Step ins are back! I'm hearing great things too.
Step ins have gotten so good. Sick
Ya. I bought a new pair of boots this season but I'd love to try these out. Maybe in 2 years when price gets better I'll invest.
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!
Waxed my skis and boards yesterday before the UFC
That was last year in downtown Montreal.
Who said you couldn’t snowboard in a city?
I won't be able to make it to the mountains until january/February. I have to go to new Zealand uggh!
Closest i get is cross country skiing lol.
It's not jp in the movie, but I really miss jp...
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
dude that is brutal! Lucky you didn't crack your knee cap or something.
I have't been following the red mountain too much other than ads i see on instagram lol. pretty sweet project they have going on
Days 2 of Xmas holidays at Apex.
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.
That is amazing. Grats dude!
Ill assume -4 is at the base. Hopefully cold and dry at the summit
I brought my kids up to the mountains for some fun in the snow. They love it.
That's awesome man, where is that? I love your mustache.
Mount Hood in Oregon. I actually don't have a mustache, I just didn't shave for a couple days.
sick pic. is that mountain the background offlimits? do people hike it? how many thousand feet?
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)
Is that Papa Johns?
It sure was. Yum. Pepperoni, onion, black olives, green peppers, mushrooms. Oh the greasy goodness. The only thing that was missing was a cold beer, but I'll remedy that tonight
Not digging to the bunkhouse this time, nope.
