Does anyone have any experience with little ones and snowboarding? They only weigh about 26lbs. We have no skiiing experience either. What kind of board would you recommend for someone so little? Thanks!
But even the smallest kids can easily learn to ski. We bought the shortest skis we could find at a local ski swap ($10), and found a strap to tie the front points of the two skis together. In an hour or so (at Bryce) she was linking turns, and she could handle the rope tow fine (something I still struggle with on a snowboard).
This year I we will be trying my soon-to-be four-year-old son (about 40 pounds) out on the $10 ski-swap skis. We are excited about hitting the chairs at Whitetail. I figure it will be a few years before we try any snowboarding.

I'm not sure that they would have done nearly as well at boarding, at least not as fast as they took to skiing.
