I went to Pico before Killington bought it out because it was so slept on. Killington elevation without Killington lines.

I lived about 5 minutes from here, poor place goes out of business every other year by different owners that think they can turn it around...

 

So yea, you can see MA fucking blows for mountains, so I moved out west.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I only made it out to CO, and only for about a year, but it shits on everything on the east coast.

Over the course of 2:30 hours, it took a total of 6 ski patrol, 2 snowmobiles and 2 toboggans to get my big ass off of that mountain. Those guys were fucking pros, taking me down cliffs and shit.

 

This post has me itching to get back out west....

 

Fucking beautiful...

ive had the same northwave boots for 4 seasons now (only used a few times a season do to the great east coast conditions i.e. ICE)....i loved them but cant use them anymore...any feedback on boa laced boots, they look way to easy so i figured there is somekind of problem with them.

ive been thinking more and more about picking up snowboarding. being a landlocked surfer is starting to wear really, really thin and i need something to replace it....i think its the start up cost that kind of chaffing my nuts right now though.

yeah snowboarding is too overpriced,

and too tiresome

but if you got a hook up with gear and tickets,

and good weather, its pretty fun.

 

i lived on the east coast all my life,

and by the time i was in highschool, i was over riding.

hated the weather, the ice, paying money and gearing up.

 

i live out west now,

riding in 50 degrees is what makes snowboarding fun.

just dorking around with friends, with nothing but a outershell.
