Cramps when snowboarding can happen to beginners but also to more advanced snowboarders, specially at the beginning of the season, or to the ones who extend the days regularly, at the end of the day. But you can also get cramps while snowboarding just by pure dehydration. Just like on other sports, you will be more at risk of getting cramps while snowboarding if you are dehydrated or pushing your muscles beyond their usual type and amount of activity. So how to avoid cramps when snowboarding?
1 Get hydrated before your snowboard session and stay hydrated throughout.
2 Get a good physical preparation (legs and core) before going out to snowboard.
3 Use a more maneuverable snowboard: smaller, narrower, with a rocker profile.
Get those 3 thing done and you'll have fewer cramps when snowboarding, or none at all.
