Social Group: Bend Oregon snowboarders
Description: A mass of snowboarders in Bend Oregon often enjoy going to the ski resorts together to snowboard. After spending so much time together and falling in love with their sport, they start to catch on to key phrases that are around them everyday. A couple of words were picked up from snowboarding magazines or just from the ski slopes themselves. After hearing them the Bend Oregon snowboarders put their own twists and vertions of the words into their vocabularies. Now they have established their own cluster of slang words for the sport they all love.
