What is Biwako-Valley Snowboard School?
What is LTR snowboarding?
snowboard board shape
The structure makes it easier to catch snow on the surface rather than on the corners, making it difficult to fall down on mountain slopes and allowing you to glide smoothly.
The flexibility of a snowboard is the performance required for successive turns. By using twists, it is easy to control even at low speeds, and you can learn the basics of continuous turns.
Hard to get caught
We specially tuned the edges used for snowboarding brakes and turns. Because the edges are hard to catch, there are no unexpected movements, and you can enjoy sliding without fear.
