    Definitely looking in to the yeti and have considered the crossover skis like a vantage 86 C but they are all 1600g+ and usually pretty boring. BMT 90 remains a possibility in that weight range.

    Squaw will also be mostly closed on Sunday with the high winds. They'll probably keep KT and Red Dog running, -and they can definitely entertain- but you might not feel like it was worth $90. If...

    Went to Castle cirque and thought it was pretty lame. Cold, windy, windboard to ice to occasional stashes. I bailed after a half a run. Some boarders were riding lines to skier's left of me and they...

    Thanks for the tip. I've checked all my deal stashes and hadn't heard about that one. Didn't see any on their site but I bet for that price they only have size 22.
