12/12/2014 10:37:11 AM Seems like this storm didn't really bring the 2 or so feet that they said we would get. Most resorts say they got around 7-9 inches, but based on looking at the web cams they seem to be rounding up quite a bit. Lets see how the rest of the day goes, but it seems the storm was a bit over-hyped.
12/8/2014 10:32:49 PM I find practicing switch on my own boring, that's why it's good to go with some friends, your girlfriend or family and just cruise around the hill with them riding switch. I'm not really a park rider, but I do find riding switch just makes you a better snowboarder all around, and also makes the time spent with the family on the easy runs a bit more entertaining.
12/8/2014 10:28:46 PM I haven't been in school for a long time and wont be ever again, hooray!
12/7/2014 11:22:37 PM That is a pretty good repair.  That little bit of damage was not at all something to warrant a new board, especially since you are just gonna bang it into something again anyways. The cardboard works fine for catching the extra epoxy, but next time use something a bit firmer that will help evenly distribute pressure from the clamps.
12/7/2014 11:17:57 PM No doubt the extra lens is the cheaper option, but like everyone says another pair of goggles is easier. It all depends on when you try to go riding.  Do you only like to go on sunny days, so this spare lens is for a 'just in case' situation.  If that is the case, then sure go with the spare lens. There are also certain types of goggles where swapping the lens is much easier than the normal kind. In general I just use a 'smoke' lens in all situations.  It does kinda suck when it gets overcast or start snowing but whatever, I've always managed.
12/7/2014 11:07:16 PM I'm hoping this next storm that is supposed t hit around wed-fri will bring some good snow.  Northstar likes to brag about the snow totals, but looking at the webcams, it sill looks pretty bad. I hope we at least get some good snow before Christmas and New Years Day.  I get both of those days off of work, and they both are pretty slow days as far as the number of people on the hill.
12/29/2013 9:03:28 PM There really isn't much snow right now. I went on Christmas day, and it was pretty firm with a light dusting on top from the snow machines.  Its up in the high 40s during the day, so it could possibly get slushy, though it didn't seem to when I was there. Really though, go to Northstar.  I can't really speak for the other resorts, but Northstar makes a lot of snow (though not nearly as much as they did in past seasons) and probably have much more open trails than the other north lake resorts.
1/6/2013 1:33:33 AM The best stance is whatever feels good to you. I put my stance at the reference points on my board and it felt normal so that's where I kept it.
1/5/2013 12:26:31 AM Anyone used the alpine replay app before? I've used things like My Tracks before, but this looks much better.  It seems a lot like EpicMix but with the use of GPS, so you get stats like speed and airtime and it shows you individual runs and everything, as well as giving you points and medals much like EpicMix does. I'm ganna try it when I go up on Sunday and see how it works.
1/4/2013 5:02:27 PM I would have to say Homewood.  Sugar Bowl is good too but I'm not sure I would call it a small local resort.  It's pretty well known. Same goes for Alpine.
1/4/2013 2:25:38 PM I'm staying at Breckenridge, but I will have to give the night sessions a try. Also at Keystone I see that they have a lot of places only accessible by cat.  There is a tour, which I wont be doing but it says there are also ones that you can ride for $5.  That's going to be a must do if there is powder.
1/4/2013 2:27:01 AM I love my Capita Indoor Survival.  It literally does it all. I would definitely demo before buying anything though.  Luckily before I bought my board there was a demo day and I was able to try out a bunch of different board types.  I didn't get to actually try the type of camber that the Indoor has, but trying all different types gave me an idea of how they all behave and I made the right guesstimate.
1/3/2013 9:12:06 PM In a few weeks I'll be going to Colorado for the first time.  I have a pass to the Tahoe resorts, so I get a discount at the Vail resorts and will be going to some of those, but I may go to some others as well. Anything I should know heading out there?  What are some of the 'secret' areas of the resort that I should be aware of.  If there is some pow where should I go?  If it ends up not snowing where should I go? Also what is the rule on leashes?  I seem to remember that they are required out there.
1/3/2013 6:30:06 PM The Swix I have is the exact same as the Dakine.
8/12/2012 2:53:46 AM That's dedication right there.
