Why won’t it just f#%king snow already?

I hate this time of year. It’s the end of November in Ontario, and I’ve been stuck seeing updates about how epic the mountains out west are for a solid two weeks already. It’s enough to drive you insane.

Really though, I love this time of year because it’s what makes being a snowboarder in Ontario special. We’re not handed great snow and an early start to the season. We’re at home every day checking Facebook for updates from the local hill, waiting to hear the snow guns fire up, watching (and re-watching) old snowboard videos, driving hours to ride sketchy pre-season rail jams and strapping in behind the local arena to session a piece of corrugated pipe. And when the snow final comes and the lifts start running, we turn it on for three and a half months without missing a single chance to ride because we never know how hard the January thaw will hit.
