stomp pads
 
which do you prefer- the rubber/foam pads or the aluminum tracs?

I guess if you feel like using them (I haven't since I learned to carve)then the silicone nipple style are invisible-ish and work well.

Stomp pads = training wheels for the retarded.

some people just like the extra stability for their back foot getting off the lift and while skating. My board always has a pretty good amount of snow on the top of it by the time I get down the mountain and back to the lift. It's easier to just plant my boot on the stomp pad against my binding then try and keep my foot from sliding off with the snow.

Those really cheap rubber/foam stomp pads are awesome.

The best thing to do is cut them up so you can cover more area.

the one I got came cut in three pieces, didn't have to worry about cutting it up evenly.

EDIT: It's the DAkine modular pad, in red/black plaid.

:rolleyes:

They come in quite handy when getting off the lifts and skating, like previously mentioned. I use a black rubber-type one, but I've heard the ones with metal sticking up work better.

I guess I'm into mischieviousness. We also aren't supposed to wear or display other resorts logos.;)

I have one that says: ASPEN SNOWMASS SKI & SNOWBOARD RENTALS (heck, it's always covered with snow anyway). I did it more as a joke and to see if my co-workers would notice. :laugh: I wasn't the one to show up a lineup wearing a shirt with VAIL printed on both sleeves.:dunno:

No stomp pad here. Planting your foot right next to the back binding works just as well.

I've never used a stomp pad. Throwing one footed 3's is way better when you don't know if your gonna blow your back foot off on landing! Although my board last season had a matte finish on it which was kinda helpful.
