    I was telling a guy on the lift about this. He had once had his skis split up and had one stolen. He found it in the parking lot along with someone else's stolen ski. The thief dumped them when he realized he's stolen 2 different skis.
    You know that might just be enough to make sure your skis aren't the ones stolen...
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Ha, I didn't notice him. He belongs to the snowboard on the left. I waited for him to walk away. Poor guy must have thought I was taking a picture of him. Guy, if you're reading--sorry.

    Best Gaper qoute of the weekend?

    When you work at a ski area you know that parking lot snow is suspect. I was just watching a big white trash family playing in the snow. One of the kids picked up a big hidden dog bomb and smeared it on his brotherís face. Hilarity ensued.

    That's generally the case with the skis that people split or lock up.

    Yeah I get that but I donít think a lot of old K2s with demo bindings are getting stolen

    Those look like nice carbon poles. Maybe it's the poles he was worrying about being stolen. Or maybe you're taking this a little too seriously.

    We are used to seeing plenty of visitors to the local XC center in full blown downhill clothing. Yesterday I saw multiple folks wearing goggles. One guy in particular was dressed like he was riding the lifts, including goggles AND a helmet! As we zipped past, he said something to the effect of 'this is much harder than it looks'.

    Was xc skiing at Green Lakes State Park yesterday and saw a woman wearing a helmet with an Alta sticker on it.

    I may have been the gaper this weekend. My son and I were at Beaver Creek, and were taking a break so we went to the newly named "Cookie Cabin". We were denied cookies and hot chocolate.... being told " This is a service only for people taking lessons".

    The woman behind the counter seemed nice enough, but not able to respond to my "Well.. I'm teaching him how to ski, give me a cookie and a hot chocolate"

    This might be the first place my son has been asked to leave.... not bad for a 7 year old.

    That's better than people wearing full blown XC clothes at the dowhill area. The helmet and goggles are funny, or maybe they just don't own fuzzy hats and needed something to keep their heads warm. : )

    You're not the gaper. Beaver Creek is the gaper. I mean--who can deny a 7 year old a cookie?

    not a quote but walking up the village noticed a rare sighting, the elusive monoskier...

    i quietly pointed it out to andrew without disturbing it, and he whispered "notice the exposed calves- this is a very special sighting"

    Should have gone to the "candy cabin" then. Rookie mistake, Dad.
