about 20 of the finest snowboarding destinations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The descriptions of each resort include

- vertical drop,
- summit elevation,
- number of lifts,
- size of the area,
- resort access,
- where to write for information, and
- snowmaking capabilities.

Readers will also find a complete fitness program to help them prepare for their time on the slopes, along with practical advice for coping with high altitudes. There is even a glossary of snowboard-speak to help readers master the lingo of this rapidly evolving sport.

Like all the books in the Outdoor Pursuits Series, Snowboarding emphasizes safety, environmental responsibility, and—most of all—the fun of outdoor activity!

    Good Book for people who want to learn more about snowboarding

    This book is for people who want to begin snowboarding. It gives the beginners facts on how to get started on snowboarding by telling what kind of gear to get and where to go. It also helps the more experienced snowboarders by telling them how to move on from where they are now. For example, it talks about how to become a freestyle snowboarder and about getting into races. I liked this book because it helped me, a beginner, learn more about snowboarding and what type of equiptment that i would want, but it didnt give me any tips on snowboarding. If you are looking for tips on how to snowboard and get better, i would not reccomend this book for you.
