|| Didn't happen to me but this is really funny/embarrassing: The last time I went snowboarding the resort was closing and my son and I were on our final run. There was a ski patrol following us, doing his sweep of the runs to make sure there wasn't anyone left on the mountain. About halfway down the run, my son and I come across a guy walking along the treeline with some outer gear and 2 snowboards. We kind of slowed down to see what was up. That's when we notice some movement down in the trees. We look down into trees and notice another dude taking his clothes off. He yells to his friend, "Ok, now throw my snowboard clothes back to me." About that time, the ski patrol guy skis up and asks what is going on. The guy on the run with the clothes gives a blank stare. The ski patrol guy yells down to the dude in the trees and asks what is going on and if he needs help. This is the exact response he got in return: Guy in the trees: "I'm so sorry sir. I'm sorry, this is really embarrassing. I underestimated the length of this run and I really had to go to the bathroom and I had to stop because I couldn't make it." Ski patrol: "That's fine, just finish going pee and get down the mountain. The resort is closed." Guy in the trees: "Umm...Oh, god this is embarrassing. Do you have a plastic bag?" Ski patrol: "What?" Guy in the trees: "I'm sorry, Sir. I'm so sorry. I can't just finish and go I .... I....I crapped my pants. Do you have a plastic bag...for my clothes." His voice is totally shaking at this point like he's gonna cry. At this point the ski patrol guy shakes his head and turns away and starts heading down the mountain. My son and I start busting up laughing and as we snowboard away down the run we hear the guy in the trees yell to his friend, "Ok, just give me my snowboard stuff. I'm leaving my other clothes here." So funny. I felt bad, but then I pictured this dude flying down the mountain trying to make it to the lodge to take a crap and having to stop instead and try to get his gear off before he craps himself and not succeeding. Funny mental image.

||The Ride wedgie beds are sweet. I'll be picking up some Ride contrabands or EX's this year.

||Hopefully that swings down toward northern Arizona. I'd love to hit some fresh pow again before the end of the season.

||Dude, Ride makes some legit boards and gear. I swear by their bindings.

|| I hate that my work filters/blocks 90% of the pictures in this thread.

||I took my nephew and niece snowboarding for the first time a few weeks ago. Sat down and watched these vids with them before we hit the mountain and I think it really helped. Nice stuff, Doug!

||Check out these videos: http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=33092 rent/borrow whatever you can before you purchase anything. There's a good chance you'll love it and want to stick with it, but if not you don't want a wasted investment. This isn't a cheap sport to get into. CHEAPER thanks to Sierra, but still not cheap.

||Bluebird for me.
|3/24/2010 3:17:31 PM
||^^^Did you read the thread? There is a video.
|3/10/2010 3:32:26 PM
||By the way, from the looks of the video your son is doing just fine for having only ridden for 1 day. I wouldn't expect him to be doing any better than that. Anyway, good luck!
