4/14/2011 11:32:41 AM Selling a slightly used, 6 days, B2 Snow helmet in Black, size Large. Helmet is in like new condition other than a few minor scuffs from storage. Helmet never realized any impact from fall. Selling because I’m actually going to buy the exact same helmet with the audio option and it’s cheaper if I just sell this one rather than purchase the audio option separately. Looking at $35 local pick up or add $7 to $10 for shipping to lower 48. Will ship as cheap as I can and charge actual shipping costs...just not sure how much that will be. Firm on price. No trades. PM if interested. Link to product, I’ll try and add some pictures later or you can PM for pics. http://pro-tec.net/b2-snow-helmet.php •     It’s the matte black one, not the Danny Kass model with the grim reaper on the back.
5/5/2010 1:54:20 PM Okay I'm not getting a response from the staff so my question was "is this a good board for a beginner" and if so what size for my wife who is 5 foot 7 inches and weighs around 130. She is in between the 142 and 147. when she rented she rode a 144 but I have no idea how that worked for her. She has only been two times with about a days worth of riding between the two. Thanks.
5/5/2010 11:51:06 AM Is the Sierra V spot a good board for beginners? My wife has only been a couple times and is starting to get into the sport. She's basically new so just assume her skill level is zero at this point. This seems like to good of a deal to pass up but I don't want to get her anything that is going to be difficult for her to learn on and may potentially push her away from snowboarding. I figured with the reverse camber and soft flex this may actually be a good board to learn on. Please let me know your thoughts. Also, she falls between the 142 and 147 weight range and she is 5 foot 7 inches tall. What would you suggest? She rode a 144 when she rented. Thanks.
4/27/2010 12:04:56 PM Noticed you guys have pro tec helmets but there isn't much info and the drop down just has "assorted". Any chance I can get the sizes/colors available? Thanks. http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/Protec-Helmet-Snowboard-Helmets.asp
4/22/2010 3:16:49 PM So with the snowfall I was thinking about heading up to Snow Summit tomorrow for my official last day of boarding. I have four "get lifted" tickets; however, they all have different names on them. How strict are they on checking ID versus the name on the voucher, etc. I have one for me, so I'm set, but that's it. The other 3 have names of people that definitely aren't going to be able to go and I was hoping to use one of those for a friend of mine. Anyway, if anyone has used one up there and could let me know what they think I would appreciate it.   
4/19/2010 5:44:33 PM Long story short I "lost" my brand new Burton Gore Under gloves this past weekend. I'm likely done for the season so while I need new gloves I don't need them any time soon. I saw a couple decent alternatives on here at 50%. Question to those of you that have been on here for years, what's the liklihood they have another sale better than 50% any time in the forseeable future? Not being greedy, I've taken advantage of the great sales on here and am perfectly happy with half off; however, the one's I'm looking at appear to have plenty in stock for my size so not really in a hurry and wouldn't mind saving a couple extra bucks. Thanks.
4/15/2010 4:30:23 PM I need a helmet. Want to protect my head but don't want to pay $80 to do it. Anyone have a medium/large helmet they're looking to get rid of? Looking for black or brown, but open to whatever. Sierra didn't have my size during the sale so no luck there. Thanks in advance.
4/10/2010 11:22:45 AM Can you confirm that the 2010 Smith Holt Youth Models that are left, all are size small, are 54 to 56cm? I took a look at the sizing chart and there wasn't anything specific to Youth, just to Adult, Holt, & Junior. Since this is a Holt I used that chart and it says Smalls are 54 to 56cm. This is for my son so want to make sure this will fit, he's in the 55cm range. Thanks.
