It failed because you don't know how to get off a chairlift. Nice...

Not exactly sure how, when it broke. I was only on blue and green runs all day, and at the end of the day it was broken. So, just taking guesses here. The little lift incident seems a good guess, perhaps the best guess, but just a guess. I know...You'd think after 24 years of boarding (with healthy absence in the middle) I'd know how to get off a chairlift.

SL, I was surprised how much Meadows had on the ground. Obviously, very early season conditions, but not bad at all. Bummer the freezing level seems to be heading up over the next few days.

Ha ha! That's just not going to happen. Skied until I bought a K2 Gyrator with Sims bindings at Rim Rock Mall in Billings, MT in 1988. Went to Bridger Bowl the following day and right up their highest run (used to have to take two lifts to get up there). Spent most of that day getting down (a few feet-catch an edge, a few feet and catch an edge). Hated boarding and if I was not already the less-than-proud owner of a board, that might have been the end of it. The next morning, we were greeted with a lot of fresh pow. Skied in the AM and decided to give the board another try after lunch. First run in the pow and it clicked and I never skied again. Seriously, never once skied after I figured out how to board. Sold all my ski gear off and never looked back.


Well, anyway, found my receipt for the bindings. We'll see if Burton sends me a new back or if I have to buy one. I do agree with SL that these are just too thin. I could probably make a low-rent repair to it if need be, but I'll wait until I hear back from The Big B.

I am liking this new Custom Flying V Wide. Whole lotta board. Although very limited use thus far, it's the first board I have really liked since my old Aggression 172. I have pretty much the same channel setup on my wakeboard and I do like that feature.
