    If you are planning a demo day in southern VT at any point, be sure to pm Buttaflake who is the self-appointed minister of authorized demos and representatives. Beware, if you are not planning to sell Rax through his shop, your application will be denied.

    Yeah, he is the Extreme Carver (patents pending) and I am just a normal tax payer
    For those of you with some aspiration in physics: his contact area is much bigger than mine => less plastic deformation of snow mass, lower friction....
    If I had even smaller RaxSki like

    Yes, I will come on my knees then
    But now i am serious. Are you saying, Binky, that VT has become a banana republic since my last visit in 2009? Terrible!

    well, he would be even more vehemently opposed to your sales campaign. He is adamantly locals only...

    Is Magic still the one & only mountain that threw you off it's slopes? Please tell me we still have that claim to fame? Pretty sure they'd let donkeys ride down the mountain & you got tossed. You are indeed a legend mang.

    Let me admire you memory, RustyGroomer! Well, it was in March 2009.
    One day later, the summit piste on Canon Mts was closed for public. As it was extremely icy and I was just about to test a Rax prototype with the sharpest fin ever, I asked a patrol man for an exception. He replied that I was free to enter the slope just after he goes away.

    So I did but then I was persecuted by the whole patrol team until they got me and pronounced a warning. Well I was staying in a house of Brad
    who in turn was a friend of Canon´s president.

    Greetings from Austria, Vt-Freeheel!
    I feel ashamed that I have not come to East Coast since 2009.
    Believe me. today´s RaxSki would carve much better in your "blue ocean ice" than 2009´s models.

    Tom, come west. We need you. The legendary Kirkwood suffers the twin curses of Vail* and a very thin snowpack. If it weren't for a thick ice layer established during the heavy January rains, we'd be closed. Rax would get us past the "hard snow" holds and give some meager consolation.

    * it hasn't really snowed under Vail management, not like it used to.

    Wow, bad music, bad skiing/snowboarding and bad camera angles!
    TfA, you owe me 10 seconds of my life back.
    Kinda jealous of the snow though. I've been on the bike on and off since Presidents Day.
    No longer stuck.

    Do I need to check in to obtain your permission first?

    I don't have an authorized rep in the area.

    Tom, way to get after it, you're killing it. Don't listen to the negativity.

    If Dunfee was on top of things he would set up a Friday Q&A with you. Sage, Ian Mc, Mike Douglas etc. are cool and all, but you're in another category altogether.
