7/22/2014 2:27:29 AM Hi everyone. I'm looking at getting into back country ski touring. Looks fun to get out of the resorts. Also, me and my mates like to go ice climbing in back-country areas where we usually have to trek 6+ hours in snow shoes to get to them. Someone suggested that with cross-country skis we could do this in half the time. I have done a bit of research but not overly helpful so far. So the questions: 1. If I'm looking at trekking up (and skiing down) in areas where I would normally have snow shoes (say shin deep loose snow mostly, but some knee deep), what kind of cross country skis should I get? I have seen alot of the thin style, but they seem to be mainly for skating/races on groomed areas etc. Is this right? I would have thought those skinny skis would have trouble going downhill in powder.. 2. If I am going through knee deep lose snow (where even snow shoes sink a bit), will cross country/back-country skis really make a huge difference? We normally take 30 kg packs (66 pounds), apparently we could either still carry these packs or we could put them on a sled. Can anyone shed any light on this? Cheers Dan Byers
6/6/2012 1:02:12 AM I keep searching for things, protective gear in skateboarding, facemasks in casual clothing etc, and the same results come up, including bike seats and a bunch of other irrelevant results. Can you guys fix this so we can actually use your search functions??
7/19/2011 4:12:44 AM Just got MASSIVELY stuffed around, ordered over 1 month ago but still haven't got my gear because TruSnow shtooked up their site and didn't say Thirty Two couldn't be shipped internationally and let me pay for and order it!!! They emailed me but my email provider blocked TruSnow emails so they cancelled my order and only now I am getting my stuff shipped, less the 32 boots. If the boots said NOTE: CANNOT BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE OF US like the rest of the gear I wouldn't have ordered. I didn't have time to find another pair of boots and I had to hire shit for my 1st trip down to the snow! I pointed this out to the customer service person who contacted me and they simply sent me to the information about what can be shipped internationally, ignoring the point I was making to them that it didn't state it when I went to add the gear to my shopping cart like if you went to buy Burton gear. To add insult to injury the customer service person made me feel like it was entirely my fault instead of acknologing their mistake!!! I was telling them so they could fix it and instead they ignore it and its still doesn't have the notice for Thirty Two gear like it does for Burton gear!!! Seriously PISSED OFF!!! THE INITIAL ERROR IS ENTIRELY TRUSNOW'S FAULT AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN OFFER A DISCOUNT OR ANYTHING - MISERABLE INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! (I do accept that my email blocking some TruSnow emails furthered the problem) I ordered over US$600 and recieved: *POOR & DISMISSIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE, *FAILURE TO FIX PROBLEMS WHEN POINTED OUT TO THEM *COMPLETE LACK OF CARE & INTEREST FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE PERSONNEL *SLOW AND POOR RESPONSES ONCE I REALISED THE ERROR AND TRIED TO ACT QUICKLY TO RECTIFY IT I'm passing this complaint on to someone higher up and I'll see where it goes from here, if I get the same poor response here as I did from the Customer service personnel I'll be taking my business elsewhere in future!!! I don't want a discount or anything monetary but I highly recommend you fix the problem for future users! It would have been nice to have expressed posted my order! Chronology: 1. I ordered the gear. 2. Email saying you need my government issued ID (sent to trash) 3. I realised my gear hadn't arrived and emailed TruSnow 4. (2-3 days later)I got another email stating TruSnow needed a copy of my government issued ID 5. I changed my spam settings 6. I sent a copy of my drivers license 7. (1-2 days later) I received another email stating TruSnow can't ship Thirty Two gear 8. I asked for the gear to be shipped without the boots 9. (3-4 days later) my order finally got shipped. I accept the first delay was my fault and the need for me to hire gear 2 weekends ago was my fault. But because of the SIGNIFICANT delays from TruSnow I will need to hire gear again this weekend. (at a cost to me of around $70 plus the fact that the gear is substandard!!)

6/8/2011 5:52:45 AM I was wondering why my posts got reported as spam and if there was any way to challenge it? Bit annoyed, I've been trying to be as helpful as possible.. Alot of the stuff I've been posting has been aimed at other Australians and relevant to the Australian weather so I figure thats why some of my posts have been flagged.. (especially when there are reviews like this one: ""Looks Great" 3/13/2011      Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No Name: Videograss Snowboard DVD Pros: cool, Experience:   I would like to own this dvd. ") Other quick qu (figured I may as well ask here) - I was wondering how to change the 'my setup' part of my profile? Was hoping to set that up now that I realise I can.. I click on my name and see it but can't edit it when I click edit profile.. Any assistance would be great :)
6/6/2011 4:22:37 AM I've noticed more and more that my mates and most on here don't value wrist protection, some don't think its worthwhile, some think falling safely is enough, personally I've seen too many broken wrists in my 12 yrs on the slopes to think I know better. Where do you stand?
6/4/2011 10:55:31 PM I've been riding for 8+ yrs now and last year I took a bus load of mates down for a 3 day weekend and was astonished to see how many of them weren't going to wear wrist guards!! Seriously to all you beginner boarders, or anyone trying anything new, grab a pair of wrist guards (either buy or rent them, both options are cheaps as!) So whether your learning to board or learning new tricks or trying a rail or box for the first time... DON'T FORGET YOUR WRIST GUARDS!!! Broken wrists are the quickest ways to lose your confidence boarding!
