Whats up! I'm Nick Barnes and I LOVE snowboarding! I first hit the slopes when I was 6 years old and haven't stopped since. I was born on the east coast but also love some good powder runs through the rockies. Usually at the resort you will either find me on a super flexible board, jibbin through the park with the other parkrats, or on a super stiff board, dropping in on the steepest double blacks, carving the heck outta the mountain! I truly love all aspects of snowboarding and all terrains!
One of my biggest passions in life is sharing this awesome sport that we do with others, so I have been a snowboard instructor for the past 9 years! During my time teaching snowboarding I have experienced so much, and have tried to help grow and share the sport as much as I can! I've taught everyone from beginners, to snowboard cross racers, to parkrats, and everything in between.
Other than teaching people how to snowboard I also have the responsibility of teaching people ABOUT snowboards. From how to tune, sharpen, and Ptex, to how to find the right length, flexibility, and board shape, and anything else you can imagine. Because of this I have an extensive knowledge of snowboards and am looking to help in any way I can with that knowledge! My passion truly is to share snowboarding, and with me as your curated expert we will work together to get you the absolute best board and gear to fit your riding style :)
