I'm new on here too. I'll probably be up to Camelback a few times this coming season. I'm in central PA and the biggest hill we got is 1200' =(

Whats up everyone, Im new to the boards, but am a seasoned rider. I made the switch to a board in '97 having skied since I was about 5 or 6. I grew up in northern NM going to Toas,Santa Fe, Angel Fire, Sipapu, and Wolf Creek. Been in Denver since '01 and have had a season pass ever since and can't wait to strap on my new NS-SL!
Im sure I will get to know you peeps over the next month or so, seems like boarding is the only thing on my mind and now I can BS with you on here.

Howdy,
I'm from Maryland originally, grew up skiing on the little bump that passed for a mountain in that area, and switched to snowboarding when I was about 13.

I'm 24 now, and have just picked it back up after taking a few years off (who knows why, just did). I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the mountains are definitely better than Maryland.

Default Hi! Newbie to the forum looking for some advice!

Hey

Iím an English girl now living in Vancouver and have joined the forum as I hope to be getting lots and lots of snowboarding in this winter! Previously, Iíve had to go to mountain resorts in Europe for a week to get my kick (which is v expensive) so Iím so happy to now have the mountains on my doorstep!

SoÖto start me off I actually need to buy a board (Iíve always rented them previously to avoid airline charges!). I have found out I can get a really god deal on Rossignol boards through my job, so Iím seriously considering the Rossignol Myth MYTH RE0WC06 Rossignol :: Pure mountain company. However, Iím really not sure about the sizing!! Every store I go into they tell me something different. Iím 5 foot 6 and about 63/64kg (140 pounds) so Iím towards the top end of the weight scale for the 149 board which says 40-70kg Ė but the next size up is the 154, would this be too long considering Iím 5 foot 6? I am basically intermediate, mainly doing blue runs with teeny bit of red, linking turns, but still falling often! I donít plan to be in the park, but might like to try a few jumps when I improve. Mainly Iíd just like to take it easy and enjoy going down the blue and red runs with ease.

So what do you think of that choice of board for me?

Looking forward to getting lots of tips and tricks from all you more experienced boarders!

Cheers
Deb x

Hey Deb!

I'm new too in Vancouver. And I'm also from Europe (in France).
So for the size of your board, I advise you to stay on 149. Why? Because it will be more manageable for you. You will not need more unless you decide to go in the snow.
Once, not that I do not like Rossignol, but I think there are more versatile boards for you, and best suited to your program, and especially to your evolution.
You've found a shop in Vancouver? Where it without indiscretion?
Is what you bought your boots? (Most important to me, compared to buying a board and bindings).
If you want, I can help in the selection of boards, especially since I work in the snowboard industry.
Contacting me message, and why not go riding or have a drink one day
