9/3/2014 12:11:11 AM discussion about the Farmer's Almanac predictions http://opensnow.com/news
5/24/2014 2:46:22 AM I didn't see anything on this so with it only a few weeks away now here we go... Big announcement with Donovan being left off the team although it was rumored.  It seemed to me that he would have been a good late game substitution if you are down a goal with his history of goal scoring at the international level.  I trust Klinsmann though and cant wait for this to get underway.
3/31/2014 9:56:15 AM So I have been riding up in Tahoe for the last 5 seasons. About 95% sure I will buying a season pass for Mammoth next year as it just makes more sense for me to do Mammoth even though I will miss all my Tahoe riding buddies. I am interested in finding people who are down for ride shares from LA area to Mammoth. I live in Ventura but work in Woodland Hills so almost any LA location can work. I may be down to lease share as well so if you have an opportunity for next season please let me know.

12/14/2013 12:13:33 PM Are there any Mammoth spiltboarders out there?  I live in So Cal and am trying to get into splitboarding this year.  My plan is to get my feet wet with my experienced friends in Tahoe but with my new job my vacation time is limited.  It would be nice to be able to charge up to Mammoth for splitboarding sessions on the weekends. Would be stoked if any seasoned splitboarders would be willing to take on a newb.  I am a fairly strong powder rider so the newb factor is purely on the splitboarding side.  I plan on taking an Avy 1 course in Tahoe before going out on any tours.

10/11/2013 2:14:37 PM First prediction by BA for Tahoe: http://https://opensnow.com/dailysnow/post/1617 First prediction by Joel for Colorado https://opensnow.com/dailysnow/colorado Both openly admit that long range forecasts are unpredictable but still nice to hear they are cautiously optimistic.  Accu Weather is predicting solid winter months.

9/17/2013 11:39:46 AM I have a pair of 10/11 Malavitas Mediums in black that are in really good condition.  I would like to trade them for a pair of est Malavitas or Cartels in really good condition. let me know if you are interested. Will post pictures soon.
1/11/2013 6:44:22 PM Looking to buy either of these bindings in M.  Let me know if you have them.  I also may be willing to trade my NOW bindings for them.  I have only used them twice.  I went to the Burton Demo tour last weekend and ended up loving the Joystick so I bought it.  My only two boards now are both EST so I think I rather have that than my NOW bindings. http://now-snowboarding.com/
12/17/2012 7:31:27 AM This site is pretty sweet: http://opensnow.com It has a local expert from different regions of the country predicting snow fall for the region.  Each guy on the site lives to predict snow fall.  Of course it is the weather so no matter it is hard to predict but these guys give it everything they have so digging the new site.  tahoeweatherdiscussion is now closed and has moved to this site. You can customize a dashboard which will show you predicted snowfall for a wide slew of mountains so you can try to chase the pow in your local region and beyond if you wish. Pretty sweet.
12/17/2012 6:50:37 AM Sorry if this was posted elsewhere but I didn't see it. This thread is for giving your impressions of the binding AFTER riding them or asking questions. My initial impression is that I really like them.  I do not think there is a tremendous difference but I "felt" a little more edge control and more natural coming in and out of hard carves. My buddy said that overall my carving looked a little smoother and more rounded.  Overall I just really liked the feel.  I was going to do a side by side comparison where the next day I went back to my Malavitas but I didnt want to take them off because I was liking the feel.  I will do it on my next trip though and update posts. I am 5'9" and weigh about 155, I wear boot size 8.5 and was using the medium binding with the medium bushing.
12/5/2012 10:41:08 PM ... ... ... ... ... I have two AK Cyclic pants in Large that are both slightly used with no rips, stains, or tears in slightly used condition.  Both have been used less than ten days.  One is black and the other is tan.  Bryman who bought the tan said they are in "prime condition" and the black ones are in as good of shape. 115  105   100  95 shipped to CONUS addresses for the tan. SOLD125 115 105 100 95 90 shipped to CONUS addresses for the black. I am looking for new Smith I/O goggles as well if you are interested in trade. Also looking for a pair of Malavita Est or Cartel Est...wouldn't necessarily expect straight up here.
