3/11/2012 10:28:02 AM Hey guys, This is kind of random but I decided to start my own clothing company a little while ago and have been putting together a few different designs. I finally came up with one for the upcoming holiday. What does everyone think? Link to the shirt
1/2/2011 6:03:44 AM XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I noticed there are no good ways to monitor brand reviews. They don't show up in the review section of a members profile, so I wold have to track down their review through all the brands on the site. Can we make it easier to find spam brand reviews, or maybe eliminate them all together?
11/25/2010 4:22:55 AM XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Since I still log in via my phone sometimes I noticed that the TruSnow mobile page still has SierraSnowboard.com in the page header as well as the old SierraSnowboard logo. Just a reminder in case you guys forgot to change that over.
11/22/2010 6:30:34 PM Alright, I'm throwing this out there for anyone in the community that feels like hitting Killington the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Want to avoid the craziness of holiday shoppers gone mad? Come join K8gotgame, Phatman, myself and whoever the hell else wants to come along to go ride. Conditions will be what they are but hell, it's November, what do you expect. Good times, shred and good people. For those that don't know, there's a link in the Killington VT thread to a 2 for 1 voucher that you can print off after you sign up for their newsletter. Don't want the newsletter? Make a fake email and sign up for it with that one, I don't care. Cheap tickets and shred are open for all Nov. 27th at "The Beast", Killington Resort in VT. /end
11/8/2010 4:29:03 PM Ok, this is my for sale thread on here. I have a few things I am looking to get rid of and all of it is in good shape, if not like new condition. Prices are negotiable, but I'd appreciate honest offers.  All prices are without shipping FREE SHIPPING!!!. Here we go. 2008 Ride RX bindings, size Medium, well used. No physical defects with the bindings, but they have been ridden for two seasons at around 30 days per. Paint is chipping, but ratchets and high back are still in great shape physically. MSRP$180, Price $60 Good Karma. http://www.trusnow.com/Ride-RX-Snowboard-Bindings.asp 2008 DC MLF 154, also well used. The top sheet is in pretty good shape and has no major chips or gouges. The base though has seen its fair share of boxes and rails. No core shots or deep stuff, but a stone grind at the local shop wouldn't hurt, but the base would be 90% after a good coat of wax. This model won a Good Wood award too. MSRP $450, Price $150. http://www.trusnow.com/DC-MLF-Snowboard.asp Those two are probably the things I own that are in the worst shape. Mostly because I didn't own them, but now I do, so they need to go. On we go: 2010 Nitro Team Gullwing 159, ridden once. This board is awesome. The Gullwing camber is great, it responds very well and you can carve or play around at will. That being said, I rode this particular board once. I mounted a set of Cartels had a great day and then the next day I rode my Sierrascope, and continued to ride that through spring. This just won't get ridden nearly as much as it should in my quiver. MSRP $450, Price $230. 2008 Flow Team 159 Antti Autti, ridden twice. In 2005 Antti Autti beat Shaun White in the halfpipe competition at the Winter X Games, and is one of only two snowboarders to ever do that. History lesson over, this is a great board, with carbon fiber support in the core making for a stiff responsive ride. I would slot this in between a Burton Custom and Custom X in terms of stiffness, and equal to the Custom in performance. I rode this board twice, and the first time out I broke my wrist riding, due to misjudging my speed and overshooting a landing in the park. The last time I rode it was after I was out of my cast at Loon in their halfpipe and main park. That's what it is made for right there. Fast and stable on groomers, solid in the pipe, and poppy off jumps in the park. Has a scratch on the tail shown in the third picture. MSRP $499, Price $150. http://www.trusnow.com/Flow-The-Team-Snowboards.asp   2009 Burton Customs(Large) SOLD and Mission Bindings(Large) SOLD, both sets ridden 10 days each. I was riding these crap 10 year old Salomons, then I got the Customs, and then I got the Missions. I only rode each set 10 days this past season and they are both in basically like new condition. The only issue is shown in the picture and thats where the highback meets the base tray, there is a rub mark. Otherwise these things are cherry. The custom is a good all around binding that can do pretty much everything for not a lot of money (Shaun White rode them for years in the pipe) and the Missions are a great jib oriented binding, but still good for cruising around. MSRP(Customs) $149, Price $75 SOLD, MSRP(Missions) $179, Price $90 SOLD. Also I have a Santa Cruz 158W, ridden probably 50 days, but doesn't look it, and a brand new Lamar Tripper 154 that has never been ridden. The Santa Cruz is a cap construction with a directional shape and setback stance good for people with 10.5+ boots. The Lamar Tripper is.......well, it's a Lamar Tripper. I bought it for my nephew, but I got a smokin' deal on something else for him, so this is up for grabs too. SANTA CRUZ SOLD. Price for Lamar is $100. Thanks for your time guys and if you have any questions just shoot me a PM or something. Prefer Paypal for payment and I am willing to ship international, but I'd have to look into what needs to happen with that.
