  1. Looks like they are back open for the season. Going to try to make Tue a regular thing.
  2. None of my buisness, but if they felt good when you put them on (especially unmolded), I'd be shocked if going bigger was helpful unless you have a particular foot anomoly that needs to be accounted for.
  3. Might try sticking on your easiest board for a few weeks until the legs come back. I'm resisting the urge to jump on the harder-to-ride boards untill I get more time to loosen up.
  4. I'm not much help but: a) I'm sure any aditional squats helped b) I'm sure my own quad burn is more technique based than pure strength based.

    Yo Lci!!

    Good times, and I thought the distance and mask use was suprisingly good considering my other interactions in CO (likegetting groceries). Loveland did a great job of ensuring good coverage on their one open run. Looks like early fall over the rest of the hill. I'm hopeful (although extremely doubtful) they will give us access to the Basin trail the racers are on. Still waiting for full feeling to come back to all my toes, but looking forward to getting back out when the pigglys wiggly.

    How busy has it been? Tempted to get it while I can.

    Yo Lci!!

    If you end up going mid week, holler. I'm going to see if my toe can tolerate being in a boot tonight.

    Yo Lci!!

    I'm letting a stubbed toe heal, but also not stoked on a single run on a weekend. That said, post up if you guys are starting to get together.
  9. If you don't isolate the for and aft springs and you run them next to each other, they are going to act aganst each other. So that pretty well takes away common spring weights
  10. Sean will get you going. Either of those decks are good. Boot wise, both the 325 and 700 should work as freecarving boots. The fit is a little different, but just in pure flex it's not night and day. Sean should be able to help you with that based on your foot shape and weight, too. Most folks buy boots too large, so don't be afraid of going a little tighter in the fit. Also, when stuff comes in you can mount it all up as a dedicated alpine board, or you can mount the bindings and boots on one of your freeride boards to get a feel without changing everything you are used to. I'm not sur
  11. Might be worth tracking down a good fitter. If these work for you, awesome, but I think I'd rather full length foot support and then do some shell work to buy you the room you need where you need it. No shortage of good boot fitters in this part of the world. I've had great luck with Larry in Boulder. Surefoot can do shell work and garantees their footbeds, and they there are enough of them in the world you'd be set up.
  12. Err- sort of? This is clearly a reworked Atomic. I'm guessing he's bringing in shells and doing all his normal Atomic upgrade mods on a direct to consumer platform. It's cool, and I'm not taking away from it at all, but it's not really a new boot.
  13. That's funny- adding longevity to the board is the opposite of what I would assume to happen.
  14. I like the concept of being able to pick your tools, but magnets, titanium tools, no tool lock, etc makes it a pass for me. I could see it being popular, though.
  15. Yup to Ikon, most likley Loveland (they extended their buying period for renewals). Both look to have plans if the season is a no go.
