At Squatters, SLC:
Me: "Good weekend to pick to come out to Utah."
Gaper: "It's not bad, kinda cold."
Me: "Yeah, it's chillier than it's been. Where have you been skiing?"
Gaper: "Deer Valley. What's the local's picks around there?"
Me: "At DV? uhhhhh, I hear the trees stay pretty good. I never ski there."
Gaper: "Why not? Where do you ski?"
Me: "LCC....Alta and Snowbird"
Gaper: "I don't get it. Everybody always talks about Snowbird. I went there once, and it f*cking sucked. They don't groom sh*t."
Me: "Where are you from?"
Me: "Thanks for the beer."...so I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Not a quote, but more something I saw happen.
Standing in like to have my ticket scanned, I catch a gaper skiing up, ticket taker asks for his ticket, he pulls up his jacket to reveal..
His ticket (a day pass) is stuck on his wicket, except unlike the traditional way to do it, he has not removed the covering one the sticky stuff, he has simply speared it through the part where hte wicket comes open, and bent it around so it doesn't come off.
The scanner dude takes a look at it and says
"Uh oh your ticket isn't on right, let me help you there"
He proceeds to put it on the right way while the gaper stands there with an ill be danged face on.

I was waiting at the bottom of the lift for the rest of my group and talking to my friend that was bumping chairs. A guy comes to get on the chair and asks what kind of skis I have. I reply dynastar mythic rider. So he asks "What are those for?". I said "Uhh skiing"

Up at Snowmass today (god why the fuck did I ski today, so many spring break asses)...lady on the chair next to me asks if I have the phone number for the grooming department, she wanted to complain that ski had to ski across ruts in the snow made by other people. I told they take Sundays off from Snowmass and only groom at Buttermilk

I witnessed this conversation between two boarders and a patroller today.
2B's: Why is the gate closed on the Knob?
P: Because there was a slide there yesterday and we have get someone over there to check the stability.
2B's: Yeah. We started the slide! We dropped the little bowl and it broke right behind us!
P: You started it? Yesterday? How big was it?
2B's: About 6 inches deep, maybe 25 yards across. Not very big. We want to go back today and kick off another one.
2B's: We want to go back. You know, finish it up.
P: Are you serious? Do you guys even have beacons? A shovel?
2B's: Naw, man. Beacons are overrated.
P: Go ask at the patrol building, but I don't think it'll open today.Shut your eyes and think of somewhere. Somewhere cold and caked with snow.

heard under the chair lift by a teenage girl at pomerelle mtn resort, ID. There was a group of about 400 baptists youth there, 95% of which were obviously first timers. " If you point these straight down the hill, you go faster"

buddy clicks in his Trekkers to start a quick skin in to where our Avy course is training when one of the women in the group asks "Are those the new Duke bindings I've heard about?"__________________________________________________ _

This happened a few years ago--there's about a quarter mile line of cars waiting to turn into Alpine Meadows. Guy passes the whole line of cars on the wrong side of the road, forces his way into line right behind me. We turn into Alpine Meadows road, the road is solid ice. The guy passes me on a blind curve, gets into the lot about 30 seconds before me, gets out of his car and puts on a helmet. Safety first I guess.

"I've got a buddy who camps all the time"
"I've got a buddy who is an awesome rock climber."
Lots o buddies that do shit, but not him I guess.
Happy St. Patricks Day. Now go drink a beer.sigless.

I was on the peak chair at whistler yesterday and overheard a dad explaining the finer points of avalanche control to his son as we went over the bomb tram.
Kid: "Whats that dad?"
Dad: "Thats a bomb tram, they use it to place bombs in those rocks"
Kid: "How does it work?"
Dad: "Well the patroller wears a harness and hangs off the cable. He then wheels out over the rocks and he drops the bomb in. Then he wheels back quickly before it blows up".
Kid: "Wow!"Worshiping the Temple for Life - www.templebasin.co.nz

Alright, alright. I was the Gaper this weekend. First lap EVER in Granite Canyon (endless to mile long in waist deep pow all the way down, gimped with a knee brace from a torn MCL in Jan.) Boyfriend with a cracked shoulder in arm sling insists on carrying my skis on part of the never ending side step/traverse out. Tells me to turn around and look up, Amazing sun hitting a gorgeous peak. My reaction- "Is that the GRAND?" yuk yuk."I'm a child of mother nature, what do you expect?" Malibu

At KT a month or so ago,
Do those fat skis make you faster in the powder?
Ahhh, they are better in the powder.
No, do they make you faster?
