Bearded Nate Cheers for the link Lamps, I'd already seen your awesome recommendations, and have too printed em out!

I'm more of an advanced intermediate than the guys who started that thread - defo like my reds and blacks, so any other advice on some more challenging runs would be ace. Be good to push the soon to be hubby, to do more as well.

Sweet - I'll have a look into them, at the mo thinking of going through Summit as they have GT Machetes in 160 and 161W. I've sent em an email to check on which bindings they do tho.

neachdainn Yesterday was pretty much all time... Got crusty today, but that's ok, cause my legs are toast!

Bearded Nate Yeah, i've been watching the weather/snow reports since the beginning of the year, and keep seeing more and more dumps! Cant wait!!

Rance P Just got back from Whistler 2 days ago and there is plenty of snow up there..knee deep in some spots. My boyz were saying this is the best its been all season. It was my first time up there and that place is a workout on the legs. Have fun!

Bearded Nate We're coming laaate season, so hoping the snow holds. There for 10 days from the 31st March and then a long weekend in Vancouver.

Bearded Nate Thanks guys, and massive apologies for slow reply. Who'd've thought that planning a wedding would be so time consuming!

neachdainn congrats!

afaik, you can get some decent gear from spicy. looks like they have k2 turbo dreams in your size - about $150 for the week. looks about the same at affinity, or through whistler (burton).

alternatively, you can also get gear in van or squamish - might be cheaper, and maybe more selection... urban alpine is a place that comes to mind.

let me know when you're up - if the timing is right, i might be able to show you around or at least give you some tips.
