Snowboarding and children

You wouldn’t say, be it windy or sunny, children have no problem learning to snowboard. On 22.12.2015, all the installations in Sinaia were closed due to the wind, but at Burton Riglet Park at the base of the Valea Soarelui slope in Sinaia, things were totally different: no wind, only sun and peace. Ariana is only 3 years old and she enjoys every time she snowboards. This was the second time.

After the two events Welcome Winter ’16 and World Snowboard Day in which the children’s play was different from the usual “amusement park”, not a few parents agreed with the idea that the little one is never too small for snowboarding. Catinca from Brasov, at only 2 years old, is another example:


Everything is disguised by the term play and children will acquire the first notions of snowboarding easily. A specially arranged place with adequate equipment (snowboards from 70cm), will make us forget the idea that at an early age the little one must learn to ski first. Technology has evolved, so our mindsets must keep up. The child will catch the bug and he will definitely remember that “when he was little” he first snowboarded and he liked it.
