Hi everyone, my name is Pink Robe.
Hi Pink!

Hey. I've been snowboarding since x-mas day in '93, but the last few years have been pretty lame for me in terms of riding.
Awww.

I'm trying to get back into it for this season, including getting a new board and bindings. I am perplexed by all the rocker/camber stuff. I like trees, powder and booze. I live in Calgary, so my home hill is Lake Louise. I also like Revelstoke and Valhalla Powdercats.

Hey I'm a total goof and slacker, but love boarding and having fun. I'm from Medford Oregon, and my local shred spot is Mt. Ashland. It's not much but it gets the job done. Been snowboarding for a few years but am still learning tons everyday. I am a former member of the colonies.snowboard.com community. May it rest in peace.

Hello,

My name is Tom and I'm in Spokane, Wa. I'm 37 and a new rider.

My kids started 3 years ago and I got sick of watching and listening to them having so much fun while I sat in the lodge. So I decided to give it a try this year. ...and I got the bug bad!! I can't believe I waited so long to start..but now that I have I hope to do it until I'm like 100.

My set up is...

160 Skate Banana
Ride RX bindings
Ride Census boots

Already have season passes to Mt. Spokane and impatiently waiting for the snow to fall.

That's my son's ParkStar, Pabst board in the background. He runs Ride bindings and DC boots. The GNU bindings are my other sons.

Hey, my names Adam, I've been riding for about 6 years. I'm 17 and an avid Free Rider.
Live in Calgary, and get out any chance I can get, Mainly Nakiska, but I do get out to Sunshine, Kicking Horse and Panorama if I'm lucky.
My board Is a Burton Bullet, but it's getting progressively worse moisture damage, so I'll need a new one soon.
- Ride EX Bindings
- Burton Boots (Prototypes apparently, bought them 4 years ago)

Even though "technically" the appearance doesn't make a difference, you gotta look good.
Jackets:
- Ripzone Trilogy Black Grey and White Horizontal Striped
- Columbia Omni-Tech Orange Jacket
Pants:
- Columbia Titanium Beige Snowpants
- Other Snowpants I can't find (Dark Grey Last Time I saw them)
Goggles:
- anon Helix goggles, Purple Lens
Helmet
- Giro Bad Lieutenant, Navy Blue
Gloves:
- Columbia Black Nameless Gloves

So yeah, thats me, Looking to replace my goggles helmet and board soon, with the Oakley Splice and some other better helmet and board.

The best part of Alberta weather; It snows in September.

I've been using these forums for a while now, mostly reading rather than posting, it is about time I introduced myself.

My name is Ben, I am 26 and live in Melbourne, Australia. I first tried snowboarding in 2006 and hated it because I was so bad and couldn't get the hang of it, I tried skiing in the same trip and found that even harder. I didn't think I was going to go back, but in 2007 I was talked into going again, this time it clicked and I was getting down runs without falling. 2008 is when I really started getting into snowboarding, I bought a lot of my own gear including my own board, and improved a lot over 2008 and 2009. Now nearing the end of the 2010 season in Australia, my snowboard addiction has been in full force, going as much as possible including a trip to New Zealand and been loving every trip!

I would call myself an intermediate rider. I like bombing down the green runs at full speed, and this season have started to learn how to carve down blue runs but still learning. I like black runs but I'm not very fast down them. I also like going through mogul fields but I ride inbetween and turn around the moguls which probably isn't right lol. So far I've only done smaller kickers in the park, but starting to get more into jumping and buttering this year and bought a second board specifically for that, still have a heap of learning to do in that area.

My current setup is:
2009 Rome Anthem 153cm w/ Union Force bindings
2011 Rome Postermania 150cm w/ Union Contact bindings
(Can you tell I like rome and union?)

And I wear..
Giro G10 helmet
Oakley A Frame goggles
DC helix jacket (or a Burton soft shell hoodie for the warmer days)
Planet Earth pants (which I might replace soon)
K2 Darko boots (I tried on so many different pairs of boots before buying these last year)

And can I say I'm jealous of you guys outside of Australia with your powder snow! In Australia the snow is either just slushy or icey or both. I really want to head to more resorts overseas!
