Yes, it's Vector time! Downhills are mostly filled in. Should be better by next week. How's the snow holding out down there? It seems like it's been warm and rainy down there this season.

I hit a rock with my knee, it probably only had 2" of cover and we were playing last one to the bottom. I saw stars, but I hit it flat to flat. It hurt, but skied all day. No damage, but that dent in my knee cap is still there.
The bottoms of my Rossi bc 65's look like they got into a knife fight and lost. Totally gouged and scratched from early season 'skiing' on rock, sticks, and sometimes snow. I caught a large protruding rock at high speed and bit it face first with bruising and contusions resulting. I am very grateful for the deep snow we've gotten the last couple of weeks.

You're a poet and don't know it fishy!
