Couldn't ski for 5 years and in the middle of it even walking became difficult. Kept it quiet last year to make sure it would stick, but got back on skis again finally late last winter, and looks like through the combination of drugs and cancer treatments they're experimenting on me with, I'll be back out there again this year! FKNA! Hope to see you all out there for the turns that I have an even greater appreciation for now!

    And on that note.. my last year of skiing was Year 1 of the Moment Belafonte and I loved ripping on them. But they're a bit burly for me now that I don't have the muscle strength I used to. Hoping to find someone who has some Moment Deathwish's they'd be willing to unload to me on the cheap. Will be on disability the rest of my life and not much budget in there for gear! My old boss tossed me a couple bucks and hoping to use it to get matched up on a bit less stiff but still charger-capable ski.

    Thanks everyone.. glad to be back!!!
    Good for you getting back. I have a pair of the 188 rossi womens skis that were 99 on fire sale last year you can have for super cheap. They are about as forgiving as a 188 ski can be and super maneuverable.

    *TGR MOVIE in RENO TONIGHT*
    Wondering if it will be ok to roll up & get tix at door?
    Or is it likely to be a sell-out, like Squaw was?

    Hey, I've skied them several days. 115mm underfoot. 20m radius. Light tips. Very quick. They are just pink.

    Don’t get me wrong, I got right back on those Belafonte’s after 5 years off and tore it up even with my limited strength. Just would be a bit easier to not have to push that all around now and a Deathwish would be primo

    Nothing about parking, traffic, or respect for local culture. It's aimed at the "I schedule my powder days a year ahead" crowd, i.e. big spenders that might hesitate to pick Squaw from the menu of global options because they have a rep for shutting down when there's too much biscuits. The colonial overlords speaking to the citizens of the metropole, promising them a smooth overrunning of the natives. The answer, as always, to the real challenges of political dialogue as well as the fact that you can't always get what you want, is more hype.

    This is not fair at all -> they specifically said that there would now be a helicopter in the parking lot.

    That should eliminate 40-50 parking spaces over by the uniform shack.

    SKUNKED AT SILVER PEAK
    It's been more'n a week since I last skied, so I motivated and attempted to locate this sweet looking patch I've been eying from my crib for a few months. My poor geographical skills led me to believe it was still clinging to Silver Peak, but a drive up to Pole Creek quickly proved me wrong. A coupla roads that have hitherto been closed/gated the past several summers, were, in fact, open, so I did some 4X4 exploration, but still couldn't locate the snow I'd been looking at from afar.
    I did "stumble" upon the Bradley Hut. That place is kinda swank for a BC hut, imho (I've only ever stayed in a bare bones yurt and this was a full-tilt cabin) Plus, it has a frickin' DOUBLE-DECKER SHITTER (albeit, I got skunked on that too, as it's closed and you now have to (literally) pack out ALL of your own shit). Gonna have to rally a crew to reserve that sucker for a winter excursion as there's some great lines out there.

    Looks like I'mma have to return to Basin Peak tomorrow to hit a patch I saw on the last go-around (and to appease the soul after getting skunked today...I did make $77 on recyclables, though, so that's kind of a win...)

    Hey Dookie,

    Grubb hut has a double-decker as well, if you're heading to Basin Peak. Maybe you'll get lucky and it'll be open. No TR necessary, tho.

    Ran into the dude who created that video clip for Squaw at June Lake Brewing yesterday (Saturday). He was definitely drinking the koolaid.

    Dooks, obvious skiable patches close to the road on both Sonora and Tioga if you need to get a few to keep TAY going. Obviously a much longer drive.

    FKNA dude, that is some shit. Glad to hear you made it back. 666 or melee - hook a brother up!

    Wait, JLB makes their own koolaid?

    And thanks for the beta.

    What kind of asshole goes to a brewery and drinks koolaid? ;-) Love JLB.

    That video was hilarious and pretty much sums up the Squaw experience. All press releases, little action.

    Dude: "It's the first time patrol will be integrated."
    Me: "So like a patroller from Alpine can go over to Squaw?"
    Him: "Yeah."
    Me: "Ok. But if you're familiar with a mountain and have been working there for a while, doesn't it make sense to stick with what you're familiar with? For example, if you've been running routes on Keyhole and High Yellow, wouldn't it make sense and be safer to stick with your route rather than go run routes on Granite or Mainline Pocket?"
    Him: "Yeah, I suppose so."
    Me: "Ok cool. Got it."

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    (Note: I can see some instances where integration of patrol would be helpful. I just don't see it as some crazy groundbreaking thing. Like I said, dude was drinking the Renaissance koolaid. Don't knock JLB, their beverages had nothing to do with it. )
