  • Mtn loyalist/passholder vs independent/chase the snow week to week.. debate on!!!!

    100% mountain/pass loyalist here (no surprise at all to my AZ crew I'm sure!!) An "Ugly" weather/snow conditions day/few runs on the hill PLUS a fun afternoon plus a few beers with friends, often as I near 50, are a "better"/ more fufilling day than if I'd been out on the back deck grille all night supervision the building of…

  • Loon Demo day – 12/15/18

    Did the demo day at Loon today. Pretty good deal for $10. I tried about ten different skis. They had Elan, Volkl, Head, K2, and Rossi there for the main brands, and then a few less well known brands like Amalgam and Meier. They were supposed to have Atomic and Blizzard too, but they weren't there for some reason. demo_stands.jpg…

  • Killington 12/13/18

The place was pretty deserted, so I had my run of the place. Lots of stuff is roped off, but there were plenty of open trails too. Looks like they are…

    It has been a long while since we posted on here and thought this next posts would be welcome by some of you. We are all off to a great season, though we are still trying to make heads or tails on where we will ski next, though we are certain we will be skiing somewhere. This was an article…

  • Teaching the girlfriend to ski. Where to go for a first timer?

    My girlfriend wants to learn to ski. I'm horrified to try and teach her myself mostly because I have been skiing so long that I don't remember what it was like to learn. Seems best to just let the professionals handle it. So I am curious if anyone here learned to ski as an adult or has recently put a…
