4/15/2014 3:12:39 PM ^well, that was entertaining...makes me wanna shred
4/13/2014 11:51:11 AM ^ good pics...that still looks like some damn good snow.  Couple of days after the big dump we got a couple weeks ago, it got super hot and melted half the mtn bone dry.
4/7/2014 7:35:20 PM I could never get p-tex from candles to stay in a gouge for more than a couple days...it just cracks and chunks fall out.  Candles still have their place, but not in core shots, imo. Ended up spending a little more on a p-tex iron (similar to a soldering iron) and some higher quality/denser p-tex strips from Tognar, the repairs from which are holding up a lot better.
4/7/2014 4:29:08 PM awesome trip, infiniti.  Don't know if it's just the lens, but your board either looks small for the conditions or you don't have you bindings set back...either way, looks like you were handling it o.k. As usual, inspiring vid, spence.  Eaglecrest ftw...even without sun Excellent photos, bry.  snow doesn't look bad at all, considering
4/6/2014 12:48:04 PM of course...he lives in toronto, ontario, so why wouldn't he mean pennsylvania?
4/3/2014 3:25:19 PM Got another 2 feet over the last two days, bringing the storm total for the week to almost 4 feet.  Weird how sometimes we'll get a ton of snow but tahoe will get only a few inches...even mammoth, which is only 30 miles away from us, only got a couple inches from this last storm.   Crispy cold, bluebird mornings and snowing after noon.  Snow was unusually fluffy and I felt kind of off balance at first, but got used to it.  Only 2 lifts are now running on weekdays, so there was a lot of hiking, but fresh tracks were worth it. Didn't get many pics because I accidentally put the camera back in my pocket while it was still turned on (got a bunch pics and video of my pocket), draining the battery...and I forgot my charger.
3/29/2014 12:16:53 PM ^vid looked like a ton of fun. Faceshots-o-rama. I love riding in blizzard conditions...although I prefer the option to get in the glades.  ^^incredible avalanche shot, spence.  That mtn looks so gnarly.
3/28/2014 3:12:06 PM got dumped with a foot of good quality, cold, relatively dry snow.  Mtn was deserted, so I rode solo through the nuking storm all day.  Next morning was bluebird and still good and cold - super fast, high performance snow. However, even though it was almost knee deep in spots, I could still feel the icey bottom on super deep turns.  Fresh tracks all day.  Warmed up/slowed down a little after noon, but still awesome...second best day of the year (which doesn't mean much considering our base is next to nothing due to the drought)
3/25/2014 10:55:36 PM there's probably nothing wrong with it...sometimes people just want to get rid of perfectly good stuff, quick.  I've been known to let stuff go for rock bottom just because I knew I was never going to use it again and I just wanted it out of my house, asap. The edges look clean, but check to see if there are any cracks (even then, a cracked edge isn't really going to affect anything...especially on a freeride board) "dimples" kinda look like the owner put a storage coat of wax on a never scraped it off (?)...if so, the fact he put storage wax on means he knows what he's doing and cared about the board.  If that's after he scraped, that's a pretty shitty wax job and might be cause for concern those "gouges" are nothing but shallow scratches - they won't affect performance at all (you'll probably do worse the first day you ride it).  In fact, I've ridden with a giant 4" long / 1/2" wide chunk of ptex ripped out of my board, core completely exposed, and there was no detectable difference in glide.
3/21/2014 1:52:54 PM ^^blue, blue, blue...man, I could use some of that right now
3/18/2014 2:40:42 PM wish we'd get at least one more dump this season
3/13/2014 1:17:18 PM ^^we have that conveyer belt thing at our resort...it's annoying. It's easier for liftees because they don't have to maintain the snow under the takeoff, but beginners get tripped up by the abruptness of riding onto rough rubber, which causes a lot more stoppages.
3/10/2014 12:42:17 PM ^living the dream - good for you, bry
3/8/2014 12:08:40 PM I agree, that's good snowboarding.  That's how I ride: unless I'm bombing for speed, I'm always doing surfy turns...on groomers and pow.  Pissed me off last weekend seeing so many "snowboarders" traversing straight or sideslipping down the mountain and just chunking up the powder because they can't snowboard worth a sh*t.  Now, I understand the skiers argument...although most of them aren't much better (even though they think they are).  It would be ideal if people who don't have a pow board and/or don't know how to ride pow, stayed on the groomers and learned on the sides...but that's never going to happen.
