Props killclimbz. I meant no offense by my critique of the soundtrack, I just prefer edgier music that gets me excited about riding. For example, some instrumental Heavy riff laden guitar dittys... Satriani, Vai, Hoey. I don't ride and listen to tunes. I love the sound of my board moving through and over the snow and I consider it invaluable to my riding and sensing snow conditions... part of my stoke for the sport.
I admire your BC credo and I think all the park rats and others who have never had a BC experience could learn alot from having one, and open up a whole new realm of enjoying the sport in ways they could never have imagined.
Earning your turns will improve your riding and it goes without saying your fitness level as well.
I have only used my splitboard twice in The Eagle cap wilderness located in the Wallowa mtn. range in eastern Oregon.
The driest snow in these here parts. Epic, legendary experience. I want more.
