Hello

I'm Rochelle in Bellingham WA and frequent Mt. Baker and sometimes Blackcomb. I started riding in '93 I think. I'm 47. I enjoy the b/c using a split board. Always looking for partners who like the double blacks and powder.

Hi, I am 30 and Ive been riding for 3 years. This is the first year I've really been serious about progressing, and Im taking a set of lessons to help me with that. Im halfway through and making huge progress. My husband and kids ride with me, and Im slowly convincing some of my girls to give it a shot too. We don't live far from the mountains so we often ride Marmot, Lake Louise, Kicking horse, and my favourite... Sunshine Village.

Hello all!

I've been snowboarding for almost three years now and I'm hooked, so much so that my girlfriend thinks I spend more time on the mountain than I do with her. I really wish that I'd been introduced to the sport sooner, I live in the Seattle area and don't know how none of my friends or family were not into snow sports. I've checked this site out a couple times over the past few days and decided I had to become a member. These forums are great, I love the wealth of information and friendly people here.

Hi, im 19 and im a freshman at a cmmunity college by me. I live in s/e michigan and ride at alpine valley. I've only been to brighton once and i thought it was tiny. I went to boyne once and i liked the powder but the pipe had either tiny rails or rediculously huge jumps and a giant pipe. I've been riding for 10 years and have been getting better in the park the last few years. I ride a 156 burton custom with triad bindings. I wear all oakley gear because i used to work there and got stupid deals on it. I love oakley goggles and glasses. I ride about 6 days a week and am an instructor at alpine.

Hi, I'm over 35, a female, living in Toronto. I started snowboarding in Jan this year. When I sweat at the top of the hills and the cold breeze blow over to my face and body, it feels great like having a great beer. I'm practicing turns now. Have the common problems of swifting linking turns to pendulum. Hope that I could get over it before this season is over

I'm Larry from southeastern michigan. Just got into the sport a few weeks ago and love it! I kinda crossed over from summer sports so i'm really liking doing something in the winter. I've hit the hills a few times this past week, and now that the weather is cold again, I hope to ride later this week too. I'm going to cali for spring break and plan on hitting up mt high. I look forward to learning and using info from this site to progress my skills and contribute whatever I can.

Jonesy - 27, live in FL. Learned to ski in Park City and Brighton when I was 10. Took a 12 year hiatus, picked up skiing the Poconos and Adirondacks when I moved to NJ for a job out of college. Skiing got too easy out east compared to out west.

Winter '04 or '05: Holiday Valley near Buffalo, NY
March 14, 2006: Beaver Creek, CO
March 19, 2006: Purchased '05 Ride Decade 160cm
Winter '06/07: Poconos, Killington, Belleayre (NY).
Jan 2008: Beaver Creek + Vail for two days
April 2008: Beaver Creek + Vail for 7 days
April 2009: Beaver Creek + Vail for 7 days
Jan 19, 2010: Purchased 2010 T.Rice C2BTX
Feb 4-10 2010: Heavenly/Northstar/Kirkwood for 5 days

Now it's my favorite sport! Accidentally bought a snowboard instead of the kite-surfing gear I'd planned for the year LOL.

Hey everyone

I'm Aaron,
In Reno, NV and I'm 23.
and I decided to start snowboarding a few weeks ago.
I've gone over to Boreal once and I'm taking their lessons.
Do 3 lessons and get a season pass.

Late to the sport, maybe, but it's fun so far.
Thanks for having this forum.

Later.
