I have friends who's hands stay miraculously warm. Most of them use pipe style gloves. Their just like thin insulation layers, with padding to protect your hands from snow burn, and the edges of your board.

I personally have cold hands, so I run Burton AK gloves, with an Under Armor innerliner. This allows me to shed a layer easily when not necessary to reduce bulk and keep cool. Also on really cold days allows me to get to my phone and use it without taking off all my hand protection.

(the UA stuff has fingertip things which allow you to use your phone while wearing them, and it works really well).

Sweet, thanks for the info. I'm going to find some UA inner liners as well as some pipe style gloves since my hands do get cold. I just like the feel of having minimal sized gloves.

Do you recall where you bought the UA stuff and also where to get pipe style gloves specifically? Thanks!

Snowboard Pipe Gloves and Park Gloves for Sale | Dogfunk.com

Check that out for Park/Pipe Gloves. I actually have a pair of Neff Rovers from last year, I used them for later in the season when it got warm out. I liked them.

As for UA gear, I know sportchek sells em. I don't know other than that. I actually get stuff straight from UA, as one of the companies I contract to is works closely with the brand.

What do you guys think of Revelstoke around December 15th <

I'm thinking of going there with a group of friends for our Christmas Break.

Thoughts?

Its EARLY. Thats a crapshoot for snow conditions. It will definitely be fun, but who knows how much snow will have fallen by then. Its pretty likely its not going to be too filled in. They can get hit hard by snow in a pretty short period of time, but consider thats only 1 month away, and there hasn't been a head start on precipitation.

Hey TOS'd, I picked up some leather Gore-tex Oakley gloves down at the Tulalip outlet last weekend for $30. They still had quite a few pairs when I snagged mine. Warm and very low profile. If you are planning to go south of the border, definitely check out the Oakley outlet.

Cool, thanks for the suggestion! Just gotta find time to head down there, last two times I've gone down I haven't been too successful in finding things, although I wasn't looking for snowboarding gear.

Saw you in rmd at a hotpot place last week-ish on my way out of there I think, lol.


Side question: Any of the places on burrard/4th sell Neff gloves? I think I recall seeing a Neff store at Alderwood Mall down south.

Not sure, bought mine at the comor in whistler. Maybe see if you can hit one down here they might carry Neff stuff as well.

West49 seems to have a decent Dakine collection of gloves, just saw it walking by the park royal store a couple days ago. Not sure what they had, didn't need gloves myself.

Yeah! That was me. I love that place. You should of came to say hi. Haha.

I know Pacific Boarder carries some Neff stuff, but Zumiez has their gloves for sure. I don't ever recall seeing a Neff store at Alderwood...

Ah true. I think what I saw was a skater-type store that was advertising a collaboration with Neff x another brand. They had a lot of signage and posters depicting snowboarding/winter.

Going down to the outlets in Oregon next week on my days off. There will be lots of skiing gear purchased.

The only thing I "need" is a jacket and pants, but we'll see what else I convince myself to get. Helly Hansen is gonna love me...

Yep. How big her head/face is matters. I had to get KIDS goggles from COSTCO. They're pretty great, btw, if you see them this year.

Cypress meets this season? Anyone interested? I know there will be a range of skill levels, like our last big meet, but we all managed to tone in down a bit or step it up to ride together and it was awesome!

Would you guys prefer in December or January?

For me if its in December, I can do weekends/weekdays(Dec 29/30 only). Or else only weekends for January because I work M-F.

Down for meets, for real this time.

Hit up Cypress today, was pretty busy at about 10 am when we got there. One run open still, wasn't too good but it was fun to just get out there and ski again. Boooo, skiers. Can't wait for more snow
