Just a quick post after my first weekend back on the slopes this season. It was the most gorgeous, clear opening weekend ever. I posted a couple shots from the trip to my Instagram. A large group headed up to Stowe Mountain Resort in several different cars for a fun little snowboard trip. I had the chance to stop by the Burton Flagship Store and Headquarters in Burlington, Vermont. As you have probably noticed from my blog, I have always been a strong supporter of the Burton brand and product line. However, I was truly so disappointed with a customer service experience this past weekend. So much so, that I will probably avoid buying any Burton products moving forward.
I don’t want to get into the details of the experience, but I am looking forward to exploring some new snow apparel and gear through other brands. Which leads me to this blog post. I fell in love with these 3 women’s snowboard jackets by Volcom and DC. My personal favorite, of course, is the baby blue DC jacket. I am also so obsessed with these North Face soft shell pants. I’m currently using their baby blue snow pants that I have owned since elementary school!! You might remember from my Snowboarding Gift Guide last holiday season, that I love the soft shell pants for boarding. The slim fit is just so comfortable. Really looking forward to making a little splurge for this white North Face pair this year!
Keep an eye out for more Gift Guide 2014 posts as we get closer to the holiday season.
