The lack of fresh snow in Tahoe should be no reason to stop your snowboard training for the year. A true snowboarder is always ready to drop everything and run when that perfect storm rolls in. This year at DIAKADI, we have gotten some great use out of the Rolo Board for prepping our snowboarders for the mountain. Where most balance boards only rock side-side (left to right), the Rolo Board has multiple roller attachments, the most important one training our athletes to control the board as it moves anterior/posterior (front to back), thus perfectly simulating the heel-toe rock of your snowboard as you head down the mountain. I warn you, be ready for it. The board can take a bit to get used to... so be ready to tame the bull in the beginning.
Good luck and keep an eye out for that perfect storm!
