Sun-cups and a fair amount of turns were had on my last day of skiing this year.....Thinking the corn wasn't as good as it used to be....Is there something about snow making that can affect late corn?....Don't know and probably won't find out...oh well!....Hope to get sweet arcs next year and in the mean time.....hope all have a good summer....TM

Maybe too much rain in that corn?? May 11 is pretty good - there's still the Memorial Day slackfest...only 2 weeks away

"C" that could be but I'd rather blame it on Vail those money sucking dorks from way out West....Also the only time we went to the Slack fest and we skrewed that up too.....Parked ( down below slack fest and had a blast skiing something called...er...Rox would know......).....But we won't rule anything out....so if there is a great sunny day we might try to find it again!!!!!!!!

Yeah, you could probably jab at a woolly mammoth with those pole and win. I love the picture, the knickers and those high ankle leathers. Have a nice summer guys!
I live for the Telemark arc....The feeeeeeel.....I ski miles to get to a place where there is guaranteed snow to do the deal....TM

Forgive me if I am wrong but Is it Nordic rocker on those tips? Was not it suppose to be a recent progress? Just wondering...

She makes it look good! people were classy in the early 1900's.

A foot+ of snow is headed for the mountains - slackfest could be epic this year - no high temps in the foreceast, I might have to fight the traffic & go. Tman you guys must have skied something in the Great Gulf, east snowfield are at the summit, there is a small parking lot just below the main summit ones, driver's left, the huge bowl is just below the smaller parking lot, everything's going to be filled in this year.
