|One Year Old Masters a Snowboard|
There is some debate about what the appropriate age is to begin letting your child ride a snowboard. There really is no hard and fast rule; it depends on the kid.
The average age is around 7 years old when kids start really developing some core strength and coordination and have enough muscle mass yet to really control the board.
Toddlers can learn to snowboard, but it requires a lot of time and effort, and most likely private lessons to get them to stay on the board for any amount of time. It really depends on the individual youths physical development whether they are successful or not.
It sure seems glamorous, but there is more to dressing for a ski trip than simply getting noticed wearing the latest high dollar ski clothing with a designer label.
When the temperature is hovering around freezing the name of the game is to stay warm. I am not suggesting that great looking ski clothing isn't capable of keeping you warm. It most certainly can. But there are other measures you can take to keep yourself warm and comfortable while roaming about the slopes.
Let's take a look at some tips on dressing for skiing that will protect you from the elements without breaking the bank. I doubt that any of these suggestions will have the paparazzi tripping over themselves to take your picture but at least you'll be warm and comfortable.
|College Logo on Skis - Why Not?|
People love to show their team pride. Professional and College sports logos can be found on nearly everything that will hold ink or thread.
Team logos can be found on Shirts, Hats, Coffee Mugs and Bumper Stickers. Heck, here in Virginia Beach there are more Virginia Tech T-Shirts and bumper stickers than folks wearing those cheesy shirts the tourists buy from the Oceanfront shops.
But how about snow sports equipment. I have never seen a Snow Ski or Snowboard emblazoned with graphics of a Pro or College team. I see it as a potential Mother lode for someone willing to tap into this market.
