New From WA
 
Hey i just wanted to say hello, ive been riding for 12 years now and working in the industry for 4seasons now about to enter my 5th. I live in the great NorthWest which means i love to ride natural bumps, lines and pow pow. I frequent car forums so much that i figured id join a snowboard forum so i can share my knowledge and stories with fellow riders, as well as learn and listen(well read) from them:laugh:

Mostly i ride at Alpental and Crystal but i trek to Whistler, Baker, Whitepass, Stevens, pretty much anywhere local to the NW. To put it simply, i just love to ride.

Also any BC riding advice you have to give is much appreciated. Ive been adventuring out alot more in recent years and i would like to be as safe as possible when im out there. plus im super indecisive when it comes to gear so any input would be greatly appreciated.

if you wanna stay safe just make sure you're always taking lots of safety meetings. :D

Question then. I always wanted to go to baker but everything I hear it's gnarly and probably unsafe for someone like my wife :laugh:

What's the best resort out of Seattle? I know there is Stevens Pass, and a few others (Crystal?)

I want something with a lot of natural features in bounds so I can cruise with the wifey while she avoids them I'll try to hit them

volcom21d 09-14-2012 01:22 AM

Haha sounds like your wifey can kick it with my wifey while we find some unsafe stuff hah

Safety first, meetings are the best way.:thumbsup:

I think Baker would be all right, possibly perfect. It's steep & gnarly but all that steep gnarly shit is crammed in amongst the easy shit.
There is gnarly shit literally 20 feet away from the easy shit every where on the mountain. They/she could ride what they wanted & you could ride what you wanted & still be able to see & hear them pretty much @ all times.
If that's what you wanted to do?

TT
