Hi- My husband and I are going to be in the Garmisch area in the first week of October this year. I was hoping to be able to get in a day of snowboarding but was wondering if it's too early in the season for garanteed snow? Also- which resorts would be the best for intermmediate boarders such as ourselves? (we'd have to rent equipment as we aren't planning on toting our boards all the way from California to Germany. Thanks!
