If you could do a full season anywhere in the world, where would you go? If you're feeling adventurous, suggest two: one which you would do if you had a large sum of money saved, and a relatively inexpensive 'poor man' option.

I will rub in the fact that I live everyday for, and love my dirtbag snow riding lifestyle right where I am at, and only hope for more snow.

here are two I would do in a heartbeat.....

1.Japan alps and Hokkaido in a mobil hotel car Danchi style (4WD RV)

2. the Swiss alps as a rich tourist, ALL.SEASON.LONG.

Damn that is a tough fucking question...Off the top of my head though right now...

Large Sum - Would have to bury myself deep in interior BC with a truck, sled and cabin from November till March. Then I would head north to Alaska and blow whatever I have left on Helicopters and rent out another cabin for the inevitable down days that would consume most of the months of March and April.

I could go crazy trying to pick a single place to spend a season, especially when you throw in a decent amount of spending money. I think Europe would be high in consideration as well, not because of the terrain or snow - but because of the lifestyle you could live for a season. I'd go for France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany.

Damn this question sucks.

If I would be rich, Alaska with the heli

Inexpensive: Some stations in the French Alps (It's not a long drive for me as I live in Belgium). There are some really cheap skistations with an amazing backcountry I'm talking about stations with 80 km of pistes (mostly blue and red) and a huge amount of backcountry terrain

I do a full season every year in my favourite place, Queenstown NZ.

Sure theres much better snow almost anywhere else but for a full season its about much more than that.. I just love life down here, the parties, the women the work, the endless list of things to do when not snowboarding... love it!

The money no object season trip would be, a cat trip season in B.C. and a poor mans season would be at a B.C. resort Shames, Revelstoke or anything on the Powder Hwy. From reading the other posts, I think B.C. wins.

I lived in Switzerland and Northern B.C. (Terrace, Shames Mtn) before snowboards were even thought of and the amount and quality of snow B.C. used to get was crazy. Year after year the Ski magazines do a "Best Snow" reviews and every year B.C. is represented hardcore. I've spent the last 27 years riding BAKER and Stevens pass and let me tell you that Pacific Northwest Powder (Washington, B.C and Alaska) is as good or better then most of the snow world wide. I'm letting out a huge secret, I have to laugh when I hear non-northwest skiers/riders talk about the northwest not having good powder, I like to tell them "you're right, please plan your next trip else where"

Backpacking/splitboarding around Chile and Argentina, of course. Then I'd still have all season to play up here when I got back!
