I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
What size of boots? Probably going to buy new ones, but doesn't hurt to check...
haha yea i understand how you need a longer board for that kind of stuff.Have they brought over the reverse camber/zero camber/ camber and reverse combo, technology to the apline boards as well?
I'm pumped to ride soon! I ride at Holiday Mtn and Asessippi. Alpine snowboarding is very small compared to the corporate-driven freestyle stuff. I think I'm the only one in Manitoba doing this style of riding, so if you see someone turning like crazy it's likely me. Come say hi! I don't jump much now, and stopped doing rails 20-ish years ago. LOL!I bought a new board after the end of last season - 180cm Donek Proteus. I rode a test model in Colorado last year and fell in love. It's really turny for a 180, and tends to toss you in the air between turns if you're not mindful of your edge pressure. It's about 1/2-way between the 167 slalom board and the 182 GS board I regularly ride. I'm eager to make some turns on any/all of them!I've got trips to Alberta (Nakiska) and Colorado (Aspen) planned for Alpine meets in 2013. AB will have 40 or so participants, CO gets 150-ish. What a blast to ride with and learn from the pros!
That actually looks really fun. I like trying to go low like that on my carves sometimes but it's not easy for me lol. I probably don't have the right board/setup for it anyway.
Oh man... You have no idea.. Dragging your hip while you're carving is magical.
I've never been to the mountains either
