I ride 10.5 Imperials with size Lrg Drives. Definitely don't wish I went down to M's (and I ride size M Burtons).

I've only ridden my 2015 Drives maybe 10 days, but no issues with the ratchets. They do their job and I haven't noticed them, which is about as good as you can ask for.

I wouldn't call the West stiff at all. Above average for sure. But it's a pretty mellow ride to me. Now that I've broken mine in after 10 days or so, I'd call it a 6.

After a couple not-that-bad-but-could-have-been-much-worse falls yesterday, I think I either need to suck it up with my back protector or pick up one that doesn't heat me up so much. Neither fall was...

You 100% should be in a medium Burton in a 10.5. Especially a Burton Imperial, which has shrinkage down to full foot size smaller. Burton's binding size chart is 10+, but that's to accommodate...

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...

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.

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,...
