Default Where is closest place to ride in the summer???

Hey guys, where is the closest physical location national or international to snowboard in the summer? Is there ANYWHERE in the US? Or Maybe northern Canada? South America?

Here in the Northwest we have Timberline Lodge in Oregon. Their website is timberlinelodge.com. Personally, I have never ridden during the summer (too much golfing) but do ride it during the winter. There are a handful of other NW riders on this site so they can chime in with their experience. SnoWolf can most likely give you a good breakdown of the summer experience!

"Las Leñas" in Mendoza, Argentina, South America.
Its winter in the Southern Hemisphere and the resort & powder is first class!

it's actually the blackcomb glacier but only one t-bar run is open for public use. the rest of it is reserved for the camp of champions.

i hear chile is the place to go ride in the summer.

NZ would be my pick, but last season I made a road trip up to Timberline and it was a blast.
