The fish will have more float than the cuda or LL, but be worse than both on groomed slopes. It's really most at home on bottomless powder day.

Just took my 159 landlord out for the first day at Big Sky. Thin on coverage, so mostly groomers and chopped up soft snow from earlier in the week.

5'7" 180lbs, I had a 2010 C-X and now have a 2011 C-X, both 157.

I really like it, but it can be a bit unforgiving in bumped-up or thicker snow. I've ridden quite a bit of powder on them . . ....

IMHO, if you are riding middle of the road gear, ($400 board, $200 bindings, $200 boots) then there are probably many other brands that have advantages over Burton. Their low to mid-grade stuff is...

Wife had the same problem, now 100% solved.

Insoles alone will not solve your problem. My wife has the same issue. We tried on 12-15 different boots, and all of them made her foot go numb within a minute.

Interesting . . . I have the same boots and the same pain. I already have custom molded footbeds. However, once my boots broke in, they were a bit too big, so this year I picked up a pair of 2010...

I used to get severe calf cramping when I would ride, regardless of stretching or hydration. I had a couple issues:

As I said in my previous post, I CAN do something about it. I still have plenty of time to change my plans with nothing more than a $100 plane ticket fee. That's what I'm trying to decide on. I'd...

Sounds like exactly what I was afraid of. Damn. Based on the weather reports, I'm guessing it's a similar situation at all the Northern UT resorts.

Anyone done the drive up to Grand Targhee?
