2/27/2013 9:35:39 PM Sporting stickers is like free advertisement for companies...I don't even know why some companies actually sell their stickers.  I order some parts from GoPro and they sent me a whole set of their stickers ranging from large to small.
2/25/2013 12:15:04 PM Got to demo the Powder Snake 160 for almost the entire day on Saturday and I really like the board! It's super stable on groomers for bombing and super floaty in the POW. The thing just rips through everything. The board feels really playful and riding switch was no harder on it than on my Burton Hero. I did notice that it's less poppy than my Nitro Team but the Nitro is a traditional camber board, but somewhat similar to the Hero. I love how stable the Powder Snake is at high speed and carving is so easy and precise. I really like the board for the purpose that it's built for and it really fits my riding style well. I want a board that I can take to the mountain under any condition and this board is exactly that. I did also demo a K2 Ultra Dream. The board is great and it handles awesome, but it's much stiffer than the Powder Snake and feels less playful. I have to say that the Powder Snake fits my riding style better. Unfortunately, they did not have a Charlie Slasher available for demo. But considering my riding style which involves very few POW days, I think the Powder Snake would fit the bill better.  I will most likely go with the Powder Snake 160. The price is unbeatable, even cheaper than what I paid for my Hero.  Thank you all for your feedback.
2/22/2013 11:16:25 PM  Yup, after looking at the sizing chart, I probably gonna go with a 160, instead of the 156. I want a board that I can just bring to the mountain and don't have to worry about what kind of condition it is. After some reading and research, the Powder Snake seems like a good candidate. But of course, I have to ride it myself to see. I'm heading up to Mt. Hood Meadows tomorrow and gonna demo a few powder board that they have. I think they have a Powder Snake 160 available, gonna sure try that out.  I just looked at the YES 420 and the only size offered is a 148, so I guess it's a powder board but not very great on groomers.   You got PM.  Yes, I thought exactly. I only hate it for the groomers when I have to keep up with my friends when they are bombing down the hill. If I do get a Powder Snake I will probably try to sell the WWW and depends on how it works out, I may even get rid of the Hero too.  
2/22/2013 7:38:09 PM Well let's put it this way: K2 WWW = NoodleNitro Team = StiffBurton Hero = Between the 2 aboveWinterstick = Super stiff So, they are not quite the same boards. I started out with the Nitro for an all around board but wanted something more playful, so I got the K2 WWW. The K2 WWW is really playful but lacks the stability of the Nitro Team. This why I went with the Burton Hero which is in between the 2. The Hero is a great board so far, but it isn't a POW board board by any means.  You are right, I can use the Winterstick for a Powder specific board but it's not playful at all. It's just a hard charging unforgiving board. I looked at the Charlie Slasher and read many great reviews about it. It's actually a board I have been eyeing for awhile now. The reason I'm looking at the Salomon Powder Snake is because it is a twin but also a powder specific board. Another is that I found one for even cheaper than a Charlie Slasher.
2/22/2013 5:03:35 PM I typically ride with a group of friends that like to bomb groom runs and hit jumps here and there. I personally like to mess around with ground tricks like nose rolls and butters. I normally ride a Burton Hero and it's great for that purpose. However, on POW days, I find myself (the group as well with their mostly all-mountain/freestyle boards) struggling with the Hero. I have been looking for a POW board to add to my quiver for a very long time but had not found anything that can justify paying so much money for 1 board that I might only ride once or twice a season. So I came across the Salomon Powder Snake 156 for a fairly good price. The best thing about this board is that it's suppose to be great of groomers and very playful as well because it is a mid-flex tapered twin. Does anyone have experience with this board?  I currently own the following boards: 2012 Burton Hero 1552011 K2 WWW Rocker 1542010 Nitro Team 1552006 Winterstick ST 159 As you can see, I kinda have a quiver for most conditions except POW.
2/22/2013 10:34:20 AM Well, it's going to be dumping tonight and tomorrow at all of the mountains in Oregon. Since this is going to be my last weekend in Oregon, I want to check out Mt. Hood, as I have already checked out Mt. Bachelor and Willamette Pass.  Any one interested in meeting up and taking a few laps? I am an intermediate rider. I do not really ride park but comfortable with hitting small to medium jumps. I ride a Nitro Team (All-Mountain) so it won't be that great in the powder (I may try to demo a powder board though either a Salomon Powder Snake or a Capita Charlie Slasher).  If you are interested in meeting up, let me know.   
2/20/2013 10:44:39 PM I sometime ride with a small backpack with a Camelbak attached and sometimes I don't.  Thing that are in my jacket regardless:Phone/MP3 playerDriver's LicenseInsurance ID cardLift passCredit cardCashCar keyLeash lock When I ride without the backpack:Burton EST ToolGoPro(s) When I ride with the backpack backpack:Burton Bullet ToolWaterAdvilSnack barsHand warmersExtra goggleExtra fleece jacketGoPro(s)Targus pole for my GoPro camera   
2/8/2013 3:11:48 PM Just get a 4X4 or 4WD sticker and pretend that your car is four-wheel drive/all-wheel drive  Honestly, why would you need chains for 2-5 inches of snow?
2/8/2013 12:43:55 PM Definitely get protective gear. If you want her to stick with the sport, do everything you can to keep it fun for her. Falling hard on her behind isn't gonna be fun without some cushion. I reccommend a few things: 1. Have her watch videos. 2. Have her spend sometime first at the local hills (Snowboarding is all about practice) Snowboarding definitely have a pretty steep learning curve, but it is ridiculously fun once they are able to link turns.  As for protective gear: The Pro-Tec IPS shorts works pretty well or you can look into those Nike combat gear or McDavids protective shorts evern under shirt. Also get her some knee pads, I have used cheap $10 a pair volleyball knee pads and it has worked out great.
12/10/2012 7:03:19 PM  My Union Force are brand new, this year's model. Overall, I'm happy with them...good flex and comfy, only thing that I'm not happy about is the toe strap release.
12/10/2012 6:37:10 PM One thing I do hate about the Union that I don't have a problem with on the Cartel is difficulties releasing the toe strap.
12/7/2012 11:11:12 AM Honestly, the only reason I come on to trusnow.com anymore is for the forum. I don't even browse or even thought about shopping on here anymore.
11/29/2012 10:19:18 PM Even the PNW is not doing that great. Only Crystal Mountain and Stevens Pass is open right now. White Pass, Snoqualamie Pass and Baker are all not open due to insufficient coverage. All these resorts opened the week before Thanksgiving week last season. It's certainly a slow start for alot of resorts this year.
11/21/2012 12:26:53 PM I'm tired of ski resorts posting all kinds of pictures of how beautiful their mountain look covered with snow but not planning to open anytime soon....
11/21/2012 11:11:12 AM  Burned the socks and my feet along with it.... Yes, nice shower and feet wash after that day. No mushrooms growing on my feet yet.
