i'm using the yakima fatcat 6. imo its the best ski/carrier out there. low profile for saving gas, and really wide so the boards won't get squished when loading.

^yeah,
I took a serious look at the fat cat when I was doing research for my ski/snowboard carrier. Figured that I usually drive in town with very rare long distance trips; makes the gas saving pretty low. The one interior mountain trip I do every year is rare enough to nullify it.

What do you drive? Are you still rocking the el?

How much is a 7-11 Whistler pass? Does it have to be used the day of, or can you use it anytime?

Is the Edge card cheaper than 7-11?

edge cards are fully cheaper than the 711 pass, the more days you buy ahead of time, the cheaper the regular days are.

711 discounted tickets are usually 8 - 12 bucks off of the regular pass, however they have no expiration date, you can use them till the last regular day of the season, NOT applicable for glacier riding.

Was up at grouse from 2:30 till closing today. Holy crap was there ever a lot of snow! It was actually really hard to board at first because of how high the snow was, but then everything tapered off when more people hit the mountains in the later hours and packed it down. Overall, awesome week to board!!!

Any sales on snowboarding gear?

Is 5000mm pants enough or should I go with 10000mm+? Jackets? I'm just starting out and I don't see myself going more than 2-3 times per season

Gowith 10,000mm.
Even though you wont use it much on the mountain, you still can use it elsewhere.

But, when you ARE on the mountain, you will be glad you have the 10,000. Makes all the difference when the day becomes wet.

Going to Sun Peaks in Feb. Also a couple more at Cypress and Whister are in the works.
