NICHOLAS VAN SLUYTMAN
I started snowboarding as an older participant with no background in it or any activities like it (skiing, skateboarding, etc.). I was looking for a way to embrace winter rather than hibernate from it. After two years of driving my daughters and myself up to Barrie for our lessons, my daughters dropped out to pursue other activities, leaving me on my own for snowboarding. I discovered NTSC through a friend, and my snowboarding (and winters) has flourished!
I no longer waste energy driving in traffic or through snow storms to enjoy my winter activity. Relax on the bus to the resort, participate in the free two hour lesson in the morning (by the way, I now TEACH snowboarding with NTSC), socialize at lunch, ride with friends in the afternoon, relax on the bus ride home. Also, I knew no one in the club when I started. Just by going regularly on day trips and participating in charter trips, I now have many “snow friends” whom I enjoy seeing every winter.
Feel free to use my blueprint above to get the most out of winter and NTSC!
