Cool, thanks.

Can't wait for the snow to fall so I can test out my gun.

If I do not like it, I will ride it through this season and buy an Antler next year. But it won't be too bad, just heard some stuff about Flying V

There might be more, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Lots of choices, this is actually a pretty rad area in terms of proximity to (small) hills.

zpepp I'm 18, live on the central coast of California. I used to snowboard a couple times each year but I played high school basketball so I wasn't able to go the last 2 years. Now that I'm in college I want to start going more often and am looking to get back into it.

Winter_Lion In 33 years old living in Los Angeles, ca.
My preferred snow resort is Mountain High. I'm a beginner I've only been riding now for 3 seasons. I normally rent a 141 but I've bought some two used boards (Velocity 159 and a Burton 161) and bought brand new snow bindings and snow boots during Sports Chalets final clearance sale. I weight around 230, shoe size 8.5. I like to go at night way less people but the slopes get super icy.

Just wanted to introduce myself to the community and be a more active part of it from now on.

I love sports in general and practice or try all I have ocassion to. Surf, rock climbing and MTB are some examples of what I try to do in the "offseason".

happy to be around!
Welcome Amarillo! If you ever come to the Rockies need a Spanish Speaking Guide (for free of course) let me know and I'll be ahppy to show you around!

phillyphan Well, I have made some post and been around awhile but never posted in this thread. So I will make a post in it. I'm a 29 year old from Southern Illinois. Not anywhere near Chicago. Started snowboarding in Tahoe while on a family ski trip about 15 years ago. Someone had to be the black sheep in the family. Stopped shortly after that due to college. Just got back into boarding about three years ago and head out to Winter Park about once a month. Last year I got 17 days in. Which is good for living in IL. Looking to branch out a bit.
