Still had great fun, just soaking wet at the end of the day.

Oh, and I'm new here as well. I've been snowboarding for about 12 years I think?? but I took about a 3 year break. Just starting to get back in and realized how much I missed it. I have made a commitment to really get advanced at it since I consider myself intermediate right now.

Looking to get a new board as mine is over 10 years old. Love riding and love the great advice on this forum.

Hi! I'm surrounded by skiers and want to find some snowboarders to ride with! This is my first full season of riding in the Seattle area, my home mountain is Stevens, but enjoy most of the area mountains. I especially need someone to go with into the side country! I learned to snowboard in the PA "mountains" and spent about eight years on east coast slopes. Looking forward to learning more/different things from the people in the PNW.

Hi everyone. The name is Bob and I'm new to snowboarding (2 lessons last year & 1 this year). It's taking me a little longer to get it down, probably due to the age (62), but starting to have some fun. Ride a local area (Highland Hills) but looking forward to a Colorado trip the end of March.

All you gotta do is make up for lost time. I highly recommend shredding your way through retirement. Good on ya!

Looks like I've been dethroned

Guess you can start calling me whippersnapper.

Hey all,


I live in Tacoma and I am 17. I started snowboarding when I was like 8(whatever the min age at Crystal was). I wasn't too interested in it when I first started, but then 3 years ago I went on a trip to Baker and something made me realize that this is kickass.

Since I don't have a license, I usually take the Crystal bus from Tacoma. I'm always looking for people to ride with.I am intermediate. I ride whatever the conditions are best for or whatever I feel like whether it's park or powder.

Hit me up!

HI been on the forum for a little while but never introduced myself.
I am a 4th season female rider from Australia that has battled a few injuries along the way on and off the hill.
I live and work in Whistler and have been for over 3 years. It was my first season ever in 09 and I feel like I should have progressed a lot more than I have so I am looking to really make some progression this year especially in Freestyle. hopefully.
....If you are ever up, I am always keen to ride with new people.

Just visited and left Whistler for the first time last week. If you get a chance you should try some of the BC interior and Alberta resorts. We have great terrain, fluffy powder, and far less people! Great for progressing...
