AASI Beginner’s Guide to Snowboarding

Learning how to snowboard is fun, and easy! Watch as Chris Rogers of AASI and Halley O’Brien breakdown snowboarding into three simple videos. Of course, once you get to the mountain it is always a good idea to link up with your local Learn to Ride Center to take a lesson, or if you’re snowboarding with a little one 3-6 years old, have them try out a Riglet Park!
