Snowboarding/Skiing Thread

Hey guys,
Winters coming up, and it's pretty cold.. Hopefully get some good snow.

Anyway, who here snowboards? Who skis?

I snowboarded a few years back, and got the basics, but havent done it for ages! I'm keen to get back up the mountain and back into it this year.

Where do you guys go to snowboard? How long have you been doing it etc?

Just general snowboard chit chat, we've got a bodybuilding thread, and a few others like this. I think this could be good, hopefully meet some VIC guys and girls up the mountain at some stage this year

i was a skier from about age 4 or 5 through to until i was about 14, my parents took me at least once a season every year, by the time i was 14 i was a very competent skiier but the snowboarding epidemic was just firing up so i jumped ships, i'm 21 this year and have been snowboarding since, never looked back.. i enjoy it so much, i missed one season (last year) and can't wait to get back down, usually we road trip and stay in jindi and board thredbo (i find perisher has to many up hills for a boarder, but it's a better skiing resort), or sometimes stay at my family's lodge in thredbo village but being there kind of takes the whole experience away because it's just so nice lol, i dunno i really enjoy the cheap dorms in jindi cos you've got like 8 people in a room so everyone is always keen to kick on, sink piss and smash billies haha

My girlfriend got me into boarding a few years ago. I dont think ive ever been so sore after the first time i went. Just about spent the whole day falling over and getting up! Went to Queenstown last year for 10 days and had some great days over there. Can now board at a good level. Cant wait to get up to bulla with every man and his dog this year if there's snow

I habe been skiing for about 7 years, Started at Hotham as it was only 2 1/2 hours away.

Love Hotham think it's nuts, buller is ok, went to Falls for the first time 2 seasons ago and loved that just as much as Hotham.

Just in the process of booking a NZ ski holiday for the end of july this year with the g/f. Staying in Queenstown and having 3 days skiing and 4 days of all the other action adventure stuff.....So keen.

Can any1 give me a heads up on the best mountains and runs in NZ???

Cheers
Justin

skiing is the shizz
my fav sport by far ive dedicated my life to it, second to the vl. ive been to most resorts is oz and a few others. perisher, threadbo, hotham, falls creek. in NZ went to the remarkables and coronett peak, queenstown was great probibly the only good place in NZ. and overseas ive been to whistler/Blackcomb in canada and Mamoth in California. whistler had to best snow and atmosphere by far but the best was Mamoth in cali, it is one big terrain park. jumps, rails, kickers, 60 Feet omg and plently of aussie loving females. going to jindi this season for a few weeks and going back over to canada for christmas. the truth, spend your money on holidays

BTW i have a few snowboards for sale in sydney for anyone interested?

i love the snow.
if i didn't have a full time job, (and a calais turbo), i would be chasing winters.
last year was the first season i have missed for about 6 years or something....
i would love to see Canada but Europe looks very nice too
oh and i board. i used to ski but only when i was a kid.
