Yea, 3 was really dramatic and I could feel it. I felt a little off all day the first morning I rode them and wasn't quite sure why, then I looked and noticed something written somewhere on the foot...

Honestly not a big canting fan. I was on holiday and couldn't bring my own setup, so I rented some Nitro Teams for a couple days. 3 degree cant pads. Seemed a little excessive, although I think I was...

Think that's a little extreme. For someone with one day and no local guidance (like OP), definitely don't go to Heavenly. But I imagine locals and devoted weekend warriors can find fun spots. And...

Late, but I hope you had fun. I was at Heavenly on Sunday for the first time in years. Only rode for a hour and stayed on the California side but I had some fun. Wide open pistes, no crowds (Super...

Carry them on. You can always buy new ones and bill the airline for it (https://www.reddit.com/r/LifeProTips/comments/3hurbp/lpt_if_your_bag_gets_lost_when_flying_on_most/), but then you have to deal...

Go to Northstar. Terrain is quite mellow for the most part, but it'll suit an intermediate quite nicely. Shouldn't be terribly crowded on a random Thursday either.

I'm riding most days in Now Drives without highbacks. I find I like it a lot better. I maybe feel a touch less aggressive on heelside carves (rode highbacks for the first time this season last week...

I'm the exact opposite. I've had a pair of used skis floating around at home for 2+ years, it's just hard to find right day for it. I only get so many days on the mountain, if snow sucks I don't want...

Dave,

Any thoughts on St. Anton? I'm flying into Frankfurt and St. Anton seems like the nearest epic option. Was considering taking a flight to Geneva and getting to Chamonix, but that's...

Interesting to see people calling them "stiff". I thought they were kind of mushy compared to other insoles I've used. Great shock absorption but my feel on edge went down (in my head at least). But...

Reading over your responses, I'd recommend nailing Kirkwood over and over unless it hasn't snowed. It's close enough and has fabulous terrain. Enough you won't get bored riding multiple days.

Central Europe, late-January 2015

I was able to finagle a 5 day layover in Europe during work travel, 1/26 to 1/31. I'd like to stop over somewhere for a few days to slide snow and take in some local culture.

Based on conditions,...

I'm planning a similar trip. I'd look into Austria, if nothing else because it's in the Euro zone. Switzerland is relatively expensive in the best of times, but the Euro is stupid cheap relative to...

I was probably 210 lbs at the time. It was a rental so it was a 2015 model, nothing that should be redesigned. Don't know what it is, ridden boards that were longer, stiffer, whatever, I just didn't...

Word of warning: demoed a 162 Snow Trooper earlier this year and hated it. Felt like a plank. Really surprised since I rode a 158 SL for years and have ridden boards as long as 164 everyday without...

No.

Also don't feel like being able to ride a Custom X is the pinnacle of riding or anything. I've been riding 10 years or so and don't really like the Custom X. Too stiff for my preferences, at...
