i’ll be in denver the weekend of 12/13-14: anyone going out and need another partner? sorry, i’ve got plenty of experience, but not in this area, so would go wherever you chose.
as i’m moving to los angeles in a few months, i’m glad to see there is some stoke in the area. hope san g will satisfy my needs to get in some good hiking and turns on the weekends. looking forward to perhaps meeting a few of you next yr.
I might be interested in this. Anyone free over xmas? like 12/25-12/28?
i also spent a week last summer at nevados de chillan and second everyone else’s recommendation. powder for days long after a storm. no crowds. will hopefully be back the first week of august again this year. keep us posted on your plans. i really want to hit las lenas, but chile is just simply easier to get to, and i’m limited on time.
i’m just interested in the airbag and cylinder (already have a compatible pack). would you sell that alone? price?
for what it’s worth, i am a 5’8.5″ ~150# female, inbounds boards are a 155 gnu bpro and an old 156 custom x (i’m not a park/rails rider), my split is a 158 solution and i love it. floats great. rode it for a week inbounds once on a trip too (since was limited in amount of gear i could take with me) and it has become my new favorite board overall.
some of us unfortunately cannot not practically test ride all splitboard options before buying because of where we live. i had only test rode a few Priors before purchasing the solution. all i knew was i don’t like the bpro enough for the conditions it needs to handle in the BC and i really didn’t like the priors i test rode, so i based the purchase off of reviews. i guess i got lucky. the decision was between a 156 womens solution and a 158 mens solution. i wanted the stiffer flex of the mens, but whether i would be happy with the women’s board and have saved a bit of weight, i’m not sure.
i talked to lisa at venture a lot too. they have a very nice range of boards that is female-friendly, however i found that their boards seemed heavier overall, and as a chick who rides w/ male skiers mostly, i’ve tried to cut as much weight on my gear as possible so as not to be the tired chick straggler at the end of the day!October 27, 2013 at 3:46 pm in reply to: Anyone ridden Jones Solution/flagship and Hovercraft? #655624
so what tends to be your go-to board for a day in the BC when you know you’re going to have mixed conditions (ie. not all nice deep pow)? i love my solution split, am debating whether to add a hover split to the quiver – will i really use it that often? (i don’t have the luxury of just going out on pow days).
I don’t live in the mid-atlantic anymore, but will be in the northern VA area over thanksgiving. if the snow gods cooperate, would definitely be up for some touring then, maybe somewhere in WVa.
i can be found @janine_oliver
i’m headed to chillan for the beginning of august (first week or so). unfortunately we’ll miss each other. anyone else headed to chile then?
