John's Bio

I am from Meridian ID, I grew up at Bogus Basin Ski Resort outside of Boise. I could make it from my house to the lift in 35 min. I have lived in Provo for 4 years now and depending on the snow fall I shred at Park City or the Bird. I love it when you can snowboard in 2 feet of powder the last week of April!

I take this tool with me every where I go. It small enough to fit in any pocket of my jackets so If I need to tweak my bindings or help another snowboarder out, its there. The bits have gotten a little bit rusty, but thats probably because I don't clean it out very often. Overall a great tool.

I have been using smith Phenom Googles for about 4 years now. I got a special edition pair with a sick design. They are super comfortable, and the lenses are very durable. I have run my face across rails and icy landings and they still have not broken.

They cost a lot, but thats because they are the best. If you don't want to ever worry about your gloves freezing up on you and your hands getting wet and the glove falling apart, than you might as well throw down for these mitts. You will not be disappointed. The problem I have had with mitts in the past is the inner lining not feeling the most comfortable with my fingers, but these mitts make your fingers feel like there vacationing in Hawaii.

I have used this Jack on multiple occasions. What I loved most about it were the Check pockets. I put an extra pair of googles, gloves, and snacks in the pockets instead of taking up my backpack. The Jacket wasn't bulky at all and kept me warm and dry even after taking a few dives into some deep powder. Plus it looks cool!

I used these gloves for one season and they started to fall apart. There not Burton's highest end glove, but i expected more out of them. The seams ripped between the fingers and the fabric froze during icy conditions. If you want a high quality glove that will never let you down, I would recommend throwing down the extra money and get the Burton Oven Mitts.

I have had the Mission backpack for a few years now. I originally bought it use while snowboarding, but it turned into a school backpack. Its got enough room for you snacks, an extra pair of gloves and the essentials though. Straps are comfy and keep the back tight to the body. The pack is a little small and not really built to carry a snowboard, so I wouldn't suggest it for that, but overall its a pretty cool sleek backpack for everyday use.

I bought these gloves 3 seasons ago and they work pretty good in the park and in warmish conditions. If it gets icy cold the gloves freeze up and take a while to thaw out. The material around the thumb started to peel off after the second season, but I was pretty hard on them. Overall a pretty good glove for the price.

This is a good Bag for storing your board or preventing scratches while traveling in the car. Its good for the price, but if you want to store or haul multiple boards and gear, I would suggest going with something a little bigger.

So I recently bought a Toyota Rav4L for my wife and I (she didn't want a 4-runner) so i got a little harassment from my friends for driving a chick car to the mountain. Once I put a rack on top and attached a Fairing with some cool stickers it's a little easier to drive and hold my head up high. haha

I got the burton AK snowboarding pants last year and they have net let me down. If you have a few extra dollars to spend to get the AK series gear it is WORTH it. I never had to layer with these pants. Just throw some shorts on underneath and go. I stayed completely warm and dry in some of the coldest and windiest days up at Snowbird Resort in Utah, and trust me, IT was cold.

With a size 10 boot you are right on the edge of a medium binding and a large binding. If you want to easily jump in and out of the bindings and don't mind a little wiggle room, then go with the large bindings, if you want to spend a little extra effort adjusting straps and getting into the binding for super snug fit, then go with the medium bindings. All and all take your boots into a shop and test em out before you buy!
