Wake up at 3am, leave by 3:30 am, drive 5 hours, boarding by 9am, get to the hotel 5pm, sleep, wake up 6:30am, start boarding at 8am, leave the mtn at 4 pm, drive home 5 hours, get home about 10:30 pm...EVERY WEEKEND.
Plus we pack ourselves into one car so were all smushed together for the full 5 hours cause its cheaper to take small cars and pack ourselves then take 2 cars or 1 truck. Plus Im the only girl of the group so I always gotta sit in the smallest tightest spot....
Im not complaining though...its always a great time and soooooooooo worth it lol. Plus the people I go with are hilarious so it makes it that much better
If I'm only going up for a day trip then the 1.5 hours it takes me to get to the closest mountain is more than enough. If I'm going to overnight it though, I would be willing to drive the 3 hours or more for any of the other mountains around me.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Damn, well I guess its a matter of priorities, if going out and getting drunk every weekend with the same ol people at the same ol bar with the same dirty drunk ass bitches and waking up all fucked up feeling shitty is more important then getting fresh tracks and shredding the better mountains as much as possible before the season ends then thats on you playa Id rather save the drunk nights for the summer when its even better and the girlies wear less also which is a plus. but the 4+ hrs we do everyweeked is not for day trips we leave sat morn 3.am board all day get a cheap room, eat sleep, wake up board all day sunday then do the drive back. its really not that bad, and def worth it.
If only I had a car, I might be able to make decisions like that. But sadly I don't, so I'm at the mercy of my friends. I'm also a girl, so I don't really agree with the part about 'girlies wearing less' being a plus :P but I do agree that summer nights out are better anyway. Maybe I just need to get new friends.
Day trip... 2.5 hours to Kicking Horse is the most. I usually hit Sunshine which is 75 minutes or so away. It's ~2 hours to Lake Louise to get the board chewed up by jagged rocks, so I rarely go there.
Revy is ~4 hours, perfect for a weekend trip.
The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...
most recently ive been driving up to mount snow saturday for a day trip lol.
its about 7 hours but its definitely worth it. their conditions are much better in the lower half of pa, even though were on the ice coast.
yeah traffic in new york is always variable when we go, but were still well outside of the major traffic spots just slows down but its like that down near baltimore a lot too so im kinda use to it
Well I thought I would be one of the worst but it seems like my drive is pretty average. Its about 3.5 each way for me. The only sad part is I'm not driving to any mountains. I'm drivin all that way to get to a 300-600ft. vertical haha. 2 minute chair rides and 30 second runs.
I could ride up and board down in the time it takes to wait in line just to get on the damn lifts usually.
