I tried the Billy Goat again and decided it was too wide. Turn initiation was just too slow. Went with the B Pro 155 split, used it twice so far but it's been fantastic on the spring corn! :thumbsup:

I actually demo'd a Jones Women's Solution and between the delam issues I've heard about and the poor demo experience I had, I'm not too interested. I also demo'd the 159 Billy Goat (solid) and it...

It's just an estimate. I figure 10 of that is from what I'm wearing, and the other 20 comes from my BC pack.

I weigh about 150, but all geared up I'm pushing 180. I'm a W7.5 shoe size, so I'm concerned about some boards being too wide.

I've been looking at the Goat split since I found it on sale over at...

Thanks! Conditions here are usually pretty similar. I was looking at two pretty different boards (NS SL, Billy Goat) and it sounds like I should pick the stiffer one over the damper one! The Billy...

Hi,

I'm planning to buy a board specifically for spring/summer conditions (to use from now until August), ungroomed backcountry riding in the PNW. I haven't decided yet on a split or not. Specific...

A lot of it is fit. Some boots have extra padding near the heel to try to hold it in place. If you still get heel lift, you can always add j-bars.

Yep, that's how people die in them. In-bound tree well deaths are much more common in-bounds than in the backcountry.

iirc, the best thing you can do if you get stuck in a tree well is to be calm,...

Any particular reason you don't want group lessons?

I love Lambics in an ice cream float. :) Lindeman's are a bit less alcoholic than I like (aka too sweet), but are still tasty.
