    go someplace for skiing/snowboarding

    This a question on how to use snowboading in a sentence.
    Is it OK to say;
    1. I want to go Boulder for snowboarding.
    2. I want to go snowboading in Boulder.
    *the speaker does not live in Boulder.


    Thanks a lot,

    Tack

    #2 is better than #1 but you might hear both.
