Default 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.

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!

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?
