Choosing Your 2013 Winter Snowboard, Houston, Texas

‘Tis the season for outdoor winter activities like skiing and snowboarding. Whether you are hitting the slopes for the first time or a pro, you’re going to need the best in high-performance gear for optimal speed and technique. REI, the leading sports equipment store knows a thing or two about choosing the right snowboard this winter. There is a lot riding on the style, size, model, and shape of a snowboard that will impact your entire experience.

If you’re not sure of which snowboard to choose this season, REI has a few helpful suggestions:

  • All-Mountain: It doesn’t matter which part of the slope you plan to be on; these snowboards can be used for riding downhill or switch (either direction). Most snowboarders choose these types of boards, particularly beginners just learning the ropes.
  • Freestyle/Park: These snowboards are light, short, and flexible. They are perfect for experienced snowboarders who are really looking to push their limits.
  • Freeride: If you’re thinking of doing some backcountry terrain snowboarding this season, this is the board for you. They are perfect for riding on clumpy snow, and when traveling from top to bottom.
  • Powder: If you’re spending time in deep, puffy snow this winter, you’ll want a board with a wider waist. The outdoor sporting goods store carries a modest selection of these types of snowboards.

If you want to learn more about the type of snowboard you should be riding this winter, visit REI online. Feel free to stop into the store and speak with a member of their knowledgeable staff to determine which snowboard if going to give you the best ride this season.
