10/23/2014 7:47:31 AM The Sierra RC is a 2010 board based on some of Burtons 2011 construction processes. Really it's a great board for the price. It doesn't have infinite ride so it takes a while to break in but still a great board. I mean 149$ for a snowboard is a pretty great deal no matter how you spin it. The thrive accomplice is a late release but still considered a 2012/2013 on the one that is $149. It's a fairly soft board. The $250 accomplice is more the 2013/2014 board and is a little different construction that gives a stiffer feel. I like the 2012 accomplice because it's somewhat soft between the bindings but has some pop tip and tail. Some of the newer variations have stiffened up a bit between the bindings. I tend to ride a little stiffer board these days than I use to which is still a fairly soft board. For a straight rocker board the accomplice is my first choice. But I do favor towards the 2015 model   
10/22/2014 8:02:46 PM based on those specs  I'd probably go with the Thrive Accomplice @ $250. http://www.thrivesnowboards.com/p/thrive-accomplice-snowboard-1 if a 156 works, this is the best price for a board I know of...@$149 www.thrivesnowboards.com/p/thrive-accomplice-snowboard
10/22/2014 10:13:25 AM Revelstoke is awesome, but losing in a first round to any resort just destroys the validity of the poll.  Aspen and Jackson should be in the poll till close to the end as well.  I'm not saying they are the absolute best, but I would ask someone to tell me a better resort than Jackson in the US, an aspen isn't far behind.   Only resort I know that's open is Abasin - bunch of people riding the limited open stuff, but I think I'll wait another couple weeks.  Hopefully a lot changes!
10/17/2014 11:39:32 AM i would also like to know how this happened.  They charge more than that for sidewalk space.  Pretty Awesome!
10/17/2014 11:37:57 AM I am selling my gopro's and switching to an actioncam mini.  I like the idea of simple.  It would be great if there was just a touch button or smart watch trigger that would let you know if it was operating.  One of my concerns with connecting over wifi would be battery drain.  pretty much all of the cameras are doing outstanding to last for two hours without it broadcasting.   The less I have to worry about when riding the better, so simple is key.
10/17/2014 11:18:03 AM ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Does anyone know if George is still around?  I know Allie is doing a ton of work these days, just curious if our help is still useful.  Emailed George a while back and no response.  Anyone know how things are going on their end?
10/16/2014 10:41:47 AM you calling me fat?
10/15/2014 3:36:20 PM i have to object to any list that puts Aspen and Jackson as 2/7 as they are probably top 4 resorts in the states.  Then mount washington beats revelstoke??  more like a popularity contest.
10/15/2014 10:49:26 AM that's dedication!  I like it!!
10/15/2014 10:48:23 AM cool.  IP blocked and deleted.
10/15/2014 8:17:36 AM Jackson is definitely one of the better places to go when the snow is good.  They've added a new chairlift that gained access to more intermediate terrain making it more friendly to those who aren't quite used to it.  They have another lift opening next season.  It would be hard for me to choose between Jackson and Revelstoke though.  
10/11/2014 4:31:53 PM It was a great year. Most every year we make trips to jackson and aspen to visit family. BC was ridiculously awesome. Would like to make it an annual trip as well. Nothing quite like it. It'll be hard to beat last year. Hit Jackson during a record snow month. It was just awesome. Looking forward to the upcoming season for sure.
10/10/2014 4:16:01 PM The sleds are mostly Idaho Wyoming and Colorado. Ski and snowboard varied from Colorado Wyoming and British Columbia It was a great year. Hope another one is in front of us.
10/10/2014 3:10:45 PM Oops. Thanks. Fixed.
10/10/2014 1:28:15 PM ouch 12 gallons?  I went through 3 on my deck and that was plenty.
