annabananasplit Thanks for the welcome, guys! I feel like if I had started my season two months earlier like everyone else up here I'd have more days than I do! Next season I'm going for 50. Big dreams...

I'm originally from California and I seriously moved away from Oregon more than once because I just didn't think I could handle the winter rain-fest. I made a friend last year who is infatuated with snowboarding and he took me up when all my friends wouldn't, and pretty much created a monster, lol. I love the mountain and the community and being on a board flying down the mountain! Now when it rains I get excited thinking about all the snow that must be dumping up on Hood haha.

Do you go rafting in Oregon, Snowolf? I haven't been often but we have gone to the Deschutes a few times and it was super fun. I'm trying to gather ideas on how to best enjoy a summer in Oregon away from the "real beach."

HoboMaster 27 days for your first season is pretty impressive, you must be hooked. I have to admit, if I didn't love snowboarding so much I would definitely not be living in a place where it's generally cold 9 months of the year, but the beach just can't replace living next to a mountain. Welcome!

new rider on mt hood -- hi everyone!

I joined the forums a bit ago but haven't posted yet... I figured it was about time I said hi!

I'm Annie and I live in Portland and I snowboard on Mt. Hood (Meadows and Timberline so far). This is actually my first season snowboarding but I've pretty much fallen in love with it and I can't wait to progress more. I used to hate winter (I'm a beach bum), but I LOVED this winter. Got 27 days in since New Years Day and it's still snowing up here so I will get more in for sure.

Hopefully I'll meet some new people, learn some new stuff and find some way to get my snowboarding fix during the few months I can't ride
