Well, boarding season is coming up and I want to be ready this year. I didn't get a chance to shoot any boarding at all last year due to work.

When there aren't parks around, do you talk to the park management and see if it's ok if you just walk up the mountain? I'm a little bit lost on the actual process of how you physically get the shots.

Ahh, that's it I guess...I thought I had a few more questions, but I can't seem to remember them right now.

i dont know about where you are from but here in Canada you have to pay to be on the slope because the lift ticket has the legal waiver on the backside, without a lift pass you would be kicked off the mountain for safey and insurance. however at events where there are spectators you are allowed to walk around the event. best thing to do would be to go up to the mountain and ride for a little while, when you need a break go hang out in the park and snapp some pics...but events are the way to go and you know everyone riding at them is giving 110% so you will get some good tricks.

....if you are dressed in snow gear the chances of them asking you to leave are slim...unless they catch you walking up the mountain.

I've never really had issues as long as I didn't cause a problem and didn't get in the way of patrons.
But yes, events are indeed the way to go.

I'm very interested in this as well. What gear do you bring with you to get the shots? I'm thinking about tracking down a couple good snowboarders and trying to get some good shots but I wonder if the snow will act as a huge reflector or if my flash/ light-stand/ reflector would be beneficial.

i use flash a fair bit for shooting snow, the shadows are still very harsh on a bright day because of the camera metering for the sky or snow

How about shooting manual with a cp to limit the evaluation/snow issues?
