We utilize personal preference as we have this thing that evidently can't be learned by a troglodyte such as yourself called logical deduction.

"Troglodyte" I don't know where you come up with this shit but you sure do have a steady arsenal ready at all times.

A smug clouds my computer screen every time I read your pretentious posts.

what do you mean early? Its October...this is early?

Per the post about tuning. I grew up on the ice coast and rode a lot of park and pipe. park board was de-tuned. Pipe board had decent edges.

Right now, out here its a bit icy so if you want to carve you'll need an edge. Later on in the season you'll have to tune to the snow. If I'm in the park I'll grab my park board or de-tune the edges for rails and boxes. Its really going to come down to the type of riding and when/where you are doing it. The conditions at Vail are going to be different (more than likely) than say the conditions at Winter Park.

So...everyone was sort of on point with their answer. CO people tune according the elements, just like everyone back east. There isnt a one size fits all, thats why people have a handful of boards.

Nope. You have to wait.

Early as in before their expected start date. Sorry I'm new to Colorado boarding and a local shop employee said that I don't need an edge at all since there's no ice. I plan on just taking my file/stone with me the first couple times to figure out a good balance but I was just curious to see other opinions.
Awesome, thanks for the answer. I plan on getting a backcountry/freeride board so I can make my Riot an only park board. I'm so pumped to start riding out here!

Thanks again man.

Most of the season theres enough snow that you don't need much of an edge, but this preseason stuff is 'skied off' with so many people out there it gets icy.

I usually carry a stone with me for a quick tune de-tune.

A-bay was great yesterday, sunny, quick lines, snow was decent. Copper and Keystone are opening in a week too. Soon enough my man.....soon enough.

They are ignorant if you think there is no ice. I love having an edge through early jan and in early morning in spring

I see the short bus is what takes you to the mountains which might be why you can't comprehend this "personal preference" thing we keep mentioning. Obviously you don't snowboard.

We don't have ice here as they utilize radiant flooring under the snow to keep it at a nice 36 degrees every day. Ever notice how every single mountain has one big peak? Yeah that's where they keep their nuclear boiler that provides all the steam for this. It's also where they store the moguls in the summer and is at an elevation where the deer magically turn to elk. As far as opening early, they never actually close but the marketing is so good it convinces everyone in the front range they are closed, the real locals ride 365 days a year. Hell July 4th was one of the most epic powder days EVER! Oh and chairlifts have become obsolete we ride endangered Lynx to the top of the mountains and attach GoPro's to the endanger Colorado Condor to film us for our Epic Mix!

Logic look it up!

I squashed my Lynx. I have to ride up on a moose, the mountain lion was too frisky and the moose was my next logical choice. I could not find a condor either. Where the fuck are they.... I use either the family of golden eagles or the one bald eagle when he is around.
