TR (trip report's) kick ass, but follow a few simple do's and don'ts when posting them:
Do use details; how much vertical, how much snow (cm or inches, but feet is better), pictures help a ton, how was the skiing and the snow (its fine to say how much it kicked ass), be stoked if it was good, if you can write express it in your best version, otherwise keep it sweet and to the point. Scenics are nice, but try to get as much skiing in your pics as possible, we love that shit. Good examples of TR's can be found by: Trackhead, iskibc, altapowderdaze, shera and many others.
Don't: tell us how much you kick ass, we don't care because we know how to kick ass too, don't take copious amounts of self portraits and post them, unless they are action shots or if you are hot chick, bragging and boasting won't float either. If it was a mediocere day for you, might want to think about not posting a TR (we all have mediocre days), you don't have to post TR's all the time, unless they are good all the time.
If your TR is NSR, it better be good and something of interest. Example: Backstage at a Pearl Jam show, epic climbing or hiking trip, your day at the Pornstar awards.
Learn how to post pics. If you can host them somewhere else besides here, you would save Owens some server space. Red 'x' is not hot right now. Learn how to do attatchments as well, can be tricky.
All this, thrown in with some creativity, provides much appriciated stoke.More fucked up than a cricket in a hubcap

Just the thread I was looking for. So I guess I better get to it with the naked pictures. Do they have to be naked or will sexy lingerie suffice?

Lingerie will work for your first step, grasshoppah.

Selling my soul
I could post my latest anonymous ebay sales picture, in which I sold my "too large" snow jacket quickly and easily ...but then I may lose the respect of my fellow cool chick riders.....
Dare I, Yogachik? Obviously, I'm not afraid of the camera

Newbie status pains me almost as bad as a frostbitten ballsack...
Those that know me from other forums...STFU. Those that could not give a shit about me--99.9% of the free world and 100% of the rest--Be kind...
Fuck-it. Be mean. I am into Cybermasochism.

Happy to oblige.
The rest of you know-nothing newbie punks can learn something from Gramps, who posted more stoke in his first post than I have in my "career".
But I'm more sarcastic than him, so it works out.
