First new board in 12 years--full on stoke. My cousin won the "golden foil" ticket at Warren Miller that is guided Snowcat Skiing with a couple of the Spyder pro's and I get to go...so I upgraded. I'll take it out this weekend.

Went riding (bike) yesterday--hit Marshall Mesa to see how it was (which was very muddy) so I bailed so I wouldn't hurt the trail. First time on that trail in the wet--that soil sucks. Muddy as hell--had to turn the outside water on just to clean up!

Sweet! I've always loved the natural wood look of Arbor boards.
Is that Element your first rocker board? Haven't ridden one yet, but my buddies who've upgraded LOVE 'em. Have fun!

Yep, first rocker. Actually, it will be the only other board I have ever ridden than my Nitro Natural that I have been on for 12 years. Going up butt-ass early on Saturday and hit Copper. Last time on a powder day I left at 6:15 and it took me 4.5 hours to go to Breck--F-that. That is precisely why I don't like going to the hills--more time driving than boarding. Saturday I am going to head up at 5:30, see if that works, and get breakfast up there...

Right on - run that baby through the gauntlet.
I ALWAYS try to hit the road by 6:00 on weekends. Going up early for 4 days in Steamboat tomorrow - always a good way to avoid those Brek crowds:thumbsup:

btw: turn those bindings around ... goofy is the new regular ;)

Velo--those are some mighty fine bindings. I must just try and pair. Right now I am going to give the Flux SF45 a go--if I don't dig em, I'll check those out for sure!
