Re: When do people find time to ski??

I live in SE Mi. Back in the days when I was a concrete contractor I had time in the winter. Back then I skied mostly nights, and I bought a season pass in August. I used ski 3 nights a week minimum. Then I became a ski instructor, and skied for free about the same amount of time. I kept skiing the...

Re: When do people find time to ski??

In college + 3 years after, (Bozeman Montana) I skied like crazy. Then I went into the Navy (no good skiing on aircraft carriers, as it turns out, but the flying! Holy shit, it's good!) and only got in 5 or 6 days a year, if I was lucky and always thought it was worth it. So I can definitely empath...

What constitutes a day on the hill? I ski on weekends and after work (either near the house or ski up by headlamp at a local resort).
If it's a day of skiing to you, it's a day of skiing.

Re: Switch to tech bindings, and if so, what boot?

Is the Scarpa F3 the same boot as the old Scarpa Tx NTN? I haven't looked at that stuff in a while, but I had the Tx (3 buckle and tech fittings front and back) and thought it was a great boot. Very capable and similar in flex and stiffness to my T2 Ecos at the time. You could switch from Hammerhead...

>>Are you older than 67? mentally or physically? :lol: this body is like a high-mileage vehicle. Mentally I"m about 14 years old....physically - feeling about 95-96 :D Well, I'm glad your stomach is younger now! I'm also glad your girlfriend was strong enough to help. How did your wife react?

Here's a chance for you to learn from your elders! :lol: :lol: Are you older than 67? I decided to get an upper endoscopy every time I get a colonoscopy....just had the process done....it's like being on a rotisserie! All is well, thankfully, but I'd recommend both, once you get past about 60 or ha...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Thank you for this. Nice to see some dust at least on top of what little base we have here in New England. Nothing in the middle of New Hampshire. Some great pics on this thread! Woot Snowbird! Alaska! Hell yeah! It’s not much but it’s ours. “Builds character.” My character is all built out.....but...

Sometimes you have to share the goods... but I am not sure those guys thought the same when they had fun with their snowmobiles... not complaining... just sharing my sadness :(
Was this picture taken in the southern hemisphere?
