Snowing up in the mountains now and finally starting to cool down. Breck and Keystone open tomorrow, A-Basin and Loveland have been open for weeks. Going up to log day #1 today

Anyone else shred the gnar - one board or two?

One or two, whatever catches my fancy on a given day. Unfortunately I don't live near mountains (or even hills) so I'm still looking at leaves.

Been on one board since I was sixteen, and never looked back. Back then the only option was the Burton Backcountry.

The Mt. Hood resorts have enough pow to open, but it started raining up there again today...probably another few weeks for us. Traditional opening is usually a week or so before Thanksgiving.

I'm gonna catch my first day of the season this weekend, probably Breck or Keystone depending on who has more open. May even stay at the condo I have in Dillon (rental with 11 other people...) friday night.

I mostly Tele, but I may buy an AT setup soon (gotta stay away from that Colo. Ski and Golf sale this weekend...), I also snowboard, but rarely...

not sure if my knees can hold up to the 50+ days I hope to get in this season on Tele's.

2 boards, then graduated to 1.

Then the next summer completely BLEW my right knee & the orthopedic guy shakes his head everytime I ask..... thats been geez... 7 years now. I may try it again this winter.

Gotta love eastern skiing. Slush in the day & ICE at night.

one board, here. I've got Mt. Batchelor about 2.5 hours away. And there's Willamette Pass and Hoodoo for quickie runs. Only about an hour up to either one. They're just not as fun as Batchelor.

2 for me since I was five. I have often thought of giving up everything just to ski everyday, and then remember I need to pay bills. I wish I was at Copper right now!
