I cannot believe the season is nearly upon us again. Thinking of hitting up Brighton this year based on favorable reviews.

Let it puke!

Received my new outerwear kit the other week: Burton AK 3L Hover jkt in Smurf Blue and 2L Stagger pants in Black.

Really dope, but I might make some changes after visiting a local shop this past weekend... I have a pair of Burton Vent pants in Grayeen on the way because I'm not 100% on how the Staggers fit. The new AK ergo fit feels a bit restrictive in the waist/hips and seat. I tried a size up and it was way too big. Otoh, Vent pants fit exactly as I like.

Hover jkt might be replaced with a 2L Cyclic in the same color. Fondled one and it's really nice.

Nice - I heard that stuff is super warm in extreme temps.

Only new acquisition thus far this year has been a new pair of Nike Kaiju boots.

368

Already firmed up for two trips out west - Park City first week of December and Vail last week of January.

Nah, not warm at all. The jkt is about as waterproof as they come though, but zero insulation; 3L fabric's not even lined. Pants don't have any actual insulation, but the material is quite burly/heavy so they should provide some warmth.

Well done on those Nikes. I kinda like these Vapens in an ugly/cool sorta way:

2 trips this year? Fuck. You.

Not new, but still fun to watch:

I must have my Burton tech confused. In any case nice going.

Tried it once. It's expensive (70 bucks for lift tickets? WTF) Rental gear. Hell of a workout, though. Don't see myself driving to mountains for this.

With a 10 month old at home, my wife and I figure we'll be lucky if we manage to squeeze a dozen or so days out of the whole season. Def no trips this year. In fact, probably no snowboarding trips until we can take her on the slopes with us. Already looking forward to that year I'll sneak out of town and skip the whole Christmas/New Year festivities to go riding with my family out West somewhere.

Will stick to our usual resorts this season: Bromont in the Eastern Townships and Sutton if/when it dumps. Got some Tremblant tix, so might spend a weekend up there.

Not Yet! A good buddy of mine is friends with the Canadian distributor for all these action sports films so he gets a free copy of all the best flix every year. We're long overdue to grab a beer together, so hoping I can catch up with him soon for a screening.

I've only seen the trailers; is the whole movie all dramatic slo-mo footage?

Love it cause it reminds me that you don't need fresh pow to have a good time.

Just returned from a trip to Park City - crusty but manageable conditions. Bruised my knee pretty bad on a ill timed jump but otherwise a fun time.
post #58 of 103
So, I have got at least one trip planned for this season. Quite a change from when I was younger when I used to go snowboarding every day for at least half of the year. 91-02 winters were pretty much only snowboarding for me (well, and studying).

Now I have just got to retrieve my board that I left in a friends ski cabin 2 years ago.
