  • Partial Removal of heavy ski wax layer

    Hi All, Last Spring, I put a heavy coating of ski wax on for Summer/Autumn storage. I'd like NOT to have to scrape it all off and apply a fresh lighter coat. I'd like to try heating the storage coat so it's easily removed with a scraper, only leaving a light coat to scrub and buff, and be good to…

  • Alps avi kills 3

    ...with 1 more still missing. Meanwhile "In France, two employees at the Morillon ski resort died when the avalanche-control charges they were trying to set accidentally went off....Austria has seen record snowfall....On Friday, troops airlifted 66 German students and teachers to safety, after they became stranded." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46854663 Let's be careful out there.

    Date: 1/15/2018 Resort: Crotched Mountain Conditions: Man made, packed powder Report: So today I did a brief morning session up at Crotched, as I have not been on my skis in a week or so.

I have no trouble on Western ones when its open below you..this was a different story.…

  • Coldest you have ever skied?

    Friday and Saturday broke the record for me with -45 windchill recorded at the top of Stowe. I've never stayed out in such cold temps..it took its toll though. Saturday was a little better at -30 but still..this is insane. The wind on Friday was insane, blew it all into the trees but lower angle pow remained. A good 4…

  • Blue Boy has pass pulled at Hunter!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes!!! For poaching , but being an AH for sure. Heard he was told to check back in a week to see if it is pulled for good. Which means "give us a week to have our lawyer pull the reject notice together" There is no way they will give him it back. Everyone complains about him, ski patrol has…
