    Nope, popped my cherry with this one.

    ^ sorry to hear about your injury. Heal as quickly as us old folk can.

    I ended my season yesterday with a fall on the deck at Magic...dislocated shoulder.

    Can't answer your question without pics to assess what "great shape" means to you.

    I tried to sell a pair of 27.5 F1s (not LT) that were pretty minty for $275 and didn't get a single nibble. YMMV.

    Maybe not pow but today was one of the best I've had in a long while at Magic. Everything was skiable.

    I'm number 2 I guess. The last 3 buyers we've had (we move a fair bit) came to the Open Houses. 2 of the 3 came back after the Agent left to talk to us one-on-one. As always, YMMV.

    I would seriously think about getting at least a Base+ pass. Easy math: Base+ is $220 more than the Base. 1 day of skiing at Jackson = $210-ish. That gives you 4 more for $10.

    ^If the storm pans out, it's going to be sketchy. Drive safe.

    3" of fluff overnight at Magic and you would think it was a full-on powder day. Another sellout day. Makes Jeff with a G happy (skied a few runs with him and his son).
