it's almost that time of year again. the testing of who can get the lowest, who can smile the biggest, who can last the longest, and who can eat the most sugar after lunch! oh wait, there's also the contest between bobble and bionicman for the camera curse award! :biggthump

weds, FEB 1, 2017 9:30am - ?  (and i have NOT seen the lift started before 9:30 yet this year. silly vail policies/rules)

afton alps www.aftonalps.com lift tickets are $48 on the preferred program, $53 not on the program

bring your lunch or money to purchase food. as usual, there will be plenty of homemade food from the sugar group.

invite everyone you know who gets mad anytime they leave more than a pencil line in the snow! or anyone who wants to leave only a thin line.

36 degrees the night before Is the forecast righ now, looks like it's going to be colder the next week. 

Probably kinda late to reschedule but it might be sketchy to be on a carve board this coming Wednesday.

The good ol', dependable, Minnesota January Thaw. Add to that 3"+ of wet snow.

ugh. the snow absolutely sucks right now. i was at afton all weekend, and it's way too soft to hold any sort of aggressive carving. sure, we COULD right more upright, but that isn't the picts i posted above! ;-)

let's reschedule. i'm checking with afton right now on the next few weds to make sure there isn't any big events on their calendar. once i hear back, i'll reset the date. right now, i'm hoping for weds, 2/1 as it looks like the snow has a chance to be in decent shape again by then.

I just put the really stiff gray tongue back in this is my front boot. I used them tonight at Buck, I really miss the stiffer boot. The stiff tongues seem to make these cants or even if the back is locked in irrelevant.

Pot-shots from the chair lift.

Thanks for the good time and good turns. You got to love playing weekday hooky; It was almost as if the place was open, just for us!

Next year...

      Swoard Extremecarver 3rd generation 168cm Medium flex. $400CAD + shipping or best offer (was about $300USD when I wrote this post)
      Excellent condition, as I have only used it on rare occasions on perfect groomers early in the morning. It's been sitting in my locker for a few years, so it's time for me to get rid of it.

      A little run on one of my Fullbag longboards, specificaly tuned for carving. We filmed this at sunset, late last fall, after an afternoon of slalom skateboard practice. First experiment filming with an iPhone on a gimbal. It was cold, sub zero celcius, thus the winter jacket and snowboard helmet. I will try to add more little clips of pavement carving on skateboards in this thread, once in a while.

      The 177 FC is a special board.
      The nose is big for a carving board. When you bent the board in the turn, the curve continue perferctly in the curve on the nose and the edge  get bigger.You can test that by sitting on snow and push on borad.
      It is like a variable edge size , if it is possible?  When you go flat the contact edge is smaller than when you turn on the edge by pushing. Maniability  at flat  and longer edge  grip when you turn, this is for me a very interresting concept for a carving board, and radius 9-12 short radius.
      The result of this concept, is the board turn very short in carving for a 177 , and maniable board at flat, but the big surprise is the possibility  to carve  at higher edge inclinations in wet snow. That is the first board that allows me to carve almost in wet snow like in middle hard snow. And for me it is a revolution.Never i was able to me to do that wich an other board so easely.
      For me I find at ent  the solution to carve at the end of the season, so i can now carve carve carve until the last days.
      This board is a big discovery, a very interresting concept, and the solution to finish the season  by carving no matter if the snow is wet and high temperature. 
      If you have a probleme on wet snow !!!!!!

      First of all, this is a review thread. Use it for test ride comments and civilized discussion. If you want to flame, use "some prototypes" thread in the carving section... 
      Intro: 
      This was designed to be an ultimate freeride/carver for hardboots, or softies for those who like very forward angles. 
      The inspiration for this board came from few excellent, yet not perfect, alpine free ride boards that me and few local riders have tried and frrm versatility of modern slalom boards (OES SL included). For few years I tried to convince Alexey that he needed this type of board in his lineup and that we possibly could redesign one of the existing boards to fit the bill. However, now he decided to develop it from scratch - new molds, new geometry. I've designed the geometry (so blame it on me if it didn't work), while the core thickness and construction I left to Alexey. 
      Specs: 
      Length: 167 
      Waist: 23 
      SCR: 8-10 
      Flex: M, S and XS, for now. 
      Construction: Kevlar composite, wood core
      Weight: 3.9 kg, the heaviest M 
      The sidecut goes high up into the decambered nose, creating heavy taper (less decamber at the tail). However, there's almost no taper at the contact points, flat running. I'm hoping to achieve the best of both worlds this way - carveability and float in pow. 
      The prototypes are here!
