20 Dec

Winter has graced its bitter coldness upon us.  For most of us it’s dreadful and leaves us longing for the days of the summer sun.  But for a tiny percent of us it has us grabbing our boots, boards, and bindings!  Snowboarding junkies are literally counting down the days until it is time for them to strap on their boards and “airdogging” their way down the slope.

 

 

Snowboarding is a sport inspired by skateboarding, surfing, and skiing wrapped into one lovely package.  It started in the 60’s and 70’s stateside and became an Olympic Sport in 1998.  According to statistics the best year for snowboarding was 2004 with a total of 6.6 million snowboarders.  They usually lie between the ages of 18-24 and 25% account for female.  Now that we’re entering the second decade of the 2000s we’re seeing more age ranges, and more of both sexes.
