10/5/2010 10:53:53 AM The best I had was when Mt Washington Vancouver Island go so much snow, they had to dig out around the chairs and people where skiing at eye level with the lifts. We had around 5 meters that year (15 ft) at the peak :)
9/9/2010 12:05:52 PM Oh I did and my items are enroute. Thanks again guys!
8/30/2010 12:42:59 AM My local shop is a sports chek. Would you take advice from a guy who rides a couple times a year tops and uses "bro" as a verb, noun and an adjective all in the same conversation? Where they set up your gear based on color pallettes instead of skill level? My local ski hill is a 3 hour drive away, and my one of choice is a 2 hours ferry and 2 hours of driving away. While supporting those shops at the ski hills does sound all fine and dandy, when its Whistler, and the prices are 25% above MSRP for most items, its not smart to shop at those S-Mart's. Okay, this thread should have been ended 5 posts ago as it is WAY off topic. I got my answer, any customer service questions in the future dont post, wait for a staff member to be online and message them directly.
8/30/2010 12:14:13 AM I appologise for my rude comment, but what I meant to say was something along the lines I dont care about physical appearance I care about performance and price. If I can get the same performance somewhere else, for a cheaper price, price wins. Id rather not, as I am a newer member on this site, and wouldnt mind trying to start my buisness with a site that caters to snowboarders more exclusively over other sites or people that are just trying to make a buck. On another note though, if the expert members on a site do use sarcasm in a forum labeled customer service, it does seem in bad taste from a customers point of view. This of course isnt the best selling point for the buisness that the expert member is representing.
8/29/2010 11:29:51 PM I c. Well its a shame cause I was thinking about a second burton vapor, but now i will get a new one without defects for cheaper somewhere else :(
8/29/2010 1:21:32 PM There is still ads on the website advertising 2010 winte ritems 50% off BUT after the site update friday, they are now all 30% off. SO, are they 30% now and the update didnt remove the ads or is it all 50% like the ads still say?
8/27/2010 12:08:02 AM Oh yeah, I forgot to add that the reason I found salomon and DC better what that I have a VERY narrow ankle and a wider toe box and with the other boots I tired I had lots of heal lift which is bad on a day at the hill :)
8/27/2010 12:06:31 AM Dont be dead set on a brand. I found that with my footshape that the burton and forum and really sloppy with my foot shape, but DC and Salomon fit WAY better. Dont just go to one shop, check out alot and see the different brands out there. SOmething like footwear you have to be very specific cause it will affect your day on the hill :)

8/18/2010 2:05:03 PM Ha ha! Thats wicked I hate jerk offs like that as well! Thanks for the heads up! Yeah if you ever come up to BC its the same way. The Blues feel like greens and the blacks aint so steep. Whistler/blackcomb and revelstoke mountain seem to have the only true "black" diamonds that i have boarded up here so far.
8/18/2010 12:09:12 PM Yeah but in 2 days could you land them like they did ;) Sick vids! Man that snow looked fast and icey though!
8/15/2010 10:26:12 PM OneBallJay Bacon wax! That or just good old graphite based waxes. I find the graphite will make your base look like ass, but it is quite speedy for the price.
8/12/2010 2:15:26 AM Yeah at the end of the last season from all my bails the back of my giro helmet was noticebly compacted down! I wouldnt ride again without a helmet.
8/12/2010 2:11:33 AM Its not just a matter of camber verses rocker now days, there is many different styles of rocker boards. Check out the sierra video on the different syles of rockers, you may see one that would work for you! But from your initial description Id guess you would do some time in the park, mostly all over mountain. SO just based on that, id say just get a camber board unless you find a fun inbetween rocker board to suit your style. People had camber in the park long before the rocker came out so it will still work just fine ;)
