Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

View from top of Anthony Lakes chairlift (7900 ft.) , facing south (groomed Alpine ski trails, which I was skiing are north of this location, XC trails to northwest).

Re: How was your season?

As good as the previous year (my first winter in WA), but very different. I think I did about 5 days of some kind of (ungroomed XC) in Walla Walla, where we apparently don't normally get much snowfall. It replaced my daily walk for a period of time, since the sidewalks were too dangerous--people don...

KKR skis anyone?

Newell Brands was actually a good company--they recalled and replaced some knives for me, and even added a free gift. Not sure about KKR. HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Newell Brands Inc. (NYSE:NWL) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its Winter Sports businesses, inclus...

Re: Nordic backcountry setup for above treeline

I am a distance-oriented Xc skier and don't own any skis that wide, so `I won't comment on downhill capabilities of skis and keep my comments in context. 1. Unless you are skiing late season or on previously used trails, I think you will typically find the snow in your location quite powdery. Theref...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

My foray into Alpine skiing. View from the top of the main lift at Bluewood (SE WA State). There is still winter above 4000 ft. here. Conditions today--frozen surface in morning, softened in early afternoon--temperatures up to 40 (F). It was partly cloudy, except when I happened to be taking the pic...

Re: A lite pow day in WA

There's enough snow for a few more weeks of skiing at Bluewood (and xc skiing in Blue Mountains), but it's raining today.

Re: For sale/Trade - 75mm boots - alpina/Scarpa/BD

Don't know if the Alaska fits like the Alpina BC1550, but I have the size 44 BC1550 and my shoe size is usually 10 1/2. I think 44 will be a bit small for you.

For the heavy telemarkers, there is already a separate forum http://www.earnyourturns.com . From my time on the old telemarktips and on the forementioned forum, the "heavy" telemarkers look down on XCD skiers as "meadowskippers"-- which is probably why they abandoned or didn't c...

Re: New Moderator

.... I am also in the PNW, but the only thing we have in common with the Cascades is we get most of the same storms. They dump less, but much drier snow, in the Blue Mountains and Elkhorns, where I ski. Looking to get back to the Elkhorns one of these days. Used to ski Anthony Lakes in younger year...
