    Hmm. This is one of my go to moves. If I’m not towards the front of the KT line I will go take a lap or two on Red Dog, then head over to KT without much wait. Works out pretty nicely and you get a lot more fresh untracked.

    Nothing wrong with going to RD, done it many times myself. But the two guys arguing about it for an hour . . . . Some people in front of us were debating bailing for RD but thought they were too far from the back of the line. We assured them everyone would be happy to help them leave.

    People are getting too jaded. Only the first few Fingers airs got any reaction from the crowd, and of those only the biggest. Some guy aired out the pinnacle to the right of KT chair near the top. Had to be 100 ft. He blew up on the landing. We yelled at him to clear the landing zone.

    In Sapporo, talking to a somewhat snooty French guy, asked where we were from. We said Northern California. We asked the same. He said, "I come from a place called Mammoth Lakes, you probably haven't heard of it."

    1. No one who's actually from Mammoth would ever say "Mammoth Lakes."
    2. We already told him we were from Nor Cal.
    3. I was wearing a Mammoth t-shirt.

    Maybe he was fucking with you? The French can have a weird sense of humor.
    No longer stuck.

    No he definitely was not. Whole group agreed. I was wearing a jacket so the Mammoth shirt may not have been that obvious. He was just a bit of a prick.

    The snootiness comes in degrees.

    One of my best friends is from Alsace. He usually doesn't make those of thin skin cry when things aren't to his liking.

    His girlfriend's step-father is from Bordeaux. Stepdaddy screamed at his wife in front of all of us at Thanksgiving dinner when she didn't cut the pumpkin roll on a bias.

    Last year a brother was physically assualted by a family friend for "disrespecting" a glass of wine.

    I never turn down their invitation to dinner.

    I regularly see people walking around town/ on the bus in ski boots after talking public transport back from the mountain. I guess they cant figure it out to put shoes/ sliders in the backpack?

    We are an hourish on a train away from the closet lifts.

    This just made me smile . . . after an 11 inch storm last night, guy behind me on the way to lift says to his friend, "Think we'll need longer poles!"

    Sitting in the base lodge this morning, overheard a couple having a conversation about how dangerous it was to have all these bags under tables etc. Guy says if he ran this place, everyone would be required to keep their bags in lockers downstairs. Wife agreed and added that it spooked her to which he agreed. He then said he might go speak with management because its really a homeland security concern, to which she agreed.

    Yup, ISIS has a big list of strategic hits, and I'm sure the Hunter lodge is high on that one.

    Maybe he doesn't want to tour with his street boots in his pack. Maybe he just doesn't want dirty boots in with the other stuff in his pack. Maybe the boots don't fit in the pack. When I take the bus from Chamonix to Grand Montets I do it wearing my ski boots. I don't see the problem.

    My adjustable poles are at 125 for firm, 130 for soft, 135 for powder, 140 (max) for longer skates or hikes. Try it, you'll like it.

    I don't agree with putting the bags in lockers downstairs--they're still a homeland security concern. People shouldn't be allowed to bring boot bags to the lodge, or alternatively, all bags should be searched. Any bags left unattended should be taken by patrol to the top of a loaded chute and detonated--kill two birds with one stone. (Actually, bags in the lodge are a PITA--piled on tables, chairs, under tables to the point where there's nowhere for people to eat lunch.)

    Funny that the two most intensive security checks I've been through were for a flight into Jackson Hole from SLC (before 9/11--back in the 80's I think) and from Cordova to Seattle.

    I count 1 gaper quote and 2 gaper posts.

    I rode the lift with a lady that said she was originally from Mammoth Lakes this weekend. She also told me they would get 7' of snow overnight. The only thing I could think of to politely respond with was "wow, that's a lot of snow"
