Whistler used to have one not sure if they still do it's a dying segment of snowboarding no reason to invest in it.

I highly doubt its a dying segment. It's an intense segment (plus now an Olympic / x-games sport), it's just not say popular against pipe, salom...etc. But cross is by far awesome. I'm not trying to convert you nor change your mind, but just saying...I love it.

But speaking about whistler, ill check it out. thanks

I don't have to doubt that it's dying I sold boards for years, in the last decade I've had maybe 3 people ask me. It's not popular and contrary to what mainstream America tells you it won't ever be. The only time we have a BX course is when there's a contest at Copper and even then it's shoved so far off in the back end where no one cares.

i sense a disturbance in the force...i would suggest lay off the testosterone pills a little, but yeah, ill be nice and say you're probably right Regardless I still hit the slopes even w/o BC, but I'm interested in BC, so I will invest my time in getting all the information I can get around my mountains, but thanks for your opinions

The fact that you have to ask about where a BX course is in your area should tip you off that BA is spot on. I think it'll probably hang around, they still have snowboard slalom for fuck's sake. It's seen it's hey day though. Not very many places are going to invest any money into BX courses.

That's because I'm still new to the sport, and had nothing to do w/ BX courses until wanting to know now.

I understand a BX course is a pain in the ass, probably why it's probably dying, but doesnt mean someone should tell me to not look into it or check it out if it's still available at places, who knows, It could be a huge impact year for BX, never know.

You should consider dual boarding with some BonHiver bindings so you can do flip tricks.

It doesn't mean they shouldn't either. You put this out in a public forum. You have no control on where the thread goes, nor the responses you get.

This upcoming season is not going to change it's reality, next year isn't looking good either...
