I am Alex Davis, and I live in Columbia, SC. I know, odd place for a snowboarder. I'm currently a student at University of South Carolina, Mechanical Engineering major. I love baseball, I dreamt of playing it almost all my life. You might ask "how'd I get into snowboarding?" A few years ago, my church went on their annual ski trip over new years and I decided to go. I skipped the option to ski and went straight to snowboarding-I took to it immediately. It just seemed so easy to me. I loved it! Unfortunately, I only get to go during that trip which its only a few days out of the year.
I guess that's me and snowboarding in a nutshell.

Hey all, My name is Kyle from Greensboro NC and Im 22 (about to hit 23). I'm going to celebrate by having my first serious season of boarding after a very long time out. Recently bought some decent gear and started losing crazy weight to help out too...Other hobbies would be learning Japanese and discovering new music. Started boarding on a family trip because skis...looked a little silly. Never regretted that decision...breezed through snow school and still love it today.

Shoot me a message if you like, love to make new friends!

Hello everyone,
My name is Roger, 36, and live in Basingstoke, UK. Started snowboarding in 1999 when I worked at this place with a Bonkers invention called a "dry ski slope" (!Crazy Ass Brits!).
Had a great group of people to work and ride with there and because this stuff was hard and unforgiving you learnt to be very aware of your edges (snow is so forgiving). Anyways, this started me off and got me hooked!
Got to ride for free after work and days off so would be out riding a lot. From there came the vacations around Europe - Andorra, Austria and France.
I have been dying to get out to America to try the different terrain, snow, and trees, but commitments and air fares have always got in the way. 2010 I hope will be the year. Any information on good mountains to visit around Denver CO. in March for freeride and trees please let me know.
The Jay Peak posts look awsome, reminds me of my early trips away with a big group. Always a laugh to be had.

Whats up world. My name is mark. John (Johhnyblaze) finally got me on here. I just moved to philly from nc with the hopes of finding some good riding out here, only to find nothing but man-made ice, so hopefully I can get steered in the right direction from the site.
Cheers!

Hey. My name's Collin. I'm 13 and I got my first snowboard when I was eight years old, and got my first real board about two seasons ago and I've been going to the local mountain regularly since then. I'm definitely not the best rider on the mountain, but I'm more experienced than a lot of riders. My favorite place to hangout on the mountain is in the terrain park hitting jumps, boxes and rails. I also skateboard and play soccer. I decided I'd join a snowboarding forum to talk to some snowboarders before the season starts.

Hey all,
Just joined your lovely forum here, usually spend more time on alpinezone since I am located in CT and spend most of my time snowboarding-wise going up to VT. I am not sure what my problem is but I have had a serious snowboard jonesing lately...maybe its because of my situation. I did the family thing early on so I didn't get my fix during my 20s. Now inching closer to 40(I still have a couple years) and my older kids getting closer to graduation I plan on getting as many days as I can afford. Got about 6-7 days in last year, mostly at Okemo and Magic. This year I definitely want to get farther north, preferrably Sugarbush. Will let you guys know how it goes....
