    I learned to ski at Park West (The Canyons) in 1988 I still remember the first day of skiing I was 12 and hated it but realy wanted to ski all my frineds could ski and I could not. Who would have thought 22 years later Im the only one of my friends from those days who skis. I still have found memories of the Ski Program at my Jr I got to do it for the rest of Jr High. I will say there was a gap in my skiing from 1991 to 93 I skied once and I realy learned to ski at Solitude in 1998, thanks to a friend who was a transplant from Greenbay.
    If ski companies didn't make new skis every year I wouldn't have to get new skis every year.

    First day skiing was at Park West also, now The Canyons. I think I was 2 and could barely walk. Growing up w/ ski bum parents wasn't easy on the grades - every powder day they pulled me out of school. I've got no complaints

    Being stoked is a state of mind. How do you achieve it?

    why do I see this happening to my kids.

    Didn't Drumlin's operate a T-bar up there for a while? There are so many NELSAPPed (officially and unofficially, most haven't hit NELSAP's radar yet) ski areas in the greater Syracuse area it's unreal. A few right in town. I had heard that SU even ran a ski area up near Skytop for a while. Lot's of possibilities all over

    So sick, even possible avie damger!
    I'm assuming your talking about on the golf course, thats about the only golf course skiing I'll lend any credence to, that is one steep fucking hill. My folks have told me stories of sledding there as kids (pretty sure my old man skied that on long wooden boards back in the 50s too) , sounded sick. Damn lawyers ruin everything.

    Apulia road or on 91? I've been eyeing the gas pipeline out by Otisco lake. Super steep and should catch enough snow for some serious fun. Easy 1/4 mile hike through county land to the top, trails lead right to it. haven't figured out the bottom yet. Looks like trespassing through some redneck's yard would be required. Maybe a case of PBR in advance would prevent getting shot at.

    Cut my teeth at:

    Swiss Valley, MI
    Timber Ridge, MI
    The Pines, IN
    Ski Valley, IN
    Ski World, IN

    Now I'm all growns up and taught my son to ski at Swiss Valley when he was 3. We ski there 30+ days a year as a family, I'm there more often and get somewhere around 45 days.

    It seems like a world away from all of my Utah riding - because it is.

    I learned to ski at Winterplace, West Virginia. I was wearing gray acid wash jeans and trying to hook with a much older chick. I ripped down a blue without falling on my 1st try, I ate the orange fence on the second try.

    A few years later I just decided that I needed to ride a snowboard. My brother and I learned at Snowshoe, WV. Not long after I was packing up and moving to Utah.


    Winterplace blows, and gets huge crowds, avoid the place. Snowshoe is actually a decent mountain that gets a fair amount of snow. If you live in the South, go to Snowshoe or get on a plane.

    My wife learned at Snowbird, UT - I'll never forgive her for that.

    My first day was at Mt. Pilchuck which closed up shop 4 years later. It was dumping. After a couple hours on a rope tow, I migrated to the chairlift and was making pseudo parallel turns on 130 cm rental skis (wearing $2 leather lace up boots from Goodwill) in cut powder. Next day was at Snoqualmie. I even caught air.

    We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.
