But Tama we're having so much fun in the office today! And it's warmer inside too.

Why would you want to go out in the cold like that, strange boy... :D

I'll be there on Thursday too. :)
I am definitely hoping this current weather pattern brings snow, and clears off before then.

Hot chocolate time! Here's my dilemma; I really like the idea of snowboarding - it looks like a hell of a lot of fun. However taking it up would involve paying for the privilege of falling on my arse for a few days - and even then being an unco numpty for a while afterwards.

That said, being up here with snow, blue sky, sun, views to die for and people having an awesome time is a hell of a lot of motivation to commit to a cold sore arse :)

Dude, it's the snow industry, NOT the bike industry. It's not run by a bunch of tight-arses.

You run what's gonna quite possibly be a massive snow site.

Hit them up for a free friggin' pass!

That was short but sweet.

I love snowboarding even more than I love mountain biking. I can't recommend it enough. Very similar skills and fun IMO.

The way I compare it -

Snowboarding good conditions = 10
Snowboarding bad conditions = -10

Mountainbiking good conditions = usually 8/9
Mountain biking bad conditions = 6.

Barring rides where I've picked up injuries, I don't think I've ever had a really bad day out on the bike, even in the pissing cold and rain. On the other hand, snowboarding on ice with zero visibility is just horrible. I'm much more choosy these days though. I'm longing for powder days at the club fields this year. Be good to us gods of snow! I've got some floating holiday days booked and I'll be happy if I get 10 really good days this year.
