Some as young as five can start boarding. Many areas are doing terrain parks with small rolls and jumps just for us. Big kids can try their luck at bordercross or skateparks for a new challenge. Some areas even have night boarding, where you can howl at the moon.

    For Sanity's Sake: Give in. Snowboarding is here to stay. Most resorts offer snowboarding lessons to kids over seven and include rentals. Look for Burton Learn to Ride programs at resorts across the country. Be sure to get the right gear. Try renting first to find the right size board. Outerwear is very important. Get clothing big enough, but reinforced in the knees and rear so the kids don't spend the day wet and cold.


    Lessons: Choose a resort that caters to kids with a private learning area and a small student to instructor ratio.

    Gear: Consider these factors when buying a snowboard for a child: Length: Generally a kid's board should reach about chest high, because a shorter board is easier to handle. Take along extra gloves or mittens in your lunch backpack. Most gloves get swamped in an hour or two of wet snow.

    Clothing: When buying boardwear, look for fabric that is water and wind-resistant. Look for wind flaps to shield zippers, snug cuffs at wrists and ankles, collars that can be snugged up to the chin and drawstrings that can be adjusted to keep the wind out. Be careful not to leave strings dangling to catch on lifts.
