  1. TD3 M8 Hex Plate Screws Needed!

    I just bought 1 for my TD3s at Ace Hardware for $.75 it's not stainless but it will get me on the slopes tomorrow.
  2. Well it sounds like their plan is to make snow on top of this stuff. They plan on opening Dec 15. I have mixed feelings on this. It was not fun to ride on When it was just the plastic. However, I can see it being great with a bit of snow. It'll protect your board on thin spots and they can open with 3" of snow on it. I did spend some time chatting with the manager and the plan is to install at least 2,800' of this. So in hoping it rides ok with a little snow on it.
  3. ATC and ECES Info

    I've missed every rally at the Dome but if I'm home from the boat I'm in.
  4. ATC and ECES Info

    Dingbat are you spelling RALLY@BEAST? If I'm home I'm in.
  5. I don't have softies any more. I'm actively trying to talk the family into going. I'll be running a Donek FC 172 since there is no way I'm taking my Coiler on that.
  6. Think Snow! Gecko Plates Needed! Got-em Now!

    I suspect he's looking for a used set. I like the look and idea of the Geckos but they would be more expensive than the custom board I had done.
  7. I'm only 40 minutes from there. If this is even partially carveable I would seriously consider a season pass. Edit- it opens Sept 2nd. I may seriously have to check it out with my old Donek. It may be worth $18 to see what the story is. https://powderridgepark.com/365-synthetic-snow-park/
  8. 2017-2018 season prep thread.

    I know I'm not even close to the oldest on here but I'm not a kid either. With that in mind I'm prepping earlier for the season in the Northeast to be sure I'm ready. Last year I only got out 4 days in 1 week and it was a disappointing season for me (got hit twice!). So to better prepared I'm starting the recommended routine in the Bodyweight fitness subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/wiki/kb/recommended_routine and leg blasters https://www.backcountry.com/explore/train-eccentric-leg-strength-for-alpine-skiing?branch_used=true on top of my normal cardio stuff. So what are you doing/planning on doing to prepare for the upcoming season?
  9. Heard It In The Lift Line 2015/2016

    The barely accepable form of snowboarding sounds like the beginning of a new t-shirt.
  10. Knee, Elbow, and Forearm Protection

    Well I've been hit twice in the last week so I'm now seriously considering some protection. I think I'll start with the spine since that and my ribs have taken the brunt of the impacts (no injuries).
  11. Mohawk Mtn.

    Had an okay day, there was a decent mix of granular and fresh machine made on top of ice. The bonus was meeting Whitehorse and exchanging info to meet up in the future.
  12. Some of the gear looks familiar. I'd try this out, it looks interesting.
  13. Mohawk Mtn.

    Sorry double post.
  14. Mohawk Mtn.

    I'm running a trip on Sat 1/14, I won't be able to do much more than chat but I'll be there most of the day.
  15. Selling forum?

    That sucks I hope you're ok and bounce back quickly.
