"what's it all about?"

Many different people enjoy Snowboarding for many different reasons. At some time in their life they decided that snowboarding does look like a lot of fun and that they should give it a try. And from the moment they tried it, they were hooked. We think you will have a hard time finding a person that tried snowboarding but was actually disappointed in the experience.

Snowboarding is all about Freedom. Freedom to choose between high speed adrenaline rushes, complex tricks and taking a simple relaxing descent. Snowboarding has so much to offer:
  • Different riding styles to choose from and develop yourself in
  • Beautiful terrains as you travel across the world looking for the greatest most exciting runs
  • Amazing adrenaline rushes from performing aerial tricks and high speed descents
  • A great variety in very cool gear that will further improve your skills and make you look like a snow god
  • A steep learning curve with most novices being able to hit their first slope after 2-3 days
  • Enough challenges, technique and styles to keep you challenged for years
  • Different kinds of terrains to master ranging from well groomed ski slopes to backcountry wilderness
  • Different kinds of snow conditions to master ranging from fresh powder to ice
  • International competitions and events to either visit or to compete in
  • 100.000s of fellow enthusiasts that all share your passion
Imagine surfing through knee-deep powder on a steep mountain slope in an apparently weightless state. You feel you are flying. The sun warms your face as you carve one highspeed turn after another. The mountain is yours, total freedom to cruise your snowboard wherever you want it to take you. As you slalom through the trees you notice an excellent take off platform and you decide to go for it: you bend your knees a little more as your speed increases. You lift off and decide to make a perfect 360 turn before landing safely on both feet. Adrenaline rushes through your body as you decrease your speed and decide to enjoy the excellent views as you head to your favourite ski lodge for a nice cold one with your buddies.
