When Do You Start Snowboarding Again?

I just ended my first season and I already have the itch.

Just curious, when do you start going snowboarding again? And where?

The new snowboarding season couldn't come fast enough!

For me fortunately it hasn't ended yet, I still have one more trip to MT.hood in May. But unfortunately my season starts late, I say about January 1, and it will either be to Utah, Whistler, Colorado or Jackson, it really depends on the snow conditions. For the next year I guess I am going to do it less only two trips, I have to save up money to move to probably Colorado in August permanently.

Hmmm, my season doesn't end. With our indoor snow slope, I have that option all year round. Okay, but technically probably won't be on a mountain again until at least January 09.

Sweet! What indoor slope are you talking about? I was in Scotland no less than 2 weeks ago for business. I was visited the outdoor ski slope at the Aberdeen Snowsports Centre. I also went to the Glenshee Ski Center a couple of times.

January 09?!?! Is there no where to go with adequate snow around Thanksgiving?

Happy offseason!

i'll proabably start in december on a little fake snow hill, i'm not sure when they open, but there's a couple around me. i'm pretty sure there's somwhere you can go in late november, depending on how much snow there is this year. mt. hood always comes to mind when i think of boarding at uncommon times of the year. i'm sure someone on this forum will know for sure.

Am talking about SnoZone Scotland, at Xscape Braehead in Glasgow. I am only a 25-30 min car ride from there so it's really handy.

Personally, I quit going regularly around the first of June; I get into white water rafting season then and run the rivers through October. I do hit Tline at least once a month all summer and also hike for some turns in the Cascades.
How is the snow over there on Mount Hood during the off season? I have to scratch my snowboarding itch in the summer atleast once!

I love riding in the warm sunny clear weather as well, so it is just genearlly fun!
I am very interested in checking this out. Would flying into Portland Airport be the best way? What are the closest hotel accommodations to Palmer?
