My First Time Snowboarding

Updated: May 1, 2020


I just had the most exciting weekend. I went snowboarding for the first time. Major WOW .... I have been skiing since I am 3 years old, but last weekend (December 14 & 15, 2019) when we went up to Andorra I asked my parents if I could try snowboarding.

We went up with my parents and the family of my best friend Cristina. As always we go to El Tarter in Grandvalira. Our parents had booked a beginners class for the both of us.

DAY 1 - First ever time snowboarding

I was really excited, trying the boots and getting my board , at Viladomat, just down the hill from our amazing chalet in El Tarter (check out Kabano Andorra).

The board was really cool, from Burton with astronauts and robots on it ...

Ready to go riding for the first time ever, with my super cool Burton snowboard.

The first day we both spent a lot of time on our bums. But we had great fun. Our teacher was amazing, showing us really well. And he was super fun and cool. His name is Carlos, in case you are looking a beginners level snowboard teacher.

Day 1, one of the first times down the piste. Woohooh!

I really liked snowboarding, even more then skiing I think. Carlos, our instructor, thought I had done it a few times before. But no it was my first time (at 7 years old).

We were both exhausted at the end of the day. But really happy. We learned the basics ...

In the evening we went for dinner with our parents to Foc i Lloc in El Tarter. Cristina and me played and took selfies 🎬📸😍.

DAY 2 - Second day snowboarding

We are all geared up and ready to go for our second day of beginners snowboard class. We can't wait to go with Carlos.

Carlos taught us many new things, and we had a lot of fun again snowboarding. He is a really good instructor!

At the end of the day after class, we practiced a bit more. It went very well. Take a look at the videos below. 😎🤘

Its going well, I think I am getting the hang of this ...

Yes, snowboarding is totally my thing ...

I really liked snowboarding. Actually I prefer it much more then skiing. I asked my parents right away if next time we would go to the snow, I could snowboard again. 👀

I can't wait 🤩

Bye bye,
