  1. They have Sean Cassidy, he lives in the Seattle Area. He knows his stuff, I worked with him at Crystal. I did happen to teach skiing and snowboarding (in hard boots) and currently also have a Meadows pass, but I can't do nights or weekends at this time. PM me and maybe we can connect.
  2. Another vid for a laugh

    Warren Miller would be proud.
  3. Edge tools, which ones?

    I switched from Swix to The Beast. You can get different angle plates for beveling and it's really easy to use. https://www.beasttuning.com
  4. No one has mentioned that not all wheel will slide, my Gumballs won't. There is a reason why skate shoes are flat on the bottom, just step and drag very slightly. If you put too much weigh on the dragging foot it will stop and the foot on the board will keep going. When I did this I was glad that I'd learned to roll by watching Captain Kirk fight.

    Blame it on Al.

    Much like Bruce (for years), Mark seems too busy building and riding to update his website. I myself have only ridden the WARP boards, and they are great. 7 vs 8 is just the cm range. I also have Coilers and Doneks which are really nice rides, but the Thirst is the smoothest riding in my opinion, and the easiest to change turn shape. GS turns right into slalom, cross under, cross over and back without much effort. They also float amazingly well in new snow compared to most carving boards I've ridden.
  7. Mt. Bachelor Session - April 3-7

    A cheap hotel in Aspen is about $200 a night, in Bend it's $50 a night. There is no sales tax in Oregon. There is enough coverage to ride off piste. Shall I continue? I'll keep bumping this post...
  8. Coiler Nirvana Energy 170 - Tight Radius - SOLD!

    Sold and shipped - yay!
  9. Bob, If you are willing to pay for a lesson, contact Gavin at http://www.snowperformance.com/. He used to work for C.M. and may be able to point you in the right direction. Or, go to the C.M. ski school and ask for Greg Dixon (supervisor), tell him that you want a lesson from someone that understands carving like Keenan Hall. He can ride or ski any equipment and might be able to help as well.
  10. Thirst XC 171 WARP

    It does fine with more vertical. I picked one up two weeks ago and have had it at Schweitzer and Mt. Hood Meadows, you can easily change the turn shape and there is no chatter at higher speeds. It's also pretty good in fresh snow compared to many carving boards. It looks like I'll be trying it out in slush next week.
  11. Another TD3 Base Plate Crack!

    You're a snowboarder, use duct tape.
  12. Coiler Nirvana Energy 170 - Tight Radius - SOLD!

    Yes, it is aging in my garage like a fine wine.
  13. Tuesdays and Fridays are good for me but I moved to Oregon so Crystal won't be happening this year. Once it shuts down maybe you can come ride Timberline some time in the spring.
  14. Mt. Bachelor Session - April 3-7

    I just got back from a NICE week in Idaho and I'm still allowed to go to Mt. Bachelor! 67" base so far. Free parking. Cheap lodging. Early April will be uncrowded and if weather permits 100% open. You know you want to go.
  15. Nothing beats C.M. on a powder day. Nothing is worse when it's bulletproof.
