  1. My passion for the edge has followed me almost my whole life and it took me to a lot of places and helped me meet a lot of good people (in real life and online). I am grateful for the journey so far and I hope it will continue in the same fashion for years to come. Here is my latest clip. I hope you enjoy it! I always appreciate a good feedback. I haven‘t been very active here lately, but I am always ready to exchange some ideas or give some advice. Just contact me via Facebook or Instagram. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WevV_8EvYso&t=14s

  2. Probably for me to be accurate. 14 months after my injury and a half year after cancer surgery I hit slopes at Soda Spring resort where I took my first snowboard lesson decades ago. I started on the absolutely easiest beginners slope and slowly worked up to the “steepest” slope on the picture. Of course my legs were like noodles and people around scared me. It will not be like before I will just carefully slide the hills but just to be outside on the snow was like small miracle. Ladia my old log in just dos not work

  3. This is pretty much my only trick. The crowds love it and not many people can do it, but it's not that hard to learn and it's not dangerous. These are my best tips, give it a try. As long as you end up on your feet it looks cool. What the heck else are you gonna do with all that kinetic energy at the end of your run? Don't waste it on a skid stop, you came out to make turns right? There are at least a few variations to the carved 360, I classify them according the shape of the track they make (the perfect circle, the spiral, the teardrop...). More on those below, what's described he

  4. Today we confirmed that a Warren Miller film crew will be at this years Montucky Clear CUT. They will be filming Tuesday - Thursday. I was concerned about how they have portrayed some of the fringe segments of winter sports in the 80’s and early 90’s. I was assured that they were on board with promoting our support work for Turner Mountain, the community of Libby and our sport of carving. We are really excited for this opportunity to showcase alpine carving on national media.

  11. Well, today it is exactly one year since my accident and 4 months since cancer surgery. Knock on the wood. My eye situation is still the same. 3&4 cranium nerves are permanently damaged. So only hope for some kind of improvement is eye surgery. Appointment with surgeon next week. Upper right side of the body is still very painful I am not even sure if it is still from that shoulder. But I still not give up. I bought new body armor, new FIS approved helmet it is heavy and no any vents and also orange Visually Impaired bib. Yes like this stop some 70 years idiot. I just need neck brace. I

  15. Just some easy turns on some greens at Vail. The two softbooters are young bucks from Miami up for their first season on the hill. I saw their shiny new Doneks and we took some turns. They are pretty solid for just starting out! Ryan Knapton has quite the pull on the younger crowd for sure.

  18. We have had enough unpleasant ice carving days this year at Spirit Mt, that I decided to ask Bruce if he would make me an ice specific board to see if I can find some carving joy on all ice. Something super damp with extra rubber, a softer flex and, of course, metal. A small-ish scr to keep my speed down, because I don't like going fast on ice, but enough length to smooth out some of the roughness. The ice board cometh yesterday. A super damp, mellow yellow 166 Contra, 20w, 10.5scr. Thanks to @RCrobar and @Technick for letting me use the logo. Rode it today in 2-4" of groo

  19. The crew was there Tuesday - Thursday. They also brought Noah Elliot (Para-Athlete) of Winterstick Snowboards. They worked with many of the group including @monodude! Sounded like they will also be using some of the video shot by Vault Media. Our very own @Jcar shot some amazing GoPro footage for Chris Patterson that will likely be used. @Jcarand Chris know a lot of the same people in the film industry so Jcar got put to work. Working with Jcar was super fun and I think we captured what it is all about. We had 2 young guns at the event, I think they were both 26yo, Chester Fox of

  20. I've got 14 days on my K168 now. No more excuses to procrastinate. The K168 is a really really really good board. I like it a lot. My Contra 178 12m is a really really really good board too. I like it a lot. How do they compare? Background. I got a used K168 last spring after our Covid shutdown. Got it from @workshop7who I think got it from @MR. JOHN DEERE !(?). As far as I know it's a stock K168. Normal white topsheet, not p-tex topped. I wanted to find out what all the K168 hullabaloo was about. I don't like "race" boards, so I didn't expect to like it, let alone be good eno

  21. Together we, the AlpineSnowboarder community, have donated over $3200 this year and over $5100 all time to USASA and USSRT combined, through subscriptions, classifieds donations, and merchandise purchases. You are helping to make youth racing possible, you are supporting the US national team, and keeping this weird sport alive! Also, ad revenue has allowed us to directly donate $100 each to USSRT members Robby Burns, Iris Pflum, Cody Winters, and now Lily Janousek. Let's all hope for a great 2021!

