I learnt to snowboard in Switzerland with mates in a tiny little place called Braunwald....
I learnt the normal way of sticking a board on and being pushed down the mountain by mates.
As a lefty the first thing I learnt was I'm a regular rider... Everything pointed to me being a goofy rider (not just my teeth) my true leading foot woz the other one :)
It only took about 1-2hrs to work out why the hell I couldn't stand up. Once I'd switched the board around it took some 3 days to convert me from a skier to a boarder and I've never looked back.
I'll post up some photo of the crazy Braunwald Nuns and some friends soon.
You can't compare Braunwald with large resorts, it's a mountain with lifts I was a great place to go off piste.
