12/9/2010 3:04:58 PM conditions in North NJ and PA are never as good as up further north. However, they are enjoyable with enough snow... so midseason/later in the season is always better. If you're itching, just go for it though. I like Blue Mountain, usually less crowded than Camelback in my opinion.
12/9/2010 2:59:46 PM Check the resort website for local lodging. Usually they are featured and offer shuttle buses to the base of the mountains. I've only gone to Killington, but the few times I've been it was at Mountain Green and some other one I don't remember. Some also offer shuttles to and pickup from wherever you want to go, as long as you call a little bit ahead of time.
12/9/2010 2:56:51 PM Baselayer/moisture-wicking fabric layer and a thermal and/or t-shirt. That's about all. I also bring a change of clothes in case the snow finds its way into my lovely areas.
12/9/2010 2:55:20 PM Thanks for the heads up on the GoPro giveaway. Just signed up.
12/9/2010 2:51:39 PM Exactly what jhoang6 said. Daily login, good and reliable reviews on products, purchasing products, and relevant comments on the forums all accumulate points. Avoid posting single word responses that aren't relevant to the topic because it'll probably end up as spam. :D
12/7/2010 3:17:33 PM I usually go by ratings/rank and size. To me brand name doesn't really matter as much as features and how it looks. However if it comes down to identical gear, I'll go with a name brand I'm more familiar with (as many other people probably do).
12/7/2010 3:15:40 PM Started sometime in high school... sucked terribly until my brother started taking me regularly. Now I look forward to every winter, haha.
12/7/2010 3:13:50 PM Awesome post. When I started riding this could have come in handy, so it's a great post for all riders to learn a little something new.
12/7/2010 3:09:55 PM congrats to all three winners today!
12/7/2010 3:05:42 PM How's the weather/trails up in Killy? I know a few people going up there soon and was wondering how the conditions are so far?
3/28/2010 2:24:41 PM Helmets are helmets, but every company sizes a bit differently. You should check every brand to see which sizes in each company fit your head the best, and then choose one of your favorites there. My ProTec Ace Freecarve in XL fits so perfect, yet almost all other companies' helmets in XL put some baaad pressure on my skull.
3/28/2010 2:22:50 PM I've got a stiff-as-wtf Salomon Pulse with a pair of entry-level Salomon Codes and then I upped to Burton Triads. New board, new bindings --> 10 Bataleon ET and Union Sierra Contacts. Only the triads and Union Sierra Contacts are gonna be regularly used, so I just went with voting a binding-per-board.
3/28/2010 2:17:58 PM I like Windham a lot. Huge variety up in NY, for just a bit longer drive than Camelback or Mt. Creek. Haven't hit up Hunter yet, but I've heard Windham > Hunter. It's a nice, large mountain not too far away, but can't touch VT unless VT conditions are utterly crap.
3/28/2010 2:16:20 PM VTBear I'm with you on that. My first day riding in true powder (up in VT, coming from NJ) was a workout until I got my board waxed and I switched up some techniques. All in all, I'd take some light powder over the typical NJ conditions anyday.
3/28/2010 2:14:52 PM Yay, more random threads. Anyway, to comment on TBT, I just got the 2010 Bataleon Evil Twin 155 and the TBT is pretty nice. Helped me get 180s much smoother. It's a positive camber true twin. It's got flex but not too much, and I can roll all-mountain and park just as easily. Really really like it.
