Be welcome! Try www.snowworld.com website. They have two locations in The
Netherlands. The one in Landgraaf (near Maastricht) is more than 500
meters indoor. They also just got new rental stuff.

No real resort as Holland lacks mountains and lacks reliable snow. When
enough snow falls for people to try their snowboard gear outside in the
park it will be on the news, after the item about the total traffic chaos
caused by this snow.

But we do have places where you can learn snowboarding:

- indoor pistes with giant cooling installations causing snow.

- outdoor pistes with plastic brushes doing an imitation of snow.

Both have their pros and cons for learning snowboarding.

An overview can be found at http://ski-banen.startpagina.nl/

This information is all in Dutch for as far as I can see, and most of those
places will have websites only in Dutch.

Are you planning to stay in a certain area of the country?

Oh by the way: the christmas holiday weeks are the weeks most of those
places have special courses for kids or other people going on their first
wintersport holiday and therefore the places will be crowded.

Snowplanet Spaarnwoude is reachable by bus from Amsterdam (and Haarlem).

http://www.snowplanet.nl/

Which has a bit of their website in English

http://www.snowplanet.nl/?pag=713

Working isn't very popular in that part of the year but going shopping is
quite popular.

(also if you can tell me usually what is the weather in that dates ?)


Rainy, cold, but probably not freezing.

You could consider Winterberg in Germany (http://www.winterberg.de/).
Unfortunately, the website is only in Dutch and German.

Don't know, I'm sorry. I'm more at home in the south.

If you can invest two or more days:

Check out if you can't catch a cheap flight to Austria (Innsbruck).
There will be snow enough in the alps and you'll get to most of the
places by train (the rest of the way). For example Zillertal.
France is not easily reachable by train/plane and it will be more
expensive. Maybe the swiss alps ...

In Germany there will be certainly not enough real snow by christmas.
Maybe deep in the south, but if you go to the Schwarzwald, it is only
200km more to the alps
