The cons far outweigh the pros.
I think the only way I'd be doing it, is if I met a local that has actually ridden Mauna Kea, has a 4x4 and extra gear that fits me. aka I'm staying at the beach.

World class surfing or shitty snowboarding with lava rock death waiting underneath?
Maybe do it just to say you did, but other than that, go surfing. Plus, don't think that thing doesn't avalanche. It does. And when it does, remember that lava rock death awaiting? Yeah, not good.

|Joe77||A friend will have to bring you to the summit. It's a steep incline on loose volcanic gravel so rent a 4WD. It's a great view up there.|

Snowboarding in Hawaii
Has anybody ever rode in Hawaii (Mauna Kea)?
I'm in Honolulu for a week at the end of the month.
