Get your shredstick ready because snowboarding season starts this Saturday.

Frost Fire Ski Area located in Walhallah, North Dakota (15 mins away from the Winkler/Walhalla US boarder) has announced that they will be open for the season on Saturday November 22nd 2008. According to their website, the park will have 3 runs open and the double chair lift will be running.

I’m pretty stocked about the news. I was expecting to go snowboarding around the middle of December. This is the earliest that I’ve ever heard of a park opening this early in a season.
