Whats up everybody!
My name is Maciej (its Polish). Im 26 live in NYC, been riding for a while now but not regularly and with big breaks in between so Im still pretty novice. However this season I decided to put some effort into it and I will be hitting the slopes and improving my skill every chance I get. Unfortunately the east coast isnt the best place to ride but non the less I will be determined to imrove my self. Ive already beeen lurking around and found some great info. Happy to be officialy part of the crew! Cherrs!!!

Hey Everyone!

My name is Michael and I snowboarded about 3 times total so far over this and last years. Really like the sport and looking to get my own gear now lol need help shopping too!

I'm from Chicago and been to Cascade, Granite Peak and Wilmot, all in the midwest here lol.

I'm about 177 pb weight, size 10/11 shoes ... so my choice of board so far is Flow Merc 163 wide. Is this the right board/size for me? What binding/boots would you recommend?

Thanks so much

Hello Everybody

My name is also Michael and from the Chicago area. My home hills are also Cascade, Granite Peak and Wilmot. Getting most of my practice in at Wilmot. Started last year and hitting the blue and black runs this year.
Started with the Morrow Radium 163, Lamar MX25 Bindings and Head Classic Boots. Just Upgraded my boots to the K2 Maysis ! WooHoo ! Ride or K2 bindings are next. A second board sometime later. Love this sport, should have started 20 years ago. BTW I'm turning 50 this season. All you younger people try not to shredd over the the top of me and I'll try not to do the same K LOL Boarding also with my son 17 and daughter 14.

Hey, whats up guys. I am 18 and live in texas, yet yearn for the slopes. I plan to go to college at Utah State this fall, 30 minutes from the slopes. As I am writing this, we are in Crested Butte for the week snow boarding. I have skied my whole life, but recently took up snow boarding. Tomorrow will be the 6th day to snow board in my lifetime. So far I have going from heel to toe pretty good, its just going strait that is the issue. Glad to be here yall!

Sup guys! My names Chris, im 24, and i live in the North Idaho Panhandle (hence the username)

Im a semi-new snowboarder. Ive been skateboarding and surfing my whole life. i moved to idaho from southern california when i was 22 and had to find something to do during the winter, and im pretty much falling in love with snowboarding. So much so that i plan to move closer to the mountain for easier access. I currently only live like an hour from the mountain, but i want to be close enough to wake up and get some fresh runs before work.

Anyone else from the north idaho area can get in touch with me! im always looking to meet new people to ride with. I mostly ride schweitzer and, rarely, silver mountain.

Wassup all.

New to this. Only been boarding twice in my life. First time I went my cousin and I took the 45 minute lesson taught by some teen and spent the rest of the day taking some spectacular wash outs. Went again last March, watched a 3 minute youtube video and by the end of the day i was making my way down intermediate trails. I was kinda shaky on those trails and fell a bit but I made it through pretty well. Funny how that little video taught me better then that $60 lesson.
Anyhow I'm a Queens, NY native. 32 years old. Snowboarding is my new winter fun. Spring through late Fall I am a diehard, coked up Paintball addict (10 yrs now).
Looking forward to really getting to snowboard as much as possbile this season
