Thumbs up New member from (Gresham) Oregon!

Hey just a little about me; my names David, I've ridden for about 3 years now, 16 and made it up 43 times up to timberline last season (which I think is not bad for a highschool student without a car or a job ) I've ridden both meadows and timberline but prefer timberline quite a bit more as people in meadows are generally too obsessed with their gear or too obsessed with trying to be better than everyone else (coming from my age group at least) while timberlines more mellow with things and doesn't really have lift lines the park crew is top notch and timberline has the free fusion bus that comes out of sandy every weekend! But yeah it's almost fall and I'm getting so stoked for next season here are some pictures of Hood from last season for people who haven't seen it! Also as a side note is anyone going to the Ski fever snow expo this November? Or has anyone gone?

Yeah it's also pretty killer to go out of bounds on glade down from the top of flood down to ski bowl and ride at skibowl when the sun sets and for the night

Was zigzag tracked out at all or just all powder? I've been thinking about it but dont want to do it if it's hardpack the whole way. But I'm also looking forward to when timberline opens the down hill mtbing lift service in the summer unfortunately thats in a couple of years at the current estimate

Yeah; that's a pretty good idea to; I've heard people talk about it in the lodge and stuff and have always wondered if it was the same as the hiking trail or just a slang name for a pretty windy trail maybe when I get the funds for a split board I'll go with a couple of friends who do quite a bit of backcountry but don't ride too much in bounds are there any brands of regular snowboards that I should avoid for split boards?

Yeah; I'm probably going to do the obsessive research associated with buying a new snowboard; for a while I've been eying the Venture Storm Split version but I'm not deciding till I have the grand to spend on it haha

I have all that from mountain climbing just need a split plus I have this obsene hatred of renting unless I'm demo-ing gear; I'd rather wait a season and be able to use a split when ever I want to than pay a season early to rent something and never see the money again

Yeah I get that; I skied for 8 years starting when I was four before snowboarding so I think it'll be a pretty natural but I'll definitely demo one just not really looking to rent for more than one or two times
