I'm right there with ya on this one. I was searching for boarding moies on netflix yesterday after dinner, choices really not good ended up watching some 2nd rate movie called "Chalet Girl" which really made me want to go watch a legit movie even more. I have tons of legit movies on my desktop PC (itunes) but hard drive crashed last week and i'm in process of replacing it. I'm itching for the snow to start falling. We're supposed to get our first snow fall in the mountain passes tonight or tomorrow night. We shall see.

Been glue to NOAA.org looking at weather condition for Wolf Creek (4hrs drive away). Debating on getting an End of Day Pass for Angel Fire (2hrs drive away, about 1hr east of Taos) for $399, which has no blackout days and if the world doesn't end on Dec. 21st, the pass will let you ride the mountain bike park, zipline and 2013 winter season.

I don't have a goal for days, just a goal to ride the best possible terrain. I'm on a mission across the country starting the last week of November. Just gave up the lease on my apartment, paid all bills for the next 4 months to cover me until I get back and I start work again(commercial fishing). Loading my split board and winter camping gear in the back of my truck and heading out. I live in SoCal and really the mountains here aren't doing it for me.

Headed areas of the country not so much resorts.
Colorado Rockies - Nov.24-Dec. 3rd
Jackson and the Tetons - Dec. 4th - Dec. 26th
Seattle and the Cascades Dec. 27th - Jan. 3rd
Mt. Bachlor and Hood - Jan. 4th - 10th
Tahoe area - Jan 11th - Jan 21st

I'm hoping for some good blue bird days, good snow and safe travel. My plans are real tentative, I'm chasing snow! Looking to link up with anyone around any of those places too! Its going to be an epic adventure. I can't wait for the snow to start really coming down. Super Stoked right now!!!! Totally obsessed, everything I do day to day is working toward this trip!

nice plan, dude.

I realize this is the wrong thread, but like last year I will be buying a season pass for Nozawa onsen in Nagano. Not sure how much I can get up there but should be at least 30 days. Will aim for 50.

Looking to up my airtime and jumping skills on natural features.
Get 3s with grabs locked down, front and backflips too all on natural hits with powder landings.

Can't wait to get in the white room. I may have 2 more months to wait, but when it comes here it comes big time.

Let me know when you'll be headed towards bachelor or hood. Slim chance I'll be at bachelor. But if I'm not there I'll be an hour from hood.

Snowolf is into hiking and split boarding stuff, ands good at it. He's local to hood as well.

Sounds like fun time you have ahead of you. We rode with a guy doing the same thing last year.

Dude enjoy Nagano! Thats awesome!

pdxrealtor - talked with Snowolf a bit. I plan on hitting him up when I get to the area. Sent you a msg as well with my contact info. I'll be there around the beginning of January. Really I haven't locked myself down to a single location in any state so I'd love to swing through.

(PNW) Got Gold season pass for Snoqualmie. I usually ride Crystal, however I've never been to Snoqualmie so decided the kid and I would hit it up this year. I heard Alpental is a blast and Summit Central has decent terrain park.
