Let's Ride

If you're one of those people who, all winter long, talk of nothing but the crappy weather there might be something you can do to turn that frown upside down: snowboarding. All summer long while everyone talks about how beautiful it is I'm secretly wishing snow would fall, and keep falling.

Finally the wait is almost up. This weekend's Ski, Snowboard and Travel Show marks the unofficial start to the season. From today through Sunday at Exhibition Place you can find all the snowgear you'd ever need and plan any winter getaways too. Gear is usually last year's stock and priced to fly.

All that's left to consider is where to board when the flakes start falling. Mount St. Louis Moonstone offers great beginner "discovery" packages which include a lesson, rentals and lift all for under $50, but if you're serious about the white stuff Blue Mountain's selling a 5x7 - all nights and weekdays lift pass - for $160 until October 23rd.
