Sure, the meet ups are fun. Congrats on the little one!! Your wife isn't missing much the way this season has been going, that's for sure.

Hope to see ya out there!

Hi all! New here, new to snowboarding in general. I started back in 2006, but took a digger the second day out and broke two bones in my arm...sufficed to say, it's taken me awhile to get back on the board. I haven't been in a few years. My "first" winter is sport is Falconry, and I used to spend all my days/weekends out with the hawks or falcons. I recently had a baby, so I didn't have enough time to devote to the hunting sport, but still wanted to maintain my ties with the outdoors. I started again last weekend, went for 4 days, picking it up okay again. I'll be getting out several more times this season, so I hope I can progress well!

Welcome!

Wow...Falconry?! That's interesting. Birds of prey are pretty spectacular creatures.

Thumbs up Hi

Hello all,

That's my first post (although I've been a silent reader for a couple of months)... Lots of great people and info running around these forums.

I'm living in Israel, riding for 5 years (5-6 days per season in Europe, trying to go to a different resort every year).
Learned to ride by myself except for the first day where I had a private lesson of about 40 minutes, so I guess I'm somewhat of an intermediate rider.

Starting this season I'm hoping to ride at least 2 weeks each season, although it's hard to do it here - you have to travel overseas to see some snow...
Hopefully it'll work out for me, but anyways - great to be here!

Cheers,
Amir

New member here, alot of good info. i'm getting back into snowboarding after 8 years even though im only 27. i snowboarded all through out high school and some of college. i've already gone 3 times this season even though its been pretty warm around here. I couldn't believe that i picked it right back up with no problems.

my new board and bindings should be here this week and i can't wait to really get things going again.

I fully agree! I'll get back into it some day, it's just a huge time commitment..just not super feasible with a new baby to go out hunting everyday for several hours.

Congrats on the new addition!

One of the highlights of my summer was seeing a Red-Tailed Hawk tail feather when I was out riding a horse one day haha. Seriously, I was so stoked to see it! There are some resident hawks where I was riding and I've tried for years to scope out the areas for closer looks of them. This one was in an entirely different area than where I had seen the hawks. However. I've seen rabbits over there plenty of times. I suppose the hawks did, too...

Well, thanks so much! My husband can't wait to start teaching her how to ride...I don't think he listens to me that 7 months old is a tad young. We'll tackle the whole walking thing first. ha!

Red tails are super cool. I've only flown one out of the 7 birds that I've had over the years, but he was my favorite. I had to release him once I was huge and pregnant, as detangling myself from barbed wire fences was becoming a circus act.

Haha that's awesome about your husband and daughter.

Wow...that does sound interesting! I didn't know they're able to be released, just like that. They seem so spectacular in so many ways.
