Anybody get up on Rose today?? If so, what's the word?
If its not total velcro (which I have a feeling it is), I'm going to head up for some happy hour turns.

Sunday indeed! TMRF will be there too. I'll probably be an ameoba floating amongst the different mag/non-mag crews. I'm guessing band on the deck for apres so that will be fun!

^^Upper lot yo!!

Chutes were great today! should be good this weekend...if they do a passholder - friend deal let me know and ill meet you. Either way let's hook up...

It took 2 skis to replace my axioms (coaxs & sickles) but only because I'm getting lazy with age.
My last surviving pair is pretty soft (which I like) and mounted at +1 (much better than the...

Rose was ridiculous today!!! Best day of the year!!
01-11-2013, 07:26 PM
Hoping tomorrow is smoothish goodness. I'll be at Rose...anyone else?? Raccoon? Thudder??

Dooky, the firestone at the meadowwood mall always treats me great. I'll be there getting my winterforces (which have a much better snow tread vs blizzaks imho...the only 2 tires I could find in my...
Out of curiosity, what boot where you skiing? I'm convinced that I would not have ruptured it if I had been in a stiffer traditional boot. My Krypton Pro tongues kinked and folded right in half when...
Welcome to the club! As strange as it sounds (because you hurt it skiing), skiing is about the easiest sport to do when you're back because of the support you have in the boot. I skied at 3.5 months...
I'm pretty sure I remember you douchebags bopping around acting like you owned the joint from a highschool day trip. IIRC, we nicknamed you guys 'The Super-Jocks' :)
02-17-2011, 05:57 PM
Yup...took a long lunch and lucked out with perfect timing for the chutes.
12-21-2010, 04:42 PM
The chutes were titties today! Not the usual rabid crowd either...
12-06-2010, 02:15 PM
Hey Gageyk, I was 2 chairs behind you...far left side in the yellow pants. Say hi next time!! :) I really wish I could have stuck around for the chutes today...
Yeah, I'm with Frozen on this one..I know buzzkill!! The kid is rolling with the abuse ok...
OP Jay kicks ass! And you're in college so you want to party right? There are ways to do that.
No doubt! Some days I miss that place!
I'm just catching this thread...amazing pics. I can't even imagine.
So Brewski, are you home yet? Come out to tahoe this winter & you'll get a hero's...

Nice to see you for our annual once-a-year meeting Guermo! Till next year...
Hard to tell but I'd say Rose got somewhere between 10" and 14". I didn't hit bottom once...RaccoonFace hit every rock...
You know...if you can get a room in Kirkwood Fri night you could:
- Take 88 to the Wood Fri after your conference (and not have to deal with the Sat morning parking shitshow)
- Walk to the lifts...
1) Health Insurance is just moving HUGE amounts of money around with computers, you can't compare the profit % to other industries. A fraction of a percent is an ungodly amount of money. That said,...
I know you're a troll but to educate the other fools: The red stuff is intentionally misleading (pretty much a lie with how it was discussed) and has nothing to do with Romney care or HCR. Those...
The mandate is to (in order of importance - educated guesses):
1) Cover as many of the $50 million+ uninsured as possible
2) To not cause costs for the insured to blow through the roof after...
Are you really this dense?
Try getting insurance after your current individual insurer drops you when your plan year is up because you have an unexpected health issue - or maybe your employer...
Let's not get crazy :) (it's probably a wash)
The house bill was much more difficult on insurers and more painful for employers to not cover their employees. I'm guessing the insurance lobby and...
Not when there is continuous coverage - hence the need for the mandate. Use your melon man ;)
Just because more than half of us aren't capable of understanding it, much less have the time to break it down, doesn't mean it's bad or that it should be 'simpled down'...or that anyone was called a...
Rubicon, you seem very hung up on sound bites and slanted opinion articles. Think about the issue.
The government is subsidising premium & providing tax breaks to businesses to insure a huge...
Not sure about flex but on paper these look almost identicle to the Elan Olympus ('11 w/ rocker) and 1010 ('10 no rocker).

