Default Hey

Hey all
I have been lurking for a week or so. I have been snowboarding for 18 years and live in Washington state. I am just getting my kids into it now (I just turned 30). I live in Spokane and regularly ride Mt Spokane, Schweitzer, Silver, 49, Whitewater, etc. Look forward to reading some of the threads here and throwing some old man knowledge at some of you youngins.
Peace

Kinda strange. Nothing until mid December, then we got dumped on for 6 weeks straight. But then in late January until early March, nothing. Mountains were super icy. But it is weird, it is snowing right now and weather is calling for 80 degrees by Saturday. Nothing like spring...

yeah, we had a janky season in slc, as well. thank god for our march/april snows or we would have been truly fucked without water (to make it through the summer months). having said this, it's flaking at the bird right now.

Yeah, I just got an invite to ride Park City next year for a week. Pretty excited. Now I gotta save up for that trip, my yearly Mexico trip, my season pass and my Canada riding trips. Not enough dough to go around!!!!
LOL

whatever you do, DO NOT waste your time/money riding park city. the canyons (about seven miles away) is fun-remember you can stay in that coke hole of a town but don't go to park shitty.

riding the canyons is like this:

YouTube - Log Jibs, The Canyons, 007 stick line, 2003

riding at park city will leave you with this type of experience:

YouTube - WORLDS SECOND HARDEST SKATEBOARD TRICK

never support a resort/company that boycotted you-a snowboarder-up until 2002 (so they could be awarded the olympic pipe). boycott that flat-ass, icey, shit scene.
thanks for trying, come again p.c.m.r.
