  1. 2017-2018 season prep thread.

    In that I have had it very differently; powder kicks my ass much harder than a groomer day ever does. Am I alone in this?

  4. 2017-2018 season prep thread.

    It's the altitude. Despite the amount of work your body is doing, you are less hungry than at lower altitudes. From a personal perspective, I know when I go to sea level I am hungry all the time and have a tough time getting full. Inevitably I gain 10 pounds in a week, and then lose it when I go back home to Colorado. Some interesting studies are linked in this article.

  9. Is this a good beginner setup?

    Welcome to the community! I like your thoughts on the setup, but do want to clarify a couple things: -The head boots are a great entry level price point, but do factor in they don't come stock with fully moldable liners. That said, you can always upgrade at another point or at the time of purchase to make your feet happier if they need it. -While in general the pilot is geared towards youth racers, it is also a good board for entry level riders on the lighter side of things, say sub-155lbs. Might you outgrow it in a few years? Possibly, but if you're under the upper weight limit I think the pilot could be a good board to start out on. If you have any more questions about options, setup, etc. feel free to shoot me an email at jim at bomberonline.com
  10. Fin and Michelle...

    No it isn't. However it did get to a point in mid-January where we were hoping it wouldn't snow so that we didn't have to get up super early and go ride. So many pow days in a row this January...
  11. Alternative to Palau 141 liners for Deeluxe?

    That's not normal for the Palau liners, and sounds like a molding/fitting issue. Give me a call and let's discuss. 970.513.7733.
  12. Non-UPM plates?

    A plate would set your riding back 5 steps. Do not get one.
  13. Cateks?

    We've got a couple things in the pipeline. No word on timelines yet, though.
  14. What is the ultimate crud buster?

    Eh, Tankers break too easily. Gone through two of them way too quickly.
  15. What is the ultimate crud buster?

    That used to be the best crud buster.....
