Ski/Snowboard 14/15 thread

Its september. Gear is arriving at the shops and the video premieres are happening. Whats going on this year? Who's got big trips planned? Who's buying new gear? Is this year going to be as terrible as last year? Lets discuss!
Looking at new boards this year. Thinking of going with a Lib TRS 159 to replace my Rome Agent rocker. I'm a decently aggressive rider, 20 years under my belt but mellowed out on the park a bit in my old age. Still hit jumps up into the 40+ foot range in the parks, but prefer riding pow (obviously.) Any other suggestions for boards?
I'm fucking stoked for this year.

I'm fucking stoked for this year.
I've ridden the TRS a few times but honestly wasn't a fan. Felt too squirly and loose but thats probably due to the fact the board is mostly rockered. My go to board for the last couple years has been my 158 Ride Berzerker. I'm kind of similar as I've been riding almost 10 years now and I mostly stick to pow these days. Anyway I love the Berzerker so much I'm buying another one this year to replace my beat up one from last year. This board straight chargers everything. I manly ride it in pow and its handled everything from the deepest days in Japan to icey shit days up here at our local hills.

The board I'm really stoked about this year is the new 420! Going to be replacing my old Sickstick that I snapped last year.

Thinking about Sun peaks again or Gig White this year. Probably pass on the silver pass @ cypress since I'll be on vacation for a couple of weeks in Jan-Feb.

I think I'm going to spend a week for my 30th up at Baker at the end of February. Treat myself for making it that far.
Bought this today. Hope its not too squirrelly but being that I went 159 and dropped about 20 lbs from last year I think it will hold me well.
Lib tech TRS HP 159.

I've been stoked for this season since the end of last season. I keep debating buying new skis since my main planks (2004 K2 Seth Pistols) will be 10 years old this season and the bindings are heavy as balls but I promised myself when I got them that I'd ride them til they broke. I have other skis too but they're just for ripping groomers with rookies (cheap K2's) or big powder days (Fatypus Alotta Powders). I'd ask for suggestions on replacements for the Pistols but I doubt anyone would remember what they ride like anymore haha.

Trip wise I've got my Big White pass already bought and I plan to hit up Revelstoke as well this year, maybe do some heli/cat skiing as well if I can get a deal. Powder King and Sun Peaks are also on the radar as I've never been to either.

Can someone suggest to me some must do ski resort/mountains to do. I get 10 days off at a time and wanting to do a road trip down and shred some gnar.

Not sure if I want to do small small/backcountry, or go big and hit Jackson Hole or something. Would appreciate everyone's suggestions.

Depending on how far you wanna go, Steamboat Springs, CO is #1 on my skiing bucket list.

Look into this pass. The Mountain Collective 2014/15 Pass: AltaSnowbird, Aspen Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Mammoth, Ski Banff-Lake Louise-Sunshine, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, Whistler Blackcomb

If you're planning on doing a road trip it could pay it self off pretty quickly. Its almost worth it for whistler alone. After your 2 days are done you get day passes at half off.

Also stoked for this season.

After riding 2-3 or more days per week in my late teens through early twenties, I've just about been retired since having kids, having gone only 3 times in the last 7 years. This year though, my 7 year old has no choice but to ride the Barbie Burton I bought for her when she was only 6 months old.

I've waited long enough.

I think I'll pick up a Cypress Silver Pass. I would buy a Seymour one, but most often if I want to ride with most people, they choose Cypress/have a pass at Cypress.

Hi,

How is everyone.

Yeah, i'll probably snowboard again this year. Getting older now, seeing is how it's my 24th year

Pretty stoked either way.

if you're doing a group pass buy, and unless they changed it, all you need to do is give away the group name and the password, and they can pay cypress mountain.

I'm unbelievably stoked.
Cypress pass was cheaper than last year.
Goal is 50 days riding the local hills, 5 Whis days, and at least 3 tours.
Just booked a trip to Hokkaido and Geneva in January.
Going to pick up a pair of new sticks at that sale and get my two-plank skills up to where my one plank skill is.

Praise Ullr!
