Just wanted to share a super snow forecasting site...
Sorry to be a spammer but my friend just finished making a snow forecasting site for Europe and the US and I wanted to share it because it's crazy useful. It's really easy to use, you just type in a resort and it'll give you the on and off piste forecast for the next week with snowfall and you can compare it to all the resorts nearby. http://www.wherecaniski.com
I hope this is allowed...

So, for various reasons, I'm probably going to be taking some time off from school, and I came up with the idea of becoming a ski bum - working at a ski resort, and spending the rest of my time skiing. However, it makes more sense for me to do this spring quarter than winter quarter, thus putting me right out of ski season.
Does anyone know of any ski resort pretty much anywhere (okay, U.S. is better) that is open year-round, or especially in the spring? I have googled and googled and come up with about nothing. Or, some are open year-round, but during non-winter months they host other activities, thus defeating my purpose of ski bumming. I'm specifically looking for an entry level job for the months of april, may, and june, but only those months. Does anyone know if this is possible?

A Question about the parts
I'm fairly new to snowboarding and Google has failed me. I'm looking to buy used snowboarding gear online, to get me through the first season while I'm still learning. I found a fairly good deal on the board, boots and bindings, but the bindings are missing their base plates. Are these difficult to find or expensive to replace? Would it be better to just keep looking?
Thanks in advance.

Gulmarg, situated in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, 46 kms from Srinagar Airport . Gulmarg is a mountain shelf which nestles under the protective 4250 metre height and 5 km spread of Mount Apharwat. From here it has a view over the valley of Kashmir to 8126 metre Nanga Parbat and other distant peaks. 6 Ski Lifts, 1520m Max Vertical, 4250m Highest Lift, 2730m Resort Altitude. The 3.5 km long and up to a km wide valley of Gulmarg which is about 3-sq-kms in area stands at an altitude of 2,650 metres. Known as Kashmirs premier upland hill resort, the gentle undulating meadows of Gulmarg are carpeted in a thick layer of snow. The ski resort Gulmarg has one T-bar lift, three very modern ski-lifts and a chair-lift. The best and longest skiing in Gulmarg is accessed by the Gandola Cable Car Lift, which allows a ski run of 2,213 m. Designed by Poma of France, gondola ascends extends almost to the peak of Apharwat, at an elevation of 3980 metres above sea level, providing lift served access to 1330 vertical metres of vast snow riding terrain. Due to the setting-up of Gandola Cable Car Lift from Gulmarg to Apharwat top, Gulmarg holds a position as one of the highest lift-served ski resorts in the world.

Burton + charity = awesome!
Mods, feel free to delete this if you consider it to be spam, but since it is something Burton is doing, I thought people might be interested!
Burton have teamed up with a new site (it's so new that it is still in beta testing stages), SocialVibe
to help raise money for charity (there are various causes to choose from, I chose health)
SocialVibe is a site that works with your social networks (LJ, Myspace, Facebook, etc.). You sign up, pick a brand, put a banner like the one at the bottom of this post on your profile, and simply for being active on the site you are using, you will earn points for prizes, and more importantly you will be raising money for charity. It is NOT a scam, 2 of my friends work for the site in LA. If you have any questions about this please post them in the entry and I will do my best to answer them. Otherwise,Sign up for SocialVibe and help Burton raise money for a good cause

Snowboots for Flow
I use Flow bindings, i was told in that i can use ANY boot on Flow bindings. I found the perfect boots, the only ones that felt perfect but I am having a problem with my 32 lashed for woman. I used them in total like 7 days and they broke inside (the lace holder for the inner boot) and also the sole is getting loose. I went to ask in a shop and they told me that 32 lashed are not good for flow bindings because of the sole getting loose. I don't know what to do, if i get the money back for my boots (i must, really) i would like to get a new pair but which brand? i tried on the flow boots and i didn't like how they fit so if anyone has any suggestions...thanks a billion!

Some info on carving?
Hello everyone :)
I was wondering has anyone of you ever seen some good info on carving on the net - techniques, howto's etc? Video's would be good, but my connection is lame so I might not be able to download something too big. Ideally I'd like some good written text with illustrations. By now all I've found has been this:
I know learning by that sort of stuff might be stupid, but then if you haven't got an instructor I guess it's the only way.

Hello, fellow skiers!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
We’re flying to Colorado, DEN, tomorrow, Thursday, early morning.
We’re staying in Vail in hopes for new snow on Friday/Saturday.
We’re also considering driving to Keystone as they have night skiing open or so their web site says.
I would like to get your recommendations/comments on any other resorts we should check out this time of year (not more than 1 hr drive from Vail) and any tips for off the mountains activities (restaurants, etc.) are greatly appreciated.

Skiing with phone's pda's etc
Hi everyone :)
Long time since I posted here, but the season isn't that far away.
Anyway, I've bought a phone/pda this summer. Now with the joy of the new toy came the concern of taking it with me to the slopes. I can of course take to the old family chest and find some old hard core siemens or alcatel but still I wanted to ask, although I know it might sound stupid.
Do any of you guys go skiing or snowboarding with such fragile items? If so how do you carry them?
My old phone was a SE t610, quite robust by itself, and my ski suit has a small pocket located somewhere around the back of the thigh. I don't know how reasonable that is, but I carried my phone in there and everything was ok. Now with the pda it's different, first it's bigger and second it's way more fragile.
I was wondering also, possibly there are some cases for that kind of stuff around ?

Chrismas skiing in Colorado
Going to Colorado for the first time.
How do I choose the resort?
So far looking at Breckenridge and Keystone, and Vail. How do those compare?
Will there be snow in December?
Where do I go for discounted tickets and/or reasonable lodging? We will be renting a car, but how are usually road conditions in December?
thanks for any suggestions
