sigh

Go to your local swap meet. Around here there's so many rich folk who want the latest gear they hold a convention two days every year to sell their last years shit. You'll get a setup for next to nothing.

ill try alameda county spot i guess.. over by pleasanton cuz there be some rich folks round bouts up therrrr

 

NorSki in Pleasanton is pretty dope. They have a lot of good deals and probably the best prices in the area. It's off of Hopyard Rd.

 

Boarding is cool and all, but only if you have the most expensive and flashy gear to rock on the slopes. Fanny packs and neon are making a comeback.

I don't know if you Tahoe headies know about Homewood... you should. It's been #1 on my local 'shred' list for years now. Awesome place, cheap and pretty much void of kooks.

 

Locals only type spot. Check it out sometime.

I can't stand the ridiculous shit so many kids wear. Neon zubaz style coats, plaid looking jackets with neon yellow pants hanging off the ass and like 3 bandanas hanging off the pants for no reason, etc. I keep it black. Plain, simple, functional waterproof shit. I don't think i paid more than $50 for my pants since they had been sitting around the shop for years and had been price cut repeatedly since everyone seems to be all about the ridiculous colors. Also grabbed a really nice, waterproof northface jacket last year on sale for like $150 since it was a year old, then everything was 50% off as well so it only ended up costing me $75. Fuck if i know how they do it, but if i open the armpit vents and unzip my coat a little, its perfect temp with a tshirt even on hot days, and if i throw on a sweatshirt it keep me plenty warm on even the coldest days.

 

My old jacket, if it was at all warm, i'd be fucking sweating bullets even if i had on a tshirt. I think i just overheat easily though, since i almost always have my gloves and hat off for part of the lift ride, even when its chilly out.

 

On an unrelated note, i searched for my colorado/utah ultra photothread from last year and it looks like it got lost in the big crash. Weak.

 

Really poorly stitched panoramic i took from the top of a peak in Utah. Can't remember which resort it was at for the life of me though

Holy shit someone just mentioned Norski. I worked the one in Lafayette for 3 years. That shop's a total wreck now but this is all getting way too close to home.

When it comes to clothing, Siver Cartel was the best fly by night ski clothing operation to ever exist. Easily the best fitting jackets (none of this cumbersome oversized bullshit, but not "fitted" either) and in seven years not a single stitch has ever come undone. Started in about 2002 by pro skier Mike Nick, they made some great gear for 5 or 6 years. Then it disappeared. You now can find all their gear at bargain bin prices in places like TJ Maxxx. A damn shame.
