Thumbs up Early-season conditions

So, I'm all excited to get on my new Agent when it comes, but I was wondering something. I'm planning on maybe going to Okemo on Thanksgiving weekend to pick up my season pass and get in a little early-season action. That means it's gonna be mostly man-made (probably icy?) snow, and maybe patchy in some places. My question, then - is it a good idea to break out the new board, or bring my old junk board that I'm replacing? Don't wanna be damaging my baby... what do you think?

Make sure your board is waxed. That abrasive, icy crud always slowed my board down in Indy. It even made it stick sometimes, which was really bad. I don't think it will cause any real damage to the board itself, though. My Anthem lasted for 2 years with no damage on Indy crud.

Funny you should mention this i have had the same questions because Mt Hood Meadows is taking is sweet time getting snow it may open with a low base..

I will probably end up taking my new SL-R with bindings set up, and leave my old shitty LTD board in the car hidden. If i get out there and do a run and its just too rocky ill just go get my other board and swap the bindings onto it for the day

Actually, I was thinking the same thing. I'm going to be hitting Meadows first this year (new to Oregon, so I'm going everywhere I can). I might ride my tiny old Anthem that I rode in Indy if there isn't a torrential snow storm. Time will tell, I guess.
