Hi, I'm Jessie. I'm 34 yrs old, a Michigan native and now live in Port Orchard, Washington. This is my second year back from a very long hiatus. I boarded in my high school years then joined the Navy. Life changed dramatically for me at that point with getting married having kids being deployed, and stationed overseas. Well after 14 years of dedicated service to our great country I am now a vet and back to civilian life.
I got back into boarding after hearing my step son talking about how his and I say this lightly, dad, had taken him once before and how much he enjoyed it. So last Christmas I got him and I boards and gear and so the fire was re-ignited. Now it's all either of us think about to the point that his mother/my wife gets tired of hearing about it . We spent all of last year shredding Crystal Mountain. This season I purchased passes for Summit as Snoqualmie But I'm sure we'll make trips back to Crystal as well as check out some of the other surrounding resorts. I have a good friend who lives in Salt Lake City, UT and we possibly may take a weekend trip to hit up Park City. Anyway that's my story. Ride safe and have fun this season!

hey all

I picked up snowboarding in AK back in 2009, and I've never looked back since. Snowboarding for me isn't a hobby or interest, it's a passion. So I hope to learn and share much while I'm here.

Newbie here from Ohio. I snowboarder for the first time while in high school over about 15-16 years ago. I gave up shortly after for the sake of partying more and girls. Anyway life has settled down and that's when I got the bug that myself and my boys should get out there. Naturally the wife is coming along for the ride as well. Anyway hope to get some good knowledge as I am sure things have changed.

Thanks man. Have been coming to this site for along time, reading reviews and what not. Felt it was time to join the community. Have been many places. More than some, not nearly as much as many, nor as widespread as I desire. Jaskson Hole on the hit list. Utah. New Zealand. Chile.

This year: Tignes, 3 Vallees, Val D'Isere, Zermatt/Cervinia, and Chamonix Mont-Blanc.

Friends coming from California for three weeks, so I have to show them around. Will hit up St. Anton am Arlberg, Damüls, Ischgl (which is half in Austria and half in Switzerland. Swiss side: Samnaun). May hit up LAAX, & St. Moritz, and Davos Jakobshorn, then pop down to Italy: Cortina, Cervinia (and Zermatt), to Tignes/Val D'Isere, Chamonix Mont-Blanc and Tres Vallees. (P90X to get them legs ready)

If you have a sec, look on the internet for trail maps of these. HUGE in comparison to those in Tahoe, and Colorado. Many 1/2 the price.

Going to be a fun winter.

Ever need any tips, don't hesitate to ask! Happy carving.

Hey guys, I signed up last winter and never really posted so I'm going to reintroduce myself!

I moved to Breck from the east coast a few weeks ago, and am working at the Ski & Ride School for the winter! Life is super awesome right now. I ride a 2011-12 Never Summer Proto CT, it's such a sweet board.

I'm contemplating on heading over to Keystone or A-Basin today to get my first turns of the season in, but there are only 3 decent runs open between the two of them We need some snow!!

I recently came back into snowboarding from about 2 yrs ago, but have been riding off and on for the last 10 yrs. I'm looking into understanding what's new. My past boards over the 10 yrs were a Lamar something or other, Burton Custom, Ride DH, and Forum Youngblood. Also had a chance to try out a Jaime Lynn Lib Tech and Never Summer (forgot the model.) I also ride a lot all-mtn/freestyle and not a lot of park. Hope my curiosity gets filled here. Thanks.

Hey people's,

Kinda new to the game as far as being more Aggressive in the snowboard arena. Name's David, from the SF Bay Area. I've been skating for the past 10+ years and the last 3 I've been getting more into's a heck of a lot nicer to land on power than But yeah, if your in the area I do board waxes for 15 bucks a pop I've got a set up in my garage. Also I'm starting an outerwear company called Eureka Supply Co.(eurekasupplyco | Home). Other than that I'm pretty chill laid back 22yo that enjoys shredding and driving my old school Subie.
