    Those Sunski treeline glasses are great - I use them for touring and the side flaps that block glare on sunny spring days are really nice.
  4. THE OFFICIAL 20/21 TAHOE SKI & SNOWBOARD THREAD. PANDEMIC SCHMANDEMIC!

    Fucking lower jackpine re-route. That was bullshit. You ride a trail a few hundred times and they do a re-route right at a GD tree. Broken ribs. I’ve been fat ever since.

    Clearly China is now charging them 25 cents per lens instead of 15 cents.

    Some of the most ridiculous margins in the business.

    If I hear about you cheering for extended MTB conditions again I may have to write you a strongly worded letter.

    Have to admit it - PowDork was right. That's a ridiculous closure extending until the end of the year. I mean, it's not like they're going to be working on repairing dozer lines in December when...

    They have backup generators. At least for where it's crucial, anyway.

    How so? I mean... Mammoth and the adjacent backcountry is pretty world class. Quite a bit better?

    Right, but we’ve often referred to Olympic Valley for various reasons including the attempted incorporation so it’s the most realistic alternative to actually catch on.

    I've come to realize this is a backdoor way of everyone just calling it Olympic Valley, without fighting the IOC. It's worth noting the Squaw base area in the app and elsewhere is labeled as...

    Tell me you're out of touch in the ski world without telling me you're out of touch in the ski world. That was the most Lou Dawson thing ever.

    I agree - it just feels wrong not having a fresh issue on the table right now.

    But that's in Canuckistan. Man, I drove over Rogers pass during a storm and that is some crazy, sketchy shit. All time white knuckle drive.

    Clarification: it's not happening but the topic has been strongly considered of late after the road was closed due to skier/rider triggered slides, no?
  16. The only time they're going to close anything is...

    The only time they're going to close anything is if a slope is above an important roadway, like they do on Teton Pass now after too many idiotic incidents.

    Yeah the kid passes are steep, relatively speaking. I’ve had both SB and Ikon the last several years but all three kids have ikon passes (costs less but they also love Alpinisade Valley South).

    Bummer there's still only one venue in North America, but I get that it's difficult to arrange currently. I'm hoping to make it to the Kicking Horse event this year - would love to watch in person.

    Yes, that's what I was referring to. Still love Palisade Meadows on weekdays, though.
  20. If only there was some other resort in the area...

    If only there was some other resort in the area with better terrain than Mt. Rose and none of the crowds of Squawlpine. :fmicon:

    Err... I mean Palisades Tahoe / Alpine Meadows. Palpine?

    The best part of the renaming of the resort are all of the dipshits on social media commenting stuff like "GO WOKE GO BROKE!"

    Riiiight. Last time I checked, Target is still in business after that...

    It was just a joke relating to early morning flights out of that airport and not being happy about it. But it got a lot better once it was revealed what a huge douchebag that guy is. I encountered...

    I figured the eagle in the logo was a nod to the Eagle's Nest aka McConkey's on KT. I don't think the logo is all that bad, just the name is a little boring for a place that is very much the...

    It's up on the sign in front of Olympic Valley road today and all over their social media, so yes.

    And yes, the IOC is a huge stickler about using the Olympic brand.
  25. Olympic Valley clearly wasn't an option due to...

    Olympic Valley clearly wasn't an option due to trademark issues... but I'm wondering how much they paid some firm to come up with Palisades? Pretty vanilla. Without a catchy new name, everyone is...

    Palisades Tahoe is kind of a lame resort name IMO. That's the best they could come up with?

    Clearly a long time listener, first time alias-poster. Pretty sure I know who this is and I approve.

    Thanks for the food recommendations OP, I'm about to drive up to Seattle later this month. ...

    Wow, that's pretty cool that they're being so pro-active.

    Yeah, I think we discussed it in this thread a few years ago. I've never seen anything quite like it before (at least not in CA), where the same city and mailing addresses are literally split...

    Truckee is mostly in Nevada County but a good portion goes across the county line into Placer, including all of Northstar.

    As for defensible space, I know they've been doing a ton of work in...

    Damn, y'all need to chill. Court, yeah, the closures are a bit much to be honest but that's more the fault of people being fucking idiots and that sucks for us non-morons. Having said that, there's...

    Haha, 100%

    First kid trips and you're all over it. Third kid falls off like a 5 foot deck while at a party and you just take another sip of beer, "Oh, he's fine. Bit of a drama queen."

    Speaking from experience... Annadel Park in Kenwood / Santa Rosa got absolutely nuked in Oct 2017 and the trails were okay after we cleared all of the debris and fallen trees. We didn't allow...

    I mean you're not wrong but... we were together 23 years, had 3 kids... so it was fine for a decent stretch. So no regrets. Okay, maybe a few regrets, whatever. At least she didn't cheat on me...

    There were a number of girls like that in my high school. In particular in my history class it was a desks-in-a-circle setup so you could see above and below the tables and they'd always sit in the...

    Seriously. Some of you need to be thankful and STFU. How ridiculous.

    Yeah, CalFire wants to ruin the local economy on the north shore. That's definitely it. :rolleyes:

    I've been through three fires in the last 4-5 years. Looting happened at all of them. It's not an important story until the dust settles - there are far more important things to report on. ...

    Yeah, I mean, it's one thing for a guy to turn his head at a short skirt and some tan legs as a sort of innate reaction, but once you realize it's some girl under 18 get ahold of yourself. I have...

    Looks like the fire is beginning to turn towards SLT on the most recent fire maps. Not good.

    Edit: yeah, i saw Zeke's vid. Read posts below.

    Because Big Chief, Deer Creek and some other trails on the other side of Sawtooth (i.e. Happy Face) are pretty fun? Not excusing violating the closure, however.

    ^^ So much depends on the steepness as well as the soil composition. For example, after 2017 in Sonoma we really didn't have any flooding issues related to the burnt terrain, but you may remember...

    Yeah but it will likely only be open to certain countries and the US will not be one of them, or probably shouldn't. Thanks to a bunch of dipshit anti-vaxxers.
