Mid/Upper 250s to low 260s for your size. I'm 5'10" 185lbs with 11.5 boots and have a 258cm waist width and I feel its just about right. I wouldn't go too much bigger though, it would feel too wide.

Yes, for the day trips. I'm saying for multi-day or weekend trips. Once things go overnight, they decide to charge you much more. It's probably because they need to compensate the driver a full...

Best way to be honest is to find 2 or 3 friends who snowboard and drive up with someone's car. It's so much cheaper, but someone has to be willing to drive.

Most bus trips are for the day only and are run from ski shops. They usually don't do the whole weekend unless you're taking another independent bus service.

Saw some pictures of friends who took a ride to Windham today. It doesn't look too promising, the rain destroyed the snow. Anything off the direct trail is mud. I hope they get some good snow...

I don't see any big difference. A lot of the time they just change the looks slightly, or come up with some ridiculous name for their "technology" that is only an extra bit of foam. If you don't...

Here you go. Not a huge difference, but choose based on the light conditions you ride in most frequently.

Tell her to sit this one out if she can't do any tricks. I'd find it a waste of time to be honest when you could be working to get her better. Instead, go to the competition yourself and watch the...

If it's cracked clean through to the other side, even if you use some epoxy it'll be prone to crack again with any good amount of force on it. You might be able to get some use, but I don't think...

I'm the same size as you. As far as length goes, stick to roughly 155cm-160cm. Lower range for park, higher for outside the park. For waist width, try to stay in the low to mid 250s (mm), but...

If you have a student ID or a friend does and you look young enough the lift tickets are $40 at the ticket booth. Not sure about weekends though, there may only be some discount.

I'd probably wait another 2 weeks or so if you really want to. They're just opening more trails this week, but still they're at less than 25%. And anything that is open is probably covered near the...