  23. I know that a high energy impact with a tree is more than likely going to tear my aorta and I will bleed out in a matter of minutes, and my helmet ain't gonna do jack shit. It drives me nuts hearing news reports that the deceased was wearing a helmet, and it didn't save their life. Really? No shit. I don't wear one for that, I wear mine for the myriad of lower and medium energy impacts that I have experienced through the years due to my choices for recreating. I have to wear a hardhat on my jobsites during certain phases of work, one of my least favorite things to do, despite all of the cool

I think I made like 90 turns down Roulette on one of my runs today. That was rather new, and, frankly, quite exciting. Going to the other extreme next weekend, and breaking out the big Virus in honor of Andre the Giants return to Lovey. Today we had a nice little crew out, in addition to our usual cast of characters, Hil 007, Ice, Ink, Katie, Slopestar, Miss Shelly(showing unprecedented amounts of speed and aggression) and beau Jason,

  29. Let me join the party. My daughter designs the graphic and I manage to put things together. Snowboard graphic is a bit tricky because one should consider the location of insert and binding which will cover some part of the graphic during riding, as well sidecut. Each graphic takes about a month of my spare time to do it. The rainbow/people is the 1st board. The rabbit/watermelon didn't build. The black & white is the latest one which has arrived last Friday. Take some time to post it on board porn.

  30. Catek revival project done. calling them Tribute Bindings (Tenacious D ref intended ) All parts will swap onto OS1 platform. SS cups for adjustments screws so no dimpling issues. 2 set screws to hold the toe bail up. adjustment ring with 2.5 degree increments of adjustment. Sphere nut replaced with Sphere bolt with Nyloc nut to prevent kingpin loosening. binding must be used in conjunction with the Polycarbonate plate which mounts to the board alone and prevents and corrects insert suck. if interested please contact me. Cheers. john

  33. Another most excellent day today! I need a nap. I just realized that since The Dude left, I'm the grizzled old veteran of the group. How did that shit happen? There is a 4 decade spread between myself and the youngest rider in our posse today. Again, damn! We did a really nice job of laying waste to the practice field, turtle creek, and roulette. A few of us hit firecut for the first time this year. Narrow groom, undulating, and funky light left us feeling a little "Meh, not so much", so we were one and done there. Some of us finished with 1 on Richards, Whilst others were way m

  34. I'll turn 75 later this year and I'm having too much fun to give it up, especially racing. Yesterday I raced on skis (finished 8th overall out of 48 racers of all ages) and on the board (fastest of only 3 overall). The day before I logged a few hours on a newly acquired 158 F2 Speedster Slalom board. Very responsive and a blast to ride. A friend offered to video a couple of runs.

  35. Okay... While helping a tourist figure out his Donek today, the opportunity presented itself and I got a few seconds of video. Not my best turns of the day, and not the steepest runs in Revelstoke, but it's something to back up all my trash talk... Set your volume at maximum for the full experience.

  45. Coiler contra review Please note: This will be lengthy and detailed. I asked Bruce if I could post my review and his response to it. So here you go. Background: I was an east coast high school / college ski racer, and began alpine carving in 1996, mostly at Loveland in Colorado. Now I ski, soft boot snowboard, and alpine carve in New Mexico. 5’3, 135 pounds. I’ve been on many boards, ranging from a 162 Sims slalom board to a Sims 188 Burner. I rode Burton Factory Primes, Sims, Nideckers and Doneks for years, and got on a Kessler once, but for the las

  47. At a local sledding hill with my kid. While everyone was sliding down the front face, the back was 12" of untouched powder. I spotted that the last time we were there, so I made note for this time. I could make 2 or 3 light turns on the Burton Throwback: Take every chance you get!

  49. So in other words you went to Aspen, had a single bad run, and quit. if you ever want to make sure that you don't learn a GD thing, that's absolutely the right way to go about it. I went to Aspen the same year. I rode by myself some and enjoyed being outside on the snow, before I smiled at some other people, made friends, rode with them for the rest of the trip and learned a sh!t ton. I also went to MCC last year, and the first day was a disaster. it was flat light (my least favorite conditions), the groom was sketchy, it was icy, and Turner is a steep hill, much steeper than I'm used to.
