    Hey look, snow in Montana!!

    I have every intention of coming back next year and maybe talking some of the Calgary crew into coming with me.

    Hopefully they will have the same killer deal on accommodations that they had last season. Kathy and I got three nights in a really nice up/down unit, with a bathroom each and a full kitchen, and 100 yards walk to the lifts for $260 per person. If they repeat, I'll post it here.

    It has been snowing in bigfork down on the lake for 9 hrs straight. we have 2 inches accumulation on warm ground. It can't melt fast enough


    Biggest storm of the year and its on June 10

    If next season is as good as the last one we will have to change the name to the Big mtn powder fest

    well it snowed for 14 hours straight and then turned to rain. It never froze and we still have 2-3 inches on the ground. No idea how much snow we really got as it was melting as fast as it fell. crazy day but not unheard of in june.

    They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have to fire once. That's how Dad did it, that's how America does it, and it's worked out pretty well so far.

    Is there really a BMES '09 planned? If so, what are the dates? My sister lives in Kalispell, and this might be a good reason for me to go and visit.

    Its a work in progress

    We had a few diehard ohioans showing up every year anyway so we decided to invite you all. WE eagerly await the setting of the dates!

    Shred is the traditional setter of dates even though he stood us up last season

    That looks good to me Shred. The last week in January 23-31. If I can get A flight under $500 that would also be great.

    Hey Shred, if your bring the X4 to the Bigfish in Jan. your gonna need to put a tip on it. I'll be there to try it out, 166 short enough for trees & I'm guessing 15m sidecut for the groom????

    bOardski X3

    You need the X3... it is a twin tip..sort of.. and its 23cm wide.. but carves like the dickens! I rode it the most finishing up the season and it rocks.!!

    159X23 11.25 SCR.. oh and metal with built in binding riser reinforcement for plates

    Fun Stuff

    That sounds like the right tool Shred, but 159 is a little short for me at 6ft, 180#. 165 are my short boards, Nidecker for carving, Eldo for allaround.
    I like the idea reinforced risers as I've cracked a couple boards behind the binders.
    Does the X3 have enough tail lift for riding switch in the fresh??
    I'm anxious to try it out after the positive feedback on BOL.
    You gotta make it to Bigfish next year with an arsenal so I can sample the legendary X series.

    Lite

    And to think I was going to travel lite this coming season!!

    I don't think its advisable to ride the X3 switch in Fresh pow.. fresh goom ok,,, but not deep stuff.. I pick up a new Tanker 182 for that..

    I probably... will only bring two X's series boards... but that could change?

    Still undecided ... either BMES or SES or Canada...

    Big boys allMt twintip

    Yeah, I've had my eye on the tanker, close to my old lib grocer in size & shape. also really interested in Diablo Composites BX, can anyone make a direct comparison for me?? Maybe a 178 Garage if I can find 1, Dr.D, Dredman, anybody??

    The Tanker is lighter, narrower and higher nose radius than the Lib Tech. I rode the Lib Tech on and off for years. The Tanker is a much better ride for me. If you have a large foot and ride softboots on it, the Lib Tech might be better. OR, if you can find one the Tanker "Heli-Cat" Wide 187cm is the ticket. Hard to go wrong with the Rad-Air Tanker series. My personal favorite.

    Have not ridden the Diablo, however the builder is very good friend and those I know and trust like the board enough to buy one. After the leg heals I will be happy to ride one of their boards and offer an opinion. Very much looking forward to this.


    The Garage is another fine board, snappy, carves well, just shorter than I like. John is one very smart builder

    My employment situation is much more favorable now. You won't turn away a skiier that will stick to the easy stuff, will you? I've been known to pick up the tab at the bar later

    the more the merrier as always.

    Just remember what you see here stays here. You are obligated to tell everyone at home that montana sucked and you never want to go back.

    It helps keep the riff raff from emigrating north

    Wink yeah,rich people....

    bring the city with them.They should have to let us locals live in the those 20 mil $"cabins" the 50 weeks a year they don't use them.During the two weeks the richies are in town all us locals could have a giant,drunken tent party

    Dr D,if you can order up a little more sun and a little less snow(did I just say that?) for the big 09 shindig ,you can pencil us in. This year ,however, we'll plan on braving the weather whatever comes' so I can use whatever new pow board I have by then.
