New from Manhattan

I'm new to the sport and the forums! I grew up in the Caribbean so didn't really experience winter sports. A few winters ago I took my first boarding trip and was hooked from the start!

Currently live in Manhattan so planning on some trips around here but want to go out West at least twice this season.

Looking forward to being part of the community!

Haha! I'm new but have been out West and up in North Carolina to board. So I could see the difference. Not sure what to expect up in the Northeast but I am not complaining as long as I'm boarding.

My first trip was to Jackson Hole and I also did a trip out to Utah - Snowbird, Brighton, and Solitude. I didn't feel worthy of hitting those since I was just learning but it was awesome!

Hopefully it isn't too icy here in the Northeast.

I saw that. I'm planning to join you on December 10th for the day trip. I have a few buddies who want to do a trip.

I'm also planning on joining for the overnight trips if possible

An islander who's into winter sports! Do you get the "what the hell is wrong with you?!" comments too? My family is from PR and I get that all the time. Apparently I'm supposed to love the sun?

I'm from Queens so I can't help you with shops in the city. I mostly order online anyway lol
