Re: Skiing or snowboarding

Cant wait to get out there this year after last years seriously disappointing season. Super psyched to be planning a trip up to Killington and the end of january. Be nice to do something other than Camelback or Blue.

Re: Skiing or snowboarding

I just got back into skiing after 23 years. The last time I skied was at Vail and Keystone. I couldn't stand to ski here anymore.
Now, the new shaped skis have made it fun again.

Heres me and my buddy goofing around and crashing a bunch and finally getting the hang of riding a couple years back. We've definitely got better since then. I'm the one in green pants.

The finger thru the fly in the beginning is EPIC. DEfinitely a fun joke! That little box you all were on is SICK!! Looks so awesome for beginners. You all look much more durable than me tho. That's for sure. That many falls and I'd be sidelined for sure!! I can't wait till this season. Last year I got a small taste and the season had JUST started when I broke my foot in January. SUCKED!!! :

I can't comprehend what I'm in for cause when I started snowboarding there would be like TWO rainbow rails, and like 4 other rails of any type possible. Now we've got a whole mountain by me dedicated to free-riding!!

Now have Salomon Faction boots, K2 Indy bindings and the same board. Might upgrade the board next year.
Nice!!! I used to always wait for the mid-end of season to buy so shit would be WAY cheap. Luckily this season I know someone at Burton and made out like a bandit!

I remember when parabolic skis came out and the shape was SO ridiculously exaggerated.

Last year the lake here didn't even freeze bro. I've ice skated and played hockey on the lake every year for almost 20 years now.. No more tho. The thing isn't even half frozen.

Re: Skiing or snowboarding

I wish we had more places to go to around. We have Mad River Mountain, which for being in Ohio is a very legit place, but I wouldn't mind a little bigger place with more variety

Re: Skiing or snowboarding

I've never tried either but I'd be inclined to snowboard. I was a skater for a bit so I think it would be easier to do.
