    Here's one that's the opposite of a gaper. A guy, probably mid-late 70's walks past me with some well worn Descente gear and Spyder gloves from the early 90's and a nice pair of Stockl GS skis. I overheard him say that 1/2 of skiing is looking cool. haha.
    Turns out he was parked next to me and had been skiing with his daughter and granddaughter. At end of the day he was smoking a ciggy while his daughter took his boots off for him.

    I wonder how many FT and Dalbello cab boots are sold to us 70-80 somethings. I don't want to be the guy who came into Olympic Boot Works to have his boots removed. Unfortunately my boots will probably outlive me so I might have to wait until my next reincarnation to switch to cabs.

    A guy asks me, as I’m headed to a sidecountry spot, Do they dynamite it up there?
    I say Dynamite?..for avy control?
    Yeah he says.
    I said no…they don’t do that here in Vermont.

    Glad he was thinking anout avy stuff but he was perhaps a touch optimistic.

    Where’s is this gaperfest?

    I’d shit my pants, if I had to deal with 10% of that crowd.

    I’m guessing it was a bunch of heavy sticky spring snow. Maybe a good commercial for wax.

    I’ve just decided to be a middle aged somewhat depressed somewhat anxious fucktard until the end.

    saw a guy at Arapahoe on Wednesday -

    'Why aren't You out there !(?) ! ' I Asked ;

    " I'm eighty-two, " began his reply,
    " I can still ski!, But I can't get up. (!) "


    FknA -

    I skied three runs before pulmonary edema shut me down.

    The young guns in the parking lot were making a point of looking -

    " fuckin' old. " was all I said ;

    " Walk downhill ! " came his response -

    we were on-skis, in jeans ?

    no shit. Glory days, baby. !


    My time is coming to the end.
    it's been Fun.

    Thank you, magg.s !

    ' nostalgia meister'..
    I can live with that - Thanks! Dj.

    I fall over unpredictably, not when I'm turning or on steeper runs, but on innocuous traverses. Combination of poor balance/failing inner ear/occasional vertigo and no feeling in my feet due to spinal stenosis. And when I do I have to take off my skis to get up, mainly due to fucked up shoulders. Life will turn us all into gapers. Death is the only cure.

    When we're old, and still skiing, pretty much anything we do is cool. Because we're still skiing.That in itself is cool.Let 'em call us gapers if they want - they're wrong.

    "Is this the way to the top?"

    Asked of me just below Panorama point on Mt Rainier while i was skinning up to the Muir snowfield by a profusely sweating younger, overweight gentleman from SW asia dressed in sneakers, jogger sweats, and a North Face puffy jacket. no backpack, but holding a 16oz bottle of water. For reference this is about 1 mile and 1000' from the parking lot, with another ~7 miles and ~8000' to go to the summit (nevermind the alpine climbing/mountaineering aspect that would be involved).


    I was confused and answered "top of what"? When he responded "Mt Rainier" i just responded "yes" and kept slogging up.
