Responded on

Depends on your kid. I would say that it is possible that he is, but most likely that he isn't. I've found that it is very usual that kids under 5 years don't have the capabilities that are needed in snowboarding. They cannot control their bodies enough. Although there are exeptions, but they are very rare. I would take my own son snowboarding in the age of 6, he has been skiing though already when he was 4. But I have been teaching snowboarding to kids and I feel bad when they get frustrated and some of them never wants to try again. So I wouldn't try too early with my own son.
