screw summer
 
i ride at white pass mostly and they have had an amazing season of powder especially in late march. But now comes april and decides to melt all the snow and no new snow comes so your riding on sub par snow. which sucks if your spoiled by amazing PNW powder. SO i hope a HUGE snow storm comes in over the week and i skip school and go ride some powder. even though its very unlikely in Mid-April. Since its like 50 degrees up at white pass. I guess my season is over which im depressed about and here comes boring summer.

Or you could just take a quick trip south to Hood. Or just hike for some turns, get some friends and build a jump, set up some jibs.

You live in the PNW and you think summer is boring????? learn to think outside the box dude. Between summer riding, back packing, rafting, fishing, canoeing, wake boarding, wind surfing, kite boarding, rock climbing, mountaineering, hunting, camping, etc etc. anyone who calls summer here boring has no imagination.

Sorry to say this but snowboarding is NOT the only thing in life. I love the powder days too, but I am ready for sunny, hot, dry weather and back packing in the Goat Rocks and Eagle Cap Wilderness areas and white water rafting on the rivers.

When you get the itch to ride some really great park, come to Timberline. The summer parks are great. I love White Pass too, but Timberline has the best parks in the PNW and July and August riding is fantastic up there. The Florida guy I feel for, but if you live in the PNW, there is no reason you have to give up boarding just because its summer...;)

eh my parents wouldn't like that since im still a freshman. But I appreciate your offer man
