3/2/2015 4:30:03 PM idk, Juneau has to be better than what we've got this season...45" so far (at the summit) and almost all that fell in dec, so it's all melted away.   Storms just keep missing us this year.   
3/1/2015 12:18:03 PM you haven't responded to my post or fixed the link.  MRG doesn't even allow snowboarding...this thread belongs in the "general ski discussion" section of the forums.  FAIL.
2/27/2015 8:43:16 PM broken link...couldn't watch it
2/24/2015 12:33:51 AM I haven't even gone up all this season.  Been surfing all winter, instead.  Surf's been good and water's relatively "warm" (59), but I'm really craving snowboarding...plus, looks like my season pass is money down the toilet .  That 2 ft fresh over dirt in dec (I blew off to surf) is sounding real good right now.
2/16/2015 1:01:18 PM I'm 6'1"/170 lbs.  I ride a 157 cm...I tried a 155 and it felt too short for me. There's a a lot of great deals right now because of the lack of snow.  Here's one that would be perfect for you and it's brand new and on sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171677260878?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 ...another reason this board is ideal is because it has 3BT tech to keep you from falling as much...it's what I ride...it's also what MikeD rides.
2/13/2015 1:09:21 PM thanks for the vid, mike. all we got from this last storm was rain.  Our resort is a pathetic sight of dirt rivers and occasional ice patches.  Horrible
12/30/2014 10:52:51 PM Nice looking...but most people arent big enough or don't have consistent epic conditions to rock a 165
12/27/2014 11:41:37 AM Thanks for the photos, spence.   What happened to your slash boards? Anyway, we got a good series of weather in early dec.  About 2.5 ft fresh...but with zero base under it, i wasn't motivated enough to drive 2 hrs to get it.
12/12/2014 7:15:15 PM sucks you're forbidden to go out of bounds...I realize it's mostly man-made snow, but it might be nice on that rare dump.  A lot of eastern USA resorts are similarly strict. My resort puts up little yellow caution tape and signs here and there, but it's just a suggestion...they actually let you go anywhere you want whenever you want (sometimes, that's a bad thing).  Pretty sure most western USA resorts are equally lenient. Good thing is your vertical drop is significantly longer than ours...in fact, yours is up there with most tahoe resorts.  Taking less lifts rides per day is nice on the gluteus maximus...especially if you're wearing butt pads (which I highly recommend). Great pic, btw.  
12/8/2014 12:16:16 PM haven't tried airbrakes, but, of the other "quick change" brands I've tried (Smith I/O, Von Zipper Kabong), they're still not nearly as fast and easy as just grabbing a different goggle setup from my car. I also tried the all-in-one lens route...suffered in both full sun and super flat light/darker conditions.
12/7/2014 12:48:38 PM from my experience, switching just the lens ends up being pita.  You're in a hurry, gotta take off your gloves, fingers may not be functioning well because of the cold, fingerprints get all over, etc...it's time consuming and aggravating. Best solution is to find a cheaper brand and buy two complete sets of goggles.  Set one up with a sun lens and the other a flat light lens.  Wear one while the other waits in your car (or locker, back pack, whatever), ready to grab.
12/4/2014 3:13:43 PM woo-hoo, it's official! A good storm dumped 15 inches here in mid november, but this week's big storm is way too warm and washing all the snow away
12/2/2014 1:00:47 PM why is this a "place holder"?...there's no rule that says no one other than spenser can start up a riders log.  Mike's contribution was totally legit, so I say drop "place holder" from the title and make this thread official.
11/27/2014 1:28:33 PM looks good...got me stoked.  Some of those runs looks quite steep. Granted, those trees look pretty tight, but there has to be some paths through them...somewhere.  I'm guessing those fences are permanent.  Is off-piste always forbidden, even if it dumps?  How strictly are those borders policed and what's the penalty for being caught beyond them?  (would you take the risk to find out?)
11/26/2014 2:18:53 PM is taking two boards to your resort an option?  I frequently take both a pow stick and a soft groomer board because sometimes I'm not sure what the conditions are going to be.  If I get there and don't see the glades as an option, I'd rather just noodle around on groomers (no "all mtn" board for me...just pow specific or noodle).  Fortunately, I can keep the unused board locked in my car...don't even know if it would fit in a locker.
