I have never done any skiing or snowboarding before and now that I live pretty close to a (2 hour drive) ski resort, I would like to learn how. I am just a little worried that I might be a bit old and it could be dangerous as I have less flexibility than a kid and if I break something, it will take much longer to heal. Obviously I am not going to just go get some equipment and try to learn on my own, I'll hire an instructor for a weekend or two but I wanted to ask if anyone has been in a similar situation? Also I have some windsurfing experience (intermediate) so I am wondering if that could be an advantage in snowboarding and improve my chances in keeping balance, etc.
i live in a country with a batshit crazy president and no, english is not my first language
