Hello folks!

My name is Magne, and I'm an Norwegian thats been snowboarding for about 15 or 16 years. I'm 27 years old now, and live in Bergen, Norway, wich is also my place of birth. A beautiful place!

I hope to be active on this forum in the time to come. I've had a few seasons now with almost no snowboarding due to other interests and a whole lot of working, but now I'm back on track with snowboarding and I'm going to continue with that till i get old and die (on the mountain, hopefully).. I sold my old board (Ride Timeless) and boaught a Burton Custom with Burton Cartel Est bindings and the Ruler boots. I love the bindings and the boots, but mabye I'll get a new board for next season. We'll see.. I love both riding in powder and in the parks, and it all depends on the conditions on the mountain. New and fresh snow is better than anything!

One of the reasons I'm here is just to get some input from people outside Norway. Snowboarding is a fairly big sport over here (but skiing has taken more over the last few years), and as you know everybody here is born with skies on their feet (its kind of a saying over here. Just imagine how painful it would be to give birth to a baby with skies on his legs). I was born with a snowboard on my feet. Even though I've been skiing also, it's nothing compared to snowboard.


These are the places I've been snowboarding trough my youth (see links below). As a teenager we all had season tickets at Voss, but later I've been trying to variate it a little bit more, going to many different places each season. But Voss is still my home when it comes to snowboarding. Love it there! Eikedalen also can be decent. All of them are located about 1,5 - 2 hours from Bergen.

Voss: http://www.vossresort.no/english
Eikedalen: http://www.eikedalen.no/
Mykdalen: http://www.vossfjellandsby.no/en/page3.html


Aaaand I'm here to practise my english! So have a nice day motherfuckers, and I'll see you on the (message) board!

Default Just saying hi

Hello everyone and I don't know why I didn't find this forum earlier in my snowboarding life... Hopefully I can pick up new tricks and tips and maybe gain new snowboarding buddies. Take cares!

What's up everyone. I'm 22 years old and have been snowboarding for about 11 years now. I grew up in New Hampshire and study EE in Boston...needless to say, I ride the ice coast but I've made a couple trips to mountains out west (Breck CO, Vail CO, and Bear Mountain CA). I guess my "home" mountain would be Loon, which is about 1.5 hours from home and 2 hours from school.

That's it for me...take it easy!

Hey everyone.

To keep this short, I always enjoyed watching snowboarding and playing snowboarding games for many years, but lived far away from the slopes (along with not having much money). Once I moved out to the Mid-Atlantic Region and had friends that were into snowboarding (along with a job that pays), I decided to finally try it late last year. Lets just say I'm completely hooked and snowboarding has become my favorite thing to do. Got my own board/bindings/boots and upgraded all my winter gear. I mostly stick to Liberty/Whitetail/Roundtop since I'm an MD resident, but plan to travel out more.

As for how I snowboard, first time I went down the bunny hill falling a few times, but the day I went I was having perfect runs, so I've upgraded to steeper slopes. Still not going down the deepest slopes yet, but I'm making progress. My only issues are I need to get better at turning (being more consistent with it and having better flow going heel side and toe side) and stopping (I usually fall when stopping).

Default bet you didn't expect that...

I'm 22 years old and I'm from Israel.
I have "3 Seasons" of experience, which really comes down to about 21 days.

I've got my own equipment which is:
Burton Deuce (Wide) 159cm
Burton Mission Bindings
and some Northwave boots, which I can't remember their name.

Yea. I know you guys hate Burton

i like mt holly. I only rode once in michigan this year and that was at alpine, the rest of the season i rode in colorado. I got rolling in the sport last year and hit up mt brighton, mt holly, and pine knob a bunch of times. I kinda wanted to go up to boyne or nubs this year, but it's not going to happen.
