I wish we got enough snow to get into it. I used to live near a place that made their own and we seemed to get far more back then, but I just skiied, I think I did 80 days one year. Loved jumping and tricks, snowboarding would definitely fit my style.

theres probably 4 resorts within 45minutes from my house,,That being said,,resorts are ok,,i prefer back country waaaaay more!..The resorts around here get jam packed and the runs seem to get icey.....Theres a park by more house that has some sick hills,,the sleders/toobers dont really use it cause of some trees..But hey, mound up some snow into jumps and its killer!!

Hell yeh! I already went to Burj Khalifa (also known as Dubai Tower) during my last visit. We were planning on going skiing but she wanted to ice-skate in the mall near that tower. While trying to be a hot shot I did two twirls, slipped and broke my arm :rotfl:

I used to snowboard occasionally. Never great at it, but good enough. Basic tricks only. Last time I went was probably 7 or 8 years ago...dislocated my shoulder.

I used to skateboard. That I was pretty good at. Of course it's been like 4 or 5 years since I stood on a skateboard.

Janesville has backcountry?



You are talking Wisconsin correct?


Not trying to come across as smug, just curious as to what there is to be found out there. Coming from a guy who started riding the Mississippi valley resorts in Minnesota, now a pro patroller for Vail.
