Default Where to snowboard during the 3rd week of March

Just wondering what everyone's suggestions were for places to go snowboarding mid-March. I want to plan a trip with some friends for our spring break, but honestly I only know the big mountains - I'm a noob...and from TX! We r going to be a group of intermediates and beginners, and if you guys can suggest somewhere we can drive to that would be great! Thanks.

Probably one of the best months to come the Canadian rockies. Plus the drinking age is 18!

Can you remind me which territory the drinking age is 18 in? I know that all the other ones in Canada are actually 19.
(Not that it matters anymore since the b-day came and went, but I had an interesting experience at an airport over the summer... )

To the op- being that you are in texas, your best bet as far as driving would probably be somewhere in colorado, although that is still one hell of a long drive, i guess, depending on where you are in Texas. Lots of Texans at Vail. If you are in western Texas, you might want to opt for something in New Mexico. Taos is one helluva mountain, but probably not good for noobs, too steep. Try Angelfire or Ski Santa Fe. I don't know what type of conditions they have in March, check the national weather service for 5 year averages.

no way! I live in Maine & spring riding here is great! my best day of riding EVARRRR was in April of '07 at Sugarloaf in Maine. 75 degrees & 20 something trails still open. I was in absolute heaven! my last day of riding one year was May 5th...

Alberta is 18 I think BC is as well. Ontario is 19 but their resorts are shit!

Banff would be good for a spring break trip as the nightlife is great plus the snow is still 100% at this stage.

If you have any questions let me know.
