    I'd say that it's a pretty transparent move by Vail to choke it out for the domain name over the past few years. They pushed out all the long time moderators a couple years ago.
    Like I said, get a life.

    That guy has a bunch of videos on YouTube. What is the point that? If that's the kind of content on EpicSki then it's probably for the best that it's dead.

    There was a regular at Mission who used to ski like that, we called him Nopolio.

    Ya know, now that I think about it, I seem to recall that "Barking Beavers" was the original name that they called themselves.

    the topic of this e-mail is far more urgent. In December of 2012 Vail Resorts/Mountain News Corp. bought the EpicSki Forum because of its URL. Vail has since been hands-off in terms of content though they terminated the consulting contracts for the existing administrators and took the IT support in-house. EpicSki Forum is on a platform called Huddler that is being discontinued by its owner Wikia. Huddler is a convoluted platform that would take a high level programmer 2 months to migrate. Vail Resorts/Mountain News Corp obviously doesn't want to spend the money to do this. Here is the announcement posted about 4PM yesterday:




    "The EpicSki forum will no longer be available after April 28, 2017, due to our current hosting provider discontinuing its forum services. We appreciate and thank all of the forum members, moderators and site managers for your years of dedication and contribution to the conversation and community. Those EpicSki members who would like to retain their photo albums, unofficial guides, and all other content should download that to their personal storage device by no later than noon MDT on Thursday, April 27, 2017."

    http://www.epicski.com/t/150694/rip-epicski-1999-2017 This announcement has generated 420 mostly outraged comments in the past 23 hours.




    The Epic Ski Forum is one of the two most active ski forums in North America, with 55,000 users. I personally post there about 400 times a year. Because of the very short notice, 18 years of content, much of it extremely valuable to a lot of passionate skiers, will disappear this Thursday. As one poster noted, this is the equivalent of burning down a library or museum. Users were given less than 72 hours notice to save their content before it is destroyed.




    What we want is for the 18 years of content to be saved as an archive, and as a community we should be able to get enough people to pay for that and take it off your hands. The programming job to put the archives back online under a different URL can take longer, and one poster employed at Google has already volunteered to work on that. Everybody understands that Vail wants to control a URL named epicski.com. We also understand that is not part of Vail's core business to support an independent ski forum indefinitely. However Vail Resorts/Mountain News Corp will earn the undying emnity of a large number of active and passionate skiers if 18 years of valuable historical content dies on Thursday. It's a huge PR nightmare for which you could be torched on social media but should be easily preventable if someone steps up and exercises some common sense here.

    I always felt a feeling of desperation to monetize Epic Ski. It creeped me out a bit. It seemed forced. The ski experience being promoted by those in power was just not my cup of tea.
    But there were a good number of solid ski enthusiasts there.

    RIP. - I made a few Ski buddies there.
    I am in this Photo
    I left just before that photo was taken. I didn't ski with most of those people but having 4ster show us around Snow Basin for free was a big bonus. We had a sub-group that rented a house and I still ski with those guys to this day. The guy on the far right in that photo almost died coming off Baldy into Peruvian Gulch on that trip. Guy on the far left rips (Goniff) despite the fartbag he was wearing back then. No insurance salesmen in our group but we did have a lawyer and a dentist; neither are overwieght and both rip.

    I have gotten many deals in the Epic Ski gear swap because all those dentists would buy shit they didn't need and then unload it, unused, for a killer price. I just picked up my "skinny" (86 underfoot) skis from Epic Gear Swap for $200 shipped. There was not a mark on them...I fixed that at Killington on Saturday. Another time, I got a pair of Barons for $25 shipped. I'm going to miss taking gear off their hands.

    I stopped posting on Epic once they started banning people that were the funny, edgy folks over there. I had been lurking on TGR under a different name for years. I have been in touch with Phil and Sierra Jim for advice on skis because the dudes know their shit. Solid citizens, too.

    Epic was in a downward spiral...I would look every now and then when the weather was shitty and I didn't have anything better to do; it became the stereotype that the maggots thought it was all along...and maybe worse. I'm not sad..it was what it was and it imploded. Maybe Vail helped it along but it was dying a slow death anyway.
