Great powder day for Blue! Even the glades were fun today. Once they groom it out, tomorrow should give us hero snow. I'm pumped to get out early tomorrow

Agreed! I just got home, today was amazing conditions. Brought a friend up with me and it was super easy to teach her with the soft pow.

I'm actually moving to Whistler for the winter so I'm pumped. lol

Where did you buy your board? I'm looking into getting at least new bindings and possibly a new board. The ski and snowboard show is this weekend so I was probably gonna head there and see what there was. From my past experiences the vendors there don't have very good equipment for sale, just beginner stuff and the stuff at the swap is normally garbage. lol

Id love to move to Whistler, I usually make it there at least once a season!
I prodeal all my stuff, so it makes it pretty cheap to get new gear. I kinda like the ski/board show. Its usually last years gear, but who cares really, you are right though, you will not find super high end stuff there.
What kind of set up are you looking for?

I'm an all around kind of boarder so I try to stick to all-mountain boards. My current board is about 5 years old and hasn't gotten a heck of alot of use over that time so I'm not in a big hurry to get a new one. My bindings on the other hand are garbage and literally falling apart so I should probably get a new pair. I was actually looking at Cartel's myself but haven't actually started an active search. I've also never really been a brand queen like some people, so as long as the board looks good and feels good I'll use it. Same goes for boots and bindings, although I despise any bindings other than conventional strap ones. lol

Im definitely not a brand queen, I just get Burton product so cheap that it makes no sense to purchase anything else. Besides, ive gotten used to their equipment and know the in's and out's of it.
Im praying we get a ton of snow this season regardless!

Ya parking lots are half the fun of going boarding :p

I'll be heading to the show Thursday in hopes of finding a Never Summer Proto CT or a Libtech TRS fingers crossed







If you're thinking about Cartels you should do it -- I love mine and they're common so relatively easy to find on sale

I love the cartels, i have 2 boards with them on it, definitely a great all around binding. If youre looking for a stiff binding, the cartel definitely wont do tho, its nice and flexy.

I can have a check, I think I may be able to get Neversummer at cost, I know in past years they offered a discount.

Realllllllyy .... Well let me know I'd be willing to kick back a bit for sure...

I honestly like the last seasons graphics a bit better on the Proto (then pix I put up) so I was hoping to find one of those discounted but I don't know if NS boards last through to the next season like some of the other brands do
