Hello everyone! I'm from Tennessee. I've always loved snowboarding and in 05 I went for the first time and havent looked back. In 07 I bought my first board, a 06 salomon scout 157. I had a pair of morrow bindings(garbage) to start out with, and last year I swapped them for Ride RX xl in size( i sport a hefty size 13 boot.)
I am 6'3 and when I started I was 170ish pounds. Now I'm a bit bigger (215) but losing more before I go for the big trip of the year. My hope is to get down to 195. Now I'm in the market for a libtech lando series 157w. I like my board size but want to try one out a little bigger.
Every year me and my friends hit up the local mountains (Paoli peaks, Stl, ober gatlinburg, and going to try out perfect north in a few weeks, once we FINALLY get snow) once or twice to get back in the swing of things then we head out west for a week. The first year we went to created butte, co and learned tons. Second year went to breckenridge and started conquering some diamonds, and jibbing a little. This year we are headed to snowmass / aspen to try to do a little bit of everything. I'm hoping for some of the great pow we got in breckenridge, but kind of sad we won't get the night rides like we got in keystone. We are going the last week of feb/ first week of march.
Look forward to hearing from some others and having a great winter with tons of snow!!!
