Ski & Snowboard Thread!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is a thread dedicated to snowsports, but mainly skiing and snowboarding. Even if you're not into that stuff, have a read! You might just get a new hobby!

Skiiers, snowboarders, welcome to the chalet! Grab a beer, take a seat and let's talk about snowsports!

 

This thread is for discussion about skiing, snowboarding, and maybe some other snowsports, anyone here a snowmobiler? Here you can also discuss gear, how your trip/day rippin' up the snow went, post your videos and more! Instruction and coaching for improving can also be had here. For skiiers, @AlexStriz can most likely help with improving your skiing, he's a pro! @upliftsleet1974 can help with snowboarding, with 8 years of snowboarding and 2 years of skiing experience up his sleeve I'm sure he can help!

 

Even though us skiiers and snowboarders are a pretty cruisy bunch, ground rules do have to be established to help prevent bad stuff...

 

1. Don't be a fanboy. Respect each other and their opinions and don't bash on them!

 

2. Don't bash on another's choice of snowsport! Don't talk s*** about skiiers, snowboarders; and skiiers, don't do it to snowboarders!

 

3. Have fun! At the end of the day we just love going up mountains and tearing up the snow and having fun!

 

People I think should be tagged: @Jaybird, @AlexStriz, @upliftsleet1974.

My skis are the Elan Amphibio 78 Ti Fusion in 160cm length. Only used for half of 1 season :D

These are weird because these have specifically made left and right sides, and also they use the Amphibio profile. The Amphibio profile has rocker on the outside side and camber on the inside side. It gives easy turning and edge grip at the same time.

I would love to go snowboarding but I would just plant my face on a tree and most likely break something so I'll pass

I really like the 2012 rossignal S3. I should have bought a set but I didn't have the expendable cash at the time.

Hey guys, I am going snowboarding in a months time and I have never done it before. Could you possibly give me any tips for not being a total failure? @upliftsleet1974 the op of this thread apparently said you are really good at it.

That moment when you try to take a pic of all your skis, but they don't fit into one pic :P

 

Here are some pics of my family's 'quiver' taken a few years ago. Sorry for potato quality. We've gotten maybe 15 or so more pairs of skis since then. And sold a few.

I have a few more months of waiting. I got this board late in the season last year and was only able to ride it a handful of times

I've never had any top of the line gear, but I certainly love skiing. I've been skiing since I was really young. So far my biggest trips have been to Whistler, BC, Canada, and Big Sky, Montana, US.

I am by no means a pro skier, but it sure pisses off the locals when I go down the double blacks on rental skis after growing up in the Caribbean.

Does it piss them off because you are so bad?  Jk,  so true some of locals can be such snobs.
