in my opinion days on snow/season is the only reason to justify expenditure unless you are wealthy, which most of us and myself, are not.
i rode 50 days last year, bought shit i dont like, picked up a new proto today (576 with tax jesus h christ), and plan to get new bindings in the next couple weeks. the only way i justify it is that my goal is to get over 100 days this year, my gear WILL get its moneys worth.
i saw someone on a proto on friday who didnt know how to ride AT ALL. that shit makes me laugh, but they are probably rich and someone cool from this board will probably benefit on ebay when that chode realizes they only went 3 times this year.
working at winter park? fucking go for it man! sometimes i have to do resi hits on my bowl and drink cheap beer for a week, but i rode my new proto today and it gave me huge gay (like cocksucking gay) smiles
