    Hopefully her lawyer isn't reading TGR, even if most of my skis have heel pieces.

    The form from the state asks about items valued over $500; I've got a question in to my lawyer to verify, but I...

    Anyone got a good way to get a realistic fair-market value on skis? STBX estimated my ski gear collection at about twice what I'm guessing. The older stuff isn't that hard to value (search eBay,...

    The more important question might be why the heck anyone is suggesting a 1 degree bevel (or an 89 or 91, however you want to measure it). With the one-degree base bevel I'd expect on any non-race...

    The downside of having another vehicle is that you can then end up with two inoperable vehicles in the garage instead of one.

    I wish they'd run a masters DH. No idea if they'd get enough takers to make it worthwhile (and I'd have a hell of a time getting time off to do it), but it would be a lot of fun.

    It may be man-made, but Sunday River has been making tons of snow recently and should be able to get a lot more terrain open in the near future.
