12/27/2010 3:17:17 PM So I spent the weekend (Dec 18th, 19th) at Breck, and on my last run on Sunday (which was a great run down Peak 9), my buddy and I were weaving through the trees and totally bombing the run.  When we get to the bottom, my buddy looked at me and asked where's the camera (pointing to my helmet where my GoPro usually sits)? Apparently it had fallen off at some point during the run .  We decided to take the lift up one more time and retrace our run, but no luck - someone had picked it up or it was buried in the trees.  Bummed at losing the camera and the footage from the day, we headed back to the hotel to grab the car and hit to road.  While waiting for the car, I told the valet guys about it and they said that someone was going to get an early Christmas present, which made me lose even more faith in people's honestly.  Since we had a few minutes while waiting for the car to be pulled up, we called the lost and found and were told that someone had actually turned in an HD Hero :)  I ran up to Beaver Run and sure enough, it was my camera with my SD card in it. My faith in the goodness of people has been restored!   I know there have been a few postings about boards getting stolen recently, but I just wanted to offer a different view point.  There are still good people out there
12/17/2010 4:02:04 PM Hey all, I'm planning on spending the next two days at Breck and wanted to come up with a good way of attacking the hill to get some good shred time while progressing to more difficult terrain gradually. This is my first time at Breckenridge and I only have one season of boarding under my belt, so I was thinking of starting off on a couple of Greens just to get my bearings and then make my way into the blues and beyond. I read the following guide and found it helpful: http://www.skisnowboard.com/breckenridge/layout.html But I wanted to check with you guys who have been there to see what lifts I should take first to make my way to the right peaks.  The first day we'll be driving in from Denver so we can essentially park anywhere (maybe take the gondola?).  Sat night we're staying at the Village at Breck so we'll be near peak 9. Any advice on what lifts to start off would be great! Thanks
12/8/2010 4:42:04 PM Hey all, I'm going to be heading to Breck from Denver on Saturday, Dec 18th early in the morning.  If anyone needs a ride, lemme know - right now its only going to be my buddy who's flying-in, and myself. Cheers, Shayan
12/2/2010 2:37:56 PM Hi all. Do you have any recommendations for good shops around Chicago (preferably western suburbs)? I just need to get my board waxed, until I learn to do it myself. Thanks!
12/1/2010 2:23:00 PM Hi all, I'm from Chicago and just started boarding last year (learned on the hills in the midwest).  I made it to Mt. Tremblant and Winter Park last season and had a blast.  This year, I just happened to be staffed on a project in Denver for the winter so I ended up buying a Colorado Pass.  Since I live in Chicago and commute to Denver every week, I figured I'd stay back in CO on the weekends and hit the slopes... Given that bit of background, I was wondering if you had advice on a couple of things: 1. I was thinking of exploring all the different resorts included in the CO Pass - would you recommend doing that in any particular order or just go by what the snow conditions? I saw killclimbz's brief overview of the different resorts in a different thread and found it really helpful... 2.  I'm thinking of doing my bit of boarding this season on Dec 18-19 and was debating between Breck and Keystone.  I know there are strong opinions favoring both resorts, but given the time of the season and the fact that this will be my first resort other than Winter Park (which i loved), any recommendations between the two? 3. Are there any other resources you guys would recommend I check out for learning more about the resorts from the locals' perspective? Thanks! Shayan
