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.

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.
Welcome to the forum. Im jealous of your board. I love my Euphoria for tight east coast woods though.

Hello everyone, I just picked up the sport last year with my girlfriend. It's been pretty tough to get out this year due to a new job this year. I hope to find a lot of great advice that will help me progress as much as I can on the days when i do make it out to the mountain.

Default Greetings from the left coast!

Hey everybody, new member here from California. My first snowboarding excursion was several years ago, but I haven't been serious about it 'til this season, so I'm pretty much still a beginner, although I'm hoping to be an intermediate level rider within the next month. I just purchased a Ride Machete to replace my cheap Lamar Mission board from a few years ago, which I think is kinda a POS. I'm hoping the Machete will greatly improve my riding experience. It gets rave reviews so I don't think I'll be disappointed. I'll find out tomorrow when I return to the mountain. Anyway, this is my first post but I've already learned A LOT by reading through the forums (Snowolf's advice especially which helped me really get the hang of linking my turns) and I hope I'll be able to pass on some knowledge myself and learn even more. I have many hobbies but snowboarding is definitely one of my biggest passions so I'm glad I found this site. See ya all around!

What's up all!? 21 from PA been creeping around the forums for awhile now decided to finally start posting. Love to snowboard get out at least once a week. Mainly I hit up Blue Mtn in Pa but saving up some $ to broaden my horizons in different area's of the world. Currently riding a 160 Burton Balance w/ 2011 Union Bindings mostly stick to the mountain but if I feel the urge I'll try and get a line or two in at the park. If anyone is interested in boarding together shoot me a PM always down to meet new people. Happy boarding all!

Default konichiwa, snow forum nation!

Hi! This is Jacob from Gunma Japan. I'm 5'10'' 150 and ride a 152 "THM Team" snowboard and brand-less bindings that a friend gave me for free. This is my first season, but i've hit the mountain about 30 times.

I like powder, jibbing around, and hitting the small park features. I want to learn how to perfect my butters, presses and ground tricks, since that's the style around here, and it looks sick. I also want to progress to styled medium jumps as I love that feeling of fresh mountain air. Any board/bindings suggestions are welcome as i'll probably upgrade in the off-season

My home snowparks are Kawaba and Norn, but I'm always down to check out new resorts in Gunma, so holler at me if you're in my neighborhood.
