Mountainboarding – Keep On Snowboarding In The Off Season

By Baxter Wells

Snowboarding is lots of fun. You get to carve down slopes, shred the snow, and ride the lifts back up again and again. Many snowboarders love winter and look forward to it in the off season.

When the snow melts, snowboarders put their board and gear away until the winter months come again. They allow themselves to get rusty until the snow falls again.

To keep your sharp skills from getting dull in the off season there is a cool sport called mountainboarding that you can try. It can help you stay sharp in the off season and even work on improving yourself so when winter rolls around you can be even better than when you were when winter ended.

Mountainboarding is similar to skateboarding or longboarding except it has large inflatable tires that allow it to easily ride over rougher terrain. You can ride it on grass, dirt, gravel, packed sand, and pavement. It will easily roll over small rocks and sticks.

A mountainboard most often will have foot straps. The foot straps on it are usually one of two kinds. Either it will be the kind where you can just step into and out of easily, or it will be the kind like a snowboard, where you have to ratchet and lock your feet in.

Why is it a good off season training tool? For starters, when the snow leaves, you can keep on riding the slopes in the spring, summer and fall months. Normally you would have to wait to have fun until winter, but this way you can enjoy the spring, summer, and fall months.

Instead of learning new tricks and then putting them on hold until the snow comes back, why don’t you continue to perfect them on a mountainboard? That way when winter rolls around again you can hop on your snowboard and even be better than you were last winter.

The bottom line is that a mountainboard can be an excellent tool for learning new tricks, and staying sharp in the off season. A mountainboard can be taken off of jumps, used on rails, and you can pull off all sorts of freestyle tricks and practice new ones. Dirt and grass aren’t the same as snow, but at least this way you get to have fun in the spring, summer, and fall months doing something other than getting rusty.

For any snowboarder that is looking for a way that they can keep on having fun in the off season with a board sport that will help them continue to improve, I recommend you try mountainboarding.

Are you interested in improving your snowboarding skills in the off season? If yes, then check out the extreme sport of mountainboarding and also watch lots of mountainboarding videos.
