Let It Snow!!!! Winter Sports Thread
« on: January 07, 2014, 04:19:57 pm »
I wanna hear all about your winter sports adventures ie skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice climbing, sledding.  We can discuss gear, mountains, trails, conditions etc...

This does not mean I wanna see photos of you writing your name in the snow. Although if would be quote amusing.

Alright guys let it rain.  Roger I especially wanna hear from you.

@twin I have been skiing so much. I have no time for hiking. Sad but, true. We will hike beginning of March. I am really looking forward to it. If you are up for skiing let me know. Will take you up on that offer in a second.

Looking forward to a hike in March. I have never been on skis. One winter sport I played alot was hockey.

I'm in MN waiting for this lovely deep freeze to warm up some so I can finish working on my van.  As soon as that's done I'll be heading to Montana for a few weeks to ski it up, hoping to get some good snow at some point :)

5*F today felt almost comfortable, this weekend will be amazing at low 30s

Agreed. My firm shut down its offices both today and Monday. I'm like, "we're in Minnesota in winter. How is cold weather a surprise?" Of course I just threw on some Iron Heart and went about my day...

Two regular ventures and one venture switchboard. Fucking sick man. Silvertons finest boards right there

Where do you live?

Probably the best boards on the market. Ohio, but I'm considering  a life change closer to mountains. I know people that live in silverton, so I have been hip to venture for awhile.
