Yeah Mike & I are tossing that idea around too since we could legitimately hit Marquette Mountain en route to Brule, Norway and Blackjack. I think all 4 of those are on the Gold Card list, too.

hikeswithdogs We got our seasons at Brighton(Big Cottonwood Canyon SLC) again this year but the girlfriend is getting a job at Solitude instead of going back to Snowbird(she hated it there) so we hope to both have passes at Brighton and Solitude giving us access to all the terrain between the resorts and more options on weekends, solitude is also normally less busy than Brighton and I'm in love with their sidecountry and mostly deserted runs........also it will make sharing ONE vehicle and both of us working\playing in the same canyon MUCH MUCH easier.

My goal this year to safely explore every inch of inbounds and side\back country of Big Cottonwood canyon and shred the gnar with Snowvols and company as we'll be living like gnar trolls in his basement bedroom :-)

Really want to learn how to get better at filming(and editing) so we can have an epic video to remember when the seasons done.

You should just decide to do it and stop thinking about the distance. Once you get it done you'll be glad you did.

sabatoa I picked up a pass to a ton of resorts in my state this season so I'll be riding our "big" resorts on multiple long weekends a month and stray Fridays and the commuter hills during the week when I can after work.

Gas will be my only expense. I'm stoked.

I'm also looking to get out to Lake Louise in late December pending my wife getting her green card before then. I've been in the mountains in the summer in Banff but that was before I began riding.


Goals:
  • Improve switch riding
  • Grabs on the kickers instead of my current straight airs
  • Perfect my boardslides and add a few more tricks to my boxes (50/50'd last season and almost have boardslide dialed in)
  • Tamedog
  • 50mph barrier (currently at 46mph top speed)

turbospartan Woke up to about 2" of fresh snow outside (it'll probably all melt by this afternoon, but its still snow). It was 83 degrees out just 2 days ago.

I'm ready for snow.

onthefence I've got the snowboard bug, and its bad. In the past I had only gone once a year for a day or two, and only on 4 different occasions. After my first couple times on the mountain I recognized snowboarding as one of the most pure & enjoyable things I've ever done. Last season I started the my first day of the season with an accident that put me out for the whole season. I've been crazy eager to go back ever since. I've just bought my first setup, which includes a helmet this season I plan to spend the 1st and 3rd weekends of each month in Big Bear (Socal) and make up for lost time and then some.

I want to work my way up to either pipe or park, and I hope to be reasonably comfortable in one by the end of the season.

turbospartan EPIC Pass. Only got 15 or 16 days in last season, hoping to get 25+ this year.

My group is looking for a condo / house to rent for the season so we don't have to deal with the damn i70 traffic every weekend.
