Snowboarding Facts

Snowboarding facts #1: You can’t get around in flats.

The thing that I hate the most is when my skier friends take a flat path and I get stucked. We have the “penguin walk”, but to be realistic, sometimes I would like to have poles to get out of that stupid slow run.

It’s no news that the snowboarders are the coolest of the mountain. We have so many colours and models to pick that we can convert the run into a catwalk. In special the womans in snowboard.
