Oh, and here's a pic of Northstar from this afternoon (some snow has already melted). I'll be up in Tahoe this week and I'll take pics if there's any snow worth seeing. Unfortunately I'd probably have to hike to get to any snow and even then I'd need a rock board so its unlikely I'll be riding. Plus I got my fix in Chile last month.

hehe, yah... I will never bring a full on race board to Sutton again : )... but it wasn't my fault!! :)

fortunately it was one of the last days of the season anyways (kind of why me and my friends were going a little too fast on a small bumpy trail with a lift that only has 5 feet of clearance overhead :) ) and it was a clean break that was easy to fix

but I worked out all spring/summer and now both legs are stronger and more agile then they ever were, and I will never get injured again, and will have many more happy days on my baby coiler

where do you usually ride Derf?

my favorites for weekdays are Sauveur, Orford and Tremblent, for weekends Orford, and for trips Sainte Anne Stoneham/Le Massif

Glad to see you're doing better now.

As for the places I ride, it varies a lot. Last winter, I lived in Quebec city, so I went a couple of times to Le Relais and Ste-Anne, and once to Stoneham.

Unfortunately, I didn't go to Le Massif:( But last time I went there, I kinda got "burned". I reserved tickets and lodging for 4 days, and there was little snow and lots of ice, so much we scalped our tickets in the parking lot the last day. My gf's sister (who was driving) almost left us there because she was so pissed. And when we came back, we had a car crash on the Metropolitan. Worst ski vacation ever, on the most beautiful mountain of Quebec, next to the other worst vacation, when my gf hurt her back the first day of a 5 day vacation at Ste-Anne.

But to come back to usual places, it varies a lot. Last winter was the first winter with my own car (with good snow tires). Before that, I went a couple of time to Olympia (close and cheap), St-Bruno (for the 2 free days of the season), St-Sauveur. I went once to Glen also last Winter. Glen is really a "nature" mountain, 100% natural snow, no ice, but not much grooming. I have yet to go to Bromont (other place near by that has night skiing). It's been almost 10 years since I've been to Orford. I hear they have a new lift? A place that I have yet to go but heard is nice is Owl's Head. And I hate Tremblant.

Anywho, this means I have no place in particular, I can go where I want (car).

So if you want to go snowboarding, just ask!

yah Orford's new lift is awesome! it's a really nice carving mountain and it's always really really windy and cold, so it's nice now that they have a hybrid quad/gondola lift

Also if you like pure natural snow with no grooming, try Sutton, they left a lot of spruce trees all over the mountain and pretty much the whole mountain is a powder glade.

Owl's head is nice but not on Saturdays when it's crowded with skiers and the best carving runs are blocked off by ski racers running gates

that sucks for your trips! too bad those are nice mountains!

this year I will be carving every sunday with RodRoy (maybe you know this organization?) and me and a few friends are president of Dawson Freerider's club, and we will organize many trips for Saturdays and Thursday nights, you are very welcome to come on any :) I will keep you posted as I have to return your favor ;) and of course i want badly to ride with another hardbooter!

You're not the only one saying Orford is nice for carving, Ian (another boarder from Mtl, registered as Bartron) says the same thing. I'm really overdue to go there, like I said, it's been 10 years.

I know Rod Roy, it kind of a travelling ski school, I knew some people who went with them a couple of years ago. There outings are quite varied if I remember correctly.

Sutton is not so bad, not lots of carving space, and the "glades", there more like bump runs wth trees, I prefer the glades from Jay Peak, these are REAL glades in my opinion, but I don't go in the glades much now, I only use my carving board. Except maybe when it snowed recently and I'm going to Jay Peak.

I hope the movie helped the healing process. Sorry if it took so much time to bring it to you, living in Quebec city was quite far. Didn't you say you got some more movies?;)

And you're not the only one not to have any carving friends. I don't even have any snowboarding friends, just plenty of skier friends though. And there's Ian, he's a carver I met here, I have to write to him again, it's been a while.

As a matter of fact, i DO have those things! Hurray for me!:p

QES would be NIIIIIIICE, great idea. Next step: how?:confused:

Whichever way you get there, it's the snowboard that matters... except getting to the Massif in a schoolbus can be bad for the back I imagine. Like you said, keep me posted, and I'll do the same on my end, and we'll all go playing in the snow and scaring skiers.

...for posting the link.

I don't quite understand--as nothing, it seems, is for free--how can tinypic provide server space and bandwidth for free? Is it simply to increase traffic--and business--to their web hosting services?

It's great, but I don't get it. Anyone have any info on how/why tinypic can provide this service?

Thanks for your thoughts. Snow, on the ground, here in lofty Leadville, CO.

Cheers,
