It was her saying " you know what, all this powder sucks, why don't you just stay out and we'll hook up later. It's always better after a few days anyways".

    It must be great to have a girlfriend or wife that gives you permission to go out.
    Not sure if that was sarcasm...but on the odd chance it wasn't, if you are looking for "permission" from your woman to do "whatever"...you're doing it wrong.

    And one more little comment...

    I love skiing. And at the height of my obsession, I did some crazy things to get my fix. But any man, who would risk missing his own child's birth because he was out skiing on or near the due date, is a total shitstain.

    Reminds me of something my wife said the other day. After going down in 8" of HEAVY fresh (a rarity round here), she points her skis directly downhill and starts to stand up. When I stop her she replies "i don't know, I never fall anymore". (she doesn't)

    An hour later, she ate shit in the parking lot

    She does... It took her a year or two to finally understand. She's having a harder time understanding why one would need several different skis. We'll make progress, especially the more she gets into skiing.

    I've learned from my father how to walk the gear-women tight rope. For all you dads out their, this is a VERY important lesson

    Shove it up yer ass DickJerkin

    Venting about stupid shit here anonymously and facetiously keeps many of us happily connected to our ladies.

    Go tweet pictures of your cock to a 14 year old somewhere...

    Please expand upon this. My current strategy is to ask for forgiveness, not permission. which I don't think is sustainable long term.

    WHY IS YOUR WHITE COCK HALF THE SIZE OF JONG SLAUGHTERS?
    Hey d-bag - here's something for you to think about: maybe (just maybe) not everybody here has their little panties in a wad 24/7 and flies into a rage whenever somebody disagrees with them. Maybe these same mags don't take this place uber-seriously. Maybe this even includes the vast majority of the people who post here as opposed to you and like 20 other thin-skinned douchebags. Just something to think about. -JER

    There are several strategies, and I can say that I haven't come close to mastering them. I mostly do what you do. Watching pops has given me some insight, however. He's a space cadet scientist, so if he can do it, most guys can.

    First off, don't be a lazy ass. If you work hard, and spend your time at home being helpful instead of smoking weed and watching football, you definitely get some points.

    Assuming she contributes (ie works hard, makes money, isn't your trophy wife), don't complain when she buys stupid shit. I had a heart attack when my mother purchased drapes, yes drapes, that didn't even close, yet cost as much as a mountain bike. I asked my dad what the hell was going on, and he said "well, your mother works hard. She doesn't ask for much and these drapes are something she wants". Needless to say, a few months later, his new surf ski showed up on a truck from Miami.

    Try to include her. This doesn't always work, and there's a running joke between my mom and my girlfriend about how they get gear for gifts. However, I definitely think it helps you out and if it works out, you get to spend time together doing fun stuff. Yeah, I end up skiing blues with her and riding switch the whole time cuz it isn't the most exciting terrain, or doing wheelies and bunny hopping everything in sight as we cruise mellow single track. But it's awesome to get out with her and it sure beats going to some lame social event or something.

    Which beings me to, obviously you might have to go to some lame social events to get some powder coupons.

    Make sure you point out the lazy douchebags that her friends date who mostly ditch their gfs for drinking and football and whatnot. It makes you look good. She won't tell you, but she actually likes that you're into something cool. She might complain about your "obsessions", but it's only because women have to complain about something.

    Sometimes you have to ask forgiveness and not permission. It happens a lot. There's no winning. "You don't have any other nice shirts?!" Why the fuck would I have more nice shirts when I barely need to wear the ones I have? A few nice shirts is a new pair of skis off gear swap. "I swear, have you owned those jeans since high school?!" Yes, and they still work fine.

    You can't have your cake and eat it too. That's the biggest lesson. If you want to ski, hang out with your bros, be lazy and spend all your cash on gear, you might be out of luck. But if you can sacrifice some bullshit, you should easily be able to keep your habits up. Remember, you could be an alcoholic fatass, and that might happen if you can't ski

    This ain't new information, but there's my .02

    I hope we're in the donut hole.
    No dear, we want to be the donut, not the hole.
    Ohhh, be the donut, not the hole, be the donut, not the hole, be the donut not the hole.

    "I still liked your Merlin better than the Specialized"

    "I was just going to hang out and play with the ratties today. You probably want to go skiing/biking anyway, right?"

    "I picked you up some IPA from the liquor store while I was out, but now I see you already have some. Oops!"

    "Love you, be careful."

    I took this young lady I am dating skiing last year. I have written about her before. I taught her to ski but other than the occasional trip with me, hasn't really embraced it. Anyway, lucked into a hudge powder day. About 30' into her first run, says she is done and will hit the lodge.

    Ooookayyyy...

    6 hours later I park the skis and find her surrounded by guys who are nodding their heads appreciatively as she's telling them that the mountain should keep the groomers running when it snows to make it easier on everyone.

    "You should go to NZ this summer."

    "Of course you should buy a new setup, the old one has like two whole seasons on it."
