Washington sits at an amazing 45%, meaning that almost every second snowplayer is a boarder. There is a widely held misconception that only young people snowboard but one look around Mt. Washington Resort will quickly dispel this theory. Snowboarding has become attractive to all ages and the reason for such an explosion of board lovers seems to lie in the amount of snow Mt.
