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.
1/3/2013 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.
7/29/2012 1:19:54 AM Just a heads up for people that are in the Sacramento area or possibly to anyone near a DC outlet. I was at the DC outlet in Folsom Thursday and they had a bunch of different snowboard boots for $15.  I don't know any specific models, but none of them had boa.  Still that's a crazy price for anyone wanting a new set of boots. I'm actually going back tomorrow to get a pair of shoes for next winter that were there for $10.  http://store.dcshoes.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11528890&cp=3448755.3531738 I can take a photo of the available boots if anyone is interested.
3/16/2012 6:57:03 PM Someone I work with is trying to get rid of their board.  He is from Peru and doesn't really need to take it back with him so I'm trying to help out.  Not really sure what the value is so just asking for offers. It's a 2010 Burton Hero Size 155 Wide with Burton Custom bindings (NON EST) that I think are also 2010. Yes, crappy cell phone pics. The board and bindings both have minor dings and scratches but are in pretty nice shape.  Base is in nice shape with a few scrapes from rocks.  I don't think it was really ridden in the park a whole lot. Here is a zoom of the worst base gouge.  Lower left in previous image.
9/8/2011 12:54:25 AM I just saw an ad on a site for this and am wondering if anyone has used it. http://bonhiver.com/ It seems cool but also seems stupid.  Just like a step in binding, your gonna get snow inside the mechanism then have to clean that stuff out.  It also seems cumbersome to have to walk in line with a binding strapped to your foot.  Doesn't seem like it has any traction on the bottom either. Can't imagine it being 100% solid.  After a while I bet the binding starts clicking around in the thing.
9/4/2011 2:04:26 PM I picked up a pair of cartels, but im concerned about the strength of the foam. My Solomon boots have a pretty spikey sole and it seems like they would rip the crap out of the footed. Maybe this stuff is pretty strong, but my Ride team bindings have pretty much a solid rubber footbed.
3/30/2011 8:55:41 PM Is putting black wax on my white base going to make it look like crap? I have wax remover and all that, but t never seems to get it all off, so I'm worried its going to stain my board somewhat.
3/10/2011 4:34:15 PM I've been wanting to hit up Nothstar all week but things kept coming up, I have a chance to go tomorrow but I'm worried about the conditions. I checked the cams and it really looks like its been raining all day despite the fact that all the info I can find says it's snowing. Anyone know what its been like up there?
2/19/2011 3:32:22 PM I just learned that there is some sort of special detergent for waterproof clothing.  Is this really necessary?  I thought that most stuff is waterproof because of how its woven, not that there is some sort of scotch guard on it or something. Is it really better to use this special soap?
2/1/2011 6:45:17 PM I figured it would be ok to post this here. My mom is trying to rent out a week at one of her time shares.  She's not making any profit off the price.  I realize it's a little close, but I figured she would have sold it by now and I didn't think to post it here till just now.
2/1/2011 4:18:50 PM I removed my stomp pad, but I want to put it back on now so I need some tape. I have some Scotch double sided permanent tape, but it says "for light-duty attaching" and says nothing about being waterproof, so I have no idea how great it would be. The tape that was on the stomp pad was was thin and clear like this is, and since my pad is clear I'd like to get it back on with some clear tape.
1/11/2011 8:23:06 PM I was looking forward to this storm coming to the sierras.  Just a few days ago we were going to get snow tues - thurs.  Now it says .1inches of snow tonight, and rain on Thursday.  Not very cool.
1/5/2011 10:16:39 PM I've had these bindings (Ride Team) for 5 years, and never really came to the conclusion that they are what make my feet hurt. Pretty much every time after a day of snowboarding I have a really bad burning sensation on the top of my feet. Mostly my front foot. What it is, is the ankle strap digging into my foot. The circled area is what digs into my foot. I tried out my buddies board with Burton C02 bindings and they were comfortable as hell. I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea on how to remedy this, maybe by making it put equal pressure on my ankle. If not I'd like suggestions for new bindings with some better straps.
12/31/2010 6:12:44 PM I'm looking at getting a Ride Kink, but I'm not sure weather I should get a 152 or a 147. The 147 seems really short for my height(6'-6'1"), but I only weight 130lbs so I'm in the lower weight range for the 152. The problem I have now is that I have a 160cm board with a weight range of 120-220lbs and It doesn't flex as much as I wish it did. It's an all mountain board, so obviously it shouldn't flex as much as a dedicated park board anyways. Ive never ridden an board other than my 160 so I'm just not sure how it will feel. All I know it that I want to ride the park and my 160 makes it a bit hard for me.
12/29/2010 11:56:46 PM I've been snowboarding for about 5 years, and have been riding the same board the whole time except for a few rentals. What I have is an 04/05 Ride Decade, and while I really haven't had any issues with it, I do think that it may be a little to stiff for my weight. I'm about 6' and weigh 130lbs. the board is a 160cm and is for 120-200lbs. While I'm within that weight range, I'm assuming its much better to be somewhere in the middle rather than the lower end. At Sugar Bowl on Monday by mid day everything turned to moguls, and I had the hardest time making my way though them, I felt like I was riding on the tips the whole time and the middle of the board wasn't sinking into the ruts. I notice a lot of boards are a thin flat surface, while mine has raised portions that make it look about twice as thick as some boards. I want a board that I can take to the park that should be noticeably better than the board I have now, but I still want to be able to cruise down some groomed runs or bomb through the trees. I'm unsure of what to get though, because it just doesn't seem like getting a board thats 5cm shorter is a whole lot of difference.
