  1. Besides the money? Scale appears to be how they are going to compete. Aren't we down to two options now for major resorts?
  2. We got to experience the culture shift as Okemo transitioned to Epic last year. Some good, some bad but you can't complain about the value and price. Hunter Mountain is part of the network now? If you are from NYC you know what to expect. Kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel for new mountains to consolidate.
  3. I had a fisherman friend who tried boarding in his rain slicks. When he fell, he would shoot down the hill like he was on a slip and slide. Funny for us. Not him though.
  4. Have you watched any of the videos on youtube of how to buckle ski boots? I didn't realize that you should leave the bottom buckles as loose as possible and leave my top buckles much looser than I used to, leaning more on the power strap to get a firm feel. All the cramping and shin pain disappeared this year.
  5. Can you review the Nirvana, Proteus, MK and Rev next? I really liked listening and watching.
  6. The 'starting over' period that I experience at the beginning of each season gets shorter and shorter year on year. Don't know why I flail so hard in November and December, but it was easier to get in a groove after a few days. Wish I could blame the board, as I did move from a Nirvana to a Proteus with the single sidecut radius, but I know that's not it. I do love that Proteus though. The big thing I learned this year was that being with other hard booters improves my riding more quickly than anything else. Hope to do more pack riding next year and maybe make it to MCC to see exponential improvement. Seeing the videos and photos of SES and MCC is very inspiring.
  7. So what do I rub?
  8. Found these on Ebay for $40 from Germany. Supposedly kids bindings that go pretty small. I ordered them already, but has anyone had any experience with these?
  9. I'm close to getting my son on a board and missing bindings that will go down to a 21.5 boot (Raichles). Looks like the F2 Tis will work. If someone knows of another way to get down to a small boot size or has a pair of F2s available, please let me know. Thanks
  10. Me again. Any idea if these go down to a 21.5 boot?
  11. Is that a golf course in the summer?
  12. I'll take the opposite side on this. I've been trying to find a board for my kid, but have boots and should have bindings soon. If anyone wants to borrow something to let their kid or friends try, I have the following. Just send me a shipping label and return it a week later. Raichle something or others in size 22.5 and 25. If all goes well I'll have a full setup with size 11 boots and a 160 ish board. Whatever it takes to get more people to have a taste. We all want the same thing here so let's make it easier.
  13. A few years ago I struggled to find camber boards without going custom. At least now there are some better options. Granted they have weird cutouts, nose/tail shapes that look like can openers, strange graphics and funky model names (Hot Knife, Black Snowboard of Death????). I consider it a step in the right direction as I can't do anything on a rocker board.
  14. What ever happened to the Pure Boarding guys? Wouldn't they have demo days and program they were pushing? Also, like what Kneel is saying. Think we all want the same thing here.
