Year Round Riding

Oregon is unique, in that, along with Washington and a few other states, the opportunity exists to snowboard year-round, although you’ll need to earn your turns.  Heavy maritime snowfalls and somewhat mild summers allow Oregon’s glaciers and snowfields to remain skiable into the fall, although that it’s becoming much more challenging to find good snow in the era of climate change. That said, quite a few people around the Pacific Northwest have found the joy of skiing and riding year round, and have started continuous skiing and snowboarding streaks by making turns somewhere at least once each month.  Below are links to trip reports documenting the adventures I’ve enjoyed while making turns throughout the year.
