    I went bib, no shirt. My tan is amazing. And Skyeship does enable the occasional after work couple of laps. Indeed, I took laps.

    FD, while my wife was pregnant with our 2nd, I was secretly planning a trip to the Revelations. At about 7 months pregnant I brought up the trip, “it would be twenty days, and we’ll both be on parental leave, perfect timing.” She came back with “if you go, better put everything in something water tight, it’s going to sit on the lawn waiting for you to pick it up!” At least your wife offered to ship your stuff for free.
    Looks like a fine lap.

    Ha, the offer to ship was made but likely would not have been followed through on but it never hurts to try!

    I am no expert but you have to save r5 for the biggest it gets. Unless it goes to 11.

    Didn't take any pics of it early Sun morning since our view was somewhat obscured by blowing snow.
    But it still looked pretty ... big!
    I suspect it got dinged on its R rating b/c although "connected from Lower Sluice through Center Bowl and all the way to Chute" is probably full width for that "path" it nevertheless fell short on the length:

    Clearly you need to spend less time skiing and more time reading the Ski the East Facebook page. Much knowledge about a great many things being shared there.

    I’ve tried, I really have,to follow that page and refrain from making snarky comments. I just can’t. It’s not in my nature. Those people are beyond belief.

    From my reading of the posts on various eastern ski fb pages, there must be a good half dozen climbing skins that have been forgotten or left behing in the New England back/side-country at the moment.

    Also, BM, your missing out on some great go pro footage of people skiing very slowly and stopping at every turn to look around and consider the next tree they want to avoid.

    It’s the Brothers with the speedometer at the bottom of their vids I miss most. That and the guy with the beef about cell phone coverage at Stowe.

    Those guys bother me so much and I can’t put my finger on why. I also miss the guy trying to sell Brahmas used for MSRP.

    Man, I just went down a rabbit hole over at ski the east. Holy beaterville, it’s glorious! I don’t get it, TGR hosted a ski day at Pico yesterday, and we weren’t invited? How is this possible?

    The Russian bots are working!

    Any comments on this weekends form of moisture? I am seeing 50% chance of maybe something happening somewhere. Cavemen weather forecasters could do that.

    Go high. The other two times the Mansfield Stake topped 10 feet at the end of march, it ended up peaking at 132" and 149"

    Their greatest achievement was in the wake of that massive January windstorm. Instead of skiing the super deep pow in the trees they posted a SICK vid of themselves "skiing" the wind fucked Face Chutes at Jay. It was A M A Z I N G.

    While that may look ridiculous to us almost professional skier dentists, I could see those being attractive to people who just go out and cruise groomers at lowish speeds. Why cram your foot into a stiff alpine boot if you don't really need the performance characteristics that boot provides. I would say it is almost a bit of a modernized throwback to the old leather ski boots.
    However, if you ever plan to push yourself beyond 25 mph on a blue cruiser (let alone bumps, powder, or any "difficult" conditions), using that snowboard boot hybrid setup is likely not going to treat you well.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Aircraft grade Aluminum! The dude rocking these at Okemo yesterday was no groomer cruiser. He meant serious bidness. Most importantly, he slung those things over his shoulder like a Boss (just like in the video!!!!) while strutting back to his Jeep Rubicon. Would have loved to share a beer with him if we had more time.

    I know very little about ski anything but mrs FD tried a bunch of boots on at a fitting at SB last fall and when she got to the apex boot she stood up and said done, most comfortable by far of the 5-6 options she checked out. She will likely never push their limits on the hill so they should last a while, which is a good thing considering the ludicrous cost...you two plankers pay way too much for equipment!
