Hi! I'm Alicia.
I've only been riding for three years and just starting to learn switch. I'm from Southern California so my main mountain is Mammoth and I love it! Unfortunately, it's becoming more and more "touristy"; I liked it better when it was privately owned and before Intrawest took over. They're building it up just like Whistler (which is an amazing, humongous mountain!) but the location doesn't fit their plan well.

Figured I'd add my resume to the stack.

Jon, 27 years old, originally from Boston but now I live in NH with my soon to be wife who is looking to start boarding this year. I started when I was 14, bought my first board (Liquid 159 with Burton bindings and Vans boots) for $225 with shoveling/lawn mowing money but then kind of gave it up when I was 18 and girls, booze and music took over. In college I refound the love for it then I did a year in Colorado, post graduation, with my cousin as a board bum working at a shop which yeilded my free pass which was good for 96 times on the mountain(s) that year. Few years later I'm back east, working like a sucker (engineer) and dreaming of snow once the weather gets cold. Colorado was what really determined my riding style, which I guess is free riding and getting low and digging trenches because not many people try to lay a sweet turn down anymore and a buddy in CO showed me how fun it can be, so I figured I'd give it a go. I *try* to ride park and do all the jibbing stuff but it takes a lot to get a big guy (6'6" 235) in the air spinning around. Board wise I have a few, Burton Canyon, Burton T6, K2 Recon Riser, Atomic Hatchet, I've found an affinity for Flow bindings so I have a few pair of those and I just got new Solomon Solace boots last year, nice and stiff, good for digging. If I'm not boarding, in the summer I'm golfing and following the sox. My mission in life is to now convince at least two of my younger cousins/nieces/nephews to pick up snowboarding then move to Colorado like I did.

I'm Portishead. 28. Los Angeles. I've been boarding since 1999, I used to ski before that. Most of my riding came the 2 years I went to college in Idaho. But I go a few times every season. Until this season. I'm planning to go a lot! Already got 4 or 5 trips planned. Just praying for snow! I started lurking here at the end of last season, but just signed up, and I got a few posts now. Looking forward to contributing and getting feedback and stuff. Cheers!

Hey, I'm 15, but about to turn 16 (in January) I live in West Virginia, I've always loved winter, and that's why I got into snowboarding, but I'd also like to learn surfing as well.

Until then, I spend my winters snowboarding, my springs grilling out, my summers wishing for winter and my falls camping. I'm currently working on getting sponsorship from Band-Aid and Tang. They haven't returned my calls.
This was so long ago! I'm 26 now and I live in Oregon. I'm still not German, but I have received a sponsorship offer from Preparation-H. I turned it down. The sticker they wanted me to put on my board was just too humiliating.