I'm planning on day tripping it Saturday. Kirkwood on sunday...
MTT, do you have a 191 Wrenegade I can demo? :smile:
06-24-2010, 02:09 PM
I am a little confused on this. Doesn't your wife's employer deduct the extra premium for dependents out of her pay with PRE-TAX dollars? in which case there should be nothing to deduct.
Bob Ross does skiing!
"Here's a happy little bro brah!"
(j/k...I like it ;))
Mammy was fun...nice meeting you C! The suncups were a little brutal in the flats below 23 and on Climax...but all in all it was pretty fun skiing and temps were PERFECT!
I'll probably hit it up...
06-07-2010, 02:49 PM
^^ Oh yeah. I left out the possiblility of your medical load changing. In CA group insurance your load can be +/- 10% from 'book' -- which is a 22.2% differential between lowest and highest.
06-07-2010, 02:41 PM
Not trying to be know-it-all, Spats, but I am 100% confident in that assessment.
1) Normal filed cost trend (a built in monthly or quarterly increase in rates that goes on...
06-04-2010, 04:40 PM
To clarify: Spats' premium isn't affected yet at all and the few changes being implemented later this year will be minimal.
October 1 changes to grandfathered plans:
- No lifetime max (minimal...

Whatever you do, do not listen to a broker try to tell you what this reform will do to costs.
I don't have time to give you the moving parts right now (I have a meeting in 2 minutes on this very...
06-04-2010, 01:01 PM
Spats, I guarantee you that HCR has zero to do with anything related to your premium at this point.
KC, PM me your insurance company and plan design. I'll see if I can find their COC/Exclusions and Limitations and see if you have any possibility of getting that thing covered. Anything they told you...
05-26-2010, 12:10 PM
Ok somebody help me out. The storm kind of slowed down, so what's the better call: tomorrow or fri for Mammoth?? What's your gut say?
04-30-2010, 04:47 PM
Any stability issues?
I'll be hitting the chutes early tomorrow w/ (so far) one friend...shuttling to the summit. We should be up there 7:30ish -- shoot me a PM if you want to join us...the more...

Might have been the best snow I've ever skied on Mt Rose yesterday evening...here's a really poor quality cell phone pic taken at 7:56PM yesterday (the blur is a skier and you should be able to get...
04-16-2010, 04:57 PM
The weather is looking $$...there will most certainly be BBQs, lot's of beer and spring corn...come on out. HUGE crew of dorky fun loving locals...should be a fun party!!
03-25-2010, 01:15 PM
Good stuff warthog.
I don't think it'll be too bad for a few reasons.
- Most of the uninsured are young and healthy
- Providers will have vastly reduced costs from the uninsured and should...
03-25-2010, 12:57 PM
Then we can't get rid of pre-existing conditions exclusions and force guaranteed issue. Period. It has to be there for this all to work.
Actually it was medicare that designed the entire claim coding structure (which is amazing) and got the ball rolling on electronic claims processing - all the private insurers got to piggyback that...
03-24-2010, 04:45 PM
All in good time dude. I wish I had the free time to read and digest that sucker...but have you seen how long it is? For now you'll have to be content with me periodically correcting bogus info...

No man, there is an individual mandate penalty.
It is $750 for any month one goes without coverage, capped at 3x this per year ($2250). This is phased in and will be $95 in 2014, $350 in 2015...
Again, what about this health insurance reform is going to change any of this?
fwiw - there are variations in treatment patterns for everything. You can pick this cancer or that cancer where the...
Most are not socialized medicine, they are socialized insurance...actually many aren't even that; they just have mandated coverage. Our's is not becoming socialized medicine nor is it even becoming...
Yeah, no alternatives were discussed? Do you actually believe the stuff you say? Do you understand anything about the house and senate bills? (that's rhetorical, I know you don't) They are VASTLY...
