While I do enjoy sitting on some caribbean beach doing nothing but drinking and snorkeling, flying around the world to snowboard is way more appealing.
The way I look at any vacation that I have the chance to do (fiscally and away from work) I simply ask myself, Will I regret this if I don't do it? We don't get the opportunity to do really cool shit all the time, so the chances I do get I whole heartedly embrace to do something new and different.
Not always snowboarding, I backpacked the Zion Narrows this past year, phenomenal experience. As was posted above; you're only young once. I won't be hiking 14 miles with 30 pounds of shit when I'm 40.
