Was it me... but the first time I went snowboarding was two years ago this past November. Me and several younger but more expert boarders went to Wisp during the last week of Thanksgiving where they had several trails open. I remember this clearly because coming home off of Corridor H we passed the Capon Valley Bank in Baker and it was 8*F that night which was the coldest that early in recent memory.
Cross your fingers that we get a nasty cold snap. My mom said she remembers the year my sister was born, 1982, that it snowed in October. Start doing that snowdance... or at least bribing Timberline to let us volunteer work on the snowguns till it snows.
