Summer time blues

OK, so this past month I have been losing sleep over the fact that I have at least 3 months until I can catch a chair to the top of the mountain...I am going crazy waiting for first snowfall and everyone I know thinks I'm crazy, looking forward to winter. What do you guys do to keep sane while the temp is above freezing? I could use some ideas.

Take a trip somewhere or hike some back country? Not sure how your local snow is

I'm pondering grabbing a pair of snowshoes and get some BC in this year. I just can't afford all that's involved with a splitboard...

I actually do alot of hiking and have found some epic spots. I just need more! I completely agree with you though! I would love to get a pair of snowshoes and grab some back country gear and head for the hills! Thanks for the input.

I go into the basement, strap on my board and practice my spins, ollie'ing onto my practice balance beam that Snowboard Addiciton showed in their video's. Helps me get my fix

longboard? Drink!!!

I know what you mean though. I was working with my friend, who is part of the group I snowboard with,today and we were yet again envisioning shredding the local mountain. I was thinking about all of the new natural features I wanted to hit this year and what I wanted to accomplish in the park. It sucks knowing i have 3 1/2-4 more months to wait!

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Longboarding is a lot of fun, and in many ways similar to snowboarding. Now that all the new gear is finally coming out though, I am dreaming of getting to the top of the mountain every night.

Does anyone have any ideas for things to do to prepare balance and whatnot during the summer before I hit the slopes?
