Do you board or ski?
Ski. Hopefully we'll have a better winter this year. Last year was disappointing to say the least. I'd really like to find some trails to wheel other than Richland. The one off deck hill is closed and firetower is blocked off.

Yeah last year was terrible. I work at Sugar so I've been going pretty much all the time, the snow was great tonight. How come you don't like Richland? There is also Brown Mtn close by, you have to pay though.

really? I keep seeing grass on the webcams haha. Maybe I'll have to make a trip there soon. And there is this one bank at richland that is right after a shallow creek crossing that has a big rock in the middle of it. Scared to go up it because it looks like it'll destroy my cats and everything else under my car. And my jeep is my DD haha. Just need to get the balls to do it one day.

Yeah only the mile is open right now so the webcams don't show the snow, it is there though haha. I'm sure you could make it on Richland, I've seen several stock WJs and a Forerunner and an Izuzu Trooper make it.
