How much do you want for the Flagship?

My resort board is a 162w Welcome to the West and my split is a Jones Explorer.

If the Flagship was a split I would be interested. Thinking maybe I need a stiffer split, and a more fun resort board to fill out the quiver. I also have a 158 Rome Agent but it's a 2006 so I mostly consider that a loaner board.


haven't thought of a price yet. Mine isn't a split. PM if interested. It's in pretty damn good condition. ridden no more than 10 days, if that.

Supposedly something on tap for the Sierra over this week and weekend. I will be going up on Friday, skiing Friday and Saturday and maybe Sunday. I have to go up to open our ski lease, otherwise I might skip it. To anyone going up this weekend be VERY careful. It is going to be a couple of feet of pow on dirt and rocks. I'm going to stay pretty much on piste, I'll let everyone else pack the first base down. I've seen some nasty injuries on early season pow days. Last year a buddy of mine, who has lived in Tahoe for 20 years, blew out his knee skiing pow over a rock field at Squaw in November. Having lived there for 20 years, he really should know better.

I'm betting on 20"+ for Squaw Valley... Maybe 12"+ for Mammoth... We'll see how it stacks up.

Sunny weather moves in for California next week but is supposed to be short lives with more chance for storms coming off the Pacific around the end of the month.

I like this. jam_on

After owning the same Bonfire snowboard pants for the last 12 years or so (hands down the best article of clothing that I've owned, period), they're getting badly frayed in places. So I guess I have to bite the bullet and get a new pair. Stuff like that I don't want to buy online since want to try it on, get an idea of fit, warmth, flexibility, etc.

Now I probably should have asked this before Black Friday roflmao but anyone have suggestions on where to get cheap/reasonably priced, quality gear in Orange County area?

On another note, man it was a crying shame when that outlet store in Bishop across from the casino closed down.

there was a sign all last year that the outlet shop in Bishop was going to move to a new location next to the bowling alley. not sure if they did or not. The Waverave outlet across the road from Mahogany Meats can have good deals

I was lucky enough to get a proform for patagucci and I love their pants.

Heading to Mt Hood this weekend. Looking good.

As for gear, Sierra Trading Post just opened a retail outlet 30 minutes north of us. Check their site for deals.

Why not stay in Washington? Snoqualmie Pass would be closest to Gig, yes? You ski there yet? Never got there myself.
