Hello from Colorado
Just joined. Got into boarding recently, about three years ago but haven't been able to go but 2-3 times a year. This year I bought the EPIC pass so I hope to get up at least 10-15 times and try to get better. I'm pounding down steep blues and blacks without massive mogules...trying to get to the point I can basically carve all-mountain. I'm also thinking of learning how to do some trick/park riding but at the ripe age of 40, I feel sort of funny falling on my ass constantly in the park.
Something to note also...I think I'm embarresing my kids with my snowboard fashion sense...or lack thereof? My winter gear is mostly Mountain Hardwear and Arc'Teryx and my kids tell me that I need to get something that doesn't make me look like ski patrol.
I'm also going to post a thread on help buying a new board...
