8/7/2010 8:15:00 AM Main setup for this season will be: 2011 Never Summer Heritage 2011 Flux SF45 2010 Celsius Cirrus(boa) Play around setup 2011 Smokin MIP 2010 Burton Hero 2011 Flux SR15
4/25/2009 9:40:11 PM Right on the New York line myself about 30 minute north of Conn and 30 minutes south of Vermont.
4/24/2009 6:58:42 PM Best bet is Jiminy Peak. In all honesty all the hills about western mass only hit about 1200 vert drop to 700 vert drop so for much better riding head to southern Vermont. Butternut and Jiminy are about the same for length of runs but Butternut has much better snow making capabilities. So begining of the season you should find better conditions at Butternut. After a couple storms Jiminy is much better in my opinion. There is also Bosquet which is the smallest of them all which is between Jiminy and Butternut. Bosquet is the cheapest out of all of them during the season so is decent for when you are short on cash. Berkshire east is decent but only been there a couple times(about 15 years ago). I live basically 15 minutes from jiminy and 20 minutes from butternut and 5 minutes from bosquet so if I travel I head to Vermont.

3/25/2009 11:13:04 AM Western Mass is still open for about another week or so. They just started shutting down at night time in my area.
3/17/2009 12:12:31 AM I am 5'9" and at 180 lbs I ride the 156w BDI myself. I have no problems charging the mountains on it. I do love the BDI it is a great board you should have fun with it. It has enough flex to give you a chance with freestyle but is definitely not a noodle.
3/14/2009 7:54:01 PM If the Ozones fit you right you are gonna love them. Me buying mine was about the best decision I made on my gear this year. Just remember you are going to have to readjust your bindings a little when you get them if your old boots do not have shrink tech.

3/7/2009 8:14:35 PM I have both but prefer my Ozones. The Ozones feel a bit softer then the Hails. The speed zone lacing system  creates a very good hold.  Would suggest trying them both on and see what you like better if possible. Still plenty of support in my Ozones. Over all my opinion would be for the Ozones. But you need to try them before you buy for sure. They are definetley worth a look at the minimum.
3/7/2009 7:59:18 PM Just sounds like your edges might be a bit sharper on your capita then your old board. If it only happened once could be you are just getting used to your new board. Always some adjustment time with a new board at least for me. Would not suggest changing your edge bevels since it is already built as a freestyle board. Should already have a good bevel to it. I did notice the first day I took my BDI out I caught my edge a couple times but I was also riding cord ice. After a couple runs that went away. 
3/7/2009 5:38:51 PM Was taken down blue runs my first time. My friends had been boarding for about a month before me. I was the last skier convert. They got me to the top and sent me on my way. Think I busted a few times but caught on fairly fast, had to to keep up with them.
3/7/2009 2:16:22 PM Started in 1986(15 years old) and rode till about 1995. Moved down south and became a workaholic for about 13 years. Started again in 2008 and not planning on stopping again.
3/2/2009 6:40:36 PM Just picked up my passes for my two local resorts. Smaller hill -$275 all day and night. The largest of the hills in my area-$230 for night time only (3-10) So total for two mountains-$505
3/2/2009 6:05:22 PM Burton Custom X ICS - 158 Burton Cartel EST - Inmate orange mediums Burton Ions
2/26/2009 10:07:42 PM Will be riding this week end for sure. Looks like we might get another storm Sunday or Monday along the coast. Depends on how it develops though. Not going out Friday, to much chance of rain. The warmth should be good will keep it a bit softer then pure ice and hopefully when it does turn to ice we get hit by the storm.
