Otherwise, I'm really hoping next year will be the year that I don't buy any new shit. I kinda went overboard this year... bought a new board last march, new boots & bindings in August, 2 new pairs of pants in February, new jacket in November-ish, new helmet in February, and two new boards this March.

I may be due for new goggles/lenses, and I'm going to try to warranty my boots since the heel is delaminating. Otherwise, if you see me talking about buying any new gear for next winter, kindly punch me in the dick.

I really need new goggles. I may also need a more insulated jacket for trips up North to Gore and Whitface. Otherwise I am good with my setup.

Generally I want to be in better shape next year. I jog but that's it. And getting back into boarding kinda took me by surprise. So I want to have an injury free off season with lots of core and leg work. And some High Intensity Interval Training (maybe boxing?) mixed in for stamina. There's nothing that feels quite as good as being in excellent shape.

I also want to progress back to where I was before I quit. I feel like I am getting there. I rode Kirkwood black diamonds in mogul-ly spring conditions last weekend. I just need to bring my speed up and work on popping and landings so I can go out with my brother next season (who is an excellent all mountain rider) and crush some steeps, glades and stashes. And not just keep up with him (like when we were kids and riding lessons consisted of 'keep riding or get ditched') but really have some quality time with him and his little girls.
We've always been close but our mom died unexpectedly of a heart attach last year and we've gotten closer since that experience. She would be happy we are close friends as adults. He's pretty happy I got back into riding so we both have someone to ride with!

That's my wish list. Great times and good riding with family.

To that guy asking if Burton Jackets are any good, my answer is yes. I had 3 of them and they were the jackets that did not rip up in the middle of the season. I owned other brands and they split apart in the middle of the season. All 3 of the Burton jackets were older. I have not bough any recent jackets in years. The last 2 were super cheap lucky scores at yard sales and thrift stores. I also had good luck with Burton snow pants. If a jacket lasts me more than a season, it's good. I have one with about 70 days on it and no seams have tore yet.

I don't really need anything. I picked up new boots, board, bindings, and late season pants.

What I'd like is a different story. I'd love to pick up a Salomon Sick Stick and then get a Never Summer Proto (or something similar like a Yes the Greats) for my all-mountain riding when the snow isn't deep. Then I'd love to buy some Flow NX2-SEs to pair with my Raiden Blackhawks.

That would give me a 2 deck quiver + an older camber I use as my rock board. So, I suppose this is my goal and if I manage to stay out west I'd like to add a split, but that investment is only worthwhile if I'm still living in the mountains in a couple years.

Just scored Flylow Quantum Jacket / Magnum BC pants on sale. So the outerware is all set.

The quiver is good. New boots waiting in the closet.

Picking up the Midweek pass next week.

On the wish list is two trips. 1st ;Never been west, gotta happen. 2nd; Back to Vermont. Did Killington and Sugarbush 3 weeks ago after the big dumps and had my very first knee deep powder experience. Now I know how addictions are started.

Welp, I either need new boots, or a whole lot of shoe goo. My DC's are officially done for. The toe and heel on my back foot are fully separated now. I was walking in a puddle by the end of the day last time I was out.

At a certain point, sanity has to take over. Boots have a lifespan. Your's ended. Get some new boots.
