9/7/2012 3:41:38 PM [tube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8LcdGsjbMc[/tube] because the season is soon upon us, and this was one of my best falls last year. post yours!
10/27/2011 11:51:43 PM I've been wearing a helmet since my 2nd year of snowboarding, and I've taken some hits that would have knocked me silly without it.   How come almost no one ever wears one in any snowboarding movie?  Deep powder, hucking cliffs, doing rails, almost never a helmet.  
10/8/2011 4:33:45 PM http://www.chromeexperiments.com/detail/z-type It's like number crunchers for anyone old enough to remember.   My High Score is 11032 at 96.7%.  Did that on my second try.
9/28/2011 7:02:56 PM I'm looking to pick up a pair or two of walkie talkies to keep with me on the hill.  I figure they'll come in handy when we get separated on runs, and especially with friends who are of different skills doing different runs all day trying to meet up for lunch or something. Do any of you have experience with them?  Any recommendations or brand to stay away from?
7/5/2011 11:02:00 AM So my college buddies and I are all spread out across the US, and we are planning a trip to Utah for '12 as a sort of mini-reunion. I've never ridden there, and Tahoe is my home base, so I'm looking for a little advice. - which resorts should we hit? we're a mix of snowboarders and skiers, so no Alta, it seems. It looks like Snowbird is a must-see, but what are the others? We are planning to be there for 4 days or riding. Our skill levels probably range from competent advanced through pretty expert. I don't think any of us are doing big cliff drops or super tight chutes, but I can manage 99% of Squaw & Kirkwood comfortably, and the other guys are either just above or just below my skill level. 2 guys from the east coast, 1 from Chicago, me from Tahoe, 1 from Seattle (I think he rides Crystal), and 1 from LA (Mammoth is his stomping ground). - any great places to stay? It looks like most resorts are within an hour of SLC proper, but would it be better to stay closer? cheaper? - what month typically has the best snow? I know this is completely up to the weather, but should we just shoot for Feb?
6/1/2011 9:45:07 AM Evidently, I play a lot of expensive sports. Snowboarding: $350 for season pass, $500 for ski lease, probably another $300 for lift tickets, ~$600-$800 for gas a season, hopefully split with some people at least some of the time. Usually a board a year for another $300, but I usually also sell one so it doesn't cost that much effectively. Hoping to do Utah this season, so add another $500-700 for the whole trip. Hockey: $900 a year for ice (2 seasons), $600-700 for roller (4-5 seasons). Skates every 2-3 years or so for ~$300-400 for ice & roller each. Probably 2 sticks a year at $120 each. Maybe misc gear for another $100 a year (gloves, helmet, jerseys, socks). Auto-racing: auto-x is usually about $60 for a day. Track days are ~$200. Car upgrades/mods/wear parts probably add up to $1k a year or so, skewed higher in the first year of owning a car. Mountain biking: after buying the bike, mostly free other than patch kits. season pass to downhill in Tahoe is only an extra $60 or $70 on top of my ski season pass. Golf: (haven't play regularly in a while, but looking to get back into it this summer) ~$40 greens fees. I have some pretty cheapo clubs I bought back in '05.

3/20/2011 11:38:29 AM [tube]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=21263322[/tube] Was up yesterday (sat 3/19/11) for the powder at Kirkwood! The Carson Spur was closed, so most people coming from the bay area probably just went somewhere else instead, so it was pretty empty on the mountain. Even with only lift 6 running to the top, lines were never longer than 5 min or so. chair 10 never opened due to wind, and the backside wasn't open either. Neither are open today, either, but I'm already back in the bay area.
