I'm planning to get some of my first rides in next month, one weekend or Saturday probably at Zugspitze. The drive is about a hour from my house. I'm really looking forward to a few places in Austria and Switzerland I want to checkout. Has anyone ever been to Adebolden Switzerland? I'm really looking forward to riding there in the next few months.

I'm riding a K2 Raygun, with K2 Cinch CTX bindings and Ride Anthem Boa boots. Boots and bindings I picked up at the beginnig of the season last year, I can't stress how much I love the cinch bindings, I don't think I ever sit down through the day with the step-in setup. Same for the Boa's, super easy to adjust at anytime throughout the day. K2 Raygun I bought on a good deal at the end of last season, rode it once or twice and was very happy with the choice.
Must be nice living there. I'd love to be able to stay in Germany for longer than the two week vacations we usually take there. It's a huge help that my gfs family has a place for us to stay there, saves a lot of money. Take some pics of the Zugspitze and post them up when you get back.

I like the Boa system. My salomans have that kind of system. Definitely more convenient than the usual lacing up.

Your board is looking nice, i like the graphics.

Just bought my 5x7 at Blue a few weeks ago. Ill be there a lot this season.

I'm actually heading up to Calabogie Peaks to try out the new hills there over the holiday season. Vertical is the same as Blue. There arent many runs yet but looks decent, not to mention dirt cheap.

This is only gonna be my second season too. Just got some new boots from 32. The rest of my stuff are 'hand me downs' from friends and family...

I've gotten to the point where I'm checking the weather forecast every now and then to see if it's going to snow. I'm guessing we'll start seeing some snow by mid-December but who knows................

I rode in Austria yesterday for the first time. Conditions were good, 3000m elevation I believe, 15 minute gondola ride. Best part is it cost less than a day pass at Blue lol.

This was the glacier we went to:
