does PK have any terrain open by Friday? If so I would consider going there instead of Holly it's about 20 minutes closer to my house.

@mojoman if you're just looking to ride the conditions at Holly are adequate and they have a few features set up in the little park near the lodge.

Pinery at PK looks like its open, so expect some jumps to be open. Prolly small, but none the less, jumps.

We have one left at DTS. You're talking about this right?

Dakine Mini Tune Kit 2010

It's 24.95

I'll be at DTS later this evening waxing my boards. Around 5:30pm

And thanks for the heads up on the DTS website. That thing is always funky :/

2 things...



1. What is the general rule of thumb regarding snowboard waist width and boot size? My GF is looking for a board and wants the k2 lunatique in size 151, but the waist width is like 23.8cm and she wears a size 10 in women's (which is 8.5 in mens). Is that too skinny for her?


2. I'm probably going to get some new bindings for christmas... but can't decide which ones I want. I like the Rome Targas but I'm also interested in the K2 cinch style bindings. No experience with either one... but looking for some opinions.

Well, in mens, a size 9-10 requires around 25cm at the waist so she's good.

Remember, the board is actually a little wider at the binding insert points where her boots will lie. Her angles will also affect this. So even if the board was a little narrow (which that particular one isn't), a ducked stance would resolve the issue.

She's good to go with that board.

For Michigan riding, easy in/out bindings are awesome. I have the 2010 Flow NXT-FSE and looooove them. I bought it mainly for the comfort though. Most comfy pair of bindings EVA! But if you like the response of traditional straps, the Cinches are a good idea. You should also consider the K2 Autos. K2 Auto Ever would be nice on that Magic of yours.

Yea thats partly the reason I was looking at the "easy in/out" style bindings.

It's not 100% the same, but a good thing about the Targas is that they have the elastic bands that pull the straps out of your way once they are un-ratcheted down: Binding Tech | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2011


So you don't think the 23.8cm waist would be a problem with a size 8.5 boot? I found some type of "board size calculator" online and it was saying that for a 8.5 boot (in men's, which is 10 in women's) that the minimum waist should be 24.3cm. I know it's only 0.5cm difference (which is like 0.25") - but I don't want to buy her an expensive board to find out that she is dragging her toes or something.
