Want cold & snowy?greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread
I was just wondering if people in HI ever get the urge to go away somewhere cold & snowy? Are there shops with snow-skiing equipment there?

The tour companies have a lot of tours for locals to go skiing or snowboarding, but more go on their own to visit friends and family. Going to the mainland to go snowboarding is a big thing over here. Guess it's a carry over from surfing. For someplace that has very little snow and almost no real snowboarding places, we have four snowboard shops!!! With the high cost of rent, you know they have to be selling quite a few snowboards. To give that an even more unreal perspective, being surrounded by the Pacific, there are only 8 snorkeling shops/tours. Granted there's tons for scuba, but...snowboards????
