Hey everyone,

I'm a 23 year old living in Raleigh, NC. I first started skiing when I was 8 or 9, then tried snowboarding for my first time around 11. I went back to skiing because it's hard to pick up snowboarding when you're going one day a year on a church trip. Now that I can go on my own I'm done with skiing, because fuck skiing right? Anyway, I took my first trip out to Tahoe this past March, and I don't think I ever want to ride the east coast again.

Oh man this is a good off topic thread idea! Who's your favourite porn star and why?
My buddy turned me on to Christy Mack, check her out, no explanation should be needed..

My name's Chris, 12/13 was my first season snowboarding. Like many here tried it once, caught the bug, wished I would've started sooner (I'm 34), and now I love winter instead of dread it. I've met some dudes 60+ years that snowboard so I figure I've got a good 40 years (at least) of shredding left in me.

I live in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul), and there seems to be enough ok places to ride. I started my first day barely being able to stand up on the board and since then have progressed to being able to do quick dynamic turns and hit intermediate boxes/rails/jumps, while paying close attention to my technique to prevent bad habits from forming (centered stance, no using arms etc.). My progress really started to accelerate around my 8-10th time out or so. I used to aggressive inline skate when I was in my teens and early 20's and have already been doing core/balance training for a while with a trainer so I think that might have helped. I've gone about 33 times this year w/no pass. I plan on getting a pass to a place called Afton Alps here next season and want to get out 60+ times.

After about my 5th time I got sick of $hitty rental equipment and decided I would board enough my 1st season to make purchasing a set-up a worthy investment and am glad I did. After some research I opted for a GNU Carbon Credit 156, Burton Cobra Shark bindings, and Burton Moto boots.

I haven't been out west yet, the closest I've been to riding on a mountain is at the Lutsen Mountains in Lutsen, MN. Nothing like the mountains out west I'm sure but still pretty decent for the Midwest.

I have to credit much of what I learned my first season to posts on this site (especially from Snowwolf) and hope I will be able to contribute as well.

Hi everyone my name is Rose. I just started snowboarding the past season and I truly adore it. I'm really sad that winter is over. That's usually never the case. I used to despise winter. After learning to ride that I started to appreciate snow. Anyways, I can't wait to get to know others who enjoy this.

Hello, first time poster.

I've been snowboarding since 2004 and I'm a glades fanatic.

My home mountain is Holiday Valley but take trips out west every few years.

Looking forward to meeting all you.

Cheers!!

Whats NSW like? I'm in NZ, worth a trip or better of sticking with the mountains over here?

That is either some shocking match or commendable optimism

[QUOTE=AntipodeanSam;962562]Whats NSW like? I'm in NZ, worth a trip or better of sticking with the mountains over

Mate I know a lot of Aussies that go to NZ for the snow bit not many kiwis coming here, I think it's way more expensive your better going Japan experience some powder. It's same snow here only worse.
That said who I am to say bro?
Check out Perisher.com.au
Some pretty good runs

New user here,

I'm from NL, Canada and the closest hill is 90 minutes away and the better mountain is on the other side of the province. Heading to Whistler next year so I bought myself a Ride snowboard and I have a few questions.
