I'm Mike and i'm 26 years old and i've been snowboarding for over 10 years. I'm from upstate New York but my being in the Air Force has brought me out to the Sacramento, CA area which is awesome for me because Lake Tahoe is about an hour and a half away, another plus side is that almost all mountains are free for me being in the military(see there are some perks )

Hi, I am Jason and am 26 years old. Born and raised in southern Maine. I started snowboarding 4 years ago and believe my biggest regret is not starting when i was younger. Snowboarding is the most enjoyable thing i do and look forward to it all year.

So far my best experiences have been at Bretton Woods and Loon Mtn. This year I am planning a 3 or 4 day trip with some friends up to Jay Peak.

I'm Christina, I'm 26 and I live in Fairbanks Alaska. I'm from Southwest Virginia and moved up here this summer. I'd love to get together with people up here to go ride - especially anyone that does backcountry and can show me the ropes. I've been boarding for a little over a year and last season I hit the slopes on a nearly weekly basis - so I'd say I'm a beginner/intermediate rider. I caught right on and am trying to navigate terrain parks at this point and take on some big slopes to shred.

So.... Welcome to hell... If you haven't learned it yet, you will... Fairbanks sux... The only thing cool there is the Barnes & Nobles and the ice sculptures they have in winter. They build slides made of ice.. Pretty good fun. Anchorage is a bit better. Plus it is close to alyeska. =) Hatcher's pass is awesome for backcountry that you can drive to. Even better if you have a friend with a sled. I hear Valdez is epic and there are plenty of backcountry tour companies to choose from. I suggest you take an avalanche awareness class atleast before you hit the backcountry... Better to take the full 2 day course though.. Oh yeah... My name is Brian. 33. Always looking for people to ride with. =)

I know the boarding here in the banks will suck - but I really love Fairbanks. If I moved anywhere else in AK - it would probably be to Kenai or Southeast. I'm not a huge fan of Anchorage - but I'm hoping it'll do me well when it comes to getting some boarding in. I used to drive 6 or 7 hours every month back home to visit friends so the drive isn't a problem -- but its the staying somewhere and hoping the weather is good enough to get to and from ANC back home. I REALLY need a snow machine... just not in the budget this winter.

I take it you mostly hit up snowshoe then? It's gonna be your best bet out there without traveling north north-- its where I spent most of my time boarding because it was only 3 hrs from me. Winterplace in WV sucks but was mega close-- but if they actually get good snow hit it up immediately. Thats where I learned to board -- and it was like boarding on ice. First time I went to UT I was in flippin heaven boarding out there! Remember that the powder out west is going to rock your world for better and for worse -- you'll have to make adjustments for sure.
