New snowboarder

Hey all! New snowboarder here, living a little west of Seattle. Started last january, last run was in late march. I went snowboarding at snoqualmie about 10-15 times in that time period. At LEAST once a week to snoqualmie central/alpental. I hit Crystal MT once on the snowboard, once on some rented ski's and equipment.

Just looking for some new/more people to go boarding with, I plan on going to snoqualmie about once or twice a week this season also. I go during the week and at night mostly however.

So, whats up the PNW!

I do plan on taking some trips to Crystal, Mt.Hood, and anywhere else thats worth going to!

If I were you I'd hit up Whistler Blackcomb. I've always wanted to try it out, but live in the Midwest.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner.

Do that, don't plan a trip there.
Chances are you time it shittily.

Not every day is mind blowing.

Have your gear ready to go, then one of those nights in winter, snow will be puking it's brains out.

Get up retardedly early, and go there.

That first 25 minute run of untouched powder, will bring tears to your eyes.
You'll never want to go home.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

I wish i could but I have school and its a 4 hour drive one way. So waking up at 3 am. Leaving at 4 am. Boarding at 9am. Leaving at lets say 4 pm. Getting home at 9 or 10 pm because food and traffic. Thats not easy for a 17 year old to do unless i went by myself.

I don't know what your thoughts on life are. But if you think you cannot make a four hour drive as a single college man w/ no kids, no wife and no real job. I'd say look out. Life is about to hit you in the face.

I can make a single 4 hour drive.

But im not sure if im able to see a night of powder. Get friends that are also willing to wake up at the crack of dawn and also have $100 or more ready to be dropped. Leave. Make a 4 hour trip at least. Snowboard for 8 hours. Then make another 4 hour trip home in the same day.

Im also 17 so i dont think i can even cross the border legally by myself without a parent. Plus im in school and working right now. Id love to do all this and i definitely could myself but i like doing stuff with people

I get the random trip, but surely you can plan one.
