Stop the SKI Tax

For those of you that live in New York and Ski, snowboard or do other outdoor recreational activities, the stupid governor of this state has decided to propose a 4 percent tax on all lift tickets, lessons and other outdoor activities.


Please show some support for stopping this tax and visit the site  http://www.stoptheskitax.com/


This is a total bs tax and it needs to be stopped before it is passed.

X Games

Anybody watching this years X Games?  Its a good chance to see real athletes participating in a sport, not the over paid, fat, lazy slobs that are in most of the bigger sports today.

What's Your Home Resort, where did you learn?

If you snowboard, what is your home resort? and where did you first learn to ride if it was a different place

My home resort is Bristol Mountain, I learned there several years ago by taking a 3 day learn to snowboard camp.  Bristol is probably one of the top places to ride at in New York.  Its a relatively big mountain and there's something for everybody whether you like the groomed hills, moguls or the parks.  And the thing thats nice about Bristol is the owners/managers are always investing money into the mountain, each year more stuff is added and improved. 

If you're thinking about a trip, I strongly recommend going to Bristol.  Its not the size of resorts out west or resorts in Vermont, there are only 33 trails but like I said before its probably one of the top places in New York to board.  I certainly wouldn't go anywhere else.

How many of you are snowboarders?

Just curious, how many of you are snowboarders, and where is your home resort?  Also if you've been to any good areas on the east coast preferably in the Vermont/ Maine area I'm interested to hear where because I'm looking at going somewhere sometime in the near future.  I was thinking Killington but if there are other good Mountains I'd like to know
