1/9/2009 11:21:05 AM Hey guys, I noticed this a few days ago when I couldn't see the Sierra logo at the top left of the site, now while browsing through the store I realized none of the product images were coming up either. The only images that come up are the forum member avatars since they are hosted on different servers and the GoDaddy secure site logo on the bottom right.
1/7/2009 10:04:44 PM Anyone else on this new snowboarder 'social' network? Just entered in Sierra's information on there: http://www.shredunion.com/shop/15/, if you guys sign up, make sure to leave a review!
12/29/2008 3:11:22 PM My brother recently told me to check out Blockles on http://www.iminlikewithyou.com/ (it's a multiplayer Tetris clone). Thought it was cool. Any of you on that and / or InstantAction.com?
12/22/2008 8:49:30 AM It's sort of like an IT version of the Office. Never really got into the Office, but I've been looking forward to IT Crowd's season 3 for a while. Anyway since Facebook and Twitter seems to be gaining traction with the SS community, thought I'd bring it up. Here's the intro to the most recent episode: [FLASH width=425 height=344]http://www.youtube.com/v/3NvMuh-tPmE&hl=en&fs=1[/FLASH] And a torrent for the full episode.
12/11/2008 5:43:19 AM http://www.adrants.com/2008/12/dc-snowboard-ads-now-infused-with.php I guess if you go to DCShoes.com a lot, you would've seen it already... I haven't visited manufacturers' websites this season since I'm broke and don't want to be tempted.
11/22/2008 4:07:23 PM Hey guys, heading up to Hunter tomorrow with a few buddies for a day trip. One of our other friends went up for the weekend and said it was fine today. Anyone else considering a trip there?
11/22/2008 8:49:37 AM Hey guys, just wanted to voice something here that's been in the back of my mind for a while. But before I go on, I just wanted to make it clear that Sierra is the first place I send all my friends and acquaintances to when asked about snowboarding or ski gear. Recently I've seen a lot of Backcountry branded items going up on their various Woot-like deal outlets. And as the days go by, it seems like the online space for this particular industry will be increasingly dominated by mega stores like the Backcountry-conglomerate and our beloved Sierra. Sierra has also made it's own push with the Sierra branded snowboards (awesome), and of course with all the heavy investment in redesigning the site and all the talk about iPhone apps and especially their presence in social network spaces like Facebook and Myspace (are you guys on Twitter?). With all that said, has there been any talk of revamping the Sierra branding? I know it's been tweaked since I joined the community but it still looks a bit dated and not as polished as I would like it to be. I'm not saying we need to adopt an animal avatar or the like, but a die-cut-like S isn't really doing it for me. Does anyone else feel the same way or am I just an @$$?
11/21/2008 6:44:35 PM Hey guys, I'm looking to pick up an RED Hi-Fi to replace my 2006 model. I tried on the new ones in stores and it looks as though there are actually a number of changes between the 2006 model and the 2009 model which is listed as Hi-Fi II instead of just plain old Hi-Fi. Are the 2008 models considered Hi-Fi or Hi-Fi II? I'm asking because I'm a L in the old Hi-Fi's but an XL in the new Hi-Fi II's. Thanks!
11/20/2008 2:12:56 PM http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/snowsports/2008411301_nwwsnowboard20.html Didn't realize there were meanings behind the names. Read on...

10/29/2008 5:26:54 PM I think I did this last year as well, but here we go again. I'll keep this thread updated about any design-related snowboard contest out there (outside of Sierra's own design contests pinned in the forum). If anyone knows of any others please post!

