TT Ski/Snowboard/Sledding Club!
 
If you live in an area where you can sled, ski or snowboard, talk about how awesome you are here.

Right now there's a strong storm in my area right now and tomorrow looks to have similar conditions to Antarctica, so no sled races until around Friday, possibly saturday. That sucks because then the snow has time to harden up. I can't dig into the snow and it'll be hard to maneuver, which is terrible when you're in a full-contact heat (my friends and I play hardcore sledding-you can ram, cause spinouts, etc. as long as you don't use your arms to push off the target.)

Discuss.

I loved it, have gone skiing 3 times.... only at Snowshoe Mt. at West Virginia, prolly one of the lamest places to ski for all you snobby skiers but I absolutely loved it, cant wait to go skiing again, but would love to upgrade to Lake Tahoe or Denver, somethin like that...

Sign me up---but add skating! I play hockey and cross-country ski.

Took a sled to my local sledding hill. Icy snow+bursts of sun melting snow= SUPER SPEED! :):):)

But if you have to bail out, it hurts like crazy. My hip feels like it's 55. :(

Lake Tahoe is in Nevada.... not California. Nice try.

Gonna go Monday, only know how to snowboard but am going to try to learn how to ski since it'll be an all day thing. I'll probably embarrass myself but it's a risk I'm willing to take :)

Good thread.

Snowboarding is definately one of my favorite sports, and it's been that way since about 14 years ago.

If I'm lucky I can start my season on saturday.

I do not qualify based on where I live, but I am an avid skier and receiver daily ski report and powder alerts - massive storms in Cali and Utah over the last few days

FloridaAG 12-15-2009 05:22 AM

Big time fail - do you think Squaw Valley is in Nevada?

GRANITECHIEF 12-22-2009 08:02 AM

Keeping the thread alive,

Looks nice in Lake Tahoe today after 0.5 to 1 ft of new snow last night.

And FYI, the boundary between Ca and Nv runs roughly through the middle of the lake.

I've lived in tahoe 11 years and yes it is paradise!

6 inches of fresh snow at my house, about a foot on the mountains.

Powder day takes the blues away!


Headed off to Heaven.....ly!

FloridaAG 12-22-2009 09:00 AM

Snowing in Utah today as well - haven't got any snow reports e-mailed to me yet. Probably a daily condition and powder alert tomorrow though - 6 weeks or so until my ski trip
