  1. I went by last night, the guns were on full force but only on spike and mainline. Nothing on the north face! this was around 9 or so. I'm gonna be mad if cannonball isn't open for me this weekend.
  2. IT BETTER HIT!!! I can't wait to hit some natural snow(not that I have anything against man-made)!

    Stances

    I generally go with a 15/-8, it is a pretty good all around stance. I can go hunting for powder or just chill in the park really easily. Carving cruisers is fun and all, but I cant justify setting myself up to only do that.
  4. I'm in West Pittston (Wyoming Area school)
  5. I cant wait!! I hope they have that opening day price again.
  6. That snowboard one is awesome. It takes my mind off of the rain outside the window now
  7. Awesome. I cant wait to get back on the snow

    Bumps at CB

    Bump runs are a lot of fun. I'm not really sure why I think that because im a snowboarder, but they are. I dont know what I would do if my Montage groomed some of the doubles flat. Most mountains have at least part of one trail bumped. CB should try to spice up the front four a little bit.
  9. I'm so pumped to hear about colder temps. I really dont care who opens first, as long as there is snow on the ground
  10. Does anybody know whats going on with Elk? I havent heard anything on them yet this year in terms of snowmaking/opening.
  11. Why have the snow gods turned on us?!?!
  12. You beat me to it. I was just going to make this same topic. Anyways I'm extremely pumped to hear this news as montage is my home mt.
  13. You have no idea how much this just made my day!!!

    Plastic or Steel?

    I used to have step ins, K2 with the highback. I loved them. I never encountered any problems with coming out, or response. It was actually cool because i was able to do a little trick where i popped my back foot out, waved it around a little, and put it back in. I only got strap ins now because K2 discontuned all of the highback stepins so when I outgrew my boots I needed new bindings too. The only advantage to straps I see is getting off the ground, other than that step ins win because of the convenience.
  15. If you click on that link, it says Shawnee is shooting for the 10th.
  16. Im about as optimistic as you can be, but there is no way they will be open by the third.

    Waxing

    Does everyone here wax their own gear? Generally I take my board over to Bear Creek and have them do it for me. What would be some of the advantages of doing it myself?

    Better park?!?!?

    Elk Mobile?!? I've never heard of it When I was there I parked in a lot by the snow. I actually had to walk a little uphill around a fence and ride down to the lodge. (carrying all of my stuff)
  19. This idea is really great, there is finally a way to keep people out of parks that shouldn't be there. You can keep all the tourists, and those little kids who just want to "see all the neat stuff", out of the park. I almost landed on one of them last year, so I would love to see this around here.
  20. Board: Burton Floater (wide) 159 Bindings: Burton "The Ray" Boots: Salomon Self 420s
  21. Lets go with 12/10, Fridays are always good to open with.
  22. I have to completely agree with most of you on CB. I have only been there a few times, but my experince left much to be desired. They really do charge a lot for a little. That mountain, while large in size is tiny in terrain. For anyone who has been riding or skiing for any amount of time, there are hardly any trails worth going on. For the ones that are, i've never seen more commercialization (sp?). I personally dont like riding between chain link fences that run accross instead of down the mountain. And to top it all off, those road signs just piss me off!
  23. We got a decent coat, and it was coming down pretty hard last night into this morning here in the Wyoming Valley. I was rediculously pumped when I saw it coming down!!!
  24. I'm not really sure what it means exactly but while I was driving down 81 tonignt I saw a couple of lights on at Montage. Hmmmm........
  25. That hurts. Its getting pretty cold though. Belleayre is looking to be my best bet for getting some early season snow. They better open soon!!
