Step ins are back! I'm hearing great things too.

i did a march break snowboard school one year. rented a board that had the old style step in system. had to carry a toothbrush around to clean out the binding otherwise the snow would prevent me from clicking in lol

Ya the older style had lots of issue I remember. It's been about 10 years of guess since this style has been tried again so I'm hopeful that Burton gets it right like most there stuff. The few guys at the shops what have tested them seem pretty impressed, time will tell!

Nice! When I lived in Northern BC we used to attach a rope to the hitch of a car and get pulled on snowy roads that hadn't been plowed yet. Another town I lived was Rossland where it was very steep and there was always streets and stairs to play on
MAN! Always wanted to go to Rossland. How long did you live there for?

Just 1 winter, but I was injured for most of it, lol

We got too eager before opening day and some people had built a jump in the back country. I landed one on my knee and must have hit a rock or something because it split open real wide. I had to hobble down the mountain and hitchhike back into town to get stitches. I lost a good 2 or 3 months at least healing and missed most of the winter.

Rossland (Red Mountain) is great but its really gnarly, like its really steep. Its a tough mountain to ride

Oh my...look at what I've woken up to. We drove up through a blizzard yesterday and it's going to be worth it.

My personal Winter Olympics consisted of doing pizza runs for the family, treading through some heavy snow piles. I made it though and my family got their pizza. it as hilarious as i wobbled on one foot trying to free by boot from the heavy snow. my kid in the car was cracking up. (I ate two slices before getting home with it though:confused::confused::p)
