Swix Tuning Stands

I'm sure it won't end there.
Swix stuff is the shit. I have Burton ones right now, and my buddy brought his swix stuff up to Mammoth and it's so much better. They're just vises but I like the stand Swix has. Nice and easy to put away.

Ninja suit is semi-on sale at Seshday (but the Merino ones are still $80).

I've been thinking about South America in August one of these years too!!!

I'm good for bindings, boots and most other gear, but I seem to be going through boards like crazy lately. I'll likely buy another Virus Avalanche one of these days, possibly that Volkl Coal Race board, and save them for when I fully kill the current Virus.

My $40 firefly pants are holding up TOO good, so I'll invest $10 in them and get them hemmed properly.

Need to buy a few pairs of gloves, and figure out a way to make them last more than 10 days on the hill. The hardbooters like to coat them with Sikaflex urethane, I might have to try that!

My helmet's about 5 years old now, and has a few dings in it. Probably time to get a new one one of these days.

NEED A BOARD BAG. The one I've got is from the 90's and pretty much ripped apart at the seams returning from my Vancouver trip in Jan!

- Libtech Speedodeeps board looks tempting
- A new set of Now bindings, not sure which of the 3 models for next year, going to have to wait and see
- I have cold day mitts and warm day gloves but I need an in between pair of gloves maybe
- maybe another ninja suit
- a new board bag for sure
- maybe some snowshoes for hiking the slack country or that new MtnApproach kit looks tempting.

1.) Season Pass - had one this year and foolishly sold it thinking I wouldn't get enough local days to make it worth it among my out of state trips. I was wrong haha.

2.) Thinking about picking up the burton process. I like the custom as my first board, but i'm thinking a bit softer would be nice.

Tires for my car so I don't have to rely on the ski shuttle to get me there on snow days...
More days on the hills. I was a late starter this year and 8 days total is NOT enough. I'm not ready to start hiking season yet

Hello, my name is Donutz and I'm a gear whore.

Went to 4th and Burrard today... for those who know Vancouver, there's a Boardroom, Boardroom Clearance Centre, Billabong, Pacific Boarder, Comor Sports, and Showcase, all within spitting distance of each other.

So, I now have a new pair of Ride snowpants, Rome Targa bindings, and 32 Focus Boa boots.

[sigh] I am so weak...

(Just need the Drift Ghost helmetcam and the new Proto now)

Flabbergasted: Having an excess of flabbergas.

I got so much this year-

Boots - DC Status
Helmet - Smith Vantage
Bluetooth audio for helmet
SWIX tuning stands, 3 piece brush set
Diamond stones and adjustable angle holder
Top of the line Mt. Hardware Shell and two pairs of same pants
Merino wool base layer
Smith IO/x goggles with 3 lenses
Gloves that seem to be holding up (swix or sw=---- something I forget)
Socks x 2

Got some new Union Charger bindings but I don't think they're going to work for me, so I'll go back to Burton Diodes for now.

Gonna keep riding my Billy Goat. If I find a good deal I might try to drop a size from 162 to 159.

Buying a season pass for next year this week

The only other thing I want I can think of is a hot tub and -10 lbs. Helps tons on those four -five day trips.

Maybe a pow and/or split board. Otherwise hoping for good snowboard trips. Want to explore big sky, silverstar and whistler blackcomb next year.
Maybe heli boarding as well.
