12/9/2010 12:40:07 PM Under Armor Cold works wonders. For my legs I have under armor pants and then snow pants on top, and for the top I use under armor, a light fleece and my coat. Never get cold no matter how far below 0 is it.
12/7/2010 11:47:49 AM The Sunday deals seem to be pretty crowded. Late night is hit and miss, the later you go the fewer people there are but more drunks especially during christmas break.   The other downside of late night is don't go if its been 60 degrees all day. You combine that much heat with all that snow and you get really bad fog at the base of the runs. I've had nights where I couldn't see 10ft in front of me at the bottom. As far as I know there is no where else that carries snow stuff outside Dicks, maybe REI, and the Alpine Shop. Hidden Valley has a pro shop but they don't stock much of anything. Mostly for people who forgot a helmet or need socks etc
12/4/2010 11:40:51 AM It is all about preference. If you are going to be in the park the V-Rocker is probably a better fit. For groomers and powder I find the cambered boards have a little more bite than the rockered boards.
12/4/2010 11:37:00 AM The Sierra RC isnt a narrow board, you should be fine with Larges. My Ions will fit the mediums but my Ride boots are too wide. If the Vans are not that narrow then large is the way to go. Once you adjust the straps you will be fine.
12/2/2010 9:02:04 PM The best time is weekdays before school lets out.   
12/2/2010 2:16:33 PM I have 10.5s and use a burton large on one board and a medium on another. For the large bindings you will need to tighten the straps all the way down. I think the medium fits perfect but theres a little bit of overhang of the boot past the tip of the binding. I would really say its preference. Theres no wear of the front of my boots so the overhang isn't causing any toe drag. I will say width wise the medium holds my boots tight where theres a little wiggle room in the larges. What board are you putting these on? If possible go to a local shop and try both on your board to see what fits best. I use mediums on my T7 because once i have my front binding set at 16deg the large bindings overhung the edges too far on both sides.
12/2/2010 8:48:34 AM I used to live in St Louis, the Alpine Shop (Off Lindbergh near downtown Kirkwood) usually carries a good selection especially if you are looking for more than the beginner stuff that Dicks carries. Outside of Hidden Valley, you will have to drive 5+ hours into central tennessee or northern illinois to find any other places. Well I guess you could go out to Kansas City, but Ive heard that place makes Hidden Valley look good.
11/5/2010 1:24:46 PM The Ride QI ones are really nice depending on where you are using them. So far for me they are my favorite and never fog my googles. Only downside is if its really cold or snowing hard, these are a little too breathable to keep you warm.
11/5/2010 1:18:40 PM anywhere I can find powder!
11/2/2010 1:16:09 PM I have a basic camelbak that I use for mountain biking. I found it works just fine as long is its under my coat. Only tip I have is to route the water line so it isn't exposed to the air and wind otherwise it will freeze pretty quickly.
11/2/2010 1:12:29 PM Being in Texas, hopefully I'll get in a good 10-15 days in Colorado and maybe another couple in New Mexico if I'm lucky
