Chad Boulter loves to snowboard during the winter. He’s a professional musician living and working in Jupiter, Florida, but he has former bandmates and friends dotted around the United States who let him stay with them so he can get to the snow when he can as well. Like many snowboarders, he started his obsession as a skier. Over time and over many runs down double-diamond courses in many locations throughout the United States and beyond, Chad Boulter was introduced to snowboarding by his friends. The transition was troubling to him at first, but since then, he’s embraced snowboarding as his favorite winter sport.
Chad Boulter still loves to ski, but he never travels to the mountains without his snowboard. Although the debate rages on between snowboarders and skiers in many circles, Boulter is firm in his belief that both are excellent sources of fun on the slope. He insists that he loves both equally. One aspect of snowboarding that separates it from skiing in his book is the separated snowboarding areas now common in skiing areas. He finds that he has more options to go through obstacle courses and challenge himself to runs and feats of increasing difficulty with a snowboard.
Chad Boulter doesn’t lament his home in Florida during the winter months, but he loves to get out to the snow whenever he can to test his snowboarding and skiing skills.
