    Skiing :down: Snowboarding :up: lol just kidding, I've been snowboarding for 15 years so have grown up with the whole skiers hating us snowboarders thing.

    The best time to go would be between late December and March, you'd get the best snow then. If you left it towards the end of the season (April, May) chances are the slopes would be quieter and the sun will be out but then the snow might not be as good.

    This site might help you out, loads of info on loads of resorts including what percentage of the runs are good for beginners, expert etc

    Thanks for the link Anon! So have you ever Skied? I mean I would do either Snowboard or Ski, I just presumed you would have to ski before you could snowboard?! Yeah i'm thinking maybe Jan - March whenever's the best deal!

    Yeah I skied for a good few years before I started snowboarding. I'd say it's easier to get the hang of snowboarding if you haven't skied before though. Both are good fun though so I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself whichever you do.

    If you want good deals you should look into going somewhere in Europe - places that you don't initially associate with ski trips (Bulgaria as Br3n mentioned) are usually great fun but still pretty cheap.

    If you go to Canada and get good snow nothing will ever compare! Except maybe Alaska or Japan.

    Theyre actually really different and I cant see learning to ski being much/if any of an advantage when learning to board. perhaps only because your familiar with snow/ice and the feeling?
