9/26/2012 2:58:17 PM Thanks for the quick replies. I thought this might be the case.
9/26/2012 1:28:12 PM I won the reverse crew on 9-11 and just got my coupon code today. So two weeks and a day to get it. Does anyone know if I can trade my coupon code for store credit or something like that? I've been thinking about getting a hybrid camber magnetraction board because I ride on the Ice Coast.
8/8/2012 7:42:07 PM The site says 3:30 pst, but i think hes going to do a longer video chat. video started at 3:30ish, he did the giveaway at 4:00 ( 7 eastern time ) http://www.thrivesnowboards.com/rp/66756
11/13/2011 7:46:14 AM I can't agree more about taking extra time with selecting boots and making sure the fit is proper. I would highly recommend going to a shop or a place where there are people that can help you determine the right size you need. If you have wide feet I would recommend 32 brand boots. I have a Sims Absolute 160 that is great for carving. Regular camber and really stiff. Good luck with your setup!
2/21/2011 3:23:40 PM Got back from the Jay Peak trip with BSSC last night. Bus was right on time. The pick up point was a train station parking lot so parking was not an issue. the BSSC trip was a younger crowd than the new england snow bus. The Bssc bus had more leg room but the new england snowbus was nicer (quieter engine noise, bigger TV screens, better seats). One movie on the way home, but then they left us hanging for another hour. It seems everyone on this bus was with a group or in pairs, but the bssc staff coordinates a group meeting in the lodge for people looking to ski/ride with others. I cannot comment on how that went though because I didn't participate. I'm pretty sold on these bus trips, and I don't think I would pick one company over the other. It really depends on the destination for the day I wish to ride, as they don't always go to the same place on the same day.
2/17/2011 2:58:55 PM I would agree with chenmt in that it seemed to be a few groups of friends that would chat with each other, and then the rest seemed to be solo people. Everyone mostly kept to themselves. The lady sitting behind me offered some informatioin when I asked about the basket room (she must have been familiar with Okemo). One group in the back was kinda loud and a lady was complaining about her neighbors but the group leader reminded everyone to keep the chat volume down because people will be sleeping. The ride home was pretty quiet. I think everyone was either sleeping or watching the movies. The Jay Peak trip this sunday might be different because i think the bus is going to be full to capacity. the okemo bus was probably only half full, maybe a little more.
2/15/2011 3:21:26 PM I little update here. I went on a New england snow bus trip sunday to Okemo from Boston. It worked out pretty good and Im already thinking about planning another trip. We were kind of worried about being able to find a parking spot in the boston area (Com Ave) pick up spot so we took the T for a couple bucks. The bus was a few minues late but it wasn't a big deal. there was a couple groups of people and some couples and a bunch solo. they played the latest warren miller movie when we were close to the mountain. when we arrived they give you your lift ticket at the bus and u just grab your stuff and go, which is awesome. They lock the bus during the entire day so we put our lunches inside the lodge and suited up there. some people probably just went straight from the bus to the lift tho. two movies on the bus ride home ( social network, despicable me) and it made good time too. they passed around a hat to tip the driver, I just put in a buck. The "group leader" was pretty good but he didn't know specifics about the resort ( i asked about the basket room pricing). I definately like the bus trip. you get a good deal. you can sleep. and you carpool too. probably gunna go to Jay Peak through BSSC sunday so i can comment on that if its any differnt.
2/11/2011 8:17:04 AM I would rock em. All my gear is black and my jacket is brown, but my goggles are blue frame/strap. I could probably do any color goggles with this setup. if you could do all purple and lime green like the constructicons that would be cool!
2/10/2011 10:32:02 PM Always been an Evo fan. you can even race skiers at mammoth mountain! http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xg1rxu_top-gear-usa-mitsubishi-evo-x_auto
2/10/2011 10:14:12 PM well it looks like the west hartford newenglandsnowbus didn't get enough people to go on the trip. I might still take the bus from boston tho. CT ski council looks very interesting as well as NACski. I like on the nacski website it shows you if the bus is a go or if they are still waiting for more people to sign up. I had to call newenglandsnowbus two times this week to figure out if the bus was gunna go or not.
2/10/2011 10:36:17 AM thats an amazing story you have and is very inspirational. I hope someday I can go on an adventure like that!
2/10/2011 9:52:12 AM I wish I could play in all that powder. Although this has been one of the best winters in terms of snowfall for the East coast. The only thing on the local news here is about roofs collapsing.
2/9/2011 9:15:46 PM thats pretty awesome. very innovative product. I would also be concerned about durability.
2/9/2011 1:58:19 PM don't hit trees! lol. I hit a tree last time I was riding. Thats a great video.
2/9/2011 1:34:29 PM it might seem obvious but remember to keep your knees bent. at least when i was learning switch I think i would straighten downhill leg trying to catch my balance but it would just make me fall. I really forced myself to keep my knees bent and my balance seemed to be better. as others have said it also helps to really accentuate your upper body movement and point your downhill hand in the direction you want to go. that helped me alot as well. it might looked a little funny at first but after you get comfortable you can relax your stance.
