Mt Bailey. YES!!!! hahhaa.. i love diamond lake lodge.. good place to stay and get wasted and ride sleds around.. we did cat trips 2 yrs in a row there and it was awesome!! killer crew and guides and a real free format for riding on Bailey with them.. there is tons of rad sledding around there too which we can plannin to hit now that we have sleds..
here's a video we did for them about 5 yrs ago.. kind of a early promo.

This being my first kick at it, I went with the Karakorams.

I really wanted a Never Summer, I figured I'd just get it without the Voile kit, and then get the Karakoram System. While Karakoram does seem a bit pricey, it's pretty close, because it basically comes with a DIY kit. Spark Blaze + Voile kit will still be ~460.

Bryce and Tyler have also been great to deal with. Kudos to them for going out on a limb and giving us options!

Once I have everything, I'll post up initial thoughts. It doesnt look like I'll get a tour (or much time on snow) until mid December... too much studying to do.


The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

Nothing wrong with Voile's time tested system!
