I'm in the Detroit area, and most of my local riding will be at Mt. Holly. My older son (turned 6 this summer) is switching to snowboard this year. (He was on skis that past two seasons.) And we're planning to put my younger son (turns 4 this winter) on skis and see how that goes.

I'm hoping for two "big trips" this season. One will likely be Sugarbush, VT, between Christmas and New Year's (yeah, I know...). The other will be the first week of April when my older son has spring break -- that will be Vermont again, depending on conditions, or maybe, just maybe, somewhere in Colorado. There might be a few long weekend trips to Nubs Nob (MI), Bristol (NY), or Seven Springs (PA).

Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.

Bought my epic local pass not to long ago and looking for houses in Breck to rent so if all goes well you can find me shredding with the infamous angry snowboarder this winter and hopefully some of the summer. Put an application in to be a freestyle coach at woodward at copper as well so just waiting for a response from them.

EPIC Pass. Only got 15 or 16 days in last season, hoping to get 25+ this year.

My group is looking for a condo / house to rent for the season so we don't have to deal with the damn i70 traffic every weekend.

I've got the snowboard bug, and its bad. In the past I had only gone once a year for a day or two, and only on 4 different occasions. After my first couple times on the mountain I recognized snowboarding as one of the most pure & enjoyable things I've ever done. Last season I started the my first day of the season with an accident that put me out for the whole season. I've been crazy eager to go back ever since. I've just bought my first setup, which includes a helmet this season I plan to spend the 1st and 3rd weekends of each month in Big Bear (Socal) and make up for lost time and then some.

I want to work my way up to either pipe or park, and I hope to be reasonably comfortable in one by the end of the season.

Woke up to about 2" of fresh snow outside (it'll probably all melt by this afternoon, but its still snow). It was 83 degrees out just 2 days ago.

I'm ready for snow.

I picked up a pass to a ton of resorts in my state this season so I'll be riding our "big" resorts on multiple long weekends a month and stray Fridays and the commuter hills during the week when I can after work.

Gas will be my only expense. I'm stoked.

I'm also looking to get out to Lake Louise in late December pending my wife getting her green card before then. I've been in the mountains in the summer in Banff but that was before I began riding.


Goals:
  • Improve switch riding
  • Grabs on the kickers instead of my current straight airs
  • Perfect my boardslides and add a few more tricks to my boxes (50/50'd last season and almost have boardslide dialed in)
  • Tamedog
  • 50mph barrier (currently at 46mph top speed)

What happened to that plan of yours, it sounded perfect.

You should just decide to do it and stop thinking about the distance. Once you get it done you'll be glad you did.
