Oh, and I'll be in Vermont around Christmas time this year as well, just not sure where yet!
Wow, 15 seasons? Hardcore! Nice to meet you!

My name is Tom and I live in Alberta. I started snowboarding in 1988 when I was 16 and have kept going every year since so I would consider myself old school but am going to try an step outside of my comfort zone and try some freestyle and park this season. I bought my first snowbaord, a 151cm Barfoot Freestlye, from Ken Achenbach at the original Snoboard shop in Calgary which is now a Source snowboard and skate shop. I love interacting on these forums with fellow snowboards as there are not a lot of boarders my age in my area. Can't wait to get out for another season and try some new things. I like to Longboard with my dog in the summers and wakeboard whenever I get the opportunity, which is rare due to the fact that I don't own a boat. I also have a 3 year old daughter that I'm going to try and start out skiing next year and see if she'll like snowboarding when she is a little older and has developed some better snowboard muscles.

Thumbs up Hello

I've been riding for sixteen years. Skied for six years before that and still trying to forget those days.
Yeah... so I'm 3/4 of the way up the hill!!! But still learning new stuff every season.
I've got the whole family thing going on, a wife and three kids. Two of the kids will be hitting the sn*w for the first time this season.
I'm from upstate NY.
I've hit up just about all of the big mountains in the northeast and many of the smaller ones.
I've never been out west . That pilgrimage will definitely come in the next year or two.
This is my fifth season with a pass to Killington. It's not my favorite mountain but they have a long season and it's only about an hour away.
I've had season passes at Gore Mountain, Whiteface, and West Mountain (a small mountain with night skiing) all of which are in upstate NY.
My favorite northeast mountain... Sugarloaf USA in Maine.
I worked at a ski/snowboard rental shop for seven years during high school and college.
I've got plenty of experience, knowledge, and stories to share.
On most days I spend about 60% of my time out on the trails or in the glades and 40% of my time in the park. That's most days. Powder days it's more like 90% trails/10% park. But, so far, this season it's been 20% trails / 80% park.
I and the crew I ride with go to ride, and that is what we do. We do not stop and sit down in the middle of a run. We go full speed, top to bottom, pretty much all the time.
I have to ride at least once a week or I'll go insane and it usually works out to be twice a week.
I've been to Killington twice since opening day last friday (11/16/07).
Last day there my favorite trail was Reason. The early season park they have set-up there is sick. I think my favorite feature right now is this quarter at the bottom with an oil drum thingy on top. It's kind of like the one at the bottom of the run in my signature pic... only better!!!

Happy to be here. Time to see what's up on these boards. Pun intended.

My name is Brett. I am 30 yrs old and have been playing in the snow most of my life. Just started snowboarding about two years ago, I had been a skier for most of my life. Not really into freestyle much, I prefer to keep the board on the ground as much as possible. More of a cruiser, carver. Go to the hills in NC about 3 weekends a month during the season, so give me a shout and I may see you up there.
