Why You Should Snowboard!

Hello folks, I'm going to tell you why you should hop on the snowboarding train. Snowboarding is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world, so if you aren't tough enough you can just leave this page now. You have to be able bear the freezing cold winters. You have to have really good balance to stay upright and be able to turn.

Snowboarding isn't very Expensive

Because of the earth's tilt in the winter time, the most direct rays of sunlight hits 90 degrees at 23.5 S. So we are not getting the most direct rays of sun so the temperature is very cold in Pennsylvania thus causing snow. Since it only snows one season out of the year to buy equipment for one season out of the year which will save you money. You can't buy equipment to use in the spring, fall or summer cause there is no snow to snowboard on. Plus when in the winter the mountains are steeper because of the earth's tilt. The earth's tilt also effects the angle in which the suns rays and light are hitting.

Earth's Orbital Path

You probably didn't know but the earth's orbital path directly relates to snowboarding. The orbital path of earth around the sun is similar to the path you take around a tree while going down a mountain. Earth is going around the sun just like you are going around rocks and trees.

Earth's distance from the Sun and it's effects on the seasons.

Earth's distance from the sun doesn't play that big of a part on the seasons. You would think that the earth would be closer in the summer because its warm outside but that not true, earths actually closer in the winter and fall time when its colder.

How the seasons are scientifically similar.

They affect the activities we do, the foods we crave, the clothes we wear — and quite often, the moods we are in. They all have weather and are the same length.

How the seasons are scientifically different

The seasons are scientifically different because of the tilt, weather and temperature. All the seasons have different kinds of weather. You don't have to worry about buying snowboarding equipment in the summer.
