I hate you :laugh: I am very jealous though. Looks like a sweet ride.

Very nice, Venture makes some great product. I was checking those out at SIA and it looks like a sick pow stick. Are you going Sparks with it, slider plates, or Karakorum?

Hopefully have my Karakoram bindings soon

Be sure to post up a review of the Karakorums. I'd like to get my hands on the set up, but I doubt I'll do it this year. Maybe I'll get a chance to demo of them. They look very promising. The mechanical route was tried before with Burton and was a failure. The elegance of the Voile design has always been it's simplicity. Yet, it really does look like the Karakorum guys have addressed the problems that the Burton system had. Their system actually looks quite simple and has some good looking advantages. Wear and tear look to be the big questions with it, not performance.

Which binding system is the way to go? I just assemed Sparks since they seem to have a great following and appear fairly durable.

You can demo mine cause Ill definitely be doing some CO trips this year :thumbsup:

Sweet! We'll definitely have to do some tours at the some of the Front Range spots. Berthoud is a mecca for very good reasons. Maybe a mini meet would be in order?

Very Very nice board. I love my Euphoria split. It even gets used for lift access stuff a lot because it is just such an amazing board for the trees and the fluff. I think I might get a storm this year but Im not sure if I want it solid or split. I cant help but think that if I had a storm and euphoria split that I would never ride any of my solid boards ever again and a split is mighty spendy to stand in a lift line with.
