i keep my phone in my backpack, and my ipod classic in a plastic bag in the pocket on the inside of my jacket closest to my chest. Very rarely do i fall onto my chest, so im not too worried about breaking it. I have found a couple cell phones while snowboarding, i usually just turn them into ski patrol.

Sorry, I can't let this one go. If you find a phone, or whatever, you should return it. It's the right thing to do whether you're mormon, jew, christian, atheist, black, mexican, white, brown, gay, straight, hermaphrodite, felonist, porn addict, or snowboard fiend. Don't give me this, 'I'm mormon I don't have to be perfect' crap. Return the phone. If you think you're exempt from following simple rules of your religion, especially bragging about it, maybe you should find a different set of beliefs and not follow what mommy and daddy make you do. Sorry for the rant, I'm sure you're a nice guy.

BTW, I used to ride kelley canyon all the time. That place is the sh!t for cheap night boarding.

I work retail and people leave their cellphones all the time, i do exactly what you did.

i ride with ipod and cell phone and sometimes my digital camera, never had any problems. Biggest worry is losing it.

I ride with my phone, but it's a Boulder and supposed to be impact resistant and water resistant. It better be because it sucks in every other way.

well see, on the one hand, they suck, and theyre gonna hold me back, which means i'll probably be sitting around a lot and not falling too much.

but then on the other hand, i might "accidentally" get separated and then i'll be itchin for some hard trails or maybe even the park before i get back in touch with them. but in order to get back in touch with them, i'd need my phone...

yea.. also those handheld walkie talkies work well.. not ur g.i. goe walkie talkies.. i am talking about the bad mutha fuka walkie talkies hahaha. the ones for like $25-50 might be pricey but its cheaper than a new $400 cell phone. also if u play ur cards right.. u can buy em from bestbuy and return them within the 30 day return policy. haha i used to work for bestbuy and i promise you.. nobody gives a fuck if u return that shit on the 29th day with snow inside them.
