Born and raised in Chicago. I've been on/off snowboard for a few years. It started with skateboarding on the streets of Chicago to indoor half pipe at Rotation Station in Rockford, IL (old school, but good times). Somehow I transitioned my love for skateboarding to snowboarding. Now, I find myself dreaming about a weekend trips for some non-stop action. I've hit all the resorts in CO (except Vail, to rich for my blood), and I've been further north to BC and Calgary. I have an itch and can't wait for the next ride down the mountain. Looking forward to posting and learning from this forum. Thanks for having me.
