Recommended Posts

Anyone want to share any good OS sites for buying snow clothes? Dont feel like paying the extra $400 per item we get charged in AU.

I'm just back from a few days at Buller... Sunday was a beautiful day, too bad I got there at 2-3pm and couldn't be arsed doing anything.

 

Monday turned out like shit... Heaps of wind, shit snow and not cold enough... Was pelted with sleet the whole day.

 

Tuesday was better. Foggy, snow, but not much wind. Cold though. Took some snowblades out and had awesome fun... Definately picking up a pair of Revel8 skiboards for next season.

 

Going to head up later on the season this year when the weather's a little better and more runs are open... And MBP too.

I was also up at Buller on Sunday. Wasn't much snow coverage but I did get a decent warm up down Bourke St and Summit. This week has had 35cm fall so far and more expected, finally season is starting to look good. Probably head to Buller again mid next week when School holidays are over and weather clears up a bit. Then big trip to Hotham is in 2 weeks. Can't wait!!

haaha i love watching ppl stack into kids... its amusing.. but then kids cry and u feel bad.. but you still lol

 

This year was my 3rd season boarding. Im ok, not great, i bought a new forum board, but found it too stiff, next season ill probably get something a little more flexy so i can practice some ground trickery dickery.

 

Hotham is the top mountain for me. Falls is not too bad, heaps of trails. Buller is really only good for one dayers..if your gonna spend a weekend up, you may as well go falls or hotham.. I find buller too full of anoying tourists.

ballistyx are good... Decent range... Expensive when not on sale as said.

 

Sucks, I wasn't able to get the skiboards before the exchange rate went to shit and now what would have cost me around 500-600 is now around 900. Grrrr.

 

Anyway, I'll try to get the shit before the season starts, but either way I'm up for a few weekends... Can't wait really.

I've got my bonus coming next pay, so going to use that on some boards, bindings and the rest of the gear I need... Boots'll have to come later on down the track, and not to mention I need new clothes... The shit I have is from the late 90s. :lol:

 

What we can do is make up a thread in the Vic section, see who's interested, who's keen on driving and all that jazz.

 

Get cracking Rustyy. :P

buy everything over there. and while he is at it, it would be a good idea to buy two pairs off boots unless your going to be storing them in a drying room. cold wet boots in the morning f**king sucks. thats why i aint sellin my forums :P
