Skiing vs. Snowboarding
Q. We’re planning a ski vacation this year and my youngest wants to snowboard. I think he should try skiing first. Does it matter?
A. Nope! It’s great that your son wants to board. Motivation is key, regardless of how he wants to get down the mountain; of course taking a lesson is the best place to start. You want to give them a solid foundation to build on so that at the end of the day it was a positive experience. At Monarch we offer convenient half or full day lessons. For a first-timer, I recommend a full day lesson. These all day lessons are great because your child can get totally immersed in the Colorado mountain experience, make friends and build on what they learn throughout the day, all while you enjoy your own day on the slopes. Win win..
