Hey all,

Name is Dave. Finally getting the opportunity to get back into snowboarding this upcoming season. Been out of the game for about 8 years now with family and being stationed in San Antonio with wife. We just got the news and will be movin up to Fairbanks in the near future.

Snowboarded avidly for about 5-6 years, unfortunately a shoulder injury took me out for a bit. Family grew and just had other priorities that kept me away. Will be primarily lookin to jump into freeride, get my feet back under me and see where I go from there.

Appreciate all the advice the forum offers and look forward to getting a chance to enjoy the sport again.

Whats up y'all. Nate here from Revelstoke BC. Just spent the last season in Queenstown NZ, loved every minute of it. Shredded BC once again, but due to visa issues I have to go to Aussieland instead of returning to NZ. Pretty bummed about it, but Ill be able to rip it there. Hopefully a good winter awaits the resorts.
Ive spent the last 6+years doing back to back winters. Living the dream.

I guess this is where I fill a few deets about interests.

Bacon WuTang lemon water. And Blake Lively.

Arbor boards, Rome bindings, K2 Boots, 686 Outerwear, Smith Goggles, Coal beanies, Pow gloves.

Since your an administrator I was wondering how do you post? Normally I could figure this out on my own but I just can't find it.

50 days is a damn good year! Where in Alberta are you? Last Sunday was my 30th day which is a record for me, but I'm going to try for 50 next winter and some other goals too...

Hi guys,

Thought i'd drop a quick post in here to introduce myself. I'm from the UK, only been riding for about 1.5 years so still relatively new to the whole scene. I class myself as an intermediate rider, happy to bomb down the mountain, done some back country and just starting to get into freestyle (only 50-50s, f/s & b/s boardslides, f/s & b/s 180s, some grabs etc). Gear wise, currently rocking a NS Evo with 390 Bosses.

Anyway whenever i've been looking for advice i always tend to come on here so thought it was about time i paid my dues, introduced myself and got involved so looking forward to chatting with you all in the future

"Paid your dues" literally. That's what we like to see

The amount of advice i've taken from here was well worth the price of a few drinks

Hey you guys!

I'm from Seattle (specifically Bellevue) and ride around Snoqualmie, Crystal Mountain and Stevens Pass. I've been snowboarding a couple days a season since 2000, but didn't get into it seriously until 2 years ago. Coincidentally, that was the same time I graduated college and got a job at a certain large software company. I used to have a 2001 K2/Sports Authority Viper, but now I ride a 2009 Bataleon Omni 157cm, 2009 Bataleon Evil Twin 155cm, and a 2012 Never Summer Evo 154cm and swap 2009 Burton Cartels and 2012 Union Forces between those boards. My favorite runs are mogul runs (I like to think of myself as pretty kingly on moguls), tree runs, and generally off-piste stuff. This year I'm starting to focus more on park, though.

Hey Guys,

Newbie here, All the way down under in Australia. I am moving over to Canada in October for the ski season at Silver Star Resort. Joined up to find out more information about snowboarding. Ive wakeboard the last 5 years so I kinda have a knowledge if they are similar style. So pretty keen to learn and buy my first board shortly and gaining advice from the members on here.

Thanks
