Hey

Hows it going, been reading these forums for a while. figured id join.

Ive been snowboarding for maybe 8 years, but living in Aus that was only like 1 week a year at either perisher or over in NZ. I did a month over at squaw valley near lake tahoe. and ive hit a few spots in norway over the last 2 years. pretty much gonna marry my norwegian chick now so i gave up the sun and beaches of Australia for the snow.

Ive always loved board sports. surf and skate pretty much every day back home, this will be my first full winter snow season ever so just got myself a new setup. looking forward to a big dump here so i can ride. been skating around the local area sussing out some street gaps and a few things in the woods behind me that im really hoping turn out sick. would love to find fellow riders around oslo area that are keen to shred.

Cheers, I hope you all have a rad season. i know i will.

Hey all. New guy here. Been riding on and off the better part of two decades. I'm currently living in Alaska and super stoked to be here but, originally, I hail from Portland, OR. If there's anyone in the Anchorage area, hit me up. I'm always looking for people to go ride with.

New to forum

Hello all, I just decided to join your forum. I started snowboarding in the late 80's and rode alot up till about '98 or '99. Life kids and career moves kinda got in the way and took a break from boarding till december of 2012 when I started back up again. It was like I went through a time warp, the gear is totally different and much more advanced, had to learn alot about new equipt. real fast. Since last yr I've developed a small arsenal of boards, and gotten my 13 yr old daughter and 10 yr old son into boarding. We live in WA and the places we usually ride are Snoqualmie area, White Pass, and Hood Area.
Thanks for providing a great place to come and learn...

I'm 14, I live in Minnesota, I've been snowboarding for like almost 7 years and it is my favorite thing to do. I don't fully understand what to do on this website so if someone could explain that would be awesome haha

Welcome fellow midwesterner. Where do you ride at? Mostly what we do here is share information about gear, conditions and other things. We also talk a fair amount of smack.

I ride usually at Buck Hill and all over MN, and occasionally Trollhaugen and Wild Mountain in WI, it's pretty cool that most places are starting to open up so early!

Yeah and we pretty much just talk. Ask questions, give feedback. As a young person who learned to board when you were 7 or so, you might be able to give some help to some young noobies better than an old fart like me can.

Also my favourite thing is posting trip reports and board reviews. If you go to a hill and like it, POST IT UP! If you go somewhere and don't also POST IT UP! The feedback can help other people decide where to go...

Welcome! Now you just gotta get out of the prairies and into the mountains... Trips are fun, but living here is better!

Been here for a short time now but here's a bit about me as well

My name is Morten I just turned 25 years, and I live in Denmark, which is located in the northern area of Europe. Even though we're placed close to Norway we do not have any sort of mountains which makes it pretty difficult to go snowboard.
I'm a student at an academic program in marketing management and planning on adding a BA degree to it from the summer of 2014. Right now I'm actually applying for the Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, Canada for the whole BA program, so if you have any sort of advice for me in doing this please let me know

Btw. where do people from Kamloops go snowboarding?

Cheers
