Unconfirmed yet, but I may be out there February 27 for a few days.

@Turbospartan it is official now, I will be arriving in Vail on Wednesday night, February 27. Will be there to nominally to cover the Burton US Open, but will also hopefully be riding some sweet sweet powdah. If you're around, let me know!

GREAT snow we've got coming down here today. I almost called in for a vacation day on my drive in. Was thinking of going to Cannonsburg or something. But, oh well I'm at work nonetheless...blah.

I pulled the trigger on the Flow NX2-RS's. Hope they work out for me. My buddy just bought the SE's and after a couple of hours of getting dialed in he loves them. I got them through Dogfunk so if they don't work out I can always send them back. They did a nice price match for me too, so I got them brand new for a bit over two bills.

I'm all about flows. Watch/read stuff online how to set them up properly. Getting your foot in and out dry is harder than when you are on the hill with wet snow.

Oh, and I would recommend once you get them dialed in, mark with sharpie or something else on the strap where you have the ratchets. Makes setting them back up easier if you have to undo the straps for some reason.

Thanks for those tips. I've watched the videos and researched the hell out of this (like I do) before buying so I'm confident that they'll work out great on my new board. Will be at Bittersweet Sunday looks like...

That is exactly what I did with my Flows.

I feel so distracted, like this may not be the most productive day for me....

haha, just go bro. I actually wouldn't have even come in today. I'd be roughly 20 minutes from Highlands by now.
