    I like Skiing, I have tried it so many times in India. It was really an amazing experience.

    What time of year are you going? Do you have any experience going out of bounds? Do you have gear to go out of bounds, or would you need to be outfitted? What is your general level of fitness and snowboarding ability?

    edit: sorry I didn't see this sooner, looks like you've been already.

    Hilarious, I have the same set up but with Malavita's instead of Cartel's. You will love the board - it is unbelievable in nearly all conditions. Stable at high speeds, good pop for jumps and ollies and enough flex for jibs. It does get a little wobbly at slow speeds.


    I got a Burton Nug to whip around for fun this season. Going to Park City on Saturday for a week - gonna be sweet.

    What are your plans this season Wes?

    I'll be spending next week in Angel Fire. Ready to get out the mountain. Angel Fire looks a bit small, but should be fun regardless. I go about once a year and really should just break down and purchase a board. Would save me rental money in the long haul

    So far I have two days under my belt, both in So Cal so not super satisfying, but I plan to make it up to Whistler. I've been riding a DC Tone w/ some Forum Republic bindings. Not a bad set up, but I'm still getting used to reverse-camber/no-camber. My favorite piece of gear this season are these new Arnette Skylights I picked up recently. The fit and vision are amazing.

    Only managed to get out twice so far, packed pow conditions both times. Board was awesome. Tbh, C2BTX is the only hybrid camber profile from any maker I was willing to consider bc I figured MagnaTraction would help with edge hold in the sketchy icy QC conditions I usually ride. Plans for this season are try to ride every other weekend, snow conditions and weather permitting. 1 week off in February so hopefully I'll get to ride more then... With the little one at home, we'll be more than happy if we manage 10-12 outings this season. Dude, does your wife ride too? My wife and I are planning to start our 2 y.o. next year.
    Nug huh? I'm debating getting a Root 144 (= zero camber Nug) to mess around on.
    Dope goggles.

    Just back from a week in Park City - first half of the week was Blue Bird, second half was a POW fest. Riding the Nug was a blast - it handled a lot better than I imagined, even at speed. Not that great in POW, however, and my worst spill of the trip was because it washed out on me on a double blue in 8 inches of fresh powder.

    Next trip for me will be Jackson in March - NAMOR, I've heard its about as difficult as it comes as far as terrian. Any observations to share?
