I just started snowboarding when I moved to Shasta County CA last year and am addicted. Maybe I will sell my car and take a hop over to NZ to take on some real snow.
I am a beginner and would love some patient souls to show me around this season. I already have my season pass for Shasta and plan to hit Ashland at least a few times. Mt Hood looks fun but everything I hear so far is that it is super crowded.
