    I got my issue. Drew and BCR being profiled crack me up. Hopefully they sent you the gear they reviewed as being a fit for you guys.

    The snowboard review itself was pretty weak imo. I don’t know why they can’t do it more like they did the ski gear review. Some opinion but not much on what testers experienced as they had on the ski gear. It was more of a “hey this is cool buy this” gear review. Which a lot of it was, but come on.

    Congrats guys on being in the mag. You are now rock stars! 😆

    Kill,

    Yeah definitely a different formula than the typical ski/board review. Whatever though…I’m just stoked to help them out and get a little exposure.

    Personally I think the best board review ever was the one in Couloir a couple of seasons back. The format, criteria, and author really did an outstanding job! 😉

    Yeah, that was the best one I have ever seen! 😆

    They should commision that author to write several articles a year. 8)

    Just got my copy. I love the issue. The reviews could’ve been better though agreed. Turns out i know one of the other testers too, rode with him in Jackson hole last year. Small world

    Add one more to the list too! New member powder_tracker was also part of the review. 8)

    I heard that BCR can now afford to have other people do his hikes.

    Did you snowshoe or bootpack when you rode the K2 Eldo? 😕

    I was really stoked to see so much snowboard coverage in this BC issue with more snowboard ads, pics, and reviews than usual.

    Props to Julie Zell on making the cover, too.

    Can I touch you Drew?

    With powder tracker and Scott Newsome doing the review too, that sounds like a splitboard.com takeover. 😯

    Is Susan Mol on the forum yet?

    I agree but damn was that review weak. Why waste the print with such useless info? I’d much rather just have more killer photography. I’ve never been big fan of magazine gear reviews anyway. There’s so much better info on sites like this one.

    ahhh, yes.

    After actually reading the review, I kinda came to that conclusion. 😕

    Well, BCR….
    Do you like the boards they picked for ya?

    Man speaking of bad reviews. Anyone catch the Couloir mag board review? I thought the bc mag one was bad. It looks like a masterpiece compare to Couloir’s.

    Read it last night, not super impressed. Then again maybe we should be happy to be included… Though it was interesting to read very different takes on boots and binding from skilled riders.
