To say '14/'15 season has been poor here in CA is an understatement. I'm already looking out to 2015/2016. I'm a snowboarder, and after 4 years of declining weather here in CA and a rather hectic work schedule I am very frustrated at my lack of progression. Simpy I'm not getting the time on snow. After talking to a few top level riders and coaches there is a common opinion on 1- Taking solid time i.e. a solid season out to chase the snow and 2 - Hit the Pacific Northwest and follow inwards chasing the weather as it comes through.
So with that in mind. - I'm in the position to take the season in 2016, The next question is where to go to get top level snow conditions and Big Mountain riding. I want to stay within the USA as I'll travel with my Dog and border crossings with pets just create obstacles.
Ideally I'm thinking Dec/Jan/Feb then return home to CA [to fingers crossed some snow]. Along the way I'd like to hit some price friendly resorts with great terrain. I've heard of the Golden Circle Route?? Any thoughts.
