What’s up y’all,
Jerry here with a Jerry question.
Local to Atlanta, GA, but I’ve been skiing about twice a year for 13 years. Last winter I went to Breckenridge and rented the ‘23 World Peace and honestly loved it. All I really do is run groomers and occasionally hit some jumps… maybe a box or two if I’m feeling froggy.
I’ve always wanted my own board and recently purchased the ‘24 World Peace and found out afterwards it’s considered a park board. Did I make a mistake? Will the ‘24 ride the same as the ‘23?
I feel like most of the people here are gonna tell me that Union is the right choice but I'm curious how people feel about these Salomon bindings. All of the bindings I've had have been somewhat on the softer side because I spent most of my time in the park but last season I started to do a bit of BC riding, a lot more tree runs and am constantly hunting the deep stuff. I'm on the prowl for a stiffer binding but am curious if I'm gonna miss that surfy feeling which is why I'm somewhat drawn to the Salomon's in a weird way (they're also like $100 cheaper right now so maybe I should just give them a go?). Will probably go with Union but would love to know your thoughts!

Looking at some goggles and did all the readings that pretty much all regurgitate the same thing. I get the stuff that everyone says about spherical vs. Cylindrical. Most cheaper cylindrical get punched out of a plastic mold and stretched over the frame. If the cylindrical lens was molded like the nicer lenses would it get rid of most of the distortion issues? I noticed for example the spy marauders have the same price tag as most spherical goggles.
I'm considering to buy a pair because the marketing looks like it would be awesome, but I'm hesitant because it looks a bit like a gimmick.
Anybody with first hand mountain experience with them? Do you like them? Are they worth the price?
That's for my all around deck, no park or e.g. freeride/backcountry
I am having a hard time finding my love of snowboarding again. I live in Colorado and work in a resort town. I used to chase powder days and try to hit a 100 days every season. I get bored anymore and hate all the lines and people. Anybody else in the same boat? I lived in big sky for a season this was awhile ago. I got spoiled on really steep and deep lines. The resort I am at has good tree runs but the steps are easy. I don't feel challenged and I feel like it's all different now. Maybe I'll get it back. I would give anything to go back in time. Have insane friends that just wanna wake up and ski the big and the wave and steep steep stuff. Resort town not be so expensive and never stand in line at the lift again.
I am from the UK and I don't have any close shops to visit to look at snowboards. I have called a shop which is 4 hours away and they recommended a Nidecker Sensor but I can only find 153cm and I think I need 156cm. It was a really Good price at £265.30.
I have never owned a snowboard before and I have no idea what to look for and I slam wondering if anyone can recommend me a board.
I am currently looking at getting Burton Photon Step on and Bindings.
My experience: I have been on one trip before (1 week) and this will be my second trip in January and will be looking at going every year for 1 trip. I also visit a local indoor slope a few times a year.
Me: I am 78-80kg 5ft 10 Size 9 foot
I am not too bothered about speed but I would like to focus more on turns, spins and using running both ways of the board etc I don’t really go off piste just stick to the routes. Mainly blues and reds.
I really appreciate the advice anyone can give me :)
Hi guys, I need your help in choosing a good destination for snowboarding in Europe. I am planning to stay there for 5 or 6 days. I am looking for:
I will be traveling solo so if you can recommend any good hostels/ social hotels or group events that are happening there it would be great. I also have heard that there are some providers that organize winter camps or something like that. Any recommendations are appreciated!
does anyone here got some nice experience with backyard rails? Im planning to do one this season but not really sure on how to do it. I've got a 4m plastic rail and considering doing a wooden stand just like in this photo (instead of metal). Is this something to put time into if I want to make it as close to a snowpark rail as possible?
Want to discuss current trends? Board shapes, technology? Advice picking outerwear? Need info on traveling to Revelstoke for the first time? Or question about what board you should buy?

Looking for bibs or preferably insulated high rise pants for my girlfriend who is 5’8 and 120 pounds, she’s tall and very thin so I wanna make sure I’m getting her smth that’s going to fit her well so she doesn’t have to go through the hassle of returning. She’s a size 0 in the waist but I’m worried the smalls will be too short in the legs. Any advice is appreciated
Hi friends. Going to Chamonix with my snowboarding gear next March.
I have read alot of info already, mostly about skiing (since it’s europe) and off piste private tours.
But anyone here just went for snowboarding and found some good areas that are board-friendly? We are intermediate and don’t want to get stuck on any flat runs, and we don’t want to get lost on runs either…
I see a lot of controversy on here going back and forth for each of these brands.
Anyone have experience with multiple?
Looking for something louder, good quality, and easy. What’s the best?
I was going to get I salomon assassin 163w but I couldn't find one anywhere, are there any boards that are similar or does anyone know where I can get a salomon assassin 163w?
Here is what I would consider a rider should be capable of for each tier. However, this is by no means definitive and is just meant to provide you with a rough idea for each category if you were unsure where to place yourself. By all means, feel free to assign whatever meaning you want to each tier and go from there!
Professional athlete / Olympian:
I have heard capita likes to adjust the stiffness of this board every year. Do you know how this years Bsod run compares to previous years when it comes to stiffness and such?

Went and zeeched some front boards yesterday.
I have been looking for a snowboard and have narrowed down to these boards but am also open to a different board as well. I like to ride everything on the mountains: blues, blacks, occasional double black, groomers, moguls, trees, and a little park. I like to go fast and push on groomers and then like to hit moguls hard sometimes (I ride with skiers most the time so moguls and trees). I also enjoy natural features more than park. Based on my riding style, all 3 of these boards seem fitting so want a recommendation.
I am 6’3 195 so I would be looking at these sizes.
160W Hometown Hero
158W or 162W Custom
159W or 162W Flight Attendant
I am leaning towards the hometown hero as of now, but open to any recommendations/suggestion. Thanks for the help in advance.
I have been going back and forth looking for outerwear for the past few days, and have landed on Burton or Dope Snow. Burton has very expensive stuff, while seeming better, but Dope Snow also looks good while being better for budgets. However, I have read some negative reviews about Dope Snow being fast fashion. I am trying to be more on the cheaper side, while still getting good gear. Any opinions about these two?
Hi everybody! I just bought a new Arbor Satori Camber to switch over from my old Arbor Element. I am switching the Ride A-8 bindings over from the Element (they're less than a season old) but the bindings won't screw in. I think it's a screw length issue, because the binding discs alone screw into the new Satori board just fine, but the screws don't catch once the disc is placed in the binding.
The below photos have most of the details about the situation. Any suggestions? Is it a screw length issue? If so, do you have a recommended screw length? Any links to recommended hardware kits would be appreciated. Thanks for your help.
I'm planning a trip for January and I don't know whether to go to Sunshine or Lake Louise? What do you locals suggest is the best and gets the better snowfall?
Yeah so guys I just saw this on Facebook marketplace for $900 and wondering if it’s worth it? The guy said it’s a sick ride and collectible and comes with bindings from 2003 which apparently was the glory year of bindings. Anyway thanks guys let me know what you think because it looks like a sick deal and super stoked to hit the slopes and absolutely shredddd this season
Any tips on keeping new boots with BOA working long term?
