Heavenly Ski & Snowboard foundation coach Ed McClain has a new way to teach snowboarding….he does it in Tumbleweed Gymnastics Gym on Thursday evenings. No you won’t learn how to carve a turn, but if you need help landing your back side 540, then this is the ticket.  The secret to many of the top performing aerial artist, in both skiing and snowboarding is a gymnastic back ground.  If your serious about your sport, then you must include working out in a gymnastic gym to increase your chances of landing your tricks.  If you in the area check out tumbleweed gymnastics off of Airport road, in gardnerville Nevada or find a gymnastic gym in your own home town, make some new friends, have some fun, and sharpen your aerial awearness.
