Snowboard Fred

postby minto » 11/18/13 @ 12:08

What up - Who here Snowboards?

Iv been boarding for ever. Local slope an hour from me, best place in the UK is 2 hours from me, ALL touge roads there and back, loads of hairpins such nice roads, no cops.. but anyway. Snowboarding.

Whats your setup? Where do you ride? Where have you been that you'd go again?
Iv been to France a few times, was pretty epic times to be honest.

My current setup (Again like longboards, I change OFTEN!)

I used to a ton when I was living in Michigan, then stopped when I moved to Florida, went to Utah right before I moved back and have really wanted to start back up again.

I have some old ass Flow boots and bindings on a short Burton board (6ft riding a 156). It sucks living around all these mountains and only going once a year. Damn priorities.

I know nothing on America's weather, or climate.. Which parts of America are good for lots of snow fall?

So weird.. When I was little I was educated that ALL of America was hot. Always sunny.. no rain no snow.. How my eyes are opened meow lol.

Cascade mountain range. BC, Washington, Oregon has tons of epic places to ride. I haven't gone in years though. It's too expensive for me nowadays and the closest decent places are 2.5-4 hours away from my place. Having to pay $60 or more for a lift ticket is bullshit in my mind. Plus the petrol to get there and back.
Western Washington's climate is quite similar to most of the UK, except we tend to get hotter summers.
