Words: Nikita 

If its one thing we can count on during the months of September through November, its that we never know when (or if) the snow will come. When we started seeing some flurries start to fall this month, we couldn't resist—we had to get out there and see if we could find some snow. It doesn't always go your way, but after a little skateboarding and a bit of a road trip, we were able to find a stash of snow in the mountains that made for some perfect early season DIY snowboarding.
