Snowboarding

Unless you've got a heart of stone, or have no real interest in snowboarding, there's a good chance you're getting seriously pumped about the winter season and all that this entails. Winter, after all, is the time to go up a well-powdered mountain and get yourself to the bottom of it in the raddest ways imaginable. Winter means snow, and snow means fun.

If you're a genuine winter sports person, you'll definitely recognise a few of these. If you're not a genuine winter sports person, please feel free to stick around. You can consider this an opportunity to learn about the secret lives of snow-obsessives.
