  5. I have the 165 D.O. and consider it in the same company as my Kessler “ Rides” and BX. Still weighing it against a new Custom Donek Saber that is a beast!
  6. Hi there I have a Donek Free carve 1 171 with Catek OS1 bindings. I believe the board is from 2002. Easy to ride, I got it a number of years ago 2nd hand and probably put 15 hrs on it. 200.00 plus shipping. I can e mail or text pics if you are interested. Thanks Warren
  7. I would have stopped had I heard! I ride with headphones.
  8. My schedule changed so I was at Crystal yesterday as well. It's usually pretty easy to spot a hardbooter at Crystal since are very few but I did not see you. I was on the Kessler and rode from 1st chair at 8:30 until noon. Had obligations in the PM. You are right, once the sun hit it was pretty good! Its only my 2nd season at Crystal, coming from Stevens pass for 27 years but its really a killer MT. Whether its good groomers or steep pow runs in bounds or backcountry there is something for everybody just about everyday! Glad you were able to get a good day in.
  9. I see they changed the forecast, initially they were calling for clouds on Saturday. Probably a good decision on your part. Crystal is big ! Make sure to check out the view from the top of the Gondola. Mt. Rainer in your face!! Have a blast, it’s a great hill.
  10. I would advise going to Crystal Sunday instead of Saturday. Its shaping up to be sunny, starting off in the mid 20s and warming up to high 30s. The groomers should be outstanding. Not much at the summit except Alpental on a pow day. The rest of the Summit is Ok but runs are pretty short. Crowds have been shrinking lately and with any luck that will continue into the weekend. I'll most likely be up at Crystal Friday and Sunday, mostly a softboot guy, look out for an Alloy D0 165 or a Kessler BX.
  11. JI1, you would be 6th in line. Pm me with your phone number and I'll text you some pics and keep you posted. No firm commitments yet.
  12. I'm thinking about selling some soft boot carving stuff. 1 set of Bomber power plates, 1 set of Kessler Rocket Cross plates, 2 pairs of Catek FR2 bindings, 1 pair of Catek FR1 bindings. All well used but fully functional. I have all of the mounting hardware and some misc spare Catek parts. Thinking about 150.00 per item? Gauging interest at this point but the items are on Seattle Craigslist now. Straps/ buckles etc have been replaced on some of the bindings. If there is interest I will post pics or you can check out Seattle Craigslist. I'm pretty sold on the gecko plates and Now Overdrive bindings. I haven't used this stuff for a couple of seasons. Thanks! Everything appears to be sold except the Kessler Rocket Plate.
  13. Hey Lance, It was a pleasure meeting you and Phil the other day. Admittedly I was a little amped to get out on some good groomers after riding pow for the last few weeks. I did calm down some later! Gotta love that DO!. With Crystals new ownership I will now have the IKON pass which is good a several Colorado areas. Great excuse for my son and I to check it out, we have been talking about it for years. Be sure and get a hold of me next time you are up in this area, I'm in the process of building a 1500 sq ft garage/shop with an apartment above in Enumclaw, 42 min from Crystal. Headed back up tomorrow, should be good still, sunny with an 18 degree high.
  14. Hey Slopestar, I relocated and downsized to Enumclaw and crystal 1.5 years ago after riding at Stevens and Mt. hood for 27 years. I too, own a D.O.165 and conditions and schedule permitting, I will be at Crystal next Friday and Saturday. If I'm there, my gear will be in line before 8 and ill be in the lodge. Grey beard, black coat/ pants. if its a pow day look for a Kessler Ride, Donek Nomad or Fullbag Hammerhead. Crystal is pretty sick. Not the greatest carving hill but off piste its tough to beat. The D.O. is the real deal! Warren
  15. Finally was able to log some time on the DO 165. Variety of conditions from icy cobbled groomers to mid teens hero groom at Crystal Mt Thursday, 35/ 25 with Now Overdrive bindings. Super stable at speed, quick edge to edge, locked in on every turn. 27,000 vert in 3 hrs, 65 mph top speed on Thursday. Rode it back to back with my 168 Kessler Ride. The Kessler was faster could turn a little tighter but as far as edge hold , there was no difference. Absolutely would recommend as a soft boot carver and would buy again, probably will. Customer service is top notch as well, There was an issue with first one they sent, Don brought it to my attention and replaced the defective board quickly. Awesome board!
