I want to go SNOWBOARDING!!!!

  1. I'm so mad, about half way through the season last year I got thoroughly addicted to snowboarding, so this year I decided to buy a season pass to my favorite resort (Mt Hood Meadows), but now even though they have plenty of snow to be open there was a flood that washed out the road going to the resort....UGH.

    So fine whatever I'll try some of the other resorts we have around here, I just got my new board Saturday and can't wait to take it up on the slopes, hmm, I have tomorrow off, checked the forecast, well of course RAIN with a chance of SNOW FLURRIES...GRRRRR!

    Oh well...just wondering if any other areas are having difficulties with a hopeful early season.

    Thanks for letting me vent...

    I'm sorry for your troubles Larry. Enjoy the season when it finally arrives.

    Think I'll go outside and work on my tan a bit.

    Might try calling the resort and asking, as a pass-holder, will there be any compensation for days lost, and have any arrangements been made for other resorts to temporarily honor the passes, and when do they think the road might be fixed????

    I hear ya! Good luck!!

    Yes there are some discounts on passes from surrounding resorts but not much really...I just had to whine a bit...I feel so much better now...lol.

    Yeah there's hardly any snow left here either, and I live on the supposed frozen prairies of canada. Temps have been above freezing so whatever snow there was is gone.

    Sorry you can't snowboard. But maybe if you get up on the roof with the board you can practice your jumps? I'm kidding - DO NOT do that.

    I've always wanted to learn how to ski or snowboard. I'd land on my *** and then be in traction for the rest of the winter. Did I mention I almost flunked gym class? Teacher told me if I caught the next fly ball she'd give me an A. Caught the ball, thank God.

    phew...I got my fix yesterday!!!

    Awesome snow and a beautiful day up at White Pass Washington. Still can't go to the resort I have a season pass to but that's fine because it gives me a chance to try all the other hills around here (a lot of different ski areas available).

    Let it snow, Let it snow...
