You can try to slackline, balance beam, or skateboarding

SNOW
holly shiat, our temps are just hitting low 50's over night. The trees are starting to change colors and dark later so season change is upon us. Usually earliest we will hit the slopes, mostly man-made snow to boot is "black friday". Not all runs open but we still go.

Last years black friday outing


We get funny looks as we are flying down the freeway with the boards strapped to the roof,
and no snow in sight

That's what I do all summer, mid May-Oct. Nov. year before last was awesome. Was out on the lake on Nov 13th and it dumped on my local hill about 2 weeks later.

You should check and see if there are any cable parks close, I've never ridden one but they look fun as hell. You can even rent gear to get started. Either that or find a friend with a boat lol
