With most ski areas opening over the past few days, the 2009-2010 snowboard season is officially underway for much of the U.S! I made my first turns of the season this past Saturday, and I'm already looking forward to getting back on snow in a few days. The weather has turned cold across much of the land (I even have some snow in my front yard in Southern New England!), and a major storm system is working its way from west to east as I speak, with forecasters predicting an impressive shot of winter over the next few weeks.
The early days of each snowboard season are good for several things: getting your legs back underneath you, working out the kinks, and trying out new gear. Demo days abound in December, so be sure to check out your local resort's website to find out which manufacturer's will be around!
