Hi everyone,

25yr old from Toronto, Canada. Started doing this a few years ago with a handful of days/season. I'm Just starting to get comfortable. Already dragged at least 2 other noobs onto the hill. So if we're crashing into you, my apologies.

First time getting a season pass for a local hill. This should be a nice winter - if it'll arrive already. Maybe I'll go down to Killington or Jay one of these weekends. Mostly riding outside the park, but would love to try it eventually. That or Glades.

Ryan -

16 years old kid from Norway. Started snowboarding in my earlier years, then i decided to give skiing a try. But after one season i just realised it wasn't my style at all, and snowboarding is just WAAAY more fun imo. So yeah i'm getting into snowboarding again and im really stoked for this season, hopefully it will be alot of fun! Other than that i longboard when it's not winter, and DJ for fun.

Cheers from Norway

Hi Everyone,

I'm 29 and relatively new to snowboarding, went once a few years back and rented gear.

I don't like renting equiptment, so I bought a used board and bindings from a guy who said he only used it twice and then realized snowboarding wasnt for him. Board looks new and still has the inspection sticker on it. Got the board and bindings for 125. Also bought some cheap M3 boots for $50 at Big 5.

Figured I'd save cash by buying the gear as opposed to renting, plus I don't like using other people's boots.

Live in SoCal so I'll be hitting up local places and maybe Mammoth again (skiied there)

Been reading different threads to learn more about boarding.

Hello All,

39 in NC and although I'm old(ish), I'm also a complete newbie, but I'm looking forward to picking up the sport.

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and have picked up some good tips and advice along the way.

Shane

Whats up guys. My name is Shane, 23, Southern California native. I ride Mt. High, Bear, and whatever back country we can find around here. I make it a point to get to mammoth every year and I'm going up to Jackson and CO in January.

Back country is what I want to ride, groomers are what I ride most...

My name is Bojan, 26 programmer, live in Banja Luka. I just buy myself board Burton t52(excellent condition) and NorthWave freedom boots(excellent condition). Well i don't have any experience but i hope this year this will change. Also if someone can tell me if this equipment is good for beginner. If you have question about programming or any stuff which i can help just ask.

Best Regards.
