I'm another Austrlian snowboarder come to join in on the forum fun.
Haven't done much riding the last 2 sessions, was getting very bored with resort riding.
Started riding in 1985... Enjoyed the Alps of Italy and France, many trip to New Zealand and countless trips to my local Victorian snow fields.
My favourite style of riding is Big Mountain or what ever you call it.... I just like to find somewhere good and untouched, workout how to get there, ride it and finish the day with a very big smile on my face.
Another resort run, is just another run.... they all seem to blur together and get forgotton.
You never forget when it's You vs The Mountain
A far more natural state to go snowboarding in my view.....
I am probably very out of the loop when it comes to current equipment, so i will be looking forward to hearing your advice and having a few laughs.