4/6/2010 11:31:32 AM Looking at a few of the boots for my son and wanted your opinion/advice. He's been 4 times so he's a beginner. Just got him a forum youngblood mini 128 with Ride Micro bindings. He wears a size 2 or 3, the shoes I looked at were 2s, but I normally rent him size 4 boots...probably just isn't used to how boots fit and prefers them a little looser. It was suggested I buy them bigger anyway, so I was planning on getting him size 4s. These will primarily be used for next season so want to make sure they'll fit next year; however, a 2 to a 5 seemed like a bit much. Looking at the Vans Encore (Boa), Burton Shaun White Smalls (Lace), and Burton Ruler Smalls (Speed Zone). Leaning towards rulers, primarily because of the Speed lacing system, but a little concerned about Burtons because I've heard they tend to run small/narrow. Not sure about my kid but I have wide feet which is why I was looking at the Vans. The Burto Rulers just seem better/nicer than the Vans.    Thanks in advance.
3/29/2010 1:48:54 PM Just got a price adjustment for my crew, thank you Sierra, so decided to buy my son a board at these rediculous prices. Anyway, my son is a true beginner and has only been out 4 times; however, he can make it down the greens, some easy blues, pretty easily now and can turn, to a certain extent, on both heel and toe side, can stop, etc. It's not pretty but he's getting there. We've been renting a 121 burton chopper for him each of the times he's gone up. Looking at the Nitro Youngblood Mini in a 128. Is this a good option given his skill level...don't know much about this board. He's 8 in weighs in the mid 70s. This will be primarily for next year so he'll likely gain a couple pounds and grow an inch or two in that time span. Size range for the 128 was 50 to 100 so that was a little vague for me. Thanks. was going to get the chopper but it's only left in a 120 and didn't want to go down, rather than up, in size.    
3/26/2010 10:17:58 AM Just started teaching my 8 year son old how to ride. He's been up 4 times and is picking it up really well...so I'm stoked. Been renting and figured I would actually be saving myself money if I just bought him a board for next year. Knowing how these kids grow I thought someone on here may have something at the end of the season available that thier son may outgrow by next year. Let me know what you've got. He's currently riding something in the 121 range, weighs in the mid 70s, when we go up so looking for something around 125 for next year...preferably something made for learning, don't need a scaled down pro model. He wears a size 3 or 4 boot. I live in San Diego, so local would be great, because of the shipping, but looking at anything at this point. Thanks in advance.    
3/19/2010 2:55:18 PM Anyone have an idea of what board this might be? It's just a promo board for mountain dew but figured it's just a standard model made by some company with mountain dew graphics on it. A guy is selling it unused for practically nothing so figured I would throw it out there and see if I found a good deal. I don't need the board but for the price it could be a real steal or might just be a big POS. Figured it was worth the time it took me to post to find out. Thanks.
3/1/2010 10:16:59 AM Pretty much made up my mind on the Sierra Crew but not sure what size. Unfortunately I'm short (5 foot 7 inches) and heavy (185 lbs +/-) so your typical charts don't apply. I would prefer to go with the shorter board, 156, but probably need the 158. 2cms don't seem like much so I'm not sure what difference it will make...any suggestions. Was also looking at Nitro Tean and Ride Antic. Antics are all gone so that leaves the Nitro Team but the Crew seems to be what I need and have heard nothing but good things. Definitely want a traditional camber board, not sure what the Nitro is. I live in San Diego and typically ride local, which includes bear/summit, etc. I like to primarily ride groomed runs and do turns/carve around a bit but will hit the park for small to medium sized jumps, not so much rails; however, I also do an annual trips to Whistler and may throw in Mammoth as well so the board needs to be able to handle that type of terrain, i.e. steeper, powder, off trail, etc.    I've recently been renting or borrowing and riding pretty small boards, in the 154 range so I know they'll work but can't help but think I'm hindering myself by using those boards. I am a pretty middle of the rode intermediate rider. Much better at turning/carving but also like to hit the park with my nephews and in CA since that's about all you have here anyway. I just recently started snowboarding again but had about 8 years experience prior to marriage/kids if that helps. Also looking at bindings. Right now considering the 390s, missions, customs, EX. Any suggestions on those given the board, experience, etc? Anyway, thanks in advance.
