Where I live the most pow we've gotten was 24in in a day. But that was two years ago and it was the first time that much snow fell in about 30 years, according to the news. Yeah Central Ohio sucks. Our mt, Mad River Mountain, is not even a mt it is a hill with 300 ft. verticle drop. Louie Vito started out here.

Mountain stats, if your interested
 
Its the largest in Ohio.

thats how it is.. the terrain is in every direction, right away.

*CLAIM ALERT*

you guys should be seeing some more juneau footage in the new absinthe movie this year.. they were in town for a long time.  gigi, jp solberg, dcp, wille yli-luoma, oli gagnon, MFM, even saw travice rice, and im sure there are a couple im forgetting.

so hard not to turn into an over excited pro ho, but when most of your favorite riders happen to be riding at your place all at the same time, and when i rode with gigi and jp and dcp.. you gotta give me a break and let me get excited.  especially when gigi saw the pirates sticker on my car and yells to me "hey pirate!"  just about pooped my pants.

I also find a change can be a lot of fun too as long as you have a few days to ride it. If you are only riding it for a day it seems like you just start to understand it and then you have to go. When you go for a few days you really get to learn what is fun on that kind of snow.

as far as resort riding goes, I would take jackson or a couple other rocky mtn resorts before AK.  Never been in the bc of AK so even if I went, I would probably not survive.  I think most of us probably prefer our home resorts and what we know (at least in a few states).  For those who don't mind hiking, you can also ride year round here...not the best, but it's still snow.  damn I need some snow.

not quite year round riding if thats what you were implying.  closest you get to that is a place like hood with all the camps.

but yeah, do what you love.  dont get into a job that YOU dont really like... whats the point in that?  its fully possible to make a living doing something you truly enjoy.

i would love to go there maybe for a week trip or somthing but a little far for me haha.  seems like you've got a great place to live with some sick guys and allot of snow.  id love to live somewhere that i could ride year round but right now im thinking more about college.  hopefully i can get some job in the industry because i love snowboarding and i wanna be succesfull while still having  a job that respects my need to take off on a pow day.

i have this theory about the PNW... if you didnt grow up riding here and riding this kind of terrain and snow, its not uncommon to not enjoy it when you first try it out.  but the people who have ridden here for years love it like no other, cause we know how to ride it and take advantage of it, and people from champaigne-pow-land are kinda lost.  ive seen this theory play its self out many times.

PNW dudes/dudettes will probably agree with this theory at least to a certain extent.

point being, when i really think about it, i get kinda worried that im stoking the desire for you guys to come too much without keeping that "theory" in mind.. i wouldnt want people to come and be like "what the hell, this sucks" or something.  plus, we all know how much PNW weather changes....

doubt it would happen though, cause theres always SOMETHING fun for everyone, and chances are i have nothing to worry about, but you never know.  and just the get-together would be fun on its own in the first place, so...

just something that crosses my mind once in a while...

i went to park city last winter for about a week we got about 15 inches and then on chirstmas we got about two feet combined with gail force winds led to some super deep drifts.  I specifically remember moving to the side of a trail and just slashing through this 5 foot deep drift.  Only one lift was open and there were under 100 people on the mountain id say.  For about half a run there was a complete white out andi could only see white every direction i loooked but i knew the only thing i front of me was untouched pow.  probably the most fun ive ever had snowboarding.  plus i was riding with borther and cousin which is a rare opportunity and we just had soo much fun.  I wish i had demoed a fish or smthn for the trip cuz i was stuck riding my JJ 156 but it was so fun.  best day of my life so far.  only bummer of the trip was the they had just gotten most of their sno for the season so all the bowls were closed due to avalanche triggering but i have regrets.  I might need to move to park city at some point.  The canyons is super fun.  Natural halfpipes are soo sick haha.

