Finally got out west to Whistler last year and demo'd a few Lib Techs and a Prior AMF.
And this year, I was in your territory pouts - one week trip that saw me riding Kicking Horse/Louise/Sunshine/Norquay.
What'd you think of the AMF? I was seriously considering getting a Mens Freeride... The GF got the Brandywine (chick version of the Freeride) and absolutely loves it. I'm a big fan of the R/C/R or just camber with a lifted nose myself.
What did you think of the Banff/BC stuff? In times with little snow it can be an icy ungroomed hell, but generally it's freakin' great here!!! Sure beats living in Hamilton and driving 3 hrs to Blue Mountain for a couple days...
