  • Manly man skis, get them here…

    Great deal on a pair of skis for when you're ready to step it up. Unfortunately, I don't need a 3rd pair of DH boards. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-Vo...-/311350649305

  • RIP, Dave Scott (1947-2015) Member of my Skiing Family

    A member of my skiing family at Burke passed this weekend. Dave Scott was the ying to his brother's yang, a passionate outdoorsman, a true gentleman, and a friend of mine since 2006.

  • Why People Don’t Ski?

    Interesting article on a survey done with marketers and non-skiers to find out why people chose not to ski. http://www.slopefillers.com/why-people-dont-ski/ Really surprised by the disparity between the two groups with cost. Would have thought that to be pretty high on the list. I guess if you are a non-skier, you might not have any idea what it actually cost to…
