2012/2013 Preseason Stoke Thread

I dunno about the rest of you guys, but I'm really starting to get anxious for this season to get here. So where's everyone planning on riding? I decided against a season pass this year as I'm planning on spending around half my days splitboarding instead of resort riding. Plus, I have more fun chasing the snow and riding as many places as I can. Taking my first trip to Silverton and maybe Revy this year too.

Ok guys and gals, STOKE AWAY!

I start to get stoked when the first snow falls on Mt Seymour. I really need for it to be a good snow season this year. Last year really kind of bummed me out.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

No season pass for me either, only a pass that allows me a discount for daily lift tickets. The hills here are too small for me to dedicate to 1 hill for riding all season. Plus, I'm a weekend warrior (or call-in-sick-to work-warrior) anyway.

I have a week trip planned for Jackson Hole in mid-January which I'm absolutely stoked for.

Snow forecasted Thursday and Friday! It's October which means I could potentially get to ride this month(white ribbon of death but it's still riding)

My goal last year was 50 days and I got it. My goal this year is 100 days and I'm ready. I could have done 100 last year without my leg break.

Our boards have been waxed and ready for a month. My plan is to do a weekend drive up to Jackson, a few days in Tahoe, at least 4-5 days in wolf creek.... Split the other 90 between breck, vail, keystone, abasin and the beav..... Probably 60 in vail......

My son got 140 days at vail resorts last season with 20 at other mtns. He has been in training mode for 3 months and is up to 3 hours a day, 5 days a week of crossfit, trail running, yoga and other fitness shit. That doesn't include the sometimes 5 hours of mtn biking or hiking he does with my wife and I a couple days a week. I also try to do an hour of yoga about 4 days a week. my wife walks 8 miles on her round trip to work every day, 4 days a week.....

We are ready and waiting for wolf creeks opening day. We will be driving down for it again this year.....

I'm hoping we get snow in the next 14 days!!!

We had record snowfall in the Canadian Rockies last year. Sunshine opens on November 7th. I plan on being there. If I turn my 2012 libtech into a rock board....so be it! I need vertical and I need it badly. These late night trips to the snowboards shops with my kid are hard on the pocket book. Watched some good snowboard vid with my bud on the weekend. Lots of fun. 1 more month.
