12/17/2014 7:23:45 PM Copper usually has two for one passes at participating shell gas stations. But their are restrictions on dates
12/11/2014 9:32:34 AM Just throw your extra lens in a coat pocket if you want it with you. Don't get a backpack just for that. Backpacks are for parents (pretty much get away with anything if you've got kids) hiking the park all day or backcountry. Yes I am being the fashion police....
12/9/2014 8:34:47 AM i actually like the deuter packs, but wouldn't get them because the ones i prefer don't have horizontal snowboard carry (freeride series) and do have external pockets that can catch snow. Doesn't work for what i do, but would work for many others as well all have preferences.  The descentor does have horizontal carry but it's on the outside of the pack instead of next to your back, so again - wouldn't get it. Have no issue with the looks.  I would get a black diamond jetforce pack if they were more geared towards touring or even sledding, but they are more of a sidecountry pack. all i am saying, is most of the packs you have listed meet your criteria.  So just pick the one that you like the looks of best.   Things I look for:safety gear pocketsmolded back panel and reinforcement light internal framehip belt pocketsenough internal storage poles, skins, food, water, first aid kit, extra layers, etc.horizontal and vertical board / ski split carrygoggle pocket For what it's worth, if you do have back issues, might consider eventually ditching the snow shoes for a split board.  Snow shoes are brutal.
12/8/2014 2:18:54 PM truthfully i don't see much issue with the AK pack, friend of mine uses it and it does the job fine.  I prefer my jones pack to it, but it's just personal preference.   .  I wouldn't say the other 5 packs are much better or worse.  From the sound of it, you are more interested in how it looks as all of the bags you have mentioned have very similar capabilities.   At the end of the day, does it hold everything?  
12/8/2014 1:40:20 PM you can try the Anon magnetic lenses.  takes about 2 seconds to change and you can do it with gloves on.   then there are the photochromic lenses, smith has one that I like. and most lenses are flexible.  don't know of any goggles where the lenses aren't flexible, at least for snowboarding.
12/8/2014 1:28:03 PM but... you got to ride!
12/8/2014 8:37:19 AM there are a few more variables you may have left out. The Reverb comes in rocker and camber.  The 153/155 are camber, the 154 is rocker.  Or you can get the 153MW and 155MW in rocker.  Not sure of your foot size, so not sure a MW is even necessary. With that, if you are riding the crush, i believe it's zero camber between bindings and slight rocker tip and tail.  The Reverb camber is going to feel a lot different to you. The rossi was also a directional camber with rocker tip and tail, and a fairly stiff board that is set back.  Not sure if you adjusted the board to a centered stance or not, but it makes things a little more difficult for park if it's not centered.   So the lengths are definitely not going to be apples to apples comparisons.   For what it's worth, I'd go with a 154 or more likely a 157 Reverb Rocker.  The 157 would be good anywhere in the resort, depending on where you ride, so would the 154.  You really can't go wrong.  For reference I ride anything from a 148 to a 158.  I weigh 145lbs.  My daily rider for everything in resort is a 155 true twin.  I have a 153 powder board and a 158 splitboard.  They all have different uses and most people don't care as one board can suit their needs perfectly.   FYI Reverb Rocker is a damn fun board.  I had the 154 for a couple years
12/8/2014 8:20:58 AM appstate, yeah you'll fall and if someone you know sees you, you make catch some crap from them.  But one thing that is fun, is when people have trouble keeping up with you when you're riding switch.  hard work in the beginning has it's rewards in the end.  we all get intimidated by something at some point.  
12/8/2014 7:49:54 AM editing takes time, so being easy to learn and not taking much time is likely why your previous movies were a bit boring to watch.   things to keep in mind - peoples attention span is short.  keep your movies under 3 minutes, likely under 2 minutes unless you've got some good edits.  What you think is cool, likely only you think is cool, so don't expect 5000 hits.  I like the videos I make, most other people do not.   Check out programs like Adobe Premiere Elements, GoPro's Cineform, iMovie, etc. For slow motion, it all depends on what you are using for your video.  If it's an ActionCam or GoPro or similar, are you using high frame rates so you can slow the video down?  i.e. 60fps or higher.  Do you record you video in the same resolutions, or will it require scaling?   How much work you put in, determines the quality of what you'll get out.   Check out some of Abe Kislevitz's videos on youtube.  He does some impressive edits and you can go through and watch how they got better over time. if you pay someone, rates vary from 50-1000 per hour.
12/5/2014 5:34:53 PM And there is Bryman. One of the very few on here i would trust a recommendation from
12/5/2014 5:19:29 PM You actually still list burton as a choice... No offense to TruSnow but if you want true backcountry pack recommendations there are few on here to offer that advice. Id head over to splitboarding.com    You probably have a real good idea of what you want. There are plenty of options that are all equally as good as the next. Jones makes some excellent packs specific to snowboarding. But doubt what you want it's human nature. I tend to just use my pack for the survival essentials. Many people here use packs inside the resort. Or even for school. Sidecountry and backcountry have different requirements of course. First aid kits, food, emergency blanket, radio, shovel, probe, saw, axe, etc etc. here you may just get a slightly skewed perspective based on the demographic.
12/5/2014 12:52:36 PM yep.  so long as you continue practicing. try switch ollies.  That'll be humbling...timing always messes with my head.
12/5/2014 7:50:51 AM seems this question is a common one for you...http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=43142&PN=1&PID=1121344#1121344 http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=54819&PN=1&PID=1275636#1275636 Suppose we can consolidate answers here... I use Jones packs.  Mine is the higher 30L, which is outside your specs, but they have smaller.  RAS compatible packs are a good option if you intend on upgrading for avy protection.  They do not (or at least didn't) have the helmet carry like some of the dakine's and others, which is a drawback, but I clip mine to the outside and that works. http://www.jonessnowboards.com/Backpacks.htmlThe R.A.S. Module will set you back $450 though from Mammut. BCA makes the most reasonably priced float packs that I have foundhttp://www.backcountryaccess.com/products/avalanche-safety/float-airbags/you'll need to buy the snowboard carry attachment if you go this route.

12/3/2014 1:22:34 PM just force yourself to do a couple runs top to bottom switch.  after a few days it'll be a little more natural.  If you are reverting to goofy, just take that option out and force yourself to stay regular.  If you are spinning 5's this should be a pretty simple thing to force yourself in to.
