Thanks guys. I guess I was just looking at it like Utah, Colorado, and Oregon being like snowboarder Meccas- One of the things you just have to experience at one time or another.
I agree that these places are the snowboarding meccas, but dont limit your season to a week.
3 months of ok boarding is better than 1 week of POSSIBLE gold.
