Re: Supporting the beast.

That is an impressive resume Harris I never even saw a ski resort until after high school. I was never a " light is right" guy, being an early adapter to heay gear. I wouldn't be impressed. There are a lot of guys and galls out there who have done much more BC Telemark skiing than I have....

Re: The crappiest conditions ever?

We need to ski together. You nailed it as far as how it feels to move to Seattle. There are some nice people here, many in fact, but the jerks are so overtly present it is hard to see the forest through the trees. On the nice side, I ski mid week (work weekends) and a lot of retired folks ski then....

Re: Supporting the beast.

I sent this as a private message to someone, edited a few times, but I feel the need to share it on this posting. It is something I firmly believe. It might stir some shit, but I'm okay with that. "Since you brought it up, here are the facts: I started skiing when I was 7 and instantly was in l...

Re: Supporting the beast.

oooops I kinda think Telemark is something SPECIAL....It gives one the access to the world of Nature where insights abound....Unfortunately skiing on all that downhill "stuff" isn't going get you very far on a journey into the unknown...And Schifferin is a wonder....Totally fantastic...TM...

Re: Supporting the beast.

My first real GF in high school was a sponsored regular JO medalist in SL and GS. She was amazing, and worked here ass on, but she never made the US ski team. People have no idea just how special someone has to be to be in Mikaela's caliber.
