PW7 & HA some of the best shots (photos and face) I've ever seen from there - great work!
After graduating high school in New England I moved to Colorado to ski "real" mountains. I found a job and great place to live a couple of blocks from the lifts. I had good fiends to ski with and I...

Thanks - think upgrading this frame over time, on the cheap, is the right answer for me.
I'm 5'10" 160lbs so dropping weight, while possible, isn't easy or fun.
More riding is also possible but...

Thanks - this is what I'm looking for. Internet search led me to a company called Neuvation which has a nice looking set of light wheels for $250. While Neuvations get mixed reviews it's probably...

Thanks but trust me - even though I've been riding for 7 years - I'm a dope when it comes to this sport. I've skied all my life and know what will get me bang for the $$. Cycling on the other hand......

They used to run a downhill for kids - they still do that?
I remember small jumps being setup and other stuff that made...

So I blow my knee in 2005. I have a buddy, a mag in Whistler who did the same dumb thing in 2004. He tells me about two places to get info online; some knee board I don't remember and TGR. I went to...
My 3 year (operation) anniversary is May 29.
I went allo and 2nd guessed that for a long time. I now think that choice was fine and think an autograft would have been fine too.

I blew my knee in Mammy on April 1st 2005 in West (Ebbens) Bowl. I blew the ACL, MCL, crushed the LCLs, shredded about 50% of the meniscus and crushed the tibia crown. 1st serious injury in 40 years...
nice tr hutash - way to respresent.
i've been wondering about snow conditions up there - should be creamy at some point this month.
I'm probably too much of a JONG to answer this thread.
That said - my advice:
get a 12 oz glass
fill with ice and tequilla
drink quickly while reading the steep skiing thread on this forum...
02-25-2008, 10:09 PM

I'm 50 this year with a similar background and my daily ski is a 188 Volkl G4. Based on what I've read I'm leaning towards the Bro's.
Your dad has...

Just got home from a few days of storm skiing at Mammoth.
After watching others it occurs to me that maybe theres a better way.
My current ski is a 188 Volkl G4.
I'm 5'11'', 170lbs, and am an...
Just got back, 395-14 was an easy drive today. Yesterday's storm was a great base layer, something like 9-1. Had a nephew with me who rides in Vermont. I was so happy to show him a Sierra storm day....

Buzz - business travel will suck for a while. When I blew my ACL I had a bi-coastal job that required me to go LA - Boston at least once a month. That wasn't fun, your knee swells on a plane, getting...
I got allo - I'm 100% at 21 mos post-op.
