Snowboarding is a relatively new sport, that took its first steps during the 70's and has since earned many followers, especially throughout Europe and America. It is qualified as an extreme sport, sharing the same space as skiing, and consists of travelling sliding (or snaking) across snow with both feet strapped to a board.
Snowboarding has been an Olympic sport since 1998, the year it was recognised as such. The basic equipment needed is a snowboard, boots and fixing equipment. Nowadays, snowboarding enjoys a huge following, who grace the slopes across the world, most notably in Europe, with many found on the Alps and the Pyrenees.
Its also worth noting that these places also double up as fantastic places to visit during the summer months where it is possible to hike, climb and cycle, as well as partake in many other adventure sports.
