Arsenal, hope have a awesome trip. I agree, the PNW is sick. Every boarder should visit Baker before they die. Baker has your steeps, Stevens and Crystal too. But also, Tahoe kicks ass too. So many epic mountains so close, Kirkwood is sick with massive dumps of light pow. Also, if you can spring it, there is helicopter snowboarding through Pacific Crest Heli. Whatever you choose have fun and detail your trip.
