Nakiska Expression Session (NES) 2016 - January 15-17

Recommended Posts

Here are the dates for the 2016 Nakiska Expression Session.

 

Friday, January 15, 2016.

Saturday, January 16, 2016.

Sunday, January 17, 2016.

 

Every January a group of Canadian snowboard carvers get together and congregate at a Nakiska, ski hill in Kananaskis Country, Alberta.  This hill is where the 1988 Olympic Alpine events took place.  The Naksiska Expression Session (NES) is in it's 8th year and sees riders from all over western Canada attend.  Steve (Riceball) Recsky coordinates the event, takes photos and opens his home to everyone on Saturday night for picture/video viewing, pizza and beer.  If you are interested in attending this hard-booter event, you can contact Riceball via the Bomberonline Forum, email, cell phone or just show up and ride!

 

Spread the word!

Hey guys, sorry to hijack the NES thread, but just wanted to point out that NICE is at Schweitzer from Monday January 18 - Sunday January 24, giving the potential for two killer 3-day weekends, or one legendary week off. It would be great to see some folks from Alberta represent!

Facebook, huh?  I hear it's really taking off.  

 

Bruce just shipped my new ride, so I will have something to show off!

 

Nice timing!

A new new ride, Neil? I thought you and your Nirvana were still in the honeymoon phase :-)

It's a replacement for my old glass AM, which I sold a couple of months ago.  I wanted something shorter and better suited to bumps and other tight/steep conditions.  Bruce built me a 165 VSR AM with the nose extended (so it's a 167 now) and the tail more rounded and softened.  It's in the mail, hopefully should be here Monday in time for me to wax it up and bring it along.   Custom graphic this time too, hopefully it comes out as cool as I imagined it.

I'll be there Saturday... possibly Sunday. I'm super out of shape and haven't ridden for a few years at all! Nick

Ha ha, I'm sure you're not alone in that category.

Haha, Bruce. Soon, soon....

No major snow in the forecast; I think I'll leave the new (to me) fat powder board at home unless that changes before Wednesday night.

Is the Gecko plate demo happening?

T-Shirts will not happen in time. However, I'm trying to have 2 made up by Friday (Male and Female) so people can see what they look like so they can be ordered later if desired.

Boards tuned up and packed. Looking forward to seeing you all again!

PS I forget: are there ski-key racks at Nakiska?

Yes, there are a few ski-key racks.
