Any Vancouver peeps wanna swap boards? Mine's a Nitro T1 156 park board. I'm lookin' for a more flexible jib board between 152 and 155 possibly RC or rocker. Check my post in Buy/Sell/Trade.

Also, does anyone know when there's a ski/board swap near VanCan?

There was the turkey sale up in whistler this weekend, and various other sales on 4th ave for most board shops, but don't really know of a specific gear swap, I also just move here so who knows there probly is one.

My roommate has like 5 boards but they are all 156 and above so that wouldn't help ya, sorry!

Not really, this is probably the better one I've found so far.
If you're on Facebook, join the page & group for Marmot Basin - they'll be posting info and news on a regular basis, and all the other members and fellow employees can probably help you out with local info as well.
There are a few guys on this forum who frequent Marmot Basin though, I'm sure they'll be more than happy to help you out.

Jasper to Revelstoke is about a 5-6 hour drive (in good weather). However, you are driving first down the Icefields Parkway, not only one of the most beautiful drives in Canada but along the Continental Divide so expect closures during snowstorms. The same goes for the Trans-Canada towards Revelstoke, you'll have to cross Kicking Horse Pass, and Roger's Pass - both of which close during heavy snowstorms sometimes for up to a couple days to clear off avalanche slides. Your best bet is to head out when you see the forecast is for a storm the next day... this way you get a good drive, and once you are in Revelstoke and the highway closes conveniently you can phone into work "Oh so sorry, the highway is closed, looks like I'll have to stay here and shred Revelstoke another day, so sorry I really wish I could be back for work" hehe

No trains but you could catch the Greyhound bus, but I don't recommend it. It's $100 each way, and takes 12 hours. Rent a car for 2 days with unlimited KMs (approx.$150) + gas ($100 total) = $250 split it with a couple buddies and it's way cheaper than the bus; and lots better.
