As a beginner snowboarder you’ll want to start on a conveyor belt or gondola because riding on chairlifts or tow-ropes are more difficult and challenging. 

At a resort there’s all types of ways to get around. Let’s talk about resort transportation. There are three types of aerial lifts there’s chair lifts gondolas and trams/gondolas and trams you actually take your equipment off and then enter into the car. A chair lift you keep your equipment on. You go into the line you sit down and then at the top you stand up and snowboard off. A ground lift such as a Pommel, T-bar or conveyor belt are usually going to be around the mountain where it’s just a very small little distance where you need to get say like 50 meters/yards being polled or it’s flat for a hundred yards/meters when you come down to a section where you’ve run out of a vertical and you need to go up to continue to get to the bottom. A tow-rope is just what it sounds like a rope that tows you. You keep your equipment on and you grab onto it and it pulls you up the mountain. A T-bar is similar to that it’s except it’s running on a wire. You’ll grab onto it & hold on to it. Pommel is very similar to that as well those are all lifts where you hold on to them. There are conveyor belts that you see out on the Beginner Hill where you’re  just like a conveyor like at the airport or something your equipment rides right onto it and it pulls you along.

As a beginner you’ll probably like the slow conveyor belt and as you improve you’ll want lifts that are fast accessing steeper deeper terrain.You can signup to get access to all of our snowboard lessons, study guides, text books, glossary, tests and direct feedback from your coach.
