Snowboarding Trip in 4 Hours

I'm very disappointed today..

6:00 a.m.
I woke up so early to get ready for my first snowboarding trip of the season.

7:40 a.m.
Left the house.

8:30 a.m.
Eating Chinese style breakfast around Rowland Heights.

11:00 a.m.
2/3 of the way to Snow Summit in Big Bear Lake.
Stopped by the store talking to a few local residents.
Because the road was closed due to poor weather condition and mud slide.

11:15 a.m.
Driving down from the mountain.
It's very frustrating when I was surrounded by snow but couldn't snowboard at all..
Here's the visibility driving back-

11:20 a.m.
My face reflection on the passenger window-

The ski resort is still open despite the closing road,
From where I was, there's no turning back,
Unless I wanna drive blindly to the base then make a circle coming back up again,
Which is at least 3 more hours in a weather like that you can't see a thing.

There's only one solution,
Sacrifice my only chance to sleep in on Sunday morning,
And try to conquer the road once again.


  1. Oh, I'd love to learn how to snowboard. BUt I've only seen snow once.

  2. To Manggy~
    Hey, give it a try if you ever get a chance,
    Plan a trip to Japan or Korea if possible,
    It's fun! (but super cold...errrr)

  3. Wow that's scary yucky weather!
    I sometimes snowboard in Aspen CO. when i go there for work!
    It's sooo fun!

  4. To Zen Chef~
    Hey I just got back from my one day snowboarding trip,
    Never been to Aspen though, it must be really fun there!
    (So nice that you can work and snowboard at the same time)
