uh, you're not just east...you're as southeast as you can get. I don't think there are any resorts south of yours. I lived in mtns surrounding Chattanooga for 3 years and it only snowed one time that was deep enough to be any real fun.

Haha after I graduated we got 8" on Signal Mountain in Chattanooga. I hiked that bitch and rode it. I am pretty sure I am one of the very few people that can say they snowboarded down signal.

So, I went into both The Board Room and Alipne Ski Center yesterday. Those guys seem to know their stuff but they were spitting information so fast to me that I couldn't tell which way was up!

I do remember tho the guy at Board Room recommend I get something like a "Flow Verve"(this years model) sense I want to start on the mountain and progress into the park. They said it's better to get a board that you can progress into (which makes sense and I think thats why I got that burton twin 4 years ago)

I am a bit confused tho as there are 3 types of boards? (or maybe more?) All Mountain, Freestyle, and Park, right?

The guy said the Flow Verve was a park board.. but when I goggled it online, the other stores say its a freestyle board

They also said to get something with a board profile like the second one down on this list http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-between.html


Well, besides those questions my main one was if this board On Sale Santa Cruz Perfect 11 Get Money Snowboard 154 up to 55% off is anything like the one he recommended me? I think it looks sick and is much cheaper.. also if you know of any similar boards for around that price range too that would be great

again sorry for all the questions
