I've been snowboarding for several years but my level of progression has been stagnant for some time (lost interest, different crew, etc.). Well I'm back! I've set some realistic goals and having a blast again. At the moment I'm trying to learn to boardslide after having become comfortable with 50/50's on the box last season. I use to cruise the resort, just hauling ass, carving and spraying snow but have recently taken an interest in the park. I love learning new things. I'm a huge fan of Torstein Horgmo and Travis Rice! "The Art of Flight" is my favorite film with "Fourth Phase" coming in a close second. I ride a 2016 Lib Tech T Rice Pro 155, Union Atlas bindings and DC Torstein boots. I've joined to get back into the community and get my stoke on

Hi, I started "snowboarding" 5 years ago when I married. My spouse is skiing and don't wanted keep him at home just because I always hated cold weather and snow.
So here we are now, last April I bought a season pass just to get to the snow as often we can And in the last season I bought my first snowboard.
I used the quote marks in my first sentence because in the first years, I literally did nothing snowboarding, just sitting in the snow, or facing up the hill did falling leafs. I am not a super fast learner, for sure. I took couple of lessons, occasionally and I always improved something. I just want to learn always something new and enjoy to be out there. My wish is to learn in the future that 360 degree rotating
I have terrible fear of heights so unfortunately we are going only to ski area where there is a gondola or aerial tramway (the closed cabin) that go to some station where there is a green trail down and long enough for me to enjoy. Northstar, Keystone are my favorites and in this year I hope I can try the Vail where I see in the trail map a gondola with some longer green run down. I also like the Heavenly (good hotels nearby). I love the locals but they never have gondola so I have to walk up the hill
Used to snowboard in Austria and in CO, CA and NV.

Matt here, from NYC / NJ. Been snowboarding forever... get out as often as I can... ride all the local hills (NJ, PA, NY, VT, etc..), and I get out on a few larger trips every season.
Pretty psyched to find this site.. hoping to use it as a resource for travel, gear, etc.. as well as offer any of my own advice from time to time ;-)
I have a few boards...
- Venture Paragon (just picked up this season - LOVE this board!!)
- Venture Odin
- Venture Kevin Jones pro-model
- Capital BSOD
I usually ride Union Atlas bindings (I also have an older pair of Union Asadachi's as well)... with Salomon Synapse boots.
