12/10/2013 3:12:14 PM Hello All, My family and I are taking a road trip to Salt Lake City from Southern California.  We will head there right after Xmas and stay for a week.  We will most likely check out Brighton and Park City.  It will be my first time boarding outside of California.   I am a bit concerned about the road/driving condition between St. George and Salt Lake City.  I will be driving a rwd sedan.  Anyone has experience driving any part of this stretch of highway?  Any helpful advice and/or pointers would be appreciated.   Thank you in advance!

12/9/2011 3:03:15 PM Everytime I go with my wife, I stay with her most of the times. Come to think of it, when my brother goes with his girlfriend, he stays with her, too. I usually end up I get some good runs while my wife is resting at the lodge. If we go with friends, we usually split up where the slower folks go with her, and I try to hang with the faster folks.   From my experience, someone is always waiting for someone else. Also, didn't your friends (guys and guys) waited for you when you started out?
11/30/2011 3:59:37 PM I saw the cat in about a minute.
11/30/2011 3:10:10 PM My wife was watching it last night. I had my chance to watch it guilt-free with her, but my stomach was hurting, so I couldn't watch it. Oh well, maybe she'll watch it again next year.
11/29/2011 3:47:17 PM This post is shameless for points... unless it gets marked as spam.
11/29/2011 3:43:10 PM Unless they start charging annual fees for screen names :-)
11/29/2011 3:35:11 PM They don't use all the letters, and pass the savings on to you![/QUOTE] Maybe it means MOre than just monDAY. Therefore, MODAY.
11/23/2011 3:06:14 PM If Burton wants to get into skis, it's more likely they would just acquire a company that already make. For instance, they did that with Channel Islands for surf boards.
11/21/2011 6:53:31 PM It's hard to believe that this is a college paper because it doesn't have proper citation of sources. It looks more like guerrilla marketing to me. Regardless whether it's marketing or raising awareness, this article accomplished both because I am thinking about eco-friendly wax.
11/18/2011 3:38:58 PM I can't speak on any of the board you listed, but I have a Sierra Reverse Camber (which is a poor man's version of the Burton Custom V-rocker). The board rides better than my first board, Option Readline, because it's lighter and seems to be more responsive. However, my older board seems to be more stable.   My Sierra RC is a reverse camber version of the Sierra Crew (a poor man's version of the Burton Custom). If you are into the Custom, from what I hear is a good all around board, consider the less pricey Sierra Crew.   Hope that helps. Btw, I have two kids, too, so I feel you. My oldest is 8, and he skies. So sometimes I take him with me, but he can only do green runs. Can't wait for the day he can go with me on blue runs. :-)
11/18/2011 3:29:55 PM Reposting what I said from another thread (http://www.trusnow.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=49583). Besides my advice below, try going to a local clearance/used snowsport store. I bought a pretty good setup (boots, skies and bindings) for my son.   "1. Invest in comfortable mid flex boots and mid-flex bindings. Buy prior year models to save $ or buy them used at local stores. IMO, boots and bindings impact your ride the most when you are a beginner. I have Burton Hail boots and Burton Mission bindings.   2. At first, buy a used board. Better yet, ask your friends if you could borrow their old boards. Chances are that regular riders have at least one spare board. My brother and I each have an  board that we lend to friends. We love snowboarding and are more than willing share our passion with friends and newcomers. There are times we let people borrow boots, pants, etc. as long as they fit in them. Once you know your style, then invest in a good board.    3. Get helmet and googles. You need to protect your head and eyes.   4. Of course, water-proof clothes.   5. The rest are good to have, but not really needed. I would buy wrist guards and butt pads. It's one thing you can count on is that you are going to fall a lot."
11/16/2011 8:06:24 AM @BunnySloper, It's a Mt High thread. If you don't go to Mt High, you are not allow to post.
11/10/2011 12:56:21 PM Holy crap!! Robo rider!!! LOL! A helmet is plenty of protection for me.  If U are hitting huge kickers I can see wearing a back protector and impact shorts. Or if U are a newb in the park and don't want to get banged-up so U wear shin or knee protectors and impact shorts.....  But, a full suit of armor is not needed IMO. [/QUOTE] Just in the case where someone is cutting me off at the lift line, I am getting a katana and semi-auto hand gun. You can't be too careful. :-)   Kidding aside, I have a wife and kids who rely on me for their lifelihood. I want to get home in one piece. I didn't wear an armor until I got ramped into by an out-of-control snowboarder. That was pleasant. Now, I don't feel a thing when I fall most of the time, except for my pride. Riding is a lot more enjoyable.
11/10/2011 11:59:52 AM 1. Whether you are a pro or not, you WILL misjudge a jumb, a turn, a rotation, etc. One of those mistakes could be deadly. A helmet could soften the blow of mistakes. 2. There are riders/skiers who ride with no real control. They might have over estimated their skill level and/or have bitten more than they could chew. Those riders/skiers WILL crash into you. A helmet could soften the blow from the crash.   3. There are people who love you and care for you. Why would you want to (i) make them worry more than they have to by not wearing a helmet and (ii) make them take care of you when you are in the hospital because you didn't wear a helmet? A helmet could ease their worries and prevent you from wasting their time on you.   That's how I see things. Snowboarding is a dangerous sport, and I ride with helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, padded shorts, and a vest that protects my back, chest, shoulders and arms.
