1 year old Zeke Snowboarding at Appalachian Ski Mountain and Copper Mountain before his 2nd Birthday(22-23months). Here are a few thoughts on young kids snowboarding(I'm not an instructor or even that good of snowboarder myself):
- Your kid may or may not like it but why not give it a try? What's the worst that can happen? Kids are like rubber at that age.
- It takes a lot of patients and effort from the parents.
- Rent the right equipment. 80CM Burton and they make down to a size 7C boot. Put the right gear on to keep them comfortable. Even though it isn't usually associated with Snowboarding we like Obermeyer.
- Older siblings are great motivation!
- Do it on the kids schedule. They might last 5 minute or they might last 2hrs. Snowball fights are important!
- Explaining things is about worthless. Try different things to get their focus. High 5's, candy, toys. At a young age they are most likely only going to be able to turn by pointing so use the items above to try to make that happen.
