Well it looks like I will probably just grab a pair of those K2 uprise bindings. Seems like about what Im looking for.
Im actually going to have less sticks by the meet. Im getting the SL to reduce my different boards for different things quiver and try to prune a lot of it away.

Zach you fancy bindings are way to expensive for someone who has just pruned down their quiver to 5 boards. Definitely a better option for one of those poor people with only 1 deck. Plus they have no padding and are silly looking.

Zach, go respond to the dudes thread about your crazy $$$ bindings! Oh, and I would like to try them this year for a run or 2 if you don't mind! I can't spend that kind of coin without trying them first!

Those would fit in with those rocker bindings. I have been using softer bindings more lately and I like that better for the woods. I tend to stay where the turns are pretty tight so its not like I need a super stiff carving setup.

Unfortuanately work hasn't let me have the midweek days I got last year and Jay opened a little later than last year, and I spent 1 weekend home sick in bed. I would really like to have at least another 10 days on the snow but I'll bed Ive still made more pow turns than you.
I'm less than thrilled with working yesterday and today when Jay just got over 2'

You at least havent been here

That looks sweet as always!

Actually, WV has been insane so far this season. Many many pow turns. Been doing a bit of BC too since I bought snowshoes. Runs just are not as long as VT. Trees are tighter tho!

I dont know if its tighter than that was. That is the woods kind of between everglade and staircase. It was so low I couldnt stand all the way up and so tight I was always holding onto a tree and sliding the board side to side to clear trees. All while very very steep. It did however eventually open up into some pretty awesome turns but not for a while.

Also just got an email that my bindings just shipped. Pretty quick service for the free economy shipping.
Good job snowboards.net

Is Big Jay rideable yet? I read something on the Jay site about it being closed? I sure hope not, or maybe not enough snow yet.
