But I just won an auction for a 160 nitro panterA for 1000¥ lol
You sold 5 burton decks in 1 year?

What do you grow them or something?

Pantera looks sweet.

all in the name of finding that elusive 'perfect' quiver. Pretty close to it now though

Hey dreampow, apparently there was a slide there on monday with someone gettng seriously injured. You probably havent been up in a couple of weeks, but any info on it? Where did it happen? Details are super vague over at snowjapan. Asked for more info but forums went down and im itching to find out. It just says "a sidecountry area".

when i was getting tended to by patrol, I didn't hear anything about a slide, just that someone hit a tree and broke at least one leg (I think it was a boarder).

current quiver:
resort: 152 burton root
deep pow/bc/gnar: 163 rossignol experience
split: 162 k2 panoramic

the experience isn't so 'fun/surfy' in pow but nothing can beat it in critical terrain.

Heres the report from tuesday:

Quote:
Wow, what a day it was yesterday!

We had some of the deepest powder of the season as heavy snowfalls continued all day. Even with the holiday crowds (which thinned out in the afternoon) it was still possible to find fresh tracks through the trees all day. Areas which were tracked in the morning quickly filled in with fresh snow and within hours up for grabs again. It’s safe to say that yesterday was one of the best days of the season so far.

Yesterday also saw some of the most unstable conditions this year, with slides occurring on even more moderate slopes. Many areas were simply too dangerous too ski, even with the necessary gear and experience, especially the backcountry. One skier broke an avalanche on a side country run which resulted in serious injuries. It is better to avoid certain areas on days like yesterday and live to ski another day.

Today it looks like the snow clouds have moved on for the time being at least. Snow continued well after last lifts yesterday adding 15cm of cover; there should be more than a few very deep fresh tracks on offer today.

The total snowfall from this storm is now 80cm and avalanche conditions remain very high. Long weekend crowds moved on yesterday afternoon so the mountain will feel very quite indeed.

I will check with my local buddy who rides pretty much every day up there,

broken legs heal at least.

Nice quiver supra, your going to sell the Nitro as well?

I hear the experience is super stiff?

Obviously good for technical lines and steeps.

Yep Ippy, that would have been me.

@dreampow. the nitro is a board I had lusted after years ago so it will be nice to try it out. At best it will be a rock board, but who knows? a few years ago I picked up an 01 Burton BMC which was so good that I rode it more than my custom x!

People say the Experience is super stiff, but I don't find it to be so. It's got a huge nose rocker which is soft. That and the tail rocker means that it rides handles like a 56. The board is suuuuuper damp which is great for going fast, but not so good in pow
