Has anyone tried using 3M Scotchgard Outdoor
As a temporary solution to prevent water from soaking through your pants?
My butt keeps getting wet cause of the amount of sitting I generally do.

I just started this season so at the time, I was still feeling out the sport
and decided to just go with entry level (5k mm) pants.
I'll upgrade to 15-20k next season, but for the time being, I need a temporary solution.

If you're planning on buying new pants for next season I don't see the harm/risk in spraying those onto your current pants. Just read the directions/follow the instructions. I'm pretty sure there are lots of products out there for waterproofing clothes/fabrics.

That or you could always cut up one end of a garbage bag so both ends are open. tuck one end into your pants and leave it hanging over like a skirt lol.

Whistler was soooo deep in the alpine yesterday. Any thing more than halfway down red was terrible though, because thats where the rain hit for a bit.
Here is me when I stopped. This was with my board on. If it was off I probably would have been up to my waist.

Early Bird Cypress Season Passes for sale now. You can start using them March 18 2013 - end of 2014 season. There are also family rates that save you ~$25-70 each depending on how old you are and which pass you get (must have same address).

These prices are even cheaper than the MINI discount right?

Downhill Season Passes 2013-2014 | Cypress Mountain

Went off a jump and landed on my head last night at the Panorama park on Cypress on my last run... after hitting those three jumps all day... Had a minor concussion lol can't remember things properly from before jumping until I got to the lodge. Just remember bits and pieces. Only thing I remember was hearing some fucking asshole yell "sweet spot to sit around!" when I was half passed out.
Apparently I rode down the mountain by myself but I have no memory of that at all. Good thing I was wearing a helmet. Fucking saved me. My head/neck luckily feels fine even though I cracked my helmet good.
Kind of fucked up my new board though
Anything I can do about it? Any recommended board shops?

Board is done man, like fully garbage. Take it in to a k2 dealer, they will likely warranty it. Good to hear you aren't hurt. I can't understand why anyone rides without a helmet, clearly that could have been bad. My stupid fucking friends always just "leave their helmets in their cars" or "find them uncomfortable." A night in a hospital bed is really uncomfortable.

damn, how do you crack that helmet like that in the noob park?
I have hit my head pretty hard a few times but my helmet never cracked like that.
Is that the top sheet completely off? That's what it looks like in the pictures.

Hmm you think they'll replace it? What should I tell them cuz it probably doesn't cover damages caused by the rider lol

Can't remember how I jumped but it was the first jump in the park. There was about an inch or two of new snow but once you wipe it away it was basically ice. I think I just might have just over exhausted myself. Went for about 7 hours with a 80% left knee. At least now I know my limit. Went to the doctor today and he said there's like a 4cm circular indent at the back of my head. Getting a CT scan soon to make sure everything is good.

Yeah you'll definitely need a helmet no matter what level you're at. People can lose control and crash into you or you might just catch a nasty edge. Hopefully my accident can scare you guys without a helmet to now ride with one.

Its likely they will warranty it. I've broken probably 15+boards and every time it was warrantied other than the couple times I blew the edge/core up on a rock. Just go in, be honest and be nice and they will want to help you out.
On the helmet/people crashing into you topic, some fucking asshole skier hit me from behind in whistler last weekend and it spun me around and caught my heels, whipping me onto the back of my head. I chased him down and we actually got into a bit of a scrap at the bottom of the hill. I ended up just walking away after some shit talk and a few shoves. Not in the mood to get my ass kicked/go to jail for kicking someones ass. I was fucking pissed though.If it was him that fell and smoked his head wether it was his fault or my fault is irrelevant, I still would have stopped to make sure he was alright. He's clearly a fucking piece of shit, and karma will get him.

Sorry guys I just realized that my set of pictures make it seem like the whole top sheet is coming off, but it is just this one little part of the top sheet (circled in red) that is lifted. I guess snow got in and melted that's why it made that line. Here are better pictures. Is it even a big problem?

Its still rideable, but your top sheet has separated from the core, and layers of the fibreglass underneath are probably cracked as well. The flex will be fucked up.

Had an epic day up at Baker yesterday.

Unfortunately my skis are broken, the edge is seperating fromt he ski itself. Have about 3" sticking out from the ski. I'm really torn on if I should pick up a new set of skis or not as the ones I would be getting would be a fatter set up. Or if I should just rock my "park" skis the rest of the season. I think i'm going to pick the latter just based on the fact that there "shouldn't" be any new snow coming along.

Good thing I learnt right away that helmets are super important.
Last season I went for the first time and borrowed a buddy's gear.
Was going down toe edge and my heel edge got caught and I went flying into the air and smacked the back of my head.

I was completely fine, but made me realize I'm never going to ride again without a helmet.

I bought a helmet that's comfortable for me, and it's served me well this season a few times already. Best $90 I've spent...
I like it so much, I'm contemplating whether to do a DIY custom paint job on it during the summer, so it'll match the rest of my gear.
