Hello all - I'm Jeff, Chillicothe, OH. I am a new to snowboarding (Dec 2009). I started in Breckenridge and fell in love with the sensation of gliding down the hill. I have been boarding at Mad River Mountain (Ohio) and I am scheduled for a trip to Big Sky, MT at the end of Feb, 2010. I ride a Burton JoyStick (163 cm) with Burton Boots and Bindings. So far the board works for me.
