i dunno. i enjoy hitting the jibs and natural features with my friends. it's fun as hell bonking signs and snow blowers at will, maybe hitting a couple small kickers and riding a wall of natural snow, popping ollies at the incline to see who can ollie the highest and farthest, spotting a line through the trees and making your nervous way through trying not to hit each other or anything solid, and trying to butter down the mountain and failing miserably, getting to the bottom with huge smiles and high fives just to do it all over again, but hitting different things this time around... just all out having a damn good time not worrying about what everyone else is doing and just messing around with your friends.

that pretty much sums up snowboarding for me.

he means #3, I used to live in Calgary

@hotsauce, arent tricks and jibs and backcountry part of boarding? if you just wanna go fast ur missing a pretty big part of it...

edit:
#5 seems good too, if it is a cargo helicopter able to carry 12 tons of supplies I dont think any of us get enough of those (except in Iraq) and they dont have snowboards there either. they DO have sandboards tho,

definitely makes the day that much better having a couple beers and talking with everyone whom you meet and friends. My first time on a board and even on skis was last saturday, and i must say there's nothing like carving up a mountain and falling and getting back up to progress further and quicker the next time. Theres no reason to get shitfaced going out to a bar. Everyone knows there limit just the same as when there riding. If beer tastes good to you, and your thirsty (especially with all the brewerys around the resorts) then have a beer. I would'nt say they go hand in hand. But it's there, so why not relax and enjoy.

You are wise my brother. To each his own, just don't tread on me or my peeps. Enjoy the spice of life...in moderation of course.

Are those Chinooks or Coho? According to Wikipedia they are both in all the Great Lakes.
