  1. it's either Kalypsa Medium or Suisside regular. what do i win?
  2. Definitely interested in either. We have to rally the troops.
  3. It was warm all the way to the top the day before but only the runs off the peak chair froze overnight. I started the day with a couple of runs down big red, the first few minutes of which was nice and firm but the rest of it was already somewhat soft when I got there. It was cloudy all day so it kept the snow from melting quickly. Things started softening up around 12:30 but the saddle stayed solid all day so I spent a bit of time there. Good grooming everywhere. Off-piste was also great once things got soft. I surfed the slush all the way down to the village while dodging a few thin and brown spots.
  4. I was at Whistler today thinking it was the last weekend but it's Blackcomb they're closing for spring. Heard they're switching it up this season to do some work on one of the Blackcomb lifts.
  5. hey you already have one of those!
  6. Choice of soundtrack is just as sweet as the riding. Thanks for the review.
  7. @philw, curious to see if you've put more days on your set up and what your impressions are. End of season sales might be a good time to snag a pair.
  8. I think I saw daveo there somewhere.
  9. @Lucie Lavoie, sorry they're sold.
  10. Do you mean full-isolation (e.g. Vist) plates or riser-type (e.g. Geckos) plates? I find that the ride quality that the latter improves on greatly outweigh what little sacrifice is given up in terms of low-speed handling.
  11. Mods please move this crap to off-topic. Joke I hopped onto a softy setup for the first time since last season and wasn't all too comfortable. I couldn't get the binding straps cranked tight enough to get the response I want without crushing my feet. @workshop7 what bindings do you use?
  12. daveo's would have been a good deal but 1xsculler is also letting go of his .
  13. I just got these set up on my boots. Is there a rule of thumb on how much tension there should be on the springs? How should it feel when carpet carving? I'd like to minimize the on-hill fiddling time.
  14. It goes beyond the gear right into the act. https://www.snowboardingforum.com/snowboarding-general-chat/245370-snowboarding-really-about-go-through-euro.html To the average slip and slider, carvers are kooky, nevermind being in alpine gear.