10/24/2008 9:57:10 PM http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/130/aeron-meet-burton.html How the Aeron Chair Inspired Burton By: Mark Borden How an iconic chair inspired a breakthrough snowboard binding. Enlargecourtesy of Herman Miller Enlargecourtesy of Burton Snowboards Office furniture doesn't usually inspire outdoor activity. But designers at Burton Snowboards saw more in the Aeron chair than a cockpit for sedentary pursuits. They found kinetics in ergonomics and high performance in space-age materials. By applying parallel design elements to the company's 2009 CO2 board bindings ($390), Burton took imitation and flattery to a new altitude. (A) SPINE Constructed out of injection-molded thermal plastic, the stiff core of the CO2 mirrors the Aeron's Y-shape back design. By attaching at four points, the spine provides additional strength and gives the binding a tight rack-and-pinion feel. (B) MESH The Aeron's signature webbing helps the CO2 reduce weight and creates a form fit to the boot. It also serves as a contact point, which helps transfer energy from the rider to the board. More energy, more speed, and more comfort make boarders want to stay on the mountain longer. (C) FRAME Before the CO2, high-back bindings were built symmetrically and didn't compensate for the snowboarders' angled leg stance. The result: an occasional, painful "calf bite" after heavy landings. Following the Aeron's attention to ergonomics, Burton tweaked the frame 7 degrees, which increased closeness to the leg and, mercifully, muzzles the bite. (D) DIAL Extreme adjustability separated the Aeron from its competition. Burton took note and added a dial to let riders determine their own angle of forward lean, which force knees to bend. The bent-knee position increases stored inertia and adds speed when going into turns. Test riders rave about the heightened responsiveness. From Issue 130 | November 2008
10/22/2008 9:24:04 AM Not big on soda, but since MtnDew seems to be tied to so many action sports figured I'd post here. Pepsi is rebranding almost all the brands in their stable and MtnDew is one of them. Really really dig the new logo. The new Gatorade logo? Not so much... http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/pepsi_revealed_sort_of.php Pepsi, Revealed. Sort of. This is why I love our readers: David, aka "Logo Fiend" has dug around United States Patent and Trademark Office's Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) and found the registered work for the new Pepsi, Mtn Dew and Gatorade work. Now, this doesn't mean it will all be used or that this will be its ultimate form, but if it's been registered or trademarked it sure won't be too different. I alluded to a scoop in the previous post, but this is not it, this is a bonus! So, thanks David, and enjoy everyone.
10/22/2008 8:07:53 AM The blogger apparently had a run in with a snowboarder... anyway I think this would be a good piece of technology to apply to goggles. http://gizmodo.com/5066954/hindsight-cyclist-glasses-are-eyes-in-the-back-of-your-head-kinda Hindsight Cyclist Glasses Are Eyes in The Back of Your Head, Kinda The Nike Hindsight cyclist's glasses from designer Billy May (we loved his Torn lights before) are designed to do one simple thing: stop cyclists from getting hurt on the roads. At the extended side of each lens is a carefully arranged high-power Fresnel lens that captures the view to the sides of the wearer's head, and sends it into the peripheral vision. galleryPost('hindsight', 3, ''); That's the bit of your eyesight that doesn't capture too much detail but does excellently at detecting motion...so the extra data hopefully wouldn't be too distracting. Essentially its a clever way of avoiding being side-swiped by a fast moving vehicle that was sitting outside your normal vision zones. Simple and blindingly obvious, hen you think about it... and could have potential uses in all sorts of places. I know it'd help with my skiing... or at least would've helped my avoid that dumb snowboarder who knocked me flat last year when he wasn't watching where he was going. Hopefully it's a concept that'll be a reality soon.
10/20/2008 9:36:57 PM Hope Sierra doesn't mind me post this, figured they'd be cool since they allow all the SAC/WM/CL/TD deals to be discussed. Deal is 20% off plus up to 12.5% on top of it via Live.com cashback. If you go to any of those sites, you'll see a 20% off coupon, for example, I just got the following off of Chainlove.com 3BE-1-SQACF on Backcountry.com Now go to www.live.com and search for "Backcountry snowboard" You will see a link near the top of the results that mentions something similar to the following: backcountry snowboard - Search.Live.com/cashbackLive Search cashbackGet discounts up to 13% at Live Search cashback.Now once you log into Live.com, and then go to BackCountry or one of its affiliates Live.com will reimburse you the following amounts: Backcountry.com (12.50%) BackcountryOutlet.com (12.00%) Dogfunk.com (12.00%) Just make sure you purchase during the same session and in 60 days (or 90, I forget the exact details) you'll be credited back the appropriate amount. I believe there's a $200 limit if it's similar to the eBay 30% Live.com deal. Read up here for all terms and conditions.
