If you’re planning a snowboarding trip with family or friends, you want to make sure you have the most amazing time together. This guide will help you to make the most of your time and come back with some incredible memories:
Book As Much As You Can In Advance
When you go snowboarding, it’s a good idea to book as much as you can in advance. This includes travel, creche/child sitting services, equipment rental, and more. You want to make sure you can do everything you want to do, and different services may get booked up in advance. Create an itinerary before you go to get an idea of what you need to book. This includes making sure you have your Denver to Vail shuttle ready for when you arrive!
Always Have Lessons Before You Travel
If you’re a bit of a novice snowboarder, make sure you have lessons or at least practice yourself before you travel. This will help you to have a better time as you’ll be more skilled and have more confidence. Coming face to face with the slopes without having any practice can be really scary.
Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew
It’s all too easy to bite off more than you can chew when you go snowboarding. Although it’s good to get out of your comfort zone, make sure you don’t attempt slopes that you’re not skilled enough to try yet. Also, make sure you plan to have rest too. Otherwise, you may not be able to move by the end of the week.
Budget Or Luxury?
The great thing about a snowboarding adventure is that you can make it a budget or luxury occasion depending on your finances. How will you do it? You can find budget accommodation, or you can stay in a luxury chalet.
Avoid Drinking Too Much Alcohol
It can be tempting to load up on alcohol after a great day snowboarding. After all, you’re on holiday. However, the high altitude and the fact you want to be clear headed for your time on the slopes means you should limit your drinks. You don’t want to get dehydrated or sick.
Make Time For Other Activities
Although this is a snowboarding trip, you should make time for other activities too. There’s bound to be place to explore outside of your chalet, and other things you can do. This is why creating an itinerary is a good idea, so you can plan your rest time and other things accordingly.
Another thing you can do to make sure you have the most amazing snowboard adventure is to stay positive and live in the moment. Don’t worry too much about things to do at home, or think too much about what you’re doing. You’ll be much better at snowboarding if you just go with the flow and do what feels right (after having a few lessons, of course). If you have any tips you think will be helpful, leave them below.
