The Morrow Brothers live about 20 minutes north of me.

Mine is the revert:

But my graphics are slightly different. I also have a 10 wedge under the rear binding for power turns at 80mph+

On the slopes, I wear black and only black. Don't know why, it'* just a tradition that started some time ago. On the really bitter days, I'll wear my shorty waterskiing wetsuit underneath. Toasty warm.

I board primarily on Mt Hood at Timberline. The Magic Mile is a quad-express chair above the treeline. So you get an unobstucted mile down the mountain with no trees to build up speed, then as you enter the treeline, you can go surfing at breakneck speeds all the way to the bottom of the lower runs.


Timberline is one of the few places in the US with year-round skiing. The Glacier is groomed all year, and the US ski team trains up there on the Palmer run in the summer.
In the winter, the Palmer lift isn't even VISIBLE buried under winter snow. That'* the uppermost lift in that map, with the Magic Mile being the second one down from the top. You can board for a LONG time before you have to catch another lift.

I've got some old boarding pics around somewhere. I'll dig 'em out and scan. I used to go up every weekend with a couple girls from work (taught both to board). Drove my 89 Cutlas Calais Quad4 (5-speed) with all-season tires up there every weekend with no chains or studs.

One of the girls, Karmen, was so light, I could help her off the lift when she was learning by holding her up by the back of her collar.
