This time of year I get super antsy. That fresh scent of impending snow makes the anticipation almost unbearable. I only make it worse by digging out all the old snowboard films and of course buying tickets to see the new ones. One of my favorites is Lame. A Film by Robotfood.
Which snowboard films get you psyched up for the season?
Yeah, I grew up watching Warren Miller Films with my family every year. Then I moved to Colorado for 8 years and in Vail for 4. This was always my favorite time of year...right before the comotion (and snow) hit. Then it was just mayhem (and hopefully powder) for 4 or 5 months.
Now I am out in california and I try to get back to Colorado each winter but I also hope to get to Tahoe this year. Where do you ride?
I live in the Phoenix area so the closest place is uasually Snowbowl (2+ hours) or Sunrise (4+ hours) away. Sunrise is worth the drive if you can go two days in a row. I usually vacation in Utah during Christmas and spring break. The snow and terance are great just like Colorado.
I have always had a dream to go to Telluride, every year I say that I'm going but it never works out.
Hey Active Belle
We got snow here in Arizona. It's not enough to ski on but its a start. I want to do a ski trip to Lake Tahoe and want to do a diffrent resort other than Heavely. Any suggestions?
Have you every heard any good things about Sugar Bowl? They have a lot of advanced runs and a fair amount of annual snow fall.
Check out the interactive ski map. http://sugar2.sugarbowl.com/trailmaps/sugarbowlmap.swf
Can't wait to get on the slopes!!
