  1. Summary: very poor response, considering we dished out 200+ (300?) lift tickets.

    Honestly, we're not happy about it.


    But of course many thanks to the people who did.


    Currently thinking about what we want to do for the coming season.


    That's simply not on in my books! I know everyone's busy, blah, blah, blah, but if people aren't prepared to put back in what they've got out (if you get my gist), then I'd quite understand if you felt it was more hassle than it's worth to keep it going! :thumbsup:

  2. Sorry I missed this thread MagSeven. I went camping and did a bit of cycling on Sado four summers ago and really enjoyed it, so I'm glad it all worked out well in the end. :thumbsup: Am also glad to see that you made it to the Big G though not sure that qualifies you for Club Granview status, as you didn't grace the hallowed slopes. It's a bit like when my plane landed at Sao Paulo en route to Buenos Aires. I had to stay on the plane while the Brazil-bound passengers disembarked, so I never touched Brazilian soil and therefore can't add Brazil to the list of countries I've visited! ;)

  3. Metabo, that's my local slope - literally just up the road from me!! :wave: I checked it out when I first moved into the area a few years ago but the "snow" looked like it would do nasty things to the base of my then new board (which I wanted to try out) so I decided to give it a miss. I've been back a couple of times since when I've been nearby but have never ridden there, so it's good to read what it's like! :thumbsup:


    However, whilst I'm glad you came all the way down to my neck of the woods, I'm a little sad that you never popped in to say hello! :sadface:

  4. So how was it, Mick? I tuned just in time to see them wave good-bye to Gassan on the bus.


    It was ok! :thumbsup: & having just seen the photos taken by you and Rock-hand, it was perfect timing! :clap:


    The program is actually about travelling to places by bus, but as that's what I usually end up doing it was quite useful! Whether by choice or chance, they went there on the opening day and skied/rode down, so I'm guessing there's some rental facilities there unless the trip was completely staged!


    In any event, I'm developing a Granview-like desire to visit there but knowing how long it takes me to plan things, it might have to be a 2015 venture!! ;)


    Btw Metabo, what does a Gassan sticker look like? Could you post a pic of the one on your son's board? Cheers! :thumbsup:

  5. Welcome to the dark side onehunga!! :clap: Obviously you saw the light at our grail day at Granview ;)


    As for boots, I'd agree with what's been said above about going for a tighter fit. In an ideal world you would try the boots on and then strap yourself onto a board, because that's going to feel and fit differently to just walking around a shop. With my first pair of boots (Burton) I made the mistake of buying a pair that was confortable instore but ended up with heel lift problems on the slopes. My next pair (Salomon) were better but with my last ones, I actually went down a size so that my big toe rubs/hurts a bit when I walk but is a perfect fit when riding. Hope that helps! :wave:
