May also want to check out Schweitzer if you decide on Spokane.

Check out White Pass, WAY better than Snoqualmie and Mission Ridge. The have it all, LOTS of back country, terrain park (with at least 12+ features) small half pipe, sweet huge lodge in front and a ski/board only yurt on the back ( Thats the only way you can get to it) and great brew's

I'm with them on this one, I think you'd love it. I'm sure you've heard about the south backcountry that crystal opened two years ago. Sounds like its right up your alley if you like riding inbounds but backcountry feel.

PNW people are always pissy, it kinda sucks. And were pansy's when it comes to snow. Everybody freak out about how slick the roads are and they close the pass so its easy to have your plans ruined or be stuck for a day or two.

I like white pass cause they always have the best snow, not many people, and cheaper then everywhere else. It's fairly small but I think they're expanding their back country. They have a really small park, and a mini park for when you're just learning.

I don't know anybody in Washington who rides park or jibs. All my friends just go with cruising tree runs or bombing a clear line (hard to do at crystal with all the snobs)

Crystal kinda sucks in my opinion. I went to Colorado earlier this season (first time outside Washington) and its....horrible here to say the least. Since I got back I haven't hit any good snow.

Just read this thread and thought I'd see if any opinions of the riding in the PNW has changed now that winter decided to arrive in the spring.

I just rode 15 inches of untracked powder in Alpental's BC for 4 hours yesterday...no lines and powder for days. Tons of BC is chair accessable with minimal hiking/traversing required, if any. $350 for a season's pass and only 45 minutes from downtown seattle...30 from my house.

As a college student, season passes at Snoqualmie (including Alpental) are only like $250. It's pretty sweet having a decent hill only 45 minutes from your dorm/apartment. And on powder days, Alpental's BC is as good as any.

But as much as I like snowboarding, don't make your college decision on just snowboarding
