The long range forecast is looking nice! A little fresh snow in advance and mild temps. Sweet!

Snow today was great...hero snow in some spots.  Took out the Silber, the WCRM, and a new toy...well, new to me...JJA TBX...I've never had a board that looked at me and said "is that all you've got?" before...It'll be there if anyone wants to bring some softies...

Weird that it's already Jan and I haven't been up to Nakiska yet! Looking forward to riding with everyone again.

Does anyone have any discounted tickets I could buy at NES? 

I might be able to get one via my season pass.

Greetings "locals"...  I've got something happening this weekend (plus, a real disdain for crowds) but I'm gonna ride Nakiska on Friday, probably staying Thusday night at Stoney Nakota Lodge.  Anyone else gonna be at the lodge or some other close by?  Where can I find you rippers on Friday morning?  Silver chair maybe?  Could someone send me a local phone number I could text if I can't find the crew?  I'll be the guy in the red jacket with the bad attitude destroying the corduroy early...

Just look for all the hardbooters in the base lodge around 8:30 or 9. We're usually on Silver the first few runs, Gold later if conditions are good there.  Friday is definitely the best day, crowds are nuts the other 2 days.

Nakiska is forecasting 13cm tomorrow, and staying cold through to Friday. That should freshen things up nicely. See y'all on Saturday!

      Excellent condition, as I have only used it on rare occasions on perfect groomers early in the morning. It's been sitting in my locker for a few years, so it's time for me to get rid of it.

      I took a drive to Chilliwack today and the surounding peeks were white! That's a good enough reason to start this year's thread 😁 
      Hopefully not too long before we see the white stuff on our mountain too!

      A little run on one of my Fullbag longboards, specificaly tuned for carving. We filmed this at sunset, late last fall, after an afternoon of slalom skateboard practice. First experiment filming with an iPhone on a gimbal. It was cold, sub zero celcius, thus the winter jacket and snowboard helmet. I will try to add more little clips of pavement carving on skateboards in this thread, once in a while.

      i have moved from denver to albuquerque, and i want to get out some info on carving from ABQ.  6 months ago i would have had trouble locating ABQ ona map; now i iive here -- quite happily.
      first item: ski sante fe.
      has a nice, local feel.  no fast chairs.  excellent grooming and solid carving.
      updates to follow.

      The 177 FC is a special board.
      The nose is big for a carving board. When you bent the board in the turn, the curve continue perferctly in the curve on the nose and the edge  get bigger.You can test that by sitting on snow and push on borad.
      It is like a variable edge size , if it is possible?  When you go flat the contact edge is smaller than when you turn on the edge by pushing. Maniability  at flat  and longer edge  grip when you turn, this is for me a very interresting concept for a carving board, and radius 9-12 short radius.
      The result of this concept, is the board turn very short in carving for a 177 , and maniable board at flat, but the big surprise is the possibility  to carve  at higher edge inclinations in wet snow. That is the first board that allows me to carve almost in wet snow like in middle hard snow. And for me it is a revolution.Never i was able to me to do that wich an other board so easely.
      For me I find at ent  the solution to carve at the end of the season, so i can now carve carve carve until the last days.
      This board is a big discovery, a very interresting concept, and the solution to finish the season  by carving no matter if the snow is wet and high temperature. 
      If you have a probleme on wet snow !!!!!!
