If I had the ear of a mountainboard company executive..... ....then I would do everything in my power to make sure that in the next James Bond film, Bond escapes from the enemy fortress in the mountains on his trusty mountainboard, machine gunning down several henchmen as he (AJ in a suit) pulls off...

good grief - more fair weather boarders! :D
If it's early start, then I'm all for that, just have the coffees at the ready.
Will chuck in both my boards as well, check the sites over and we'll know more for next time.
Oh, and arse pads - have saved my ass many a time! Wouldn't ride without them.

BD, those photos look like mine did when I had a dodgy memory card - funny colours and parts of the image in the wrong place!
Looks MBS board shaped, what length is the deck?
Does it also look like the trucks are on backwards in the second thumbnail?
More pics required! :)

Nice couple of vids, Dave, cheers for taking the time to upload these. Loved a couple of snow shots - so unexpected when so used to a backdrop of greens and browns. On the subject of old videos, I can't believe you can still buy noSno's "us and friends" on video. I'd love to watch this but don't hav...

Doh! Are you or your misses a fair weather boarder Jasper? ;-D
Brilliant fun to get out when its raining - pull out some huge laid-out power slides and rip up that slope!
Then afterwards, get the misses out of those wet clothes and continue the fun!

Ahhh, now your asking! No idea, everyone I've seen have used Google Maps/Earth for what you are asking.
I only use bing maps for 25k mapping and birds eye view.

Bing Maps - Now with 1:25000

From experience I've found that many mountainboarders are also map fans; I think its down to us scouring contours to find new and exciting slopes to ride. Anyway apologies if this is only news, but from last week Bing Maps (formally Live Search) now shows OS maps at 1:25,000. http://www.bing.com/map...

On a similar note, anyone here read 23 Sessions Later? I know Remolition gave it a favourable review.
