    My friend rides with Cartels too and properly adores them, so that's why I bought the Stilettos, and they're fab!

    Am I right in thinking Never Summer's are known for their banana type boards? I really wanted to try out a Lib Tech, but they're so hard to get hold of for testing, and I don't think I've seen them in TSA/Snow + Rock type places. But Burton are doing a full range of v-rockers for the coming season so cue major excitement!

    I'd love to go outside of Europe to say, America, Canada- and the powder is meant to be awesome in Japan! But Austria definitely has a hold on our hearts! Are the lift passes quite expensive in Colorado, compared to Europe?

    Not sure how much they are to be honest when i go over i work as a teacher / rep. I know they arnt cheap though. For a week in the snow at aspen I have to do 3 days teaching, all the beer I can drink every night, my hotel room and 4 days to do as much boarding as I want usually cost me about 300.
    We usually do aspen or crested butte but i tend to make a bit of a raod trip out of it as I have friends I stay with all over the states when I go.

    Havent made it over to Japan yet but have heard good things. Chile is really cool as well.

    ps

    These are never summer boards http://www.neversummer.com/

    Ahh okay. My family were looking at Whistler a couple of years back, and I think someone warned us the lift passes were pretty hefty there.

    How long have you been teaching for? That sounds so awesome- I'd love to do that for a few seasons!

    Three weeks, wow. I'm generally knackered by week one!

    Can you not get her to go with you? It's odd- winter sports holidays are like Marmite, love or hate!

    Ive asked if she would like to come but she's never done it so on my days off id have to spend them teaching her. My idea was to take her to chill factore so she could get the basics - dont think she is convinced though.

    Har, I always end up adding to this thread when someone else says they snowboard >.< But anyway.

    Nice board you have there. I hired that a couple of years back, and felt like crying when I had to give it back!

    I've been going to the Hemel Hempstead snow centre this year, but I'm going over to MK Xscape for the Big Bang Snowboard Show on the 10th, which I'm dead excited about. I've saved up enough for a nice freestyle board, and I'll demo some there, but I'm thinking the Burton Social or Lipstick, K2 Va Va Voom rocker version, or the Ride Fever.

    Where are you off too in in January then?
