  1. Montana is littered with great skate parks. Keep in mind it takes 12+ hours to drive across the state West to East. Most of the Tribes in Montana have the latest and greatest skate parks with more popping up.
  2. @bigwavedave I wax 1-2 times a year and only put a file on the edges when rocks are discovered. Most places I ride have enough slope and snow conditions that tuning excessively is not necessary. I use to be rather OCD many many years ago about wax and tuning. I just have not found the effort to be equal to the performance upgrade. The Contra series is spectacular. Great edge hold, very forgiving and super easy to ride. They take a lot less energy to make them work well. It is impressive to see our North America board builders and designers making carving boards that are better and better each year. The Contra’s and Thirst’s are the easiest boards to ride, and have the widest range of conditions that they are super fun to ride on. We have come a very very long ways from the early 90’s alpine boards. When riding snow/icy stuff it seems like technique is a bigger factor than how sharp your edges are, like keeping your CG over the edge, keeping the edge tracking the arc that it is designed to make. It is not very often we have those icy conditions in MT except with rain on snow events, or freeze thaw cycles. This year had much more than usual, so it was a great season to test the limits of the Contra’s. I am sure that the East Coast riders will have something much different to say about tuning, as they should. The best thing for anyone’s riding to improve is, more days on snow and trying lots of different boards. Each board will teach you something about technique that will carry over to other boards. Demo every single board you can get your hands on and ride as often and long as possible.
  3. Please keep things non-political. Think of the forum as a Family Dinner where your really do not want to sacrifice family relationships for politics or religion. Stay healthy! 4. Politics/Religion: Purely political or religious threads or posts are prohibited. Snowboarding threads that become political or religious will be closely monitored, and tolerated only if the discussion is relevant to snowboarding.
  4. @bumpyride Great graphic. Thank you for sharing!
  5. Just as a reminder to all. Rule 4 of the Forum. 4. Politics/Religion: Purely political or religious threads or posts are prohibited. Snowboarding threads that become political or religious will be closely monitored, and tolerated only if the discussion is relevant to snowboarding.
  6. @snovvman The TD-3 appears to be designed to allow for a wider pressure distribution on the top of the board, give more dampening and stance options. The old TD-1’s with a small mounting surface, had a tendency to concentrate loads on a small area and assist in breaking boards. The reason for the height on the TD-3 is to spread the load over a wider area and to give canting options. The dampening associated with the rubber gaskets on the TD-3 ‘s are a very desirable trait for some folks, including myself. If you want low stack binding height. Go with F2 bindings or Carve Company. Just my 2 cents
  7. The best way to prevent cable or plastic arm breakage is to step firmly down on heel then pull handle to release.
  8. Yes it may look that way but once it hits your credit card you will see the exchange rate.
  9. Don’t forget that the prices you are seeing on YYZCanuck are in CAD. $100 USD = $138.00 CAD.
  10. Just wanted to give you a PSA to check your moulded in T-Nuts. @BigDogDavesaid BBC he had a failure with his step in heels at the t-nuts, so I checked mine and saw one cracked. I am going to drill out the broken one and replace with a stainless T-nut.
  11. http://bomberonline.3dcartstores.com/Fin-Tec-Heels_p_190.html Or https://www.yyzcanuck.com/shop/boots/f2-intec-heel-kit/ And you will be stepping up to stepping in!
