ORLY?  I have a 164 Timeless as well!  It's a little flexier than I would like, but I could also stand to lose some weight.
Bindings are Drake Podiums [worst straps evar]
Boots are new Thirtytwo Primes
New Oakley Wisdom goggles
A helmet of some description

I'm stoked to get out this season.  Last season was horrible for me, I only made it out for three days.  :(  I hope I get some pow this winter, as it's pretty much the only reason I ride anymore.  Cruising busy groomers just doesn't do it for me anymore.

I'd say the easy runs on the mountains (sunshine or louise - probably the latter) would be good for learning.  I learned at Canyon in Red Deer, by the time you are getting the hang of it, you are at the bottom and have to wait in line and then chair to the top again and start over.

My Timeless is quite stiff actually.  It's more of a powder board me thinks.

Forgot to mention that I bought new Flow bindings last year.  I also have Oaklyey Wisdom goggles.  I'm gonna buy some new Flow boots this year to go with my bindings.  My old Forum Peter Line boots are too wide.

No helmet as of yet, but I may consider it.

I don't ski or snowboard yet but can people start praying for snow.
I have three friends who are starting to get very edgy cause there isn't any good snow on the ground.

Burton Custom Wide 172, Burton Triad Bindings and Burton Ruler Boots. I rode it all together for the first time last year and I love it. Finally I have defeated toe drag (mostly anyway).

Right on, nice to see at least on other two planker on here!  Last year i got a whole new setup, 
Line Prophet 90's with  some Dynastar Px12 jib bindings. 

I cant wait to back on the slopes, i can only hope this season is as good as last year.  If you guys haven't checked out the new mountain in Revelstoke make it priority #1.  Revy and Fernie made my season last year and i can't wait to get back to both of them.  We also hit up kicking horse and neither the snow or terrain as nearly as good as Revy or Fernie!

I definitely want to try Revelstoke.  About as much vertical as you can get, right?!

4 top to bottom runs was all i was good for (at 1 hr plus per run)the snow was so deep it was frigging unbelievable.... so awsome. 
 the mountain is so big that i was going 15-20 minutes at a time without seeing anyone at all. The place is so big, i was getting first tracks at 2 o'clock in the afternoon  :o

i have a 165 nitro magnum w/ k2 v12 bindings. it's all a few years old now but hardly used. i finally live near a ski hill worth going to now though. i got my season pass to whitewater, it's like 20-25 minutes door to lift.
