Xscape snowboarding queries??
to learn snowboarding, what options do you have? from what ive gathered, you either do the learn in a day, or 6 one hr lessons, or 2 lots of 2 hr fastrack lessons. is the 4 hr total fastrack equal to the separate 6 hours of lessons?? and if so which would be better to do?? any extra help would be appreciated!!
I would go for the six separate hours of lessons rather than the other two options. I dont know which Xscape you are going to use but i know the Milton Keynes learner slope is quite steep for a learner slope. I suppose it has to be like this though as they only have a relativly small amount of space and the slope needs to be both suitable for complete begineers and begineer riders that are progressing towards falling leaf, garlans,complete turns etc. The thing you will find when you are learning is that you are probably using musles that you rarely use and you will find yourself starting to ache after about an hour. Also especially in the first few lessons you have you will probably find that your feet and ancles will ache quite alot. This is because you will be constantly on an edge of your board to control your speed and also your posture will probably be a bit out as well, as most people tend to lean back too much when learning. On a relativly steep slope like the one at Milton Keynes its more likely than not your feet will hurt after a while. So i would definately not recommend trying to learn in a day and even the fasttrack lessons would probably be too much. Your better off going for the six hours and taking your time to learn properly. I learnt doing hour lessons and had no trouble picking off from where i had left off the previous lessons. You should learn quite quickly anyway at Xscape the staff there are very good. Good Luck
It all depends on how quick you learn.
If you have time, spread it out. Becuase who knows you may get injured, or sick.
Money wise it's around the same.
I did the two fast track lessons, which was fine. I'd think doing it all in a day would be a bit too intense, but if you are short of time this might be best (if you were going away soon).
If you do go for separate lessons (either hour long or two blocks) try not to leave too much time inbetween them or you'll spend the first half of your slope time going over skills you've already covered but have forgotten.
As a side note, the slope is quite small (and narrow) and not as good as learning at a resort, but the standard of teaching I experienced was very good.
I'd go for the fast track route...
it depends on the individual.......it took me two one and a half hour lesson to get it right.......but i was really sick the 1st time i snowboarded...i think i had a fever when i rode that day....horrible......
tip: never snowboard when you have a flu..........i learned it the hard way..
2 years of snowboarding and going on
It all depends on how fast you learn and how good your balance is..and how good your instructor is. I learned to snowboard in one 2 hour lesson and it was fine and i can snowboard simigood now. Research them all a bit more to find out which one would fit your needs and wants for learning to ride. good luck, have fun, and be safe
