||Any time my man. Always willing to help a boarding brother out. Looks like you guys have made a transaction. Excellent.

||Is this the right board?: http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=46612

||In December, at Northstar, I saw a ton of them while waiting to buy a lift ticket. In March, at Park City, I saw a dude with a Stunt and he gave it glowing reviews, for all mountain use!

||Physician Assistant working for the DOD in Hawaii. Pays well enough that I can go to the mainland and snowboard 1-2 times/season.

||I have seen similar signs at other resorts in the past, but haven't seen any this season (i went to 3 Tahoe resorts and 2 Utah resorts). Maybe they are doing away with the requirement. I usually have a leash on my board, but instead of attaching it, I think I will just bring it with me and attach it at the resort if required. I was told there were instances in the past when runaway boards actually caused injuries and that was why leashes were a requirement at some resorts. It is a minor inconvenience and one I can live with.

||I just got back from a conference at Snowbird. Utah is the shiznit! From what I experienced, Snowbird is indeed pricey, if you decide to stay there. It is higher and colder than Park City and seemed to get a lot more snow. The terrain seems a lot more challenging to me. If you stay in SLC or Sandy, it is close to Snowbird, but still just 45-60 minutes from Park City; you can check out several resorts and decide which one(s) you like best next time you ride in Utah.

||From personal experience, the Oakley pants seem to run a bit small and the Foursquare pants a bit large and long. It is always a good idea to try them on in person and see if you can get a deal online (unless your local store has a sale) once you find a brand that fits with a style you like.

||Did you check Oakleyvault.com? They still have one pair of Crowbars, in Asian fit, for sale...$52! Pretty good price.

||Congratulations on your new bundle of joy VR!!!

||Another possibility, maybe, is if he knows someone in Hawaii, it could get shipped there and he could pick it up. Either do a quick trip there, or on his return to Japan if he goes back to the US for a vacation, he could grab it. Just a thought.

||Hey Ginger, What are the specs on the Black and Yellow Forces? Meaning, what year are the various parts? How much wear on them? Did you use them at all or are they brand new and unused? More info please. By the way, they are sweet!

||I can't remember who it is, but I saw someone selling a pair of the Magenta Madness bindings in these classifieds just yesterday. Look through all the recent "for sale" listings. Good luck.

||We were just at Tahoe in late December and visited Granlibakken to go sledding. Guess what? My friend broke his leg going down that same hill. We heard from the ER docs that more people come in with sledding injuries than snowboarding or skiing. I think a normally fun harmless activity is fun and harmless when done on smaller hills...you don't generate the same velocity and/or force to get hurt as bad. Just my 2 cents worth.

||I'm probably just paranoid, but I take my bindings off. I worry that with the way they throw the luggage around during loading and off-loading, the bindings, if attached, could break or somehow damage the board (where they screw into the board). I also wrap the board(s) with T-shirts to keep them from getting scuffed up by the boots and bindings. I have boots and outwear throughout the bag to pad the board and bindings. Just a word of advice, do not put anything in the outer pocket(s) unless you can lock it...some jackass in Reno went into my outside pocket (a baggage handler most likely) and stole my multi-tool, a pair of binding discs, and snowboard lock. The main compartment was locked with a TSA approved lock, but the outside pocket couldn't lock. I am still trying to get reimbursed by the airlines.

||Dude, check out Oakleyvault.com. The Fort Cord snowboard pants are on sale for $42. They are good, basic pants, but not great or top-of-the-line. The only problem with their pants is that the waist is kind of small compared to other companies. I can usually wear a large, but need an XL Oakley pant and that is kind of tight. On the other hand, a Foursquare XL is so massive it could fit Sasquatch. So if you want cheap, but good quality, consider that website.
