More about snowboarding
The development of snowboarding was inspired by skateboarding, surfing and skiing and is relatively new in comparison to skiing; founded in the United States in the 1960s, it became an official sport in 1985 and joined the Winter Olympic Games in 1998. Snowboarding then quickly grew in popularity among the winter sports public with the creation of high-profile events like the Winter X Games but animosity between skiers and snowboarders remained in ski resorts. However this is no longer the case and snowboarding had 8.2 million participants in the US alone for the 2009-2010 season. Like skiers, snowboarders must also take safety measures; especially since the injury rate is approximately double that of skiing. Injuries are also more common among beginners. We offer a range of snowboarding policies so find one that suits you today.
