  1. Just received two new Contras, one for me and one for a friend! Red one is 174x21cm, 12m scr, the Matrix one is a 170x19.5cm 12m scr. Now I only need mother nature to cooperate a little!

  6. Went yesterday for 1st runs on 9 week old knee. Most singles paired up to make a double. There were a few who chose to ride alone. Mambo snow was good. Richards was firm. Snowmaking on 6 looks like it could open soon. Got in 10 runs before front leg was done. New one on back felt good.

  9. As Jack said... "There can be only one"! I guess we will see. A special thanks to IVAN at i-carve.com, he is top notch and very easy communication. Purchasing is simple!! Do not hesitate to reach out, purchasing globally these days is easy and fun.. my board was at my door in 3 days! better than 90% of buying in USA... amazing.. typical custom fees are around the 40 to 50 dollar mark for a high end purchase. Thanks again Ivan!

  11. Rides great of course! Everything you would expect from a Coiler, only bigger. The 194 was the board of choice for my final runs when the resort announced the closure in March (with three hours notice). Hard on the legs for sure, cumbersome at slow speeds, but a totally exhilarating ride!

The Carve model has non-adjustable elastomers in place of springs. The Carve Pro has springs. Big thanks to http://i-carve.com for supplying these new plates for demo.

  14. Oh ya... This one too. Jasey-Jay TCX 166 T4 titanal soft boot carver! 17 metre average radius, 30cm waist, stiff as ****... This one was a bit of of a collaboration between Bruce Varsava, Jasey-Jay Anderson, and John Gibson. Bruce had so sell Jasey-Jay on the contra sidecut idea, John had to design the actual sidecut, and Jasey-Jay built the board. Thanks again to the team! This is my third custom board with a 30cm plus waist. I think this is the one I've been waiting for. I hope that with this design and the advanced materials and construction techniques, I'll finally be

  16. I disagree, mildly. I think you can have fun as an amateur (aren't we all!) with any amount of time per week/month/year in alpine snowboarding. You can go out and have fun on the snow with whatever time you have. If your goals are higher than only having fun, then your time commitment scales appropriately. I see an extremist attitude in many hobbies, and I don't like it. It's grown as internet/media has focused us into ever-shrinking niches. There's always someone who will invest more time than you, and they may view your time invested as a lack of commitment. If I go bowling with

  19. So if they Scan your pass, it counts as a day, I guess. meh A whoopin' 716' of vertical today. Once Ice and I got ahold of our passes, we spied lift 1 was shut down, due to 60mph gusts at the top, and no visibility. I was game to take a few on 2, to reacquaint myself with my board. Despite the 10'' of fresh, Turkey Creek was horribly firm and scratchy, and full of carnage. we called it after 2, due in part to 4 people ,4' apart in various states of disarray and distress, stopped in the middle of the trail(catwalk) creating a wall across one of the narrowest parts of the trail.

This Friday the 11th is National Corduroy Appreciation Day, as proclaimed by the (currently in recess) National Corduroy Appreciation Club.

  24. Between reduced riding time, kids getting older and space I am getting rid of all these. Preferred local sale to avoid shipping. But I will ship to US and Canada too at your expense. Prices are in USD for US shipping and $CAD for CDN shipping. Prices are cheap as I got a deal, bought as package, am paying it fwd, etc. Would be great for young racers... Paypal gift preferred. Will take TD2 stuff on trade. **SOLD**Board#1 $25 ***SOLD***Coiler 181 PRC - 1st gen titanal and it shows. Built for former Can National team rider. BEAT 23.2W

  25. Just found on classified a copy of my first alpine board. For 30$, couldn’t resist! Thanks @JFChamp for the help... I was following the snowboard association training to become a snowboard teacher (probably in 1989). The guys in charge were hard booting, one of them was importing those ATS boards from Europe. I bought one right away and sold my Turquoise/pink Kemper Freestyle. I had a PJ6 after and can’t remember all the other ones after. Anybody else still have his (her) first alpine board? Good memories... Now I wonder if I’ll risk it on the mountain or just keep it as a wall

  26. https://mtntactical.com/exercises/mnt110-leg-blaster/ I will second the above post. Now for fun, try to get through a few rounds of the mini leg blasters without curling up in the corner in the fetal position sucking on your tear soaked thumb. These. Are. Deceptively BRUTAL. But highly effective. 30 seconds of rest between. They are also quite humbling, you may need to work up to the prescribed number of sets, as well as down to the painfully short rest period. I have found these to be much more betterer than stupid heavy squats for me. Your mileage may vary. In the interim, hit up

  27. Okay Sculler. Listen carefully this time... You got a lot of advice last season but it seems you only heard what you wanted to hear. I'm not re-reading the entire thread right now, but I doubt anyone would have recommended doing only one exercise with heavy weights all summer. For this season, don't stress; you are stronger than last year, you surely have more muscle mass with all those dead lifts. However, now you have to teach those new muscles how to snowboard. Do that by riding. Your new muscle fibres pretty much only know how to deadlift right now but they will adapt quickly.

  28. Ummm,deadlifts? Deadlifts are a posterior chain exercise. They don't do anything for your quads. For that you need to be squatting (ideally) or at least wall sitting. And quite honestly, 3 sets every other day isn't going to do anything. That's not even close to enough volume to encourage any sort of strength gains.

  31. I used to ride that board's spiritual predecessor (the Cobra) and have a Swift right now. Most NS boards ride fairly similar (with the East and the Big gun being outliers). They're superb for powder and tight trees. They also are very well made, damp and somewhat heavy. They can handle icy groomers but it's not what they're good at. There's a run in Copper that I cannot turn on without sliding out on my NS. My Alloy OTOH has no problems on it. All this to say that I like my NS boards BUT they do have some drawbacks. Mainly the sidecut is weird. It's short-wide-short meaning you get turnin

  37. Awesome and helpful. It will make the right rider very happy. I'm definitely lazy and have suspect technique. When my son lets me ride the Interceptor, it converts lazy into glorious speed and nasty turns that make you want to do naughty things like cut the tags off pillows and cuss in front of your grandma...

  40. Sadly Troy passed away yesterday Nov.10 2020 after a valiant battle with medical issues. He was one of the original pioneers of snowboarding after beginning "sticking" in 1977. One of the fist to ride Roundtail Wintersticks with a strap binding. Riding in Little Cottonwood Canyon across the street from Alta. My great and dear friend is now styling and shredding it up in heaven. If we are able to ride this season, I am dedicating every ride to you my friend. You will be missed.

I really want to come see all y'all, but I'm doing my best to wait for more runs. Got out to Vail on Friday and it was reasonably fun. Decent snow, a few runs, and nobody acting a fool. Rachel is till a good month away from skiing shape so trying to find the motivation to go solo is tough.
