Hey guys
I'm new to the forum, and I'm from the North Mississippi area. I have been into the sport for some time now. So I wanted to stop by and say hey!

Welcome,
Can we assume you grew up in the north :dunno:

Since it's quite warm where you are where do you travel to get your riding fix?

Well I have grew up in Mississippi all my life. I got interested in the sport when I watched Shaun White on tv. Then I started watching snowboarding shows on fuel tv (back when it showed action sports) like Danny And The Dingo etc. Most skiers and snowboarders around here go to Ober Gatlinburg, Tn or Cloudmont in Al.

Cloudmont Ski and Golf Resort - Home

There are ski areas in all but 2 us states.....
Counting Mississippi? Mississippi has a mountain, but its a little more than a hill. Some people go up there and ski when it does snow. Its very dangerous up there. The road up is hazardous, and is a gravel road. I couldn't imagine driving up it during a winter storm.

Hill, mountain, what ever you call it I never would have dreamed you would have snow in MS.

@ Argo, I don't not believe you but I still find this hard to believe....

Yea Ms gets pretty good snow amounts around here especially in February and early march. Usually its 5 to 6in but its a little. Woodall Mountain (the highest point in Ms) gets a little more snow than any other part of the state gets. It has a "run" if you want to call it that...

Seriously? Alright thinking about going up there on my senior trip, ill definitely give you a holler. Have you ever shredded cloudmount in Al before? If so which do you like better?
I haven't honestly. Ober is only 45 minutes away from my house so i mainly ride there. If you can, head to sugar or beech in NC instead of Ober. Much better places with less tourists. Cataloochee isn't bad shredding either, but not as good as beech and sugar.
