Default New to the wild west!

Hi, I'm a 29 year old female from Calgary Alberta. Just moved to the west from Toronto area. Enjoying the early season borading out here so far and loving the mountains! Relatively new rider, this is my second season of boarding and before moving west the biggest mountain I had boarded was Jay Peak in Vermont and I loved it!!!

I ride a 2010 K2 Luna with K2 Bliss bindings, love the board and hope to end up riding some park for jumps and halfpipe etc. Not really interested in rails or jibs. Looking forward to getting some insight on places to go and maybe meeting some other riders.

there was a thread recently that ranked the resorts around cow town. im not sure where it went. COP has a pretty good park and is the only place i know of in the province with a pipe. sunshine and louise are the best resorts that are close.

i just got back from revy and it was amazing and had over a foot of snow the first day and another 6 inches the next.

nakiska kinda sucks unless they get dumped on and there park only has rails.

hope that helps.

Yeah snowboarding brings a girl that's an 8 up to about a 9.5... I'd say there's a solid 1.5 point increase just by snowboarding. Unless it's alpine boarding and then it takes a couple points off. Unless you race and then it adds probably 2 full points.

We've all watched the olympics and drooled over the athletes!
