We had record snowfall in the Canadian Rockies last year. Sunshine opens on November 7th. I plan on being there. If I turn my 2012 libtech into a rock board....so be it! I need vertical and I need it badly. These late night trips to the snowboards shops with my kid are hard on the pocket book. Watched some good snowboard vid with my bud on the weekend. Lots of fun. 1 more month.
