TRS is def comparable to the t.rice in flex. I've ridden both but keep going back to the skate banana as my daily driver.
It's less about skill level and more about how you like to ride. I think anyone intermediate to expert could have a blast on a TRS.
Believe in the banana.
Their app works ok if you just want to trim it. On a Mac I use iMovie.
Nope, just volume.
Your friend will want the 30" for sure. You could likely get by with the 25"
Weight recos are under specs on the MSR site:
Better yet - invest in a splitboard!
I second Smith. I've got a big face and went fro a-frames to smith phenoms last year.
It's got a wood core so you're good to go.
yep, easily. you can probably fit a small backpack or shove a bunch of clothes in with it as well.
This annoys me with one of my jackets that has tighter cuffs. If you're wearing a loose jacket you're all good otherwise it's a tucking and shoving game.
I went to my local retail shop and they ordered me some direct from salomon. for some reason salomon would only deal with the shop, not me.
159 would be money. I'm bigger than you but prefer a smaller board and the 159 is my daily driver in all conditions. You might be able get away with a 156 at your weight on a skate banana since it rides bigger but I would totally recommend a 159.
Yep, should work with pretty much all android phones since they use the standard headphone jack.
No way on the 50". if you have factory rails you'll probably only be able to fit the 32".
I have a 2009 Outback. No need to mount this backwards it literally fits like a glove. I have about .5" clearance when the rear hatch is open. Just make sure your front cross bar is all the way forward.
i would definitely not try it if you love your dog. nylon straps and plastic clips? doubtful.
No, you don't need to have the same type of beacon (I have a DTS tracker (easier to use than the ortovox IMO) and my friends have different models. Depending on where you live, there are classes available for basic beacon usage, backcountry survival, and snow science (Avy 1, etc). I'd highly recommend investing in at least a basic course when the snow hits again. Your friends will live to thank you for it.
Yes, it'll fit. Unless you have a very light bike I recommend getting the adapter cross bars though. The factory racks on foresters are kind of flimsy to support a bike(s).
