...everytime you see snow, you think of what your line of tricks will be and what to do next.

Haha, I wish I was gloating, alas, the snow is not here yet. Both NZ islands are having unseasonably warm dry weather so, not much snow. Im not sure that any of the fields are open yet to be honest, I know that Mt Ruapehu's web cams show that its still fairly bare half way up the main run.

A few of the Australian fields have opened up, but its slim pickings still. I've seen post by a few aussies on here that have brought and paid for tickets to NZ to go snow stunting at end of june, but its looking like the resorts will be open.

Still....the downhill MTB will be on...and thick wetsuit surfing or skating...

You go hiking late-Spring early-Summer, see some white-capped mountains off in the distance with some sweet chutes and think, "I wonder how hard it would be to hike that....).

-You beat college alcoholism purely by the fact it takes away from your "winter" money.
-You're in Shanghai and your first thought is "I wonder where the nearest hill is"
-You actually found a place in Shanghai and are taking the alcohol money to go there
-You don't see "No Friends on Powder Days" as a horrible lack of priorities, but as a golden rule.

...No matter how warm or nice the weather is, you can't help but hope for it to start getting cold.

When your driving around town and you are constantly looking at buildings and rails, seeing how hard it would be to jib them.

- you gain weight in the summer

- you get pissed off every time someone says something like "Man, I wish this snow would go away" or "It's so nice and warm outside"

- your casual winter coat is also your snowboarding jacket

- you own tons of Under Armor, Smart Wool, or similar products

- you have multiple goggles with different color lenses or a couple of goggles and tons of different lenses

- you're driving in a construction zone and have an urge to bonk a construction barrel

- you're car purchase is heavily dependent on how it handles in snowy conditions

- your jackets or snowboard pants still have lift tickets from a years ago on them

- you can give people excellent advice on how to dress warm for the winter

- you know other brands besides Burton

- you laugh when someone says "Burton makes the best gear, but Forum and Special Blend suck ass!" or "K2 boards are good quality, but Ride sucks."

Lol Leo those were some realistic ones... I had to chuckle a little bit..

You know you're a snowboarder when you're willing to try skateboarding again, hoping that it will cross over into your snowboarding progress...

That's why I haven't been around lol.

You know you're a snowboarder when..

- new people you meet ask you what the tan lines on your face are from

- you are walking into the store in a snowy parking lot smiling when everyone else is wincing

- you're the only car on the road in a "bad" snow storm

- you know the orthopedic doc by his first name

- you know SW is not the best snowboarder ever, regardless of what Sal Masekela says

- you talk to the TV when an announcer calls the wrong trick name

- summer starts sounding like bummer

- you hear a new song on the radio and think "SONG TO RIDE TO NEXT WINTER!!!"

- you bite your lip when someone refers to it as "skiboarding"

- you're more excited for a new snowboarding video to come out than a block-buster movie.

Me anyways.
