I just paid for some new (used) Ride Delta MVMT bindings here on the forum, hope to get those soon so I can check 'em out, should be a bit more forgiving than the Cartels that I'm used to.

I keep looking at new boards even though I probably shouldn't buy one. Had my eye on the NS Heritage but not sure I want to drop that much loot on a board that none of my local shops even carry in stock. I've been eyeing some Bataleons from last year, there's a few floating around the net at pretty good prices, under $300 for new condition.

Yea, David and boardaddict always go during weekday nights. I go on weekend days. This year, I booked a trip to Tahoe Dec 12-18 though. Also, I have a baby now so I don't know how much Michigan shredding I'll get in this year. I'll definitely keep you guys posted to when I'm available to shred. Unless you want to hit up Northstar Tahoe with me

@Taowolf: Actually, you are probably a much better park rider than me. I'm a good rider, but noob in the park. If Tahoe as good powder when I'm there, I'm definitely going to chuck myself off of stuff though

lol noooo I suck! I'm just learning boxes this winter. And I can take 3-7 foot jumps with some comfort. Wait till you guys see the ramp I just built for my brothers and friends and I to use at the cottage this winter. I'll be posting pics probably later today.

I want in! I need to progress on my jumps and that looks to be a good way to do it. I was going to just shovel a bunch of snow in my local park to huck off of.

Heck yeah, we're all praying Michigan gets dumped on all winter!

The landing area still has a bit of slope before it bottoms out, hopefully we won't have to pull the ramp up any higher. Landing in the flat wouldn't be much fun haha.
