Keystone, Breckenridge, Vail, A Basin, Beaver Creek!
I have these in the black. They look great but honestly? If you want to stay dry or want to be able to spend a full day on the slopes, these aren't going to keep you very try, which was somewhat disappointing.
These have plenty of room for socks...I ordered smalls and am 5 ft 7 in and they fit perfectly. The waistband is a bit loser than I'd like so shirts dont stay tucked in...but such is life. Also, if you don't want them to get little lint balls, hang dry them! Otherwise, these are a great and affordable base layer, and I definitely would recommend them.
I love these. In fact I could PROBABLY live in them. I'm 5 foot 7 in, 125 lbs and ordered the SMALLs which fit perfectly. One important factor to keep in mind is that you should NOT dry these in the dryer. They will got tons of little lint balls -- not so cute! if you hang dry them, they retain their shape but don't get the little lint balls that are oh so annoying. I definitely still recommend getting these.
I am 5 foot 7 inches and usually wear a size 4 in jeans. I weigh 125 and I ordered the size small which fit perfectly. These are super soft and feel very, very warm and will be a base layer for the coldest of days. If you get cold often, cozy up in these!
You also might need to detune your nose and tail! The biggest issue I had with my feelgood sounds very similar to what you have described. Detuning the nose and tail can be done at most shops or if you have a heavy metal file you can do it yourself but pushing the file straight down over the nose and tail portions of the board to where the effective edge begins. This should help :) Since you don't know what you're doing, try youtubing it to see if there is a video that explains this, or I am sure you can find something on google. Little known fact is that when the factory edges your board, it is extremely sharp and thus very easy to catch edges until they naturally detune over time :)
This board is excellent for all mountain riding, however when it comes to riding in the park, it is way too stiff to really grab rails. The directional shape also makes riding switch far more difficult. It's great in powder, though. The board is also pretty difficult to butter because of how stiff it is. If you're a girl that likes to play, I would recommend finding a softer board. =)
This pack is very well made and seems like it will hold up to quite a bit of abuse. I have the black paris color and its mucho fun. When all strapped up properly it puts minimal stress on your back just like it should, even with a board and gear all piled in it. The hydration sleeve is also a huge plus =) Overall you can't go wrong with this pack.
I have these pants in the red and in the green stripe. They are GREAT. They genuinely keep you dry, even in the sloppy spring conditions, and are actually LONG enough ( I have a problem with snowboarding pants being far shorter than I would like ). I'm 5'7", 125 lbs, usually a size 4/6 in jeans and got MEDIUMS. I actually would have been fine with a small but I like to wear my pants a little loose when I board. I definitely would recommend these. They are worth the $$ and will make you oh-so-happy. =)
I usually wear a size 4-6 in jeans from American Eagle. I ordered these pants in a size small. They are definitely snug, but in my opinion that is how a base layer should fit. They go down to right above the ankle and are designed to go inside your boot when you wear them, so if you don't like that, I would recommend going with the "shant" version of these because those will not go into your boot. The only thing is that I wish they went up a little higher on the waist...as I like to tuck whatever top baselayer I'm wearing into the bottoms. Other than that, no complaints and I would buy them again.
I can't stress enough that you should go with your NORMAL shoe size...whatever you'd wear for tennis shoes (not heels). They will be snug, uncomfortable, and will probably make you want to cry if you hit up the hill the first day without having worn the boots around your apartment/house to break them in, and will still be very snug the first few days you ride them. HOWEVER, once they "pack out", the boots become like toasty little yummy foot huggers that hold you to your board in the most responsive way possible. You are going to have to suffer through the first few days but if you get a size that is comfortable from the get go, they will also pack out and be HUGE. I have two pairs of these boots and absolutely adore them. I have fairly normal feet but long toes and my toes never feel smooshed. Plenty of toe room once they pack out :)
