25 minutes?! FAK!! The closest mountain to me is 1.5 hours away and that's in GOOD traffic so I only get to ride on the weekends
Ouch! That's dedication. You have my sympathy.
SnowBun's got a subway ride, then a train ride and then a car ride before she gets to the nearest hill. If she wants to be there for a place to open on Sat morn, she's got to leave her place @ midnight... literally.
