Re: snowboarding for absolute beginners

flumserberg is close to zurich and should suit your needs.

www.flumserberg.ch

reachable by public transport from zurich, a train with one change required, or about 45 minutes by car.

you should be able to get lessons there, im sure you can call a number on the website to find more info.

you can also use the search function on this forum, there is probably plenty more general info here.

good luck, and have a go mate, its well worth the effort!!

Also try Hoch Ybrig.

http://www.hoch-ybrig.ch/index.cfm?s...age=142&lang=D

My nephew recently visited and he learnt to snowboard there. Took him 3 days to pick it up without lessons. I also sent them to the end of Grutstr. in Oberiberg, above Hoch Ybrig. There's a big car park and lake right at the end of the road and they could practice there on a small slope without buying a lift ticket.

There's a sticky on easy day trips from Zurich. Most resorts offer snowboarding lessons and I would suggest calling ahead and booking a time.

Good luck.

I wouldn't learn snowboarding in hoch-ybrig. go to a smaller resort first, like Brunni.: www.brunnialpthal.ch

I learned how to snowboard from scratch at Hoch-ybrig. I think it is a great resort to learn, but I would suggest going to a flatter area for a day or two first!

Re: snowboarding for absolute beginners

Hi.

I live in Neuchatel and have no idea about snowboarding. I have no equpiment either. But I am more than certain that I want to learn and do some snow boarding this winter.

I am willing to take lessons as well. The point is, I dont own a car and have to do all by public transport. Even if it is uncomfortable with public transport, i have all the desire I need to do it. I just need the right medium. i.e the right info from where and what and how I need to see while buying equipement. And then some lessons as in how to do it.

I have been in Swiss for some time now, but never had the chance to do snow boarding due to some reason. Just wanna do it now.

Any kinda assistance will be appreciated.

Thanks
Amit

Amden, Arvenbuehl is would be really good to learn. There is a seat lift and a pull lift there. The pull lift has a slightly flatter slope then the seat lift, but the seat lift will be a touch easier to use when you are learning to snowboard. There is a snowsports school in Amden too if you wanted to get lessons.
