12/9/2011 8:53:32 PM look for jackets and pants with a 10,000 waterproof rating and 10,000 breathability rating. that seems to be the point where snowboard clothing gets really solid. im not a big fan of burton stuff as its overpriced and you can get just as good stuff or better for less cash. dont just look at burton because they are the biggest name in snowboarding and have the most stuff. look around and see if you can find other stuff you like.
11/4/2011 2:24:35 PM not everybody thinks that wearing a helmet is the coolest thing. i was one of these people that hated helmets but my mom made me wear one but i am glad she did. you just never know when you will catch your back edge or when someone will cut you off and you go kartwheeling down the hill (which happened to me last year and made me very very thankful for my helmet)just goes to show that mommy knows best
10/27/2011 8:06:11 PM i would really recommend the destroyer. i would also look at this years destroyer doubledog. it is the hybrid camber. it will help for pop and edge hold and stuff. it will definately be more poppy than the chillydog.
10/18/2011 12:48:39 PM i bought some dc pants in medium and they are pretty baggy. i would say that i would normally wear medium pants. i can fit a bunch of pads under them and stuff. i would say i probably could have got a small butthe medium works out good with the pads and stuff
10/13/2011 2:30:13 PM im gona hopefully go up to boyne in michigan if mother nature cooperates for me.
10/12/2011 8:03:26 PM every christmas break i stay in travese city and last year i tried to hit up most of the decent places within 2 hours of traverse. me and my uncle hit up places from nubs nob to caberfae and crystal mountain. i would have to say that i liked nubs nob the best. they have a lot of nice and long runs and they have a great intermediate/advanced park with a lot of ollie on rails and stalls and wall rides and stuff like that. they also had a pipe but it wasnt ready during christmas. we went to boyne highlands for thanksgiving weekend and they had a really nice run open that day which was fairly long. i havnt been there for the regular season yet so i cant really tell you about the park and the rest of the HILL. boyne mountain was also pretty good all around with the runs but this year they were a little weak on the park. again this was during christmas so they would probably get more stuff up later in the season. but the boynes can get VERY expensive during the holidays. i think something like $60 for a day ticket. schuss mountain had a really nice park and expecially the one day that we made it up for presidents day weekend. ive heard that otsego has a really nice park but are only open on thursday and friday to the public. we're definately going there this year. DO NOT GO TO ANY OF THE PLACES IN TRAVERSE CITY THOUGH. im talking about mt. holiday or hickory hills. mt holiday is tiny, has a terrible park, is full of people who just sit around on the rails and boxes that you are supposed to ride on, and i could walk up the tiny hill faster than what it would take to wait in line and get on the lift. hickory hills is better. they are less crowded, have, a few better features in the park and has better runs. they dont have lifts though. just tow ropes. i dont recommend staying there all day because the ropes will WEAR YOU OUT. crystal mountain had some solid runs that i would say were compareable to nubs nob's runs. their park wasnt very good though. i think it was just like an option of a rail or a box then a big butter box. then they had another park with a couple (around) 20ft kickers which in my opinion were poorly built. i only went to caberfae once and that was at night so they didnt have too much stuff open. the park had an ollie on rail, two boxes and a c-rail. nothing special but it was better than crystals park. the runs were decent. longer than schuss's runs but a little shorter than crystal's or nubs's. i probably would have liked cab a lot better during the day. soo all in all, if you were looking for a place to ride a lot of park i would say to go to schuss, nubs, otsego, or maybe one of the boynes. schuss had BY FAR the best park that ive been to. they also had short lift lines. if you would like a lot of solid runs i would go to crystal, nubs, or one of the boynes. the boynes are usually pretty decent all around but expensive. the boynes, caberfae and nubs are the best all around resorts in my opinion. it just depends on what you like to ride and where you are in michigan.
10/9/2011 5:28:19 PM nah youll be doing triple cork 1620's, prolly go to the x-games this year and whenever the winter olymics are in a few years.
10/9/2011 5:16:17 PM ^^^ well if you look sick im pretty sure you are gona ride 50x better rite?
10/8/2011 9:21:54 AM yeah i have ride lx's and they work for me wherever i take them. i might have worded that a little wierd. you dont need freestyle bindings to ride freestyle. it just helps a little bit.
10/7/2011 9:17:47 PM i looked up those salomon's and they are a mid flexing binding. they are intended to be used like all mountain bindings which is kinda like what you are doing. you might want bindings a little bit softer for the jibs and jumps and stuff. as long as you arent doing really agressive riding on black diamonds you should look at bindings with a flex of probably from 2-3 out of 5. if you were considering flows i would go with m9's or maybe the fives which are both intended for all mountain/freestyle riding. dont go too cheap with flows though. i looked at the forum factions and they are kind of beginner bindings. i think i still stand by the union contacts. they are really light and thegoodide.com says they have really good shock absorbtion which will be good for you on the kickers. they arent going to be too soft or too stiff for you i think. all in all a great binding. i would also look at the burton cartels. im not sure what your price range is but these are both a little more than $200 for the 2012 models. maybe you can find a deal on last years models?
10/7/2011 3:58:46 PM picking out some bindings will take some narrowing down. it has to do with a lot of preferance. are you going to be jibbing a lot or mainly doing kickers? do you like softer bindings or stiffer and more responsive bindings? would you like to try flows or traditional bindings? what bindings do you have right now? union is a really good binding brand and you cant go wrong with their contacts.
10/7/2011 1:42:17 PM TruSnow still has last years youngblood doubledog for $280? i might look at the capita stairmaster if i were you. it is a cambered board which will help with pop and edge hold. its $339 on here. i dont know what your price range is exactly.
10/6/2011 1:53:32 PM those pics of wolf creek are so cool. looks like the middle of winter. wont be much longer!
10/4/2011 6:44:57 PM i would not get the scallywag if i were you. it is more of a jibbing board and because it is pretty soft, its not going to be too versatile. since you like big kickers i would recommend the forum destroyer in the doubledog. this is forums version of hybrid camber. the hybrid camber will help out a lot with pop and edge hold on your icy snow in pensylvania and it will still have a playful rocker feel when you hit the rails and boxes and stuff. my uncle has been riding a destroyer for about 5 years and has been quite happy with it. but the destroyer doubledog just came out this year so you would have to get the 2012. i just got a 2011 youngblood doubledog. it wont be as good on the big kickers but i think it would be worth checking that one out too. hope this helps.
10/4/2011 6:35:33 PM i got my first board at a ski/snowboard swap. the boards will most likely be used but you can get some good deals. also look on craigslist. some beginner brands would be lamar, morrow, solomon, rossignol, but like the guy before me said burton and other brands make cheaper beginner brands too.
