I hear ya bro
Threads like this make me sad too
Why you pick PK? Not a bad choice at all just curious?
Basically because of @Masato Toys lol
well I hope it doesn't disappoint then, lol.
Just a warning again, its not big at all. Compared to other places in BC with multiple lifts and complex maps etc PK is nothing. Just a cool little secret with damn good snow conditions and little crowds and lots of fresh tracks. Also not much around there for nightlife etc its really remote
Google video it, there are a bunch
@Kaladin Stormblessed I bought some new boots the other day, Ride Lasso. I've always used the traditional lace up system but after trying on some speed laces and Boas I went with these.
Lasso - RIDE Snowboards | RIDE Snowboards 2017-18
Steal of a price too at 40% as they were over stock from last season. Note there's 2 knobs to tighten down the laces. Top of boot one does from ankle up as expected anf the one on the side sucks your heel to the back of the boot. They are a 6/10 for stiffness. I may hit the park here and there but mostly I like to ride steep an deep shit, go in the trees once and a while too. Where you riding this season?
Thats sick. I've been using my same boots since like 2001.lol. lacing boots is one of the most annoying things ever. Hurts my hands trying to pull them tigjt
I only ever really ride mountain creek and camelback since they are the two closest. I'm a home body
One of these years I'm gonna splurge and ride a real mountain. I haven't had a cacao since 2010. I'm over due!
Whats a cacao?
Ya the boots I just sold were from 2005 lol. A really soft pair of DC Cougars that were cool at tfirst but far too flimsy for my riding style now.
I'd be happy to host you here in BC any time buddy. We finally stepped up and rented a quiant little cabin on the mountain 3 out of every 4 weeks up at Apex resort.

Not the biggest mtn around but it's awesome. TOns of snow, steep all over and is relatively dead compared to the other 2 near by. This season I'm planning to shake of the same old riding stale and really hit that next level. The last 2 season sI've been skiing to help my two kids get up and going but they're at a point now where I can get back on my board and not have to follow them around as much. Plus the lesson we put them in are now 5 hours every saturday once season starts. I need to get beter so I can stay ahead of them for as long as possible. Those little fuckers have no sense of danger once they find their confidence.
Our place is to the right of the upper parking lot on the far east side of the map.
Cacao is my way of saying vacation (not really, I just can't type)
What is 200? Are you 1800 years old?? Doo doO chhh
As far as traveling, I need another year getting my "business" up to speed. "Working" 7 days a week rigjt now. Haven't even seen my family once in 2017 and they live avout 30 MI utes away
Maye winter 19/20 tho (and hopefully by then I'd have fixed my shoulder and wired it out so I'm less nervous to hit the slopes)
lol at 200. Heres the boots in question...
Well get well and shit then head north. We can youtube our travles and hot tub time to get you some more followers.
For sure. I'm definitely tying to expand into the vlog realm eventually (not like tje one I did t the other day)
Idon't have a cameta yet. But it's totally going to be long boarding, wakeboarding, snowboarding, hiking, and mma events since that the only shit I reallly care about outside of boOKs and audioboOKs
We'll get some good footage up there. Appreciate the open door!
I enjoy tubing

Looking at purchasing a snowboard. I used to snowboard a while ago but out grew the board/boots and my skis still fit so here we are.
On kijiji there is a 5150 board with Sims bindings (not sure of model) and a Burton with Burton bindings (not sure of model) both are 1 year old and $150.
which would you go for?
Can rarely go wrong with a full Burton set up. If it gets you out riding then both are good choices.
Where do you ride?
The MTN I have passes to this season had it's first decent snowfall a few days ago.
Will be riding in Ontario - Piste exclusively
Be sure to post some pictures once season starts.
Did anyone see this hilarious ad from Snowbird?
Lol. Not the type of person to be writing reviews for mountains!
His review makes me want to go to Snowbird
What lengths are they
Lmao wtf. That's hilarious
Burton is 158cm and 5150 is 159cm. that works out to ~62 inches.
i actually did some searching about the 5150 brand. one review said "5150 is the armpit of the K2 corporation" so i think i'm going to pick up the Burton
