Summer Is Not The Off-Season

By May 30, 2014

canyons-snowboarder.jpgWe often fall into the same trap. Snowboarding season ends and we forget about it until the next fall when the snow starts to fall and reminds us of our favorite pastime.

That's a mistake.

Summer is not the snowboarding off-season. It's just a different snowboarding season.

I spent the last month writing posts that will prove that point.

First, I found more than a dozen places you can snowboard -- both on snow and in training centres -- this summer: six epic destinations abroad and seven awesome spots in North America, including one dreamy looking heliboarding tour in Alaska.

If you can't make the time or spare the time or money to visit any of those places, then now is the time to think about what you're going to do next season. To help you with that choice, I wrote reviews of the two resorts where I've been spent most of my time this year: Canyons and Snowbird in Utah.

I also wrote an article about how to go snowboarding in Vancouver on a budget to help you plan a trip for next year.

Even if you're not going to go snowboarding this summer, you can start working on making next season the best of your life by training properly. To help, I wrote about exercises you can do at the gym to max out next year's performance.

If the gym isn't your style, I have something for you too. I found seven sports for off season training to help you enjoy your summer and get ready for next year.

I hope this helps you to plan a snowboarding-positive summer and figure out how you're going to make the most of next season.