Hit it on the head.  Tahoe snow (even new snow) is general pretty heavy since the resort elevations aren't that high, but if you're lucky you can get in on some excellent snow when the snow line falls.  I had some epic days at Sugar Bowl (during Bruizzapalooza), Sierra, and Squaw this past year.  Going into the trees and slightly off piste areas (no true backcountry), I found spots that easily would have put me up to my armpits or neck had I fallen.

im sure a lot of it is the lake... the places with super light stuff have super light stuff because it comes in over the land and all the moisture gets sucked out of it as it travels, and then it dumps dry snow.  with tahoe, a lot of the moisture probably comes from the lake, and if its not directly from there, the clouds that are passing over probably pick some of it up or something.  cali is also a coastal state, even if the resorts arent right on the ocean.

and its funny that you say the elevation isnt that high, cause my resort is 2600 at the peak, wheras the elevation of the base of lake tahoe is just over 4500 roughly.  but we are also a lot further north, so elevation isnt as important for getting a lot of snow.

my resort is on the coast, a very short distance from the open ocean relative to most places in the world (probably about 60 miles).. and its technically on douglas island, so its totally surrounded by water.  on the back side, you could ride down to the ocean (but it would be a bitch of a hike back up).. if youve seen most of my videos or posts from this season, youve seen the backside and the water down there.

we get snow just like the rest of the PNW and apparently tahoe as well, but we still get those light days in the heart of winter when its colder.

our lightest snow is still heavier than the light stuff in utah/etc.  i dont think i would like it there if it was that light all the time... i like the medium stuff where its not HEAVY but you can still push against it and get some power out of it, as opposed to blower that just goes everywhere and you fluff through it..

that real dry stuff also doesnt stick to terrain for shit.  if it werent for the moisture, even in our really "dry" snow, we wouldnt have nearly the amount of killer terrain we have.. that goes for  most of the PNW.

One day last season at Vail, we were riding in about  2 and 1/2 feet of pow on the backside of the mountain. Highlight of the season. Also have been to Jackson Hole with average amount of snow, but left right before a huge powder day Cry 
Scientists say because of global warming they expect the world's oceans to rise four and a half feet. The scientists say this can mean only one thing - Gary Coleman is going to drown.

Although one guy I know was saying a great white hangs out around the nuclear power plant area all year long...that kinda scared me more than the thought of radiation poisoning.  


Does it put out warmer water or just happens to be by the beach. Yea I always laugh when i see them from the road.

I'm not sure if it does put out warmer water or not.  It would be interesting to know if it does.  It's kinda funny how it's there in the middle of a state park.

a few years ago I drove down to socal (carlsbad) to pick up a board and spent a couple of nights in the back of my pickup shell

...it gets cold as hell at night even down there, and, on top of all the humidity that built up back there, it was pretty miserable.  Good thing I was really tired, but that style of camping isn't very good

What we are doing is recycling but they good stuff like when they make a board or something like that, ha ha. High Five back Thumbs Up .

Oh yea burning boogie-boarders is what you do when you surf. But I don't like to run them over the blood and stuff just isn't worth it. And when they sit right where you need to drop, it makes me think about running them over.

And now I might have to work Saturday too. I hate money. I need to get my van and live down by the beach!

it's ironic: we solo surfers want to surf with somebody, but then we paddle out at a decent spot and there usually ends up being too many people or some other BS

(I have a dislike for boogie-boarders and frequently burn them...sorry, but they have overwhelming advantages like wearing flippers and just laying there, etc.  I don't care if it sounds elitist, but they should either take leftovers like waves we stand-up surfers can't make or don't want...or, better yet, go get pounded on a close-out somewhere else)

You know surfing has to be good when we put up with the stuff we do.

Vail gets some seriously epic powder but if you want to ride it you need to either live there or be extremely lucky.  it all gets tracked out in two or three days unless you know people who know where to take you.  i lived out there last season as a lifty and the powder was ridiculous somedays but the main area's were moguls in a couple days.
my powder board is a jib board