9/15/2010 10:47:44 AM We know its coming.  We can't wait, nervously sitting by the door, checking the tracking number, looking out the window, staring at the clock on the wall.  Then it happens.  Someone knocks on the door, or hits the doorbell, maybe buzzes your apartment.  It's here!!!! The Fed-Ex guy/gal hands you a little pad to sign and hands you a box with an all too familiar logo on it.  Your new gear just showed up and you're stoked. Some of us already have it, some may be waiting for the first flakes to fall before they order it, but we all have one thing in common.  Deep down we're gear whores and want the latest and greatest from our favorite brands.  Personally, this is my first shipment of new 2011 gear for the season (since I already got my 2012 boots in July) so I thought I'd make a thread for people to post up what they just picked up.  Enjoy.
9/15/2010 9:19:49 AM ROME is going to be having their 2nd annual warehouse sale Sept. 24th and 25th.  If you can go, do it.  Awesome guys to talk to, you can see all the 2011 gear first hand, and there may be some pretty good deals kicking around.
5/15/2010 4:24:55 AM Transworld Snowboarding went through the trouble of putting together this list of the top rated shred schools on the East Coast.  It may not be very scientific, but hits on the strengths of each school (proximity to resorts, party scene, academics) and sums up the vibe of each of them.  This brings up a question.  Given your passion for snowboarding, where would you go to college so you could snowboard as much as possible? http://snowboarding.transworld.net/1000124229/featuresobf/higher-education-east-coast-edition/
4/28/2010 4:13:48 AM I'm looking outside my window right now and it's snowing in southern NH.  From what I'm heard it's been snowing in northern VT since yesterday afternoon.  All I can think about is whether Mt. Washington is getting good enough coverage to make it worth my time on Saturday.  The last time I went there, which was last week, it wasn't worth it.  Keeping my eyes on the snow report, in hopes of one last hurrah.  
4/4/2010 4:34:49 AM Review Title: 2011 Rome Boss 390 L/XL Review Year: 2011 Overall Rating: 5 stars Riding Category: All Mountain Binding Flex: Med Pros: Very comfortable straps, excellent hold from toe strap, responsive yet still gives great board feel Cons: Dampening pad under binding adds extra effort mounting bindings Detailed Review: These were the bindings I used all weekend at Bettypalooza.  I had never ridden the standard Rome 390's, however, lots of people riding that weekend had experience with them and all were positive.  K8sgotgame had some really god things to say about them which convinced my to try them out.  During the demo session there was a little trouble mounting the bindings to the board, but after Rome_Mike gave me a few tips it was a breeze, with the binding mounting up securely.  The first board I used them on was the 2011 Rome Anthem, which is a stiff hybrid camber all mountain stick, geared toward charging the mountain and carving.  Despite the fact that the 390 is considered a more freestyle oriented binding, it was amazing on the icy conditions Stowe gave us.  The response was very good, and the board feel was great.  The reduced contact patch of the baseplate allowed me to feel a lot more of the board and how it was flexing, which allowed me to ride a lot harder with more confidence.  The 3.5 degree canted footbeds were also very comfy, and something my next set of bindings will have, at least as an option. Day 2 saw me taking out the 158 MOD Wide, which was a much softer, more park oriented board with a beveled edge.  This didn't work out so hot, but that was mostly because of the park edge on the board and the super hard pack and ice the mountain was giving us.  However, the bindings were still very good, very responsive, and easily adjusted to the Rome Libertines I was using instead of my 08 Burton Hails. In conclusion, these bindings will be the first thing I buy next season, and I would've already bought them if they were in stock.  Great job Rome.
3/30/2010 4:39:56 AM I know my friend and I are heading to Tucks over memorial day weekend.  Anyone planning other trips?
