I always figured, a ton of riding at a bad hill is better than a little riding at a good hill.
If I can get good riding crap, imagine the blast when you go somewhere good - great.
That is my plan. I am still new and have only been to Vermont for a look at good snow. Otherwise Mostly PA riding is what I have done. My plan is to just keep riding anywhere that has snow and take a big trip out to either Tahoe or maybe somewhere in Co or Utah when I get better.
