100-Day Point - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

100-Day Point

We hit the 100-day point on Thursday -- 100 days until snowboarding season, based on Dec 1st opening. That's always a milestone for me, even more than summer solstice. From here on, my whiteboard counter at work only has 2 digits.

It's also getting close to the time that the Boardroom will start stocking the 2013-14 gear. I'm going to be in there as early as possible, picking up the new Proto HD. I haven't quite decided whether or not I'll buy some new bindings for it. I have a brand-new set of 2012 Targas at home, and the Heritage currently has a set of 2011 Flow NXT-SEs. But I really want a set of the new Flows, and this year they will hopefully have worked out the bugs with the new design. Well, we'll see what they have when I'm there.

On another subject, Timmytard is pushing the Cypress passes again this year. However I've decided that the silver individual pass actually makes sense for me, since I intend to hit Cypress a fair bit this year. It's the only way I'm going to get past rank-beginner status in park. Sure as hell Seymour has proven that they aren't interested in supporting noobs in that area. And it's not like the limitations on the Silver pass are going to matter -- no damn way I'd be going near Cypress at those times anyway.

We're also seriously talking about a small SUV with 4wd or awd for this season -- the Versa is surprisingly good in the snow, but in the end it's a flatlander vehicle and has diddly in the way of cargo space. We'll be looking for something with a built-in roof rack as well.

And last item, I have to start getting serious about getting in shape now. Time's a-wasting.
