Now I know what all the fuss is about here at Boyne Highlands. Had a lot of fun today especially since we got about 4" of snow today.

Cannot wait for this fucking weekend to get here!

So I'm still researching and looking at boards. Found an Arbor Roundhouse 163 CX for 420 bucks. Seems like a good board but in your guys' opinions would I be better off waiting on the NS Legacy (or Heritage)? I'm not sure what I've read is correct but it seems like the Arbor is probably more suited to powder, which is of course a rarity in Michigan. Help cause I'm ignorant on all of this...thanks!

Chomps has a Roundhouse, I'll be curious what he has to say. Remember though, Leo really recommended the 166 for your riding style.

They're getting an assload of snow before the weekend too, lucky jerk.

Well I found an Arbor in the 167 wide for 455 so that's an option as well. I'm still not bombing shit, but I want something that will help me get there.

Ha sorry about that dude. If it makes you feel any better about it I will probably re-aggravate my strained groin and will be limping all week next week.

haha, nah I'm just messing around. I'm desensitized to it and it really doesn't even bother me. My wife is ditching me for Highlands this weekend too.

Took last weekend off to let it heal up a bit. Don't think it helped, should have just ridden on it anyways.

I'll be interested to see what Leo and even Chomps have to say about the board thing. Or anyone else that wants to chime in for that matter...

Wish I could go up north this weekend :/

On another note, I'm quite hesitant to release an initial review on NS Evo...

What you guys think? Do eet or wait it out?
