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!

Hello everyone. New here as a member but have garnered a bunch of info off posts in this forum over the last couple of years via Google results turning up threads from this site. I figured I may as well become a member.

I'm from Michigan, 32 and only started riding a couple years ago because my wife always wanted me to go skiing with her but I hated skiing after trying it only once. Now I am obsessed with snowboarding and spend more time on the slopes than she does. My only regret is that I didn't start riding when I was a kid; damn those kids that fly past me fearlessly!

I guess my home "mountain" would be Caberfae Peaks near Cadillac even though it's a two-hour drive for me. There are some downstate areas closer but I usually spend the extra time to make the drive there. I go to Crystal Mountain, MI quite a bit as well, but generally prefer the prices and people at Caberfae.

Anyone else from Michigan on the forum?

Default Greetings from Seattle

Hey everyone! My name's Garrett. I'm 30 and live in the Seattle area. I've been riding for 16 years now. Crystal is my home mountain but I generally spend a fair amount of time at other mountains each winter.

I used to be an active member on the Snowboard.com forums and recently started wondering if there was another good forum for snowboarders. So, I ended up here.

Hey guys, My first season riding and already fell in love with this sport. 24 Yrs old, originally from Texas and station here at Ft.Lewis with the Army. Most of my riding is done at Summit at Snoqualmie. Went from falling on my ass the first day to shredding down the blacks my 3rd time out. Having friends that are way more experienced than I has helped push me to improve my riding everytime I go out, each time I go out I try and go bigger and faster and learn from my mistakes.

Right now I'm riding a 165 Ride Berserker which has now been nicknamed the cadilac because it handles like one lol. I'm 6'1 and about 220lbs, I have been recently using my buddies 155 Forum and been working on doing basic jumps and park. I'm new to riding but I love getting off the trail as much as possible, and hitting the park about every 3rd or 4th run.
