RULES (click for detail)
We try to keep /r/snowboarding a friendly place for riders of all skill levels,
please use the DAILY DISCUSSION thread for general Q&A about gear and skills/technique, and any requests for opinions or help, especially for newbie-related questions. If your thread is removed without explanation, it's most likely because it should be posted there. The general rule is photo and video submissions to /r/snowboarding should be of people actually riding on snowboards. If you want to submit a picture of your gear or where you ride, please use the Daily Discussion.
Heated discussions are fine, but hate speech and unwarranted ad hominen attacks may be grounds for a ban.
For sale/trade posts are allowed, but all of the relevant information (description, pictures, price/terms) must be posted up front. Also, no repeat posts, please.
As is the policy for all Reddit communities, blogspam is forbidden.
Additional detail on these rules can be found here. Be aware that that those rules are slightly outdated (update is pending). If there is a discrepancy between those rules and the brief explanations in this sidebar or the judgement of a mod, the latter take precedence. If you have a question about the rules, send a polite message to the mods and we'll look into it (provide the link to the thread in question too). None of us are paid for this and we're less likely to be lenient with rules if you're an entitled brat about it. It's regrettable that this has to be said explicitly, but a large number of messages we receive are like this. Lastly, this is worth repeating since this is something that we have to constantly clarify (99% of modmail is about this): If your thread was removed without explanation, it most likely belongs in the Daily Discussion Thread.

I’ve been snowboarding for a few years but don’t know much about bindings I was thinking of getting the Rossignol Battle Snowboard Bindings 2022 and put them on the capita Space metal fantasy. I wanna do hills and also park are these a good binding for what I want to do?
I'm looking to go during Christmas break for 3- 4 days. Are there any deals? I'm open to go anywhere from Pennsylvania to Vermont.
What stance do you have set up?
Looking at specs it looks like 11.5 is probably around, if not the max size for this board?
I'm 6kg within the weight range but I want the smallest length possible but just curious whether or not the boot size (vans) could be an issue - I think it's wider than it lets on because of the mid bite?
Also if you are in the upper weight range, how does it deal with powder? Can you ride without using the slam backs?
If anyone is looking to get an ikon pass and wants a discounted rate ($619 for the full pass) hit my dms and I can show you how.
FYI Its through an trustworthy/well known company and nothing is thru done thru me
If you liked mobbing groomers, side hits, and kickers, which would you choose?
As I'm sure you've all seen in their email, Sierra will be inoperable this year (or operating at a very minimal capacity on an unknown date). You can either get a refund, or roll your pass over to 2022/2023 with a $50 rebate. (You can opt to have your $50 rebate donated to the Sierra staff, which I'm definitely doing).
I just wrote an email to a group of Vail Resort executives asking that they honor the pre-September Epic Pass rate for Sierra Pass Holders. If others do as well, then maybe we can get some traction and ski/ride at Heavenly and Kirkwood at a reasonable price. Here are the emails below. Thanks.
I’m a big guy, 6’3” 300lbs size 13 boots. Been doing some homework on boards that cater to the big man and the Stump ape keeps coming up.
I mainly ride powder as my closest resort has some of the biggest snowfall in North America .
From all the homework i’ve done the stump ape sounds like a beast in the powder, but i would love to hear some personal experiences with it before i pull the trigger.
Thanks in advance peeps!
I’ve been riding for about 12 years now. I’ve been shredding the same arbor “foundation” board for as long as I can remember. It’s not stiff at all and rocker shape. I love this board more than anything but I am in the market for something that will have more control and responsiveness.
Like I said in the title, I am thinking about getting an arbor element with the camber profile. Any thoughts or recommendations around the 500$ price range? +- 100$
So today i bought the 2021 ride burnout with some ride c-6 bindings but i researched the board a little more and people are saying its better for aggressive park riding, while i just want a board that is decent at park but can still cruise around too. i also am looking at the k2 world peace.
Full disclaimer I love punk and metal music but enjoy rap for park riding. Looking for new inspiration to get my hyped for laps. My go to lately has been Czarface (if you don’t know check em out) So, interested to hear what else people are bumping. Just the classic east and west coast usual suspects or some deep cuts I don’t know? Hit me up
Sierra sent out an email today saying they will be offering refunds due to uncertainty after the fires this summer. Anyone keeping their passes this season? Looks like another season at Boreal this year!
What's up guys... has anyone experienced something similar?
My board is a 161w. I feel agile and stable on anything that's not a double black
I also feel like I'm at it's absolute limit trying to keep up with my stupid fast ski buddies. At anything fast like 35-45 mph it gets sketchy
Will a longer piece of wood help me really fly through rougher terrains and have more stability on steeps and high speed?
Hey guys I need a lil help. I’m gonna buy a capita doa 2022 soon and I don’t know what size should I pick I have a k2 standard 163W that’s way to big for me right now I want to go smaller. I’m 5”11 185 lbs with 10.5us boots. I’m really good at carving so I’m trynna be better at park and going out of piste what size should I get ? I was thinking around the 156 or the 158. Thanks for any help in advance
Hey Shreddit, I've been looking into getting a new outerwear setup for this season and I've been keeping an eye out on sites like Evo and The House for some new gear to catch my eye. problem being that everything I like is either out of stock in my size or is like $500. i've known about DOPE Snow for a while now from instagram and always thought their gear looked really sweet however, I cant seem to find many genuine reviews on their gear. Seems like everyone behind the camera is holding a gun to them while they are taping the video or writing the review. And their product advertisements have been shoved down my throat unwillingly since I clicked on an ad. Their gear is supposedly 15-20k waterproofing and the jacket I'm looking at is only $255. From their website it really looks like high quality gear with lots of attention to detail. Ive been riding my first outerwear setup from Roxy for like 5 years now and its seen better days. Definitely treated me well as my first nice complete setup. Anyway, if you have experience riding DOPE Snow please feel free to give your input, thanks. And for info I ride in southwest Colorado, usually pretty dry conditions, not super cold, and varying wind conditions.
I’m getting a new board soon and I’m trying to decide what size I should get. I’m getting the 2022 DoA and I really don’t want to get a wide. I’m 6’1 and 175 ish, I was originally going to get a 158 but I wear an 11 boot and it says the 158 only goes up to a 10.5. Does anyone have any experience with the DOA around the same sizes? 11 boot, large Union Strata’s on a 160
