  • Preseason Ski/Snowboard Prep

    I would be curious how many people do their own prep or just take the skis to the shop. Last year a built a tuning station where I waxed and sharpened edges. It seemed to have worked out pretty well. I am about to get a base grind since I can not do that at home and repeat the same…

  • What’s in your gear bag?

  • Ski Mtn Reality Show

    See below - I hope this is not a Hunter.... Several years ago there was a production company at Hunter auditioning for this. Orville was still alive, and no one could believe he would let it happen. The New York Daily News is breathlessly reporting (or warning) that the creators of the once immensely popular “Jersey Shore” TV-er may be…
