||The best stance is whatever feels good to you. I put my stance at the reference points on my board and it felt normal so that's where I kept it.

||Anyone used the alpine replay app before? I've used things like My Tracks before, but this looks much better. It seems a lot like EpicMix but with the use of GPS, so you get stats like speed and airtime and it shows you individual runs and everything, as well as giving you points and medals much like EpicMix does. I'm ganna try it when I go up on Sunday and see how it works.

||I would have to say Homewood. Sugar Bowl is good too but I'm not sure I would call it a small local resort. It's pretty well known. Same goes for Alpine.

|| I'm staying at Breckenridge, but I will have to give the night sessions a try. Also at Keystone I see that they have a lot of places only accessible by cat. There is a tour, which I wont be doing but it says there are also ones that you can ride for $5. That's going to be a must do if there is powder.

||I love my Capita Indoor Survival. It literally does it all. I would definitely demo before buying anything though. Luckily before I bought my board there was a demo day and I was able to try out a bunch of different board types. I didn't get to actually try the type of camber that the Indoor has, but trying all different types gave me an idea of how they all behave and I made the right guesstimate.

||In a few weeks I'll be going to Colorado for the first time. I have a pass to the Tahoe resorts, so I get a discount at the Vail resorts and will be going to some of those, but I may go to some others as well. Anything I should know heading out there? What are some of the 'secret' areas of the resort that I should be aware of. If there is some pow where should I go? If it ends up not snowing where should I go? Also what is the rule on leashes? I seem to remember that they are required out there.

||The Swix I have is the exact same as the Dakine.

||That's dedication right there.

|| I do a lot of the time, right as I get in the shower. Oddly enough my cat does too!

||I thought the river kayak slalom thing was pretty cool, I had never seen that before. That is probably one of the coolest summer Olympic sports right up there with BMX.

||Shoe size is not something that is consistent between brands, or even individual shoes by the same brand. Not that it's consistent between their shoes and boots, but I have found DC shoes to be a bit small for their size.

||Guess I was a little late letting you guys know. They had at least 3 more different styles on Thursday. Today they only have the one Rogan boot and some other womens boot.

||I've never really been one to watch the Olympics in the first place, but one thing that has bothered me about it over the years is how it's supposed to be a coming together of all nations, but in the US all they care about is the US athletes. I know that you can watch whatever event you want online, but many people don't do that and what they show on TV is 100% go USA!

|| Just a heads up for people that are in the Sacramento area or possibly to anyone near a DC outlet. I was at the DC outlet in Folsom Thursday and they had a bunch of different snowboard boots for $15. I don't know any specific models, but none of them had boa. Still that's a crazy price for anyone wanting a new set of boots. I'm actually going back tomorrow to get a pair of shoes for next winter that were there for $10. http://store.dcshoes.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11528890&cp=3448755.3531738 I can take a photo of the available boots if anyone is interested.

|| Someone I work with is trying to get rid of their board. He is from Peru and doesn't really need to take it back with him so I'm trying to help out. Not really sure what the value is so just asking for offers. It's a 2010 Burton Hero Size 155 Wide with Burton Custom bindings (NON EST) that I think are also 2010. Yes, crappy cell phone pics. The board and bindings both have minor dings and scratches but are in pretty nice shape. Base is in nice shape with a few scrapes from rocks. I don't think it was really ridden in the park a whole lot. Here is a zoom of the worst base gouge. Lower left in previous image.
