Hey Deb;

Where are you planning on riding? I'm asking because today's the last day of the Mount Seymour season's pass sale -- although as legallyillegal points out, they'll just go to a 40% off sale for the first part of October.

Grouse is way past their sale, and Cypress prices just suck all year. Whistler will make you grab your throat and fall to the ground.

Anyway, welcome to Vancouver.

Hey, thanks for the heads up! I don't really have the money for a season pass right now. Going to just go where I feel like on the day I think and keep a look out for discount coupons and stuff. I hear Mount Baker just across the border is pretty good and cheap too so might check that out!

Do you have any thoughts on my board choice and sizing? I know there could be better brands but with the discount I can get it's prob worth it

Hey
Thanks for your reply! I think the 149 looked about right for me too I was just worried about the weight thing! So how are you liking Vancouver and how long have you been here? I've been here since May and love it so far! So where do you work in the snowboarding industry? It's so bad I am already wishing the autumn away I want snow!!

Hi Yoguis, what do you think of the Salomon Lotus Salomon Snowboards? Is this too much of a beginners board? It's super flexy i'm not sure if that's a good thing?

I'm 5'10" and 190 and I ride a 156. I might go to a 160 or so because I tend to sink in powder. Based on the chin-rule, the 149 should be good for you. If you do a lot of all-mountain or off-piste then go longer, otherwise I don't think there's any reason to.

Default Intro to me!

Hi, my name is Lisa. I currently live in Calgary, AB previously I have lived in Ontario and British Columbia so I think I've seen some of the best snow in Canada. I started snowboarding about 10 years ago and for the first two years rode almost everyday. After moving to Calgary with University and work I struggled to find the time to get out to the hill so hopefully this forum will help me feel a little more connected to the snowboarding world and get the scoop on which hill has the best snow to make the most of the little time that I have to ride!

So you should be able to go to Lake Louise regularly (assuming transportation, money, time, etc). I've never been there but some people on this forum swear by it.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Tom Metcalf and I'm from London, UK. There's not much snow round these parts, so I spend my winters in Europe on seasons in Austria or France. Right now, i can't wait for the winter to come round again!

I'm a big K2 snowboards fan.

See you around and check out my website in my signature if you're interested.

Cheers

Tom

Just a point for around Baker, if it dumps, you can only do groomers on a short board, cause you will sink and swim; imo better with a longer board to take advantage of the off piste dumps, the disadvantage runs tend to be narrow and steeper than most other resorts so you get to develop some skills with a longer board. Otoh, if it is hard and glazed, which also happens...a longer board is shitae...so get both. Daughter is 5'4", 130, has a 144 for park, 149 for regular days and a 155 for poo.
