Sorry for the confusion. Berthoud is a Colorado local. I was comparing it to what you have within two three hours of Victoria. Also, the town of Berthoud is far from Berthoud Pass where the riding is, lol.
But, unless I am mistaken, Victoria is close to Vancouver correct? Lot's of stuff within a couple of hours of Vancouver that is world class and insanely good. I know it's probably a bit of a distance to travel, but it should be within traveling distance. Lot's of people have to hop a plane to get to what you can probably drive too. The stuff I ride is at best 80 minutes away from me. Some stuff is over a 3 hour drive.
getting to vancouver is ridiculously expensive though, gotta pay a shit ton of money to get a car over by ferry these days, not to mention only being 17 doesn't help matters at all, I'm working on getting my own car right now but my parents won't let me take their car's up the mountain, I took my moms car once while she was away and she found out and I was grounded for a month :P
And its tougher to find some places to ride good backcountry on the island, our mountain has had so little snow this year it hurts, we finally got enough snow this week to open the lift that accesses the backside of the mountain with all the good runs, and the mountain closes in 20 days, it sucks.
Yeah its funny all my clothes match (green pants with rasta jacket or green pinstripe jacket) and my board matches (Blue legacy with blue Targas) but they dont really match with each other ahah. But your right a black based legacy is better than none! Those boards rip!
After seeing some cool sequences posted here I had to try it for myself. Borrowed a tripod from work and played around, using the free GIMP editor and a tutorial found on the net. I think they turned out okay for a first attempt - still working on it though. These are taken from a little spot we built just behind a few hotels in a clearing.
Me with a BS 360 attempt that turned out more like 270. I found it funny that you can't see my board in any of the pics, just snow...

These next two turned out much better, as I had a more solid place to mount the tripod, and am getting better at the layer mask stuff.
This little wooden construction sign provided us with hours of fun. It's so damn easy to set up too, we were moving it around to use it as a pole jam and jump over stuff.