3/29/2010 4:23:42 AM As I'm sure everyone knows, Bettypalooza was this weekend.  Other than just meeting a lot of people from the forums and having a great time on the slopes, we also had the pleasure of private demos from Rome.  First off I want to thank Rome_Mike, as well as the rest of the Rome crew we rode with and chatted up at the Matterhorn.  Rome is really a first class organization and they showed it this weekend.  Secondly, I'd like to turn this post into a place for everyone to post their reviews of what they rode.  Since most of the what we were riding was 2011 gear, which isn't on the site, this will be a good place to start.  Format should be similar to the standard review for the site. Review Title: Review Year: 2011 Overall Rating: (1 to 5 stars) Riding Category: (All Mountain, Freestyle, Free Ride, Park) Skill Level/Binding Flex: (Beginner/Soft, Intermediate/Med, Advanced/Stiff) Pros: Cons: Detailed Review: Just an idea, but I think it'll be helpful if we included what our setups were with the things we reviewed (say what bindings and boots you used when writing a board review) and conditions.  We all know it was solid and icy to begin Saturday and all day Sunday, but Saturday afternoon it softened up quite a bit, and toward the end of the day Sunday the snow was getting pretty slushy and sticky.  So I hope everybody that was there this weekend fills a few of these out.
3/25/2010 12:44:14 PM I brought my DSLR to the US Open last weekend and shot a few pictures.  I'm going to start editing them, and I figured some people around here might appreciate them.  By no means am I a pro, but some of them came out ok. Camera Specs: Nikon D80 Nikon 70-200mm, f/2.8 Shooting in Program mode w/ custom settings Crop and level adjustment in CS3 To be continued
3/10/2010 11:51:44 AM Burton Demo Tour Stop: Killington, VT March 12th-14th Bud Light St. Patrick's Day: Mt. Snow, VT March 17th 2010 Burton US Open: Stratton, VT March 15th-21st Bettypalooza: Stowe, VT March 27th-28th Anyone got something else?
3/10/2010 6:39:01 AM Check out the new MEMBERS POINTS page for info as well. **Posted by Little ole me for some extra clarity** Ok, hopefully this will clear this up, as we seem to have a few threads a month lately on this topic and it seems that it's never quite understood. Here is the breakdown for levels: POINTS      LEVEL                BENEFIT 200           Ski Bum                additional 10% off anything & Free Sierra Snowboard brand Tshirt 1,500        Local                    additional 15% off anything &  Free Goggle (up to $100 value) 3,000        Instructor             additional 18% off anything & Free Binding (up to $200 value) 10,000      Board Member      additional  20% anything & Free Snowboard (up to $400 value) These are the ways to earn points: - Daily Log in (one per day) - Legitimate* Reviews (3 points per review, capped at 3 reviews per day) - Legitimate** Posts (1 point per post capped at 5 posts per day) - Purchase Points (1 point per $10 spent with no cap) *By 'legitimate' we mean that it needs to be worth of your five point gain.  We are looking for reviews that will help future customers get an understanding of personal experiences with this product.  Please make sure that you list details that are essential for those looking to buy. In terms of post points, please put in an effort to become an integral part of the community.  One word posts and posts with pretty much zero relevance to the topic at hand are not generally worthy. If your review is 'flagged' by five members, or one staff or expert member, it is deleted and your points are deducted from your point total.  If you have ten reviews flagged and deleted, you will no longer receive points for reviews from that point forward. **For legit posts, we're looking for posts that actually add to the conversation or content at hand in the thread you're posting in.  If you're only posting in a game thread (ie. This or That) your posts will be flagged as well.  Please do your part in becoming a useful part of the community and you won't run the risk of having a problem with this.  Once you've had 30 of your posts flagged, you will no longer be able to post in the forums, so please post with content in mind. On another topic of points, here's some info on the Points for Purchase topic: - Points for purchases has been working again since the 18th of March. - Nighthawk will be adding them to the recent points list on your profile as it has been previously not shown. - Points for purchases prior to the 18th that were not awarded will be retroactively added soon (we do not know an exact date on this yet). The points were implemented and worked for quite some time, but stopped working when we relaunched the site on October 12, 2009.    Previous to that, the points worked from when we first implemented that aspect of points until that date, so there won't be any other points added prior to then. So, just to be clear.  Anyone who made purchases between October 12, 2009 and March 18, 2010 will have the points added to their account that the purchases were made on when the programmers get the chance to work on it.
