Should I repair this before riding?

Hey, I have this pretty bad core shot on the base of my board but was planning to go riding for the last time this season. Would riding this without repairing it first do a lot of damage to the board? If I should repair it should I also get it fully tuned or should I just base weld the gouge and leave the tuning for the next season? fairly new to snowboarding so any help would be great, Thanks.

i wouldnt ride on that. if the snow gets up in there it can lead to all kinds of crazy problems. i had a buddy who rode on a core shot like that one and his base started to delam...i didnt even know that was possible! if the snow is real dry it might not do anything but you probably shouldnt if you give a shit about that board. and the tuning... definitely get a base weld and maybe a wax but it doesnt really matter too much
