Snowboarding: The Perfect Winter Sport

Hugo Lopez Martinez
Keystone Resort Colorado offers some amazing snow and great slopes for snowboarding.

Have you ever thought about snowboarding?

If so, you need to learn the basics steps like heel edge, that is when the majority of your weight is pointing to your back, or how to change the direction of your board; the most important part of snowboarding is how to place your weight.

Also, you need to not get frustrated, and keep trying it to improve your skills because sometimes it can be hard; when you fall it hurts, but for that reason you should start going slowly and when you get more comfortable add more speed.

The first steps to know how to do it,are learn how to get up with your board, and once you know do this you should start to try your heel edge that as I have said before is when you need the majority of your weight pointing to your backĀ  and you should control that with your heels, nailings them backwards or going a little bit forward.

Once you have done this you can continue doing toe edge that is do the same but with your toes and looking at the mountain.

Snowboarding is a really beautiful sport and there are some amazing views at the mountain. I would recommend you to stop sometimes just to take photos of the views and of yourself if you want.

Looking at other snowboarders is good to see what you are doing wrong and how to correct this, and that way will be easier to improve.

Finally remember it is so hard to learn how to do snowboarding, harder than skiing, but once you have learned the basics steps you can become a pro really easily, practicing you would get better and better and probably is going to be the best thing to improve your abilities.
