Went Snowboarding Today

Postby Ian on Tue Apr 10, 2007 10:18 pm

Yep.. I went snowboarding today. In April. In Wisconsin.

Thanks to the crazy cold weather we're having, the ski hill by my house made some snow and reopened for a few days.

We're supposed to get 6-12" of snow tomorrow so I'll definitely be out there again. \:D/

Woohoo.. rode powder today. We rarely get ride powder in WI during the winter so riding it in April is a special treat. Good Morning America was even out there getting footage.

Here's a pic form their cam..

We're supposed to be getting a few inches of snow tonight in Ottawa, too.

I guess this this thread is a "Rave" about snowboarding?

I went snowboarding twice this year already in Flagstaff, AZ. We got a bunch of snow early in the winter season. Not sure if I'll be able to go again this year, but I would like to. :P

Yeah, I figured I'd rave about something for once. 8)

We hit 25°C today. Everything's green and the rape/Canola fields are already bright yellow.

Of course, we're a bit further north here than you guys. :o

If you watch that video, you might notice the storm system sweeping across the lower USA, causing storms above it. Phoenix is being hit HARD right now with some crazy dust and wind storms. I got pelleted in the face with sand and rocks while riding my bike home from work today. :o
