    Alright ladies, I got into an argument today about helmets. So, what’s your verdict? Are they so good or no good?

    • Definitely so so good, I always wear one when I go snowboarding now. I would rather not get another concussion from hitting my head on a patch of ice (also you don’t lose your goggles when you crash).

      • Agreed! I fell backwards on a nasty rail a few years ago and cracked my head off it. After that, I ALWAYS wear a helmet. Until I make the big time, I have to rely on my brain to pay the bills, haha :D

    • I have to admit, there were days I would not wear the helmet. I board in two modes: cruising mode and tricky mode. I pretty much NEVER wear a helmet when I’m doing a cruising day. Granted, where I cruise is not very crowded, and does not really have ice EVER during the part of the year I go. I totally agree on needing the brain to pay the…[Read more]

    Bought a new Loaded Vanguard over the weekend :D I had to brag about it to someone, haha!

    • Nice! Congrats! How much did that set you back?? I’m currently saving for kite surfing lessons :D

      Boarding + Cement has always made me nervous

      • I would LOVE to try kite surfing! Have you already tried it a bit? I would imagine your arms and shoulders are like jell-o at the end of your first day, haha! Looks amazing!

        • No, not yet! [though not for lack of desire] I have been wake boarding for several years though, and that definitely tires your arms and shoulders [and back and legs] if you aren’t in super excellent shape. I imagine it will be similar in kite surfing. On that note, I’m gonna go to the gym! :P

    I need some advice… I’m booking a week off work in February to go on what I hope will be a great snowboarding trip, but I’m torn between Quebec and Vermont. Any recommendations?

    • Now you can’t take my word as expert advice, I’m only telling you what I have heard from snow-sporting friends and relatives, but I’d lean toward Quebec. It gets more natural snow, stays as powder for longer, and has a higher percentage of tricky slopes. I have also heard complaints about Vermont [specifically Killington and Smuggler’s] having…[Read more]

      • Hmm… A friend told me Stowe was kind of a bust the last time she was there. Plus, I’ve always had good luck in Quebec, so I’ll probably just plan to stick with a winner. Thanks for the feedback!

  • Someone hit my car in the parking lot at work today and left a pretty decent scratch in the bumper. Whoever did it left no trace of their contact info or even an apology. All I could think was, “and that’s why you ALWAYS LEAVE A NOTE!”
