SEATTLE -- What's the best Christmas gift for a snowboarding Seattleite? Snow and empty roads.
Elliot Newman woke up at 5:30 a.m. on Christmas morning and waxed his beater board.
By 6 a.m., he was hitting the streets of West Seattle.
Newman said about 2 to 3 inches of snow was on the ground and he spent about four hours riding around some hills and parks.
