Wrath, it's good to get out of your backyard here and there. I am perfectly happy with the goods I get (when the season is normal at least) around here. It's fun to get out to different spots. There is nothing that rules 'em all. There is just a 'hella of a lot of fun stuff to do. Road trips are part of the fun of snowboarding.
Of course it's all up to you. I certainly don't go out of my way to travel outside of Colorado (Or far within state) if it's a hassle.
Sir, ur right...I guess this year decided to spend my travel budget to do a modest trip under the rope.
