Looking ahead: 07-08 Winter
04 Sep, 2007
Each year around August I start to plan out my upcoming winter. Where I’ll be, what mountains I’ll try my best to ride, any big snowboard trips, booking snowboard trips and following through with snowboard goals.
Here’s my 07-08 Winter schedule:
-Ride Loveland and A Basin for early season.
-Ride other summit county resorts as they open.
-Ride Steamboat for opening day Nov 21st (Scholarship Day) and spend Thanksgiving in Steamboat
-Endure a painful tourist season in Steamboat (it just gets crowded so I stay off the mountain during Christmas week)
-Possibly teach snowboarding on the mountain during the peak periods
-Spend Christmas in Steamboat, spend lots of money on gifts for my dog.
-Recover from New Years Eve
-SIA 2007 in Vegas: January 29th to February 1st, 2008
-Dealer Demos to try out the 08-09 gear on snow
-Possible trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming
-Fly into Calgary, stay in Banff and ride Alberta Mountains for a week. March 8th-15th, 2008
-Fly to Seattle, ride Stevens Pass, Baker, Alpental.

Goals for this season:
