    What you are describing is the original Moment Bibby. Haven't skied the new version (Wildcat), but I suspect that the weight reductions have made it less comparable to the Black Ops. A used 190...

    I think somewhere around $125 / day is the most I've ever paid for lift served skiing. I don't remember where that was - maybe Whistler? But that's about my limit. And that's what I'd pay for a...

    Currently I pay around $12 / day at the home hill. Season pass is $675ish.

    I'd be fine with paying a bit more for the same skiing experience. I'd also be fine with paying a good bit more (say,...

    Technically the shipping companies don't like shipping pressurized things, but realistically it doesn't really matter one way or the other. It's easier to remove a depressurized shock on some bikes.
