    I live on the eastcoast and I want to know if there are any cool spots to go to snowboard? Does anyone snowboard that lives in the DC area? Where are some good spots to go on the Westcoast? My buddy lives in Montana and says they have great slopes there too. Any suggestions? I will be going to Colorado in 2011 but what other places can I go that I will not have to get a passport to ?

    Utah all the way. Best snow in the United States, hands down. I moved my life here for a reason and I get about 100 days in a season. Not to brag but we already have a 105" base and way more to come. The olympics were here for a reason. icon_cool.gif

    I'm a huge fan of the bird, but don't have the funds for a pass there. My home mountains are Powder Mtn and Brighton, I'm up there about everyday.

    I'm guessing you are familiar with here? I think this gent can testify on Utah's greatness. icon_wink.gif

    Too bad, the bird is awesome, my brother used to live Riverton and we'd head up there.

    Utah mountains are great, tons of snow and its not freezing cold. Have you been to Grand Targhee?

    I know you said you dont want to leave your country, but the best mountains are in Canada hands down. I got a chance to go to a lot of American mountains when i lived in Houston, i find them generally smaller and more crowded, Whistler (early season only, after January it turns to shit), Lake Louise, Sunshine, Fortress, Banff Mt Norquay and Kicking Horse are my favorites.
    If you want to see some amazing mountains Canada is the best international option, for the fact it would be less expensive then a European mountain trip and the snow is generally better.

    I have not been to Targhee but I have heard greatness, and I'll support the Canada thing, bad ass snow if you don't mind staying in an igloo while you are there (joke). I would say Utah and Canadian slopes are held very close together in my book.

    I snowboard, but it is too damn cold to do anything outdoors this week. It really sucks. But I love going to Rib Mountain up north and get a motel room with a hot tub.
