    Yup. Do not recommend.

    You can for sure 270 on and off a rail. It's been a pretty basic part of freestyle comps for a long time now. Like you can't be competitive not doing them.
    That said, no idea what the context of the original conversation was.
    No longer stuck.

    Benny's train of thought is 10 inches > strap on . That should tell you something.

    Obviously I know shit about freestyle and happy to keep it that way. I stand by my remarks about the 737 Max though.

    Riding up solo on the tbar in Breck, dude halfway up asks me if he can jump on real quick. Definitely doesn’t understand what’s going on.

    Sure. Liberal arts and sciences is important too. Tired of anti-intellectual bs I've heard my whole life. It's what devolved us into Donald fucking Trump ever being a viable candidate, let alone POTUS.

    I wouldn't know because I don't fucking care. But if people are skiing smaller east coast mountains and stoked on that, then good on them. And again: no grooming is a good thing more often than not, especially if you know how to ski.

    When i was a kid we regularly jumped on tbars half way up to beat the line and skip the flats. Grab the cord and ease back on to the bar. Easy.

    I think we're getting off the rails here.

    If there are empty t bars there shouldn't be a line (if people know how to ride them, which they don't).

    Not a gaper quote but . . . I did see someone skiing with goggles but with no lens in them (I bet they worked great!)

    270's on hips feel fucking awesome on skis and bikes.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Saw a guy hiking up (inbounds) with his skis mounted A-frame style on his pack, except they were upside down. Tips pointing down, and strapped together in a "V" behind his knees. Seemed awkward.

    Maybe he mounted the skis correctly but then put his pack on upside down.

    Best Gaper qoute of the weekend?

    At Mary Jane Sunday, two skiers on the chair with us above a bump run.

    Skier 1: “Man, they sure love their bumps here. I have no idea why.”
    Skier 2: “Well, remember, bumps are really good for snowboarders.”

    Great skis in their day, second pair I've seen this season. More power to people who can ski them decently--I would guess still a good bump ski. But 40 (?) Look Nevadas? I think those were off the indemnified list before there was an indemnified list. I guess if you never fall . . .

    Wikipedia says N57 first model with optional brakes but I have zero first hand knowledge. I never skied them, just admired people who did.
    Ahh the joys of safety straps and long thongs. (For you young whippersnappers out there, long thongs are not a kind of women's underwear.)
