Cool New and Loving Snow Boarding in central PA

Hello Snow bunnies and fellow boarders.... I have just fell in love with this amazing sport... I live 30 min from the "highest skiable mountain" in PA... Blue knob ski resort... So far I have been up twice, I have learned so much on my own and a few friends. My second trip I was able to make it down the whole mountain without falling. My "first board" was a 2001 Burton Rippey with Rossignol sis bingings and boots... I had so much fun the 2 times that I went that I decided to sell that board and purchase a new board... Which is awesome... Its a 2011 Ride DH 2.o Limited edition with Ride Nitrate Contraband bindings and the LE boots to match..... I havent rode it yet but Im going to this weekend... If anyone is in the area I would love to make an event of going the rest of the season... If your in the Central PA or the surrounding area shoot me a message...

Hey Jersey Dude......know what you're getting into. Blue knob is great, I rode there from years (from Altoona), but I don't know if its worth the drive from the Philly/Jersey area. If you do go, check the base, with the snowfall. If there is a base and a foot falls, then there's all sorts of gnarly stuff to get caught-up in. However, if a foot falls ontop of crud snow, you'll be getting all sorts of gashes in your board. Personally, now that i live a little north of the Philly area, I just make a trip up to Vermont. And yes, because its the easiest for me to get to, I go to Killington. Mid-week killington after a snowfall isn't too bad....though can be pricey.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure you're not going to find year-round snow anywhere on the east coast. If you want summer snow start saving for a southern hemisphere trip! Pretty sure they've got glacier camps at whistler too.

Does anyone ever come to Blue Mountain?

Tuesday because i have no classes and no work haha.

and to needsnow, i know plenty well what im getting into at the knob. I like to ride places that are minimally developed. I know for about an hour more i can be in vermont, but Blue knob is somewhere i would like to ride at least a few times in my life.
