Last weekend I drove down to Mt. Baker which is just inside the US border for a snowboarding weekend with some friends. Mt Baker holds the world record for snowfall (something ridiculous like 1200" in one year). I had never ridden in real powder before... it was awesome. After one bail I had to actually take my snowboard off so I could crawl out of all the snow.
Most of the time it was either foggy or snowing like crazy, but on the rare occasions where the sun was out, we were treated with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.
