    Alright, I’ve personally derailed a few threads by bringing up snowboarding (we will include skiing in this as well because im not much of a pretentious a$$ hole) so I figured we could start a thread is for snowboarding.

    Soooo post up what you ride (make, model, size, etc), any gear you want to brag about and as the season comes also where you rode, the conditions of the mountain and such


    I ride a Never Summer Snow Trooper, it’s a 157 or a 159, I don’t remember for sure. Burton custom boots and bindings, though Ive been looking at getting a set of flow bindings, hopefully pulling the trigger on those this year sometime. 1a58b988588bce0b5ca39bab6f6968f8_7db1d63b1279fa98a0d81c3a302595195e2fdda3.jpg

    I also just picked up a pair of Far Out Sunglasses snowboarding goggles that I’m super excited to try out.58b74a08a673854c01b8a06914d5d1e0_b608ab8f760daad1fac9c959c8d68529e53f9127.jpg they came with a free pair of glasses as well, for not super expensive imho

    That’s it start the thread, @Almaboy @JC303 @smslavin @speckmon and I know there are others.

    I have a few boards. I used to work in a shop called Colorado Snowboards before they were bought out by Colorado Ski and Golf.

    Powder board is 159 K2 Gyrator that is 9 years old. My favorite go to. This thing floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
    Rock board 155 Forum Destroyer Double Dog. Got it for free and ride it like I stole it.
    All around 158 K2 Turbo dream 10 years old ..... this thing is a dream to ride. Fun in every condition.

    I have been riding Salomon boots for 15 years. Usually get a new pair every couple years.
    Boots are the most important thing IMHO. You can have crappy boots and the best board and have a shit day. But, you can have the best boots and a shit board and still have a blast in comfort.

    Just because it's a Tundra forum.. Next to my step dad's Raptor in a heated garage in Breck. Grand Lodge on peak 7.
    tundra and board.jpg

    Nothing like sitting on top of the world with nothing to think about except which way to go and when to turn.

    On the top.jpg

    No friends on Pow days! Just making single tracks.

    pow pow.jpg


    Just playing around. Go Broncos!

    I'm always in the trees. Here I am with the wifey! She can shred and hang with the boys.

    With my partner in crime at Loveland pass doing some back country... Mila my greyhound / lab mix. I think she loves this more than I do. My buddy Janti from Alaska always there to help.

    Excited to shred this year with @Almaboy, @smslavin, @Thegr8punkin, @speckmon

    I'm just going to make a few turns and try out my new boots to break them in a bit. I just chill out and watch for all the crazy folks who are going hard. I wait until we get some snow before the training wheels come off.

    ^ exactly what I'm doing, but with the new ripper, bought boots last year so they're pretty much just broken in. gonna get some turns in and my legs back, but other than that I'll be people watching. Can't wait to get back in the groove of things

    I go out as much as possible so if you guys need someone to throw at gas and fill a chair (and vice versa) let me know!
