So when I seen this pop up, I figured you were a prime candidate for this sucker.
I don't think you could find a more suitable board for where you live & ride
?

Burton Fish barely used

This would be money well spent I believe. I'm sure your daughter would love to ride this as well.
For $200 bucks you could ride it all year & still sell it for $200. It shouldn't get to beat up, you'd only bring it out on the deep days.

You could probably find someone up here to buy it for you & bring it down when they come to Baker.

Thanks, but already have a Option northshore 162, charlie slasher 164 and now a 159 billy goat...so have the poo base covered. A few years ago rode a malolo (idk about how it compares to a fish) but wasn't that big of fan

Triple8Sol My buddy went opening day. Heard it was amazing. I'm hoping to hit up Baker this upcoming weekend!

wrathfuldeity Its decent...but until they hit 100" base, then its good to go. They opened pan yesterday thurs; wed...chute was closed and looked sketchy...doable but has some holes, gabl's closed under 5...the top looks good but bottom not so much, trees could use some more....the higher stuff was better. I was surprised how good it was since they said it was thin. I had a fine day given just blowing off the cobwebs. I might head up tomorrow...Sunday and try skinning around abit.

DrnknZag How's the coverage up at Baker?

I just realized the only bindings I have won't mount on my shit stick. The new Ride bindings with the 'mini disks' won't mount to the Burton 3-hole pattern. Don't really wanna ride the new Berzerker in the low coverage, I guess I shouldn't have sold my old Deltas.....

wrathfuldeity I sucked yesterday...only brought the 155 groomer and failed to also bring the goat, my legs got wasted fast and poor choice of lines...waist deep and building ledges to stand on to get going. However, Bakes was good, cooler good poo, snowed 11" while there and puking at times, not many folks and very chill, all lifts running....fun opening and much better than I expected. Though on the ride home a 4-5 car pile up and sitting for 2 hours about 5 miles up from Glacier. I didn't go today but the kid and her crew headed up...it should be good with better visibility and probably low crowds.
Happy Turkey Day

Donutz Thanks Wrath. Spoke with wifey last night and she wants us to go to Whistler again, so I guess this is out. But we will be coming down to Baker this year, because we have friends who swear by it (not AT it!).

And it's on my bucket list for this year.

Donutz, we live about an hour away from there.

It's just like our mtns, only slightly better, higher, colder.
Hey, TT, we live within easy driving distance of Whistler, the North Shore Mountains, and Manning Park (just to name a few -- we ARE lucky aren't we?) and their seasons are noticeably different. Not to mention that altitude has some effect.

Anyway, I've finally applied for my replacement birth certificate, which I need in order to get a new passport, so I may actually be able to get across the border this year.
