Default Hello From Whitefish

Hi everyone! When I choose to do something I do it full guns and I just got into snowboarding and love it. The only thing I regret is that I didn't get into snowboarding sooner. I live in Whitefish Montana. I try to ride everyday before and/or after work. I read everything I can about snowboarding and I am goofy foot and like riding switch. I now have two NS decks. A Proto Hdx and a wide SL (NS calls it a legacy, i.e. whatever) I have GNU mutant bindings (mounted 15 degrees duck) and Burton boots. I found I like a wide 23" stance on the Proto. My favorite move so far is a toeside reverse falling leaf (people who know me on the mountain will know who I am from that lol). I have met many cool, helpful and friendly people on big mountain and hope to meet many more here and at other riding destinations. My friends and family call me BearPaw.

Hi friends, My name is Ryan and I'm 30 from north eastern PA. Montage mountain is my home mountain. Getting back into it after a few years off. Teaching my girl how to do it. Took her out for the first time a few days ago. We work crazy hours so it is hard to find time to go. Glad I rented a board and now I know 100% I prefer park boards with flex. I gave my old Burton to her because it's a tad to small for me. I like small boards but a 141 is a tad to small for me. Lots of good info on this website I like what I see so far. Hope to keep learning.

Hi, Windsufing sounds like fun. It went a hell of a lot better than I thought it would. She took the ski lift like a champ and went straight down the bunny hill. Told her she needs to turn and stop. She caught her toe edge and face planted. I warned her about that. I'm just letting her do her own thing. She is sore but I warned her about that. Hope she stays with it....so I have a riding partner.

Hey guys,

New to the forums. From SF, but love to get into the snow when I can. Love watching snowboarding vids, so if you have any favorites, send them my way.

Todd

Hey gents, My name is Mike, but everyone calls me Butters. I'm 27 and from Atlanta, GA. I am completely new to snowboarding. Just bought my first board. It's a Nidecker Smoke. We are taking a trip in march to Steamboat Springs anyone have any advice, as far as gear for the trip or just about steamboat in general? Just an offer, but my family owns a screen printing and embroidery shop, so if anyone wants their gear personalized let me know I'll give ya a good deal.

KCCO!

Edit: Just wanted y'all to know I wasn't trying to spam my business, that's not what I'm about at all. I am about helping and since I have the means I just wanted to offer it up.

Awesome forum. Learning a lot. I'm 48 and have been boarding for three years. When I wanted to teach my son to ski, he said, "that's for old dudes." I didn't want to be "the old dude" so we both took snowboarding lessons. We get out about 10 times a year, mostly in the Poconos. Thanks for all the great info.
