It looks like the destination for 2009 is going to be Morzine; one of Best Snowboarding Resorts in Europe!
There are one or two things that I’d like to buy this season: most importantly, a new snowboard. My Nitro T2 has taken a bit of a beating riding the snowflex at Halifax – plus I’m ready for a change. I’m thinking of returning to something a little shorter and softer, like the Kink, but again I think I’ll try something new there.
I’d also like to get a new travel bag – something like the Dakine Split Roller. It’s not absolutely essential (neither is the board), but I am without a bag so I guess I need something.
On the flip side, I’ve got one or two things I’d like to sell: a BCA Tacker DTS (avalanche transceiver) and an accompanying probe. I’ve used mine quite a bit, well practiced with it, and I rate it highly. I bought 4 last season for our group but ended up only needing 3, so there’s a brand new one left over. At some point I’m gonna put it on eBay, but if you’re interested, drop me an email. I’ll probably post about it again before it goes to the auction…
