Hi Ali, big WELCOME to Bomber Online!!   You found the right place to get things carving!!

 

Please check out some of the files for new carvers on the site. 

 

You might also check the "ride board" for your area.   It is ideal to find a local alpine rider to help with gear and tips.

Ali,

 

Welcome to Bomber and welcome to carving.

 

There is actually a great group of people who ride MSLM. I try and ride ther whenever I am around (next date Saturday Jan 31st) ... There are a few local riders on the hill who are better connected than I when it comes to gear.

 

A place to watch might be: http://forums.bomberonline.com/index.php?/topic/38676-mslm/

I post here when I am trying to see what is happening at MSLM.

 

Also; there is an event on Friday Jan 30th - details here: http://forums.bomberonline.com/index.php?/topic/40878-southern-ontario-session-2015-you-should-come/

Good luck and looking forward to riding with you

Hey Dingbat, was chatting with the boys yesterday about Mt. Blanc - not going because of SOS which is the same weekend. I chose SOS because it is close to family (not that you are not all my family too) and I want to see my sister and get her out onto the hill for a day. She has promised to hit MSLM with me on the Saturday which is exciting. You not coming to SES????

That's cool Tabby. I'm psyched for you getting a day with your sis. Mine and her family were just up for MLK weekend. Love riding with the family. Have fun!

 

One girl, one board, one power!

 

Monk, Great that you're gonna get out with some other riders. Makes allllll the difference. Relax and keep your head up.

How's MSLM?

Local hill (Brimacombe) was terrible today, hard and glaring ice spots at times and lots of rocks.

Considering going up to MSLM tomorrow if good conditions.

Thanks

Zone you saying nothing has changed sine they opened ? Sir Sam's in Haliburton was pretty good a few weeks ago and Brim members get 50% off lift tickets.

2 weeks ago was decent though few not many runs open and a few rocks, last week not bad, and today I left after three runs , rocks all over the bowl., esp since I'll be at SOS next Friday.

Monk; Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday. We usually aim to be there for first chair lift and often end up on Promonade on the Moonstone side of the hill. Depending on what is left in my legs after SOS, I might be riding slow ... but my excuse is that I am hanging with the sister!
