How to Snowboard : Snowboarding With a Rope Tow

Hi, my name is Matt Vansteenis and on behalf
of Expert Village we are going to learn how to snowboard today at Cannonsburg Ski Resort
in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan. In this segment, we’ll show you how to do the rope
tow. There’s two different ways to do the rope tow: with the rope behind you and the
rope in front of you. We’ll do the rope behind you first. So, like I said, I’m left foot
forward, which is regular, so as I skate up to the rope tow, skate up with my foot behind
me, wait for the rope to come to me, put it in your front hand, put it behind you and
just grab onto it very slowly with both hands until you grip onto it good and it starts
pulling you up the hill. The thing to remember too, when you’re riding the rope tow, always
keep those shoulders straight, so parallel with everything else that’s below you and
you just let the rope do the work. Don’t try to fight it, don’t try to turn, just kind
of sit back, and enjoy the ride.
