Hello all the boarders from around the world!

I'm not only new to this forum but to Vancouver, where I live now, as well. I recently moved from the Netherlands to Canada to live my dreams. I've been snowboarding for more than 15 years now, and even went heli-boarding twice (Panorama and Golden). I might have been a 'pro-boarder' but since I had my back bone fractured in '98 I had to slow things down a bit. Snowboarding is one of the main reasons to move to Vancouver, it's a big step but it will be worth while.

Since I'm still searching for a job and I don't know anybody around here it's hard te get in contact with people, so I was wondering whether there're boarders in de Vancouver region who would like to take me to one of the ski resorts around here. If you would like to do so or just would like to know more about me, just sent me a message.

Cheers

I'm originally from Toronto, Canada but now reside in Sydney, Australia. I'm pretty ancient in that I've been boarding for about 17years from back in the day at Blue Mountain and even Glen Eden (shiver). My experience as follows: 2 concussions, 1 separated shoulder, 3 dislocations, numerous tree hugging incidents (only happpened in BC for some odd reason) and a kicker where I ended up in some womans lap while she was waiting in queue for the lift.

Default Hello from NW Washington

Hey to all.

I've been riding for about 2 seasons,but I go up a lot so I think I have a pretty good handle on it.Not into the super hard stuff or the park yet,but getting there.I live in Bellingham WA(about 1 hour west of Mt.Baker)so I have it pretty good.

Hey Heather and Becky,give a shout if you come up to Baker anytime soon.We ride there once a week(Thurs,Fri,or Sat).We are thinking of making a Stevens Pass run sometime soon now that the passes are back open(for now!!).Crazy snow this year,huh!

This is a really cool site...glad to be here.

Hey cool, nice to meet you! Haven't tried Stevens or Baker yet (we've been going to White Pass). How do you think they compare to White Pass for newbies?

Nice too meet you too.

I haven't been to White Pass yet,but want to check it out(maybe a spring ride).

I think Stevens might be a bit more "newbie friendly" as far as the runs go.Bakers green runs are pretty flat and there really are not that many(they are all kind of in the same little area).Most of the runs are blues,but they are not too bad.It's kind of easy/harder/easy thing,so it's a really good place to push your riding.

We went up to Baker yesterday and it was soooooo sweet!!!!It was sunny spring conditions with lots-o-powder left.Great riding.

Hope you got to go up this weekend,I think it was pretty sick everywhere.I'll give a shout if my buddies and I can get our crap together and organize a road trip

My name is Jason. I currently live in Rochester, NY.

I've been boarding for 7 years, although my first year was the only year where I went more than twice. Conditions here in Rochester pretty much suck and it's difficult to find the time and money to drive out to Vermont more than once or twice a season. Next season I'll be looking into more often. My wife is getting serious about it now and we're going to be buying her some gear here in the next few weeks.

Places I have snowboarded:
Oregon: Mt. Bachelor
Colorado: Vail, Beaver Creek, Monarch, Breckenridge, Keystone
New York: Bristol
Vermont: Mt. Snow

Sup y'all. My name is Kevin, I live in Kelowna BC and my home mountain is Big White. 24yr's old blah blah blah. I've been riding for about 11 years now and skied for 4 years before that. Slowly built my knowledge about equipment maintenance over the years enough to get a job as a ski/board techy for a couple Heli-skiing lodges up North. I'll keep out the names of em for now but yes, there are fringe benefits like free riding with the job. Been doin some reading on this forum and I'm likin what I'm reading, some good info on here so I'm lookin forward to learning more. You can never know enough.
Aside from riding, I'm a big 4x4er. Not mud though, more of a rock crawler competition kinda guy. Anyways, that's me. Cheers.

I live in Syracuse...I think u may be getting some snow tonight. Bristol will be running for awhile. I was thinking of going Thursday but will wait until after our meet next week.

Anyway, enjoy guys
You're definitely right about the snow. We didn't get much, but any little bit helps. If we hadn't spent 2.5 hours shopping for gear for my wife last night we would probably head out there tonight. Might have to wait till next week for some night boarding or next weekend. Might even play hookie some day coming up if we get some decent snow.
