Anyone in the Seattle area looking for snowboard mates?

Sorry if this comes off as a bit pathetic. I'm currently at a local college, and most of my friends are at UW Seattle. While a lot of them do board, none of them are going up that often until winter break, and I'd like to hit up Stevens (or Snoqualmie) before then, as I plan on getting a student-pass.

I'm around the beginning stages of the intermediate level, or maybe the late stages of beginning. Part of the problem is I was using size 11 1/2 boots that a friend gave me for free, while I wear a size 8 1/2. I started last year, had one regular lesson on the bunny slope, then everything beyond that I just did by myself/with friends. Though, I've been doing very effective body weight workouts/HIIT cardio/gymnastics work since then, so I think I'll be able to do a lot better. I also now have some safety gear, to boost my confidence.

I've been on skyline, hogsback, some stuff on the backside, but nothing more than a blue.

I'm guessing most people on this board are way more advanced, but, even if you are just looking for people to carpool with, I'm fine with that. I live in Kenmore, so, preferably people in Bothell/Kenmore/woodinville/kirkland, but, if you make a short drive from Seattle to here, that's fine too. If anyone at all is looking, hit me up.

If you drive, I'm always down to meet up. Unfortunately though, you're not on my way to a hill. Stevens is great, especially the backside, but it's far for me so I don't get there as often as I do Snoqualmie or Crystal. Anyway, throw out a PM when you're going up, there's a fair amount of Washington folk on here, and the ones I've met and rode with have been great.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Potentially. I still need to get a pass (still heads or tails on snocomp or stevens), and I just ordered some new gear, which probably won't be here by then. If that changes, I can post here.

Seattle Ski & Snowboard Meetup (Seattle, WA) - Meetup

Came across this, if it interests anybody.
