How overweight are we?

I'm not gonna lie, I'd love to lose 20 lbs... Just wanted to see if we adrenaline sports junkies've been hitting the gym enough in the off-season.

If you're right on the bubble, pick whichever ya feel is right.

that's average? shit...

6'2" and ~260 (big boned I swear! lol)

how much does weight effect riding anyway? (assuming good physical ability) I mean, I know it will change the board you ride, but will being a big guy just outright screw you even if you have good stamina?

Last doctor I talked to told me I'm underweight for my size and I've been accused of being borderline anorexic. I'm pretty sure after the last few days of pow shredding I've lost some weight.

LOL, well the one person that said yes is me. I was around 190-195 when I was riding a lot more having season passes for 2 years and a house near the mountain 10 years ago. Unfortunately career choices and injuries slowed down my riding days. Even then I would've been considered overweight based on those silly medical charts which doesn't account your body type.

So right now I'm about 5'8 1/2 and 235. I'd be happy to be around 225 by the end of the riding season and hopefully just under 200 for next season. My knees will thank me.

Haha, well it all depends on your muscle mass, age and general body type.
I'm prettysure anyways. Some one correct me if I'm wrong.

5'7.5" and 175lbs. I'd like to get down to 155-160 and then bulk up my upper body until I'm 165-170. That is probably a pipe dream though. A wrist that dislocates trying to bicep curl 10 pounds doesn't help.

  1. If the chairlift breaks down and they have to rope you down, you end up on YouTube guaranteed
  2. You cause a panic as you approach the lunch line
  3. If you collide with a skier you win
