Hello all! New guy from Michigan. Went snowboarding for the first time about a week ago and am hooked! It was the most fun I have ever had (and most of it was spent rolling down the slope). I can"t wait to go out again and improve. I"ve been skiing a few times before but this is a whole other animal! Been lurking around and reading as much as I can about snowboarding but thought it time to join in.

Cool Hello

My name is Brett, I'm 34 years old from Phoenix, AZ. This will only be my 4th season snowboarding. I tried it once and fell in love with it. The next season I bought my own board w/errythang. I've only been to one resort and that's Sunrise Ski Park. Most people don't like it b/c it's owned by the White Mountain Apache's. Btw those Apache's are my cousins. Got a lot of family out there. Unfortunately none of them snowboard anymore. I'm looking to meet some chill folks up there. I was out there on SuperBowl weekend, and it was nice. Packed powder and temp in the mid-upper 30's. I planned on heading back up there this weekend, and to my surprise I see that there is snow in the forecast from Wednesday to Sunday. I also found out today that I get that following Monday off. Three day weekend on the slopes. I'm jus looking to hang out with some cool people. I probably won't have any trouble finding people by themselves either. Lots of day trippers up there. It's real laid back. Hope to see lots of people out there.

Hey,

I'm 14 years old and started snowboarding 2 years ago.
I picked my name cause that was my first board ever (I bought it on Sunday), I decided to buy a snowboard because the rentals just suck.
Setup:
Morrow Clutch 2010
Burton Freestyle Boots and Bindings.

I can do some tricks, and every kind of terrain (Black Diamonds, Glades, etc.)
I go to Greek Peak near Cortland, NY. Takes about 1hr 30min to get there.

So, hey.

Heyo, I'm from Michigan...I saw another new guy from Michigan a few posts up. I bought an old Burton Air in amazing shape a few weeks back, slapped some new Rome bindings on it, and am currently learning the basics!

Anyway, I'm pretty good friends with boarderaholic, and was actually wearing a shirt she mailed me today

I'm looking forward to learning a lot here (and actually, I already have) and hopefully becoming a competent snowboarder in the process!

HOLA!!!...New guy from Buffalo, NY. I tried snowboarding about 2 years ago and fell a lot. My 3rd run down I tore my MCL in one of my knees. Got back into it this year and although the first time back out was a bit nerve racking I had a blast and cant wait to steadily improve my skills and enjoy it for years to come along with my wife who loves it too

Hello

Hi, I've been reading this forum, it's really great. I'm Rhonda, 48 years old. From Missouri. My son got me into snowboarding. I had issues with shoes and board size at my class at Snow creek. I did an epic fail, but still loved snowboarding.I bought my 20 year old, and I equipment, and he's practically mastered all of the hills. He's been skate boarding for years....I'd not buy him a snowboard cause of the initial cost....(That's an odd statement, cause skateboards, shoes, etc, runs up kind of high too.)

So, he's doing great, me, I'm better now that my board and shoes fit me. I got nervous at the lift ride during the class, and though about it too much. But not now, I've practiced. One thing is, snowboarding has brought to me a level of physical fitness I had not had for a while. I like snowboarding. We are at the end of th3e season. Hopefully I can maintain the fitness level throughout the off season....and talk my son into buying a season pass, cause shelling out $40.00 each week is getting expensive.

Whats up all. A 36 year old broke down Journeyman Lineman with a Titanium leg. Actually I still have my leg it just has rods from the hip to knee and knee to ankle. My 20's where hell on me. I don't let it stop me though. Well, i guess thats not all true. It does keep me out of the park. Not out of the steep and deep though. I'm currently rocking a Venture Storm (solid)165 w/ 26cm waist and Head PX-10 bindings. If you take I-70 to ride then I'm sure we will run into each other at some point in time.

Definitely get the season's pass. If you don't have to worry about whether it's worth paying the $40 for a few hours here and there, you'll actually go up more often. Unless you're 5 hours away or something.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
