Wolf Creek and Silverton have the best conditions in Colorado, but they have not had much snow as of late. In other words it sucks. Is he going to Washington as in DC or Washington the state of? Because if he's doing the latter, I'd just skip the stop in Colorado and go straight to Bellingham. Baker has been going off as of late.

I love it. This is my second season and it has held up well. Its a stiffer al mountain board but pushing down my 280 lbs makes it mid flex.... I plan to get a new on at the end of the season. Probably to a couple sizes bigger. This ones a 159w. It does OK in up to knee deep pow but I need some steeper terrain to stay in top if its deeper
