    Tahoe has shit for snow this year. 30 inches and it's already January. I hope to get up there soon, though.

    Drinking on the lift/blazing in the trees.

    I say give it a go.

    For the cost to rent everything you need for a weekend, you're better off just buying gear and selling it if you decide snowboarding isn't for you. It may be different other places, but here rentals are really over priced.

    aye man, my mates are saying that they can get me deals on rentals, and that they'll probably hae gear i could use...

    we get pretty long seasons here. last year there was still snow til the end o' june on some slopes...

    the runs are short though, that's the only complaint i hear from boys...

    Wow that would be nice. We barely had a season at all here. There was barely any snow this year. They're saying possible drought because of it.

    My advice would be- don't bother with the bunny slope. Just go to the top and learn on your way down. And don't let the first trip or two scare you away. You're going to be falling a lot and really sore.
