    EAST COAST ROLL CALL #8 14/15 A NEW HOPE

    With another winter season soon arriving and a happening party in a few days guess it is time to role with a new roll call to get the party started.
    Thanks for the votes to start the new and I'll admit it is hard to put the bike down. Tonights forecast seems to be reminiscent of ULLRfests' past with some snow on the hills.



    Get ready for the season,
    ESAW avy workshop 11/7 and 8

    Always a generous contributor Jonathan S would love for you to join him in an avy course, inhuman sufferfest or both

    Chauvinguides is another popular choice in the Presidentials.

    There is a unicornpicnic coming to a town near you , DO NOT MISS IT.
    Teton Gravity, our fine hosts, have a new film Almost-Ablaze. I kept hitting "load more" till I got bored, My guess it is showing in the East in November.
    Matchstick is bouncing around like a drunk whore, all over the map with their new film "Days of my Youth", memories.
    Sweetgrass is rolling around the area with a slick new film




    lionelhutz posted the first ski photo last year, who is dropping first this year



    A few of my favorites from the past year.
    My young Jedi friend, slaying it!



    Surface Whoring


    Spring skiing



    I had a great year past skiing with friends old and new and look forward to more of the same this season.

    Yes, nice start Vt-F, but this leaves unanswered the key question of whether dark_star was the first of us to ski for the 2014-15 season or the last of us to ski for the 2013-14 season?
    (Seems like probably the latter, since he was already most done with his most excellent TR before this thread started.)
    For those stuck in the Northeast, check out the NE Rando Race Series and my avalanche course. (For other avalanche course providers anywhere, feel free to use any of my "homework" assignments for your own courses too.)

    Just want to jump in here on page one with some universal stoke.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    You should really wait until he is 4-5 days old...


    Congrats to you and your new family, B. That's even more exciting than a new thread!

    Oh boy, oh boy! Can't wait for the flakes to fly.

    Does a new thread mean it's time to scrape the storage wax?

    Yes, absolutely! you should be scraping, tuning, washing and waterproofing at this point.

    Cheers ISBD!

    Great start VTF...your evaluation date will be some time in late May or early June (ideally) to determine if you gain permanent tenure in the starters box !

    After missing the first half of the season last year in gimp central and never getting back close to 100% I have a little extra adrenaline for the upcoming one, may it be safe, healthy and full of face shots for all!

    As awesome as dark_stars trip report is, it is still a trip. As we take enough grief here in the east our first turns of the year should be from the East be they WROD at Killington or fast grass MRG action.
