Yeah, don't be intimidated whatsoever with App. Its one of the smaller hills around. Sugar is the largest and the most vertical drop, longest run is 1.5 miles. Beech is a little smaller than Sugar. Should still be fun though, although its supposed to be a little warm this weekend. I will be up there as well with a few friends this weekend, hopefully a cold snap will come thru!

lol, no. I am completly fine with going down hills, no matter the steepness (went down the black diamond with no problem last weekend, thats why I guess people were like "damn, no way its your first time"), but the reason we go to app is the terrain parks, and thats what we will be hittin up and I will be trying rails and boxes. I mean if the balance required going down a rail in snowboarding is anything similar to skateboarding, I might be able to start to get it down the first day, lol.

but yea, looks like its gonna rain there friday, so I'm not sure about that.

I heard Beech was shut down due to the wind on Sunday... any truth there?

I was at Sugar and the wind was cruel, but it was a good day. Still surprised that it snowed ALL DAY.

Oh, and Frank, I have a finance degree from UNCC.

i hate i missed ya on sugar... we ended up staying there all weekend we never even went up to beech. Had I known you were there I would have gotten up with you for some riding! Chances are we prob saw each other on the slopes several times and didnt even know it.

what do you ride in and what board are you on?

I am riding an 09 GNU riders choice and I wear brown pinstripe pants and a black burton jacket. I also had a digital green camo face mask on all day as well.. the guys at the lift recognized me every time because of it and just stopped even looking for my lift ticket..LOL

I was on an Atomic Greg Maxwell Hatchet - light tan Patagonia shell black Marker goretex pants. That board is MUCH more noticeable than the gear I had on, lol.

The weather was cruel at times, eh? Those gusts were serious!

Is that RC with MTX and if so, how do you like it?

is it an 09 hatchet? that is a cool ass looking board! Unfortunately I didnt notice it all day out of all the boards i DID notice.

There were a few times the wind damn near blew me to my front edge.... I almost caught a front edge and ate it a few times due to a sudden gust!

Yes my GNU is an MTX board.... I hate to give into the hype but it is a phenomenal board! My buddy just bought a LIB dark series with magna traction and I made a believer out of him after only a few runs on one. He always gave me a hard time about me saying magna was great but it was a riot to hear him say that I had made him a believer as well!

I guess its like anything, if youve been riding a forgiving board for 10 years and switch to something super sticky, you may not like it. However if you are still earning what you like and havent developed your preference yet 100% then it would be something great to pick up. The boards are definitely "grabby" but thats what the idea of it is. Once you learn how the board wants to be ridden you just roll with it.

I still havent ridden a BTX board yet, and I have actually been seriously thinking of trying to get a park pickle (GNU's limited version of the skate banana) I hear the BTX boards are the opposite though, supposedly they are very loose when riding them and they have to have magna traction to keep them planted.
