Welp, Louise opens November 7th!

Whats everyone do?

I have been skiing since I was 3, but I took up boardking a few years back and have sone it a half dozen times or so and Find it alot of fun. Not as fast as I am on skis (i'm a GS guy) but its quick to pick up.

Whats your tool for the Mountains?

and if you want post your gear?
This is the only positive thing I can think about when I think Winter.


I'm even a bastard and aligned the poll like a slope haha

I do both.

Skis: 1080's (Vincent Dorion Pro Model) with Nordica The Beast Boots and Salomon 912Ti Bindings.

Snowboard: Limited Factory Blank, still looking for new boots/bindings but I'll probably be on Salomon Boots and Ride Bindings.

Thats a stiff boot for those skis, but I bet you get wicked edge response on them, small sacrifice :)

Well I would have a sweetass board, but I had to buy a new winter jacket... So it looks like any boarding that I do this year will be on a rented PEICE OF DONKEY SHIT!

I got those boots on a pro-deal the year before they came out so I never really had a chance to demo them or anything. It was a smokin deal though. If anyone is interested in any of my ski shit let me know cause I'm looking at boarding more this year and I have a set of Nordica xp70's I want to ride this year.

i am a true skiier. Have been doing it and raced since i was 3 yrs old. Just like ben a few yrs ago i took up boarding and loved it. It still doesnt compare to skiing but is amazingly fun. But damn that second picture that looks like a heli skiing or back country path just makes me want to get out there and have some fun.

:clap: :clap: any one hit the hills this weekend?:):clap: :clap:
I just got back It was pretty Trick out there only the front side open but still a sick ride for the first time out this season. Dropped in to some huge air
Hope to see you guy out there soon.....

Btw Rode nothing but step-in today and my boy rode drake bindings and we both hit the same Crap and I had no problem
I like the step ins for eas of use and as long as you have a stiff boot and are good on your board you should have no problem...
