  1. was the slice a collaborative experiment that led to the contra? talking sidecuts and flex pattern executions here. however, the slice was designed for softies? i think any softy is a little out of the box for Bruce, but dam does he build a nice bxfr! just professional quality equipment mastery. i have only seen/heard of the contra being on alpine/hardboot/mono/etc boards.

    Bend it....

    screenshot from video. Not so good quality. Bxfr68.
  3. @Jack M ya but what socks did you ride? I liked the course sets at Shawnee when I did either usasa or the moonlight challenge thing. The Maine series usasa courses were fun and the only time I could race a true GS board. River was awesome too. Clean courses with a couple outlier gates. A couple. Not my experience at some other mountains. The space on a trail has a lot to do with a set too. Or building bx courses for 90lb kids and sending it with 200lbs+. It can be sketchy to race but also a different kind of challenge just to ride for adults.
  4. no wonder the handicaps! i told myself to try to Okemo for daily nastar but never happened. definitely next year. the evening adult race league nastar course sets at crotched and definitely pats peak are more appropriate to slalom boards, or softies. i ran a K68 once or twice, but SB most weeks. way too much skidding with a GS board except for the last four gates. reference back to the reason for choosing the appropriate gear in bx; recovery. i'll also point out that the pats peak course is set over the top of rather significant ruts from previous training. it was downright dangero
  5. July 4th. Maybe? Nobody knows shit for sure. Beartooth pass is A LOT more than the poma lift. Some scary terrain. Doesn’t have to be scary but it is a different kind of terrain from what most folks have the ability to conquer. Be smart and you’ll be fine. You’re on you’re own up there... and the skills of your party. Just remember the 6’ rule. Jealous of access to such terrain. Lived in bozone at one time in this life... and just sold my splitboard kit to some guy in Billings. At least part of me will see that area again. That board was a momento I shouldn’t have sold but oh wel
  6. i have had a 166W nitro pantera the past two seasons as my freestyle/freerider. 27.2 waist and about an 8.6scr. it's not that stiff although most descriptions states it is. not damp at all. does hold up an edge pretty good though. a versatile soft playfull knife (compared to the rest of my boards). when you ride either a ptex topsheet or full titanal, not many (if any) stock or mass produced boards are going to perform even close. understood. it's nice to see boards getting wider and having a lot more options than what their used to be. a 26cm waist was a unicorn just a few years a
  7. Saw a post... Loaf is clearing mountain with motorized equipment. They urge people to chill with the uphill travel while they do this. Place has to be an absolute ghost town now. Respect their request and use common sense at any mountain I’d say. The “glaciers” will stick around longer without the traffic of daily operations.
  8. small ding near edge. came like that and didn't effect the ride. see pic. a couple of small scrapes on base too. not sure you can see in picture, but they're there. oh. edges are set set .5 base, 2 side. never ground. CONUS. @Jpilon check message
  9. Glass board. Not metal. 2015 build? 3rd owner. About 30-40 days total between all 3 owners. 170cm length 27cm waist 8-12scr built for 180-240lbs no major scratches/damage/etc pow and big freeride bomber! starting at 250. PM best offer.
  10. 400 obo bump
  11. K non is still spinning and it's really hard not to go ride this week. like exponentially hard. almost every ounce of my body and my soul says who cares, i'm good and i'll be careful, but there's greater powers at work and we should all do our part for as long as we humanly can to narrow this curve thing. look out for our loves ones, etc. it sucks beyond the end of time, but stay positive, healthy and we'll be rewarded next year... or maybe in a month or so.
  12. K2 thraxis with intuition SBC liners. not going back to insano's since these are stiffer and hold up better. i also ride now o-drive bindings which beat the hell out of my insano's after one year. my flow nx2-cx are much kinder on boot wear/tear. i'll get two years (60+ days/yr) out of the thraxis boot and going on three with the SBC liner. boa has popped a couple times. i didn't realize it until i took a break since the other two boa's held. the thraxis is a hard charging, carving boot. i've tried to tweak out grabs and tuck knee's. there's not too much lateral flex to them. good for running
  13. i think you literally got one of the last best runs down spiillway. it went to spring like conditions about two hours later... even up high. way to go out. just gotta adjust style and change equipment to the conditions. still plenty of season left. maybe see you out there on that monday following the banked if it's decent weather. surface conditions, i'll deal with as long as they're spinning lifts.
  14. Spillway at the Loaf is one of the best carving trails in the entirety of New England. IMO. Sometimes even mountain media steals a souvenir to share. Lots of good trails under lifts and you can inspect every ride up too. You are not alone. Could be bit of a 90’s thing too. @trailertrash ruined spillway yesterday morning. Gondi was nice. Upper skidder still the best.
