hello everybody,
I'm Joren, 22 years old. I live in flatland Belgium but each year I head for the mountains. I get about 20-30days of boarding each season. I've been snowboarding for about 10 years now. My current resort is ski amade (mostly Flachau and Flachauwinkl). I'm currently riding a bataleon jam 161w (2011) with some union force bindings and I'm very happy with that.
This was my short intro, hope to get some reading done here.
cheers

Here are some pointers:

Sorry, I couldn't help myself! But seriously, welcome and have fun! Reading is a good idea, I learned a lot just by lurking around. I'm also a newb and don't even have my own stuff yet. You're way ahead of me

Hey Everybody. My name's Matt, I'm from Boston but go to college in New Hampshire. Just started snowboarding this year and I've only been four times, but I can't wait to get back on the board. Got my first boardslide down last time I went so I'm just pumped to hit the park more.

Hi everyone...itīs my first post here. My name is Mike, iīm 39 years old. Born in Saxony/Germany, currently livinī in Berlin/Germany. I was skiing for ??? years and started snowboarding in the early 90īs; these days i prefer hiking and boarding in my old home areas in germany and in the Czech Republic, itīs called (in german) "Erzgebirge"...maybe no one knows here, but there are lots of pretty small and funny resorts ...anyway. my first own board was an light blue WFO freestyleboard, followed by an 92īs burton 6.1 (does anybody remember this?).
In Boards i prefer the true twin shape, not too soft in flex...rocker or camrock...nothing special. Iīm just trying to repair my YES-board, until itīs ready again iīm using a simple rockerboard.
I donīt care much about professional snowboarding, so for me itīs more a personal workout or maybe a mental thing. Itīs easy for me to switch off the daily routine when iīm on board.

....so what else.... iīm looking forward for some good and interesting topics (and points of view) to discuss and nice people to meet...have fun...

...oh, sorry for my bad english itīs not my native language, so (please) laugh, but donīt blame me

Mike

heyo

I'm Courtney from southern CA, now living in the bay. About a month ago, my bf took me up to Tahoe to go boarding. At first I was like but then i was like .

We've gone up to alpine meadows here and there, a little more than a week total. Can get down the blues at alpine all right [squaw is cake], working on getting more comfy at high speeds/steeper slopes. Can't wait to start backcountry. Definitely having a hard time staying away from the mountain.

Hey, I am going to start calling Alpine Meadows my "home mountain" - that's where I learned and will keep going back. Nice to meet someone else here who knows the place

Are you saying Squaw is easier? I think I'll try going over there soon (interchangeable lift tickets FTW!). The advanced blues at Alpine kicked my ass this weekend. Literally. 5th day on a board and I took the Summit lift. Bad idea

Ah anyway, welcome and have fun on the forums while you're not out having fun on the slopes!

Same here! Definitely my home mountain as well.

Squaw was quite a bit easier, at least in my opinion. Their blues were more like the greens/bunny hills at alpine in terms of steepness. I'm sure there are runs that are more difficult at squaw, but alpine feels a LOT steeper pretty much everywhere.... except when its flat. -.- lol

I did the same thing after like a week of riding! Ended up on a black diamond. No bueno

Thanks for the welcome, and I shall try!
