Oh ya, I bought all new gear 2 seasons ago, and easily spent 2 grand. My friend has one of those cams really looking forward to using it this winter.




they are fun, and easily clip into your helmet with the proper attachments

Damn that sounds awesome. What resort did you go to in UT? How would you compare the terrain of the lcc or bcc resorts (snowbird alta brighton solitude) to mammoth? or where ever you went ive been all over the UT resorts.




I went to Park City in Utah.  The snow was fantastic but the runs/overall mountain left something to be desired in the end.  As a resort, it is nothing in comparison to Mammoth except for the quality of the snow, which was great at all times just like Mammoth.  I snowboarded at Park City for a few days and had a good time but it wasn't a repeatable experience since I don't live in Utah (so it'd be expensive to travel there just to snowboard) and since Mammoth has such better runs overall and such a large scale as a mountain and is fairly local to me  ... there are so many different runs at Mammoth that it's hard to get bored and it's unlikely that you will find yourself repeating many runs because there are so many great runs to hit, there's simply no need to repeat many runs.  I love having lots of choices of awesome runs when snowboarding so that I can always shake it up at any time and hit a different run every time so there's lots of variety and very little "sameness".

So yeah, Mammoth is my favorite resort of all resorts I've been to by a large margin and it is a mountain I could never get bored snowboarding on.  I always give it the highest regard since I lived and worked at the resort for months and had a consistently great time every single day on the slopes and every single night at the local parties.  For a good time, Mammoth is next to impossible to beat 24 hours a day.

Of course, this is all just my own opinion ... but like I quoted earlier with snowboarding being pretty much my favorite activity in the world, I take my snowboarding seriously and am out to have the best time possible when putting the time, money and effort into a multi-day snowboarding trip.




Damn bummer you went to PCMR pretty shitty mountain overall if you don't like park riding. Doesn't get a whole lot of snow, not very steep and probably the most crowded resort in UT. If you ever find yourself in UT again i recommend snowbird or brighton. The good thing about UT, if you come here for a multi day, is all the major resorts are literally right next to each other. Within a 45 min drive from the SLC airport you can hit 7 resorts. SLC is a great place to live if you like Outdoorsy sports.

I've always snowboarded on entry level equipment. This thread makes me want to get some good gear. I don't have that kind of money though. I feel like my money would be better spent on a season pass than to buy all new gear and not be able to afford to get out on the slopes. A boy can dream though...

About 9 times at the hill close to me, but yeah. It's fucking 400 dollars for a pass though, 450 after halloween. It's not even that great of a slope, but it's the best we have unless I want to drive 2.5 or 5 hours. I don't know if I can swing that.
