Do you think that skiing is boring?, that snowboarding is so 1990′s?, would you like to get close and personal with the snow?, then airboarding is for you.
An airboard is basically a reinforced inflatable boogie board for the snow, you just strap on a helmet (you will need it!), lie on the board, grab the handholds, and see where the slopes take you.
Steering is a good idea, and like skiing and snowboarding this is accomplished by shifting your weight.
If you want to try out airboarding you can buy an airboard from backcountry.com for $269.
