To start the stoke for next season, and the long-wait....

Where would you go for an epic pow-day? By epic pow-day: I mean white-room bottomless pow, where you need a snorkel to breathe pow-day. I have never really experience the White-Room, in all my years of riding.

Perhaps this coming season, will be the Whiteroom year, as I purchased two 09/10 Venture Euphorias - R (solid) demos from Venture.

My pow-bucket list includes the following:
[*] Canukistan, in powder central (Revelstoke)
[*] Jap-Pow
[*] Wolf-Creek
[*] Wasatch Range
[*]Grand Targhee

What's in your Pow-bucket, where would you go?

If you have been there; add a POV vid and/ or comments to this thread

To this thread started; here's a classic Burton video,

Anywhere but here, all we get is peanut butter powder. :nononno:

I've had good days in Whistler and all my friends head to the north end of British Columbia but I've never gone that far north for fun.

I would sub that with Silverton pow. Wolf Creek on a snowboard in a deep day can turn into a bitch. You just have to point it to make anything, and wait for skiers tracks. Go somewhere with consistent fall line :twocents:

For me (resorts):
Crested Butte
Telluride
Taos

Backcountry, stable pow please.

QFT. If we're talking Wolfie resort, anything over a foot of pow is brutal in the flats. And the flats are extensive. The b.c. around Lobo Overlook is a different story.

Wastach, end of story. Stable (mostly) pow.
Ja-pow would be nice once in a lifetime.

Rogers Pass does get snow of the powder variety. Don't stop.

Though had a couple banger days up in Kootenay Pass this winter as well. Time it right & you may just have the whole place to yourself for the day.
