I pretty much think about snowboarding 24/7. It is just the best thing! From deep light pow, steep tree runs, to sunny rad park days, I love it all. I've got a bit of new gear that I bought right before I left the US (outerwear, new MTX+BTX deck, new bindings) that I just can't wait to ride. So I'm definitely already counting down the days till the Southern Hemi season starts...this forum will be a good way of tying me over till June.

Let me know if anyone is around the south island of NZ and keen to meet up and shred this winter!
G'day. I'm in Oz. Tell me about NZ winters for boarding! Have you been to Mt Ruapehu before? I'm trying to get over there in September for my first season, what's it like around then, do you know?

Talking Snowboarding Dreams

Hello from San Francisco, California, USA.

I'm a first season boarder after being raised on skis. I will NEVER go back!!!
I think there are two weeks left in our season, maybe three...then off
to New Zealand? I wish.

Hope everyone gets out there at least one last time!

Hey all, been snowboarding for 15 years and im only 22!! I manage one of the biggest snowboard shops in the US here in Rochester, NY and i love every second of it. Had a pretty decent year traveling out west once and riding a ton out here. Just got back from Jay Peak in VT last week to get in another week of riding before the snow was gone.

Default snowstoked in la

hi all! I'm from culver city (LA), ca. Mammoth is my home mountain. i'm 29 (woman) and this is my first season. I was fortunate enough to have been able to board 3 days out of every 2 weeks since December, which helped me progress faster. I don't think there is anything more beautiful or exhilarating than flying down the mountain. I'm totally snowstoked, i dream about boarding when i sleep. my season is almost over and i just want to chase the snow.

peace and love

Hi,

Im moving from Arizona to Oregon this summer and am looking forward to doing more snowboarding in OR than I can here in AZ. This forum has been a great help to me so far picking out some gear, and Im sure I will keep coming to it as I progress in the sport.

Hey Shredchick. I'm from the states but I'll be in New Zealand from late June to November - on the South Island in fact. Doing a semester at U. of Otago so I'll be in Dunedin. Pretty stoked to be able to get credit toward graduating next May and be able to do a southern hemisphere season at the same time.

From what I understand Dunedin is about 4 hours from Queenstown/Wanaka. I plan to head there as many weekends as possible, hoping I can find a way up there. Would definitely like to meet up and shred - I like everything from park to powder. Where are you located?

I'm Phil from Northwestern Wyoming. I'm 24 and am in law enforcement.

Just finished with my first season as a snowboarder. Co-workers got me into it. There is a resort about 90 minutes from me in Montana but I can't get there as frequently as I want. In the meantime, we all go to a ski hill in the national forest that was closed this year. We walk up the mountail for every run (heck of a work out). It will be open next season so the lifts will be nice.

I love snowboarding so much that I'm going to sell my skiis this summer to get a second board next fall.

Current setup:

Burton Mayhem 162
Burton Mission WTF
Burton Moto boots
