Nice!!! :) Yeah I love the half-pipe, such a cool feeling!! I don't really ride park much anymore just b/c my buddies up here don't really like it. So we go for more the big mountain/backcountry riding now. Snocross is awesome tho!! I would love to do that, but all these action sports guys are truly insane.

If you wanna see truly insane check this out:

Yeah, whistler is pretty much the Aspen of BC but honestly the lift prices aren't much different than riding in Tahoe (where I grew up). Its sad but true.

The go pro is definitely pretty sick, the thing is tiny and gets decent 1080p video. The coolest part of it is that its waterproof up to 180 ft so I'm going to use it for diving this summer. But you can use it for everything from snowboarding to surfing to autosports, pretty versatile. Only negative is you look like a complete dork if you helmet mount it, :lol: so i made this custom handheld mount so I can just throw it in my jacket all the time.

Stoked for the lyrics ;) Might have to dig up the auto-tune that i made for fun :lol:

lift ticket prices perhaps....but you still need to fly up there first then sleep and eat too.... pretty crowded and definitely highway robbery ...:)

and I agree....the helmet-mounted ones really look dorky....

yup, regarding the massacre of Lady Gaga's lyrics, I'm pretty stoked too or did I just bite more than I could chew...the sick lyrics are coming soon...(do you ever talk normal, Zach T? ;))..

Yeah, luckily we can drive from here to whistler, and its not too bad, but you're right, lodging and food/booze are ridiculous. Well booze in BC in general is expensive. But we would always hit up whistler for 'college invasion weekend' which was basically just the spring break weekend of winter, lol. Fun stuff, but expensive.

I talk normal occasionally ;) I do have a professional side, just not when i'm talkin about shreddin the epic gnar gnar pow pow! Its not easy being steezy! :blink: (Actually that last line kills me, can't believe I even typed that...haha)

oh yeah..the cheap tourists....:lol:...and booze is expensive anywhere in Canada...and if you're caught bringing in more than you should from south of the border...you can get in real trouble...:P..and "shreddin the epic gnar gnar pow pow"...and "steezy"....hah...so sick...:D...

btw, can we have an update on how many votes you've already got? 201?

The Canadians prefer to smoke the psychoactive drugs, eh?

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.

the red necks still outnumber the epicures then... :P
And snow we had until February, but more wet snow that quickly degraded to grey slush ;)
