||Does anyone have experience with Demon's line of goggles? They look pretty sweet, but I haven't been able to find many reviews on them. I've also had zero luck trying to find them in any local shops. The price doesn't seem too bad; I've seen the ones shown below for around $50.

||I’ve been looking around to try and find a new bag to hold my gear; hoping to take advantage of some end of the year clearance sales. I’ve looked at the Burton Riders Bag, and it looks to be almost perfect. It has dedicated compartments for boots, goggles, and plenty of room for layers. I’ve also looked a little online at the Burton Boothaus-Large, but I don’t know if it’s more than just a big duffle bag. Does it keep your clothes separate from your boots? I was also wondering about Dakine’s Boot Locker. I’m not all that familiar with Dakine’s bags; how well do they hold up? Is there any other recommendations that I should look at, and why do you recommend them? I’ve always had good luck with Burton bags, so I’ve been leaning towards them, but I’m open minded and all about getting the most bang for my buck. Thanks!

||I know a lot of people in the area have already packed up their gear and called it a season, but now we have so much fresh snow out there, that it looks like the dead of winter rather than the beginning of spring. Question is, who’s going to be taking advantage of this unexpected gift from Mother Nature? Crystal Mountain's main chairlift this afternoon! So much snow, so few people

||My wife and I headed up to Crystal Mountain again today. It rained, snowed, sleeted, and basically had every type of weather other than sunshine; and it was awesome. I love spring riding and I’m amazed that there aren’t more people out on the slopes. Hopefully we can get up there again next weekend; they still had a good base.

||Just thought I'd share this with anyone in my neck of the woods. $219: Unlimited and Unrestriced. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

||Ok now for a serious question. I personally think ChexMix should stop including the nasty little brown rye chips in their traditional ChexMix. Without the rye chips ChexMix would be almost the perfect snack. What do you think?

||I know this topic has been done before, but the threads I found seemed dated or incomplete. Anyway, I think I should pick up a brace to wear on my left knee when I ride, but I don't want to spend the price of a new board on one. Does a decent brace for around a $100 or less exist?

||Am I the only one that finds 95% of the graphics on today’s boards to be obnoxious? It seems incredibly hard to find something that doesn’t have loud color patterns or just downright dumb graphics. Trust me, I grew up in the 80s and neon yellow wasn’t cool then and it sure as hell isn’t cool now. I see men’s boards that with graphics that should only appeal to an 8 year old girl. Why can’t someone make a board with a nice clean, rich, dignified, look about it?

||Just wondering if anyone has checked the Porkies out and if it'd be worth a 4 hour drive to spend weekend up there.

||I'm still fairly new to the sport and while I continue to get better, there's still one area that gives me fits. Does anyone have any good tips for getting off the chair lift, or is this just something I will improve at as time goes by?

||I was hoping to take advantage of some yearend clearance sales and purchase some new Burton Gore-tex gloves. The only problem is everyone appears to be out of size large in True Black. I have found a few locations that have the Underglove style. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to not having the gauntlets?
