Smile Anyone here snowboard/ski?

Are there any fellow snowboarders or skiers on the WTA message boards? I was just wondering, if so which do you do, and how often do you get to go.

I'll start, I'm a snowboarder (but originally a skier)... I try to go anywhere from 3 to 5 times every winter. Although lately I find myself wanting to go a little more.

Living in Florida, it's kinda hard to find snow.

But, I think I'm leaving in the next few days to go again. And if I didn't have class and stuff, I'd probably go and stay like an entire month or something. But as is right now, I have to pay to fly up... Pay to find a hotel, and it just gets to be a hassle to go as often as I like.

Usually when I go I stay at least a week, although over Christmas and my Birthday (very close together).. I managed to say two weeks.

lol same here

i usually go skiing once a year for about a week. i love to do it but once a year is more than enough though

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Martian Marri I ride goofy. I've been snowboarding for about 7 years now. (Before that I was a skier since age 8) I have a Palmer snowboard, although I saw a nice Burton in a shop I wanted.

Whenever I go it's to like Sugar Mtn in Banner Elk, NC since it's a short flight up. I also have been going to Lake Placid NY as of recently... but probably if I go in the next week or so it will be back to NC. I'd love to go to Colorado, I haven't been yet. If I knew I could get the time off from college without missing anything important I'd go in a heartbeat!

seabiscuit - I know a lot of skiers who dislike snowboarders. I used to be one of them However, I got into it when I was younger and it just kind of stuck with me. I think I'm safe though, I like Marti!

Martina I know skis, I wonder if she's tried snowboarding?

Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"
