Hi! My name is Chris, and I am the “Cwalt” behind Cwalt’s Snowboard Reviews. I have been snowboarding for 4 years now and I have loved every second of it. Since the discovery of my new favorite activity, I have spent a great amount of time studying the snowboarding industry, working at Buckman’s Ski & Snowboard Shop in Reading, PA, and trying to learn as much as I can to get better. I would say that I am an Intermediate to Advanced level rider, except maybe in the park where I would say it is more beginner to intermediate level rider. I started this blog as a way to help others out and a way to keep away the winter pangs in the summertime. My goal is to give riders, who are either starting out or are trying to continue to progress their level of riding, reviews of gear that is both valuable and easy to understand. I also want to provide reviews of resorts, big and small, from all over North America, possibly with some international resorts in the future, with information on the quality of the riding, the crowds, the nightlife and food, and all of the other activities you might want to try at that resort. I hope you find this website both helpful and enjoyable!
