Where It All Began
Snowboarding is a sport that is loosely described as “surfing” in the snow and can be dated back to at least the 1960s in its earliest development when it was a much cruder sport with very elementary equipment. However, when snowboarding made its debut at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan, it became one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. Snowboarding now holds the interest of over 7 million participants in the U.S. alone, and many skiers and skateboarders have crossed over to this no longer a crude extreme sport. We have an excellent selection to help you join in.

Snowboarding styles include freeride and freestyle, which describes the most popular form of the sport and includes jumps, spins, and other tricks, as well as the wildly popular halfpipe. Freestyle snowboarding allows snowboarders to showcase their skills and maneuverability, especially on the halfpipe.
Freeride is the most generalized style of snowboarding and involves simply making one’s way down the descent of slopes or mountainsides. Many resorts maintain freestyle parks with rails and halfpipes, as well as freeride slopes for beginning to advanced snowboarders. While snowboarding holds the image of a “rebel” youth male sport, the sport appeals to men and women alike in many age ranges, and beginners continue to enter the sport at all stages in life.
