    I know I should see an ortho but I know what they're going to say...stop skiing. I know my body parts pretty well and pretty sure this is a sprain that I haven't allowed to heal properly. If not, I...

    On the chemical heat packs...my boots have a really low instep. Love them because my feet don't move but I have zero room for chemical toe warmers. Have a bunch for inside my mittens.

    Thanks all. K, a couple of others haver also recommended the copper sleeve. Will go on a search mission tomorrow. Also trying to find cheap heated socks since it will likely be below zero on MTW for...
  8. Cheap Solutions for Toasty Toes?

    I don't normally get cold feet but I'm doing an AIARE1 course on Mount Washington (NH) this weekend and want to be prepared in case it gets colder than the predicted temps (which are near 0*).

    Sooo.....

    I'm going to take about a week off and try to heal this knee. After taking 2-3 days off, it feels pretty good but skiing on it just makes it hurt again. Yesterday was totally worth it...

    Wow, we had a completely different experience at Magic today. No wind to speak of by the time the lifts spun at 9. We got a tip that patrol was getting ready to drop the rope to the west side so...

    So you're saying the state should have installed all kinds of cables and anchors in the rock? I'd rather let nature take its course because in the end, nature will always win.

    Oops, guess I was trespassing last time I skied the 19th (2019) but didn't see any signs...as a free to wander state, I thought if the property owner fails to post no trespassing signs every 50 feet,...

    Interestingly, I've seen it a lot this year. It stuck with me because I really hadn't seen it a lot previously. I think every lift at Stratton has a sign that says this. And I rarely skied at...

    Version from Waiting for Columbus en fuego. WfC is the greatest live album ever. In my opinion. Which doesn't really mean shit.

    If you're asking if there's video of them doing it...of course not. Did it happen? All the research I have done says yes.

    Fair points all. Different perspectives.

    BTW, they did not buy that lift from Stratton so the decision to take it without a plan to install it still seems like the right one. Another fact is...

    As long as all the nay-sayers don't show up on the next powder day, all will be right with the world.
