damn I wish everyone in the country... for the world in fact could come ride East Coast in North Carolina.... JUST TO SEE how bad we've got it compared to everyone else... Excluding the 2010 winter... we had an amazing year like I've never seen. I've been riding for 9 years now, and in those 9 years I've rode groomed up, icy ass mountains, time after time after time. I hear everyone complain about bad winters out west and shit... if an epic rider is produced out of the NC they would be unstoppable. I can't tell you how many friends I've had come to NC and board here with me, and not be able to ride it because of conditions, yet when I get out of the state and board I ride just as well as they can. I guess when you handle the worst you ride like the best. ? agreed?
