So i got my new paintball gun. As i was oogling it in my room, i glanced over at my snowboard. Then it hit me. How awesome would it be to have a paintball game on a mountain, strapped to a snowboard? Probably wont be competitive, but it would be wicked fun. Thoughts? Strategies? Sell the idea and make millions?

You aren't the first person to think of this idea.

The thought is cool but I think it would turn out poorly. First, when you're snoboarding with a group of people you're not all going to be super close to each other. Some people will be behind, off to the sides, etc. This means if you're trying to shoot at someone behind you or to the side of you, you aren't looking ahead of you, or at your surroundings in general, which is 100% necessary at all times. It's very easy to catch a snag in the snow/ice or lose your balance snowboarding as is. Second, the odds of actually hitting someone else are remote, and dont forget about eye protection. I don't know if snowboard goggles have the same regulations as PB goggles but I doubt it. The lenses in my goggles are much thinner than in my Grills.
Then what happens if you do take a spill? Land on your gun and you can injure or shoot yourself, and probably damage the gun. Hoppers or feednecks would snap easily with that much momentum.
I do understand that it would be cool to snowboard down a mountain with a paintball gun, but probably not worth the risks. Maybe a downhill slolem style target range would be best, but your focus should still be on your surroundings.

I just try to fulfill what the military conciders when they look for a sniper. ...their major concern is over all accuracy, physical stamina, patience, ability to acquire top secret clearance, and prior experience in paintball and/or hunting...

Haha, joked with my girlfriend when we were older and bought some land I'd start my own paintball field and she could have some stables...then I said: We'll train them like warhorses, cover them in armour, and ride them into battle against rentals ;) hahaha she was like FRAG no.

snowboarding combined with paintball just sounds dangerous...and, I mean, I feel like it wouldn't be competative enough to make it fun....

Horses on the otherhand...that could be epic, some ground troops with some guys on horses, for a civil war style game
"I could be your third wheel."
"You know that's not a good thing right?"
"Of course it is, it adds more grip, greater stability"

Yeah, the horses might no be to happy....although, I mean how often would they be hit in the eyes? Making automatic windshield wipers...and as long as they had some stuff to protect them from the pain. It would be expensive, but good.
