you're right, i should have introduced myself.

i'm 25. i'm a girl. i'm canadian.
i've been snowboarding for 14 years and traveled the continent to do it. i hope to expand that to world this year by going to european or south american mountains (anyone who's done both would love to hear your opinion). i've been working in the industry for 4.

burtonavenger/slyder thanks for your real answers. i do have answers to most of those questions.

i'm literally in the primary days of tossing the idea around and building my business plan. i realize that my biggest competitor will be the internet. i wanted to find out for myself, from real riders like yourselves, just how big an impact online retailing has had. not by way of a google search. through 79 completed surveys, i've found that 67% buy at least some of their hardgoods online.

my local shop helped shape my childhood. i wanna be part of saving independent, knowledgeable, brick and mortar shops.

i am doing more detailed research, but solely in my region.

thanks to those who filled out the survey.
