    Whatever Happened To The Denizens Of Epicski?

    Are there still constant arguments in the innerwebs on proper angulation? How about the dispute between 1 vs 2 deg side edge angle?

    My favorite gapic episode was when some douche started lecturing Gunderson about what exposure to use in skiing shots.

    I would love to read that exchange. I am sure it was epic, what with Grant's photography knowledge, coupled with his legendary inability to spell, leading the Gapic jong to assume he was talking to someone that had no clue, and causing him to dig his grave even deeper. Am I close?

    There were far more hilarious exchanges than that. Think big name professional skier getting lectured about venturing into the backcountry, maybe taking a course. lol...

    I hope the Wear the Fox Hat choked on his hat.

    Got a ban for a month after he spewed some inane shit and I called him out on that...and stated that he is a rancid old cunt.

    Go figure.

    The floggings will continue until morale improves.

    ^^^That's right UGASkiDog=Shredgnar SnoFun?

    Most of us left when Nolo sold it to Vail. Some hung around til the bitter end. Forums everywhere pretty much peaked in activity around 2008 then slowly died. Actually kinda surprised this place is still going. PugSki is giving it a hard run but actual active membership there is probably well under 300.. ACTIVE posting regularly. Probably quite a few more lurkers, but nowhere near what this place and EpicSki were doing around 2006.

    I got warned for making fun of Martin Bell in a thread about when Carridan website ads were saying he would personally deliver their $5,000.00 skis. I think I posted a photo of Eddie the Eagle and said isn't that this guy??

    I only ever really posted there when we staged an invasion, is was in like 2002 or something, we were posting nonsense and insults all over that place for a day or two They kept banning the accounts almost immediately and finally they blocked all new accounts for a while.

    As fast as we were starting new accounts and posting shit they kept deleting the accounts, it might have been Floater who said "accounts are going up and down over there faster than a 2 dollar hooker giving a blowjob!"

    All it was all a goof but it sure made them mad.

    Pretty much. Finally someone who knew who Gunderson was (common knowledge) asked something along the lines of “do you know the guy you’re arguing with has scored a bunch of magazine covers?” Didn’t make a difference though.

    My favorite guy was dchan...always good for some minute issue of technique

    I'm going to bring some Epicness here--every time someone asks advice on skis I'm going to tell them to get better fitting boots first. My favorite thread was Mr Gray vs Mr Red--2 skiers collide, which is at fault? Went on for many, many pages.

    It is true, most recreational level skiers could improve their skiing by being in properly fitted boots.

    3 degree side, gaper (seriously, go to 3 degrees--I'm a little torn on base edge angles, though).

    Pretty sure it was more like 2000 or 2001 when we did that. I remember I registered over there right before the invasion as 'Philth' because Phil Pug was moderating. They tolerated me for a little while before I got banned living up to the username.

    Even better was our war with the snowboarders (Snowboarder Magazine or something?). Those guys were remarkably stupid. My username was 'you're all dumb as rocks,' which for some reason seemed really funny when I'd post and then get the 'Thanks for posting, you're all dumb as rocks' message. I think you were Trayslidin' Dumbass.

    The Epicskiers weren't all bad, just heavily gapercentric and, as a group, pretty uptight.

    They seem to pop up here every once in a while. I never posted but would occasionally lurk for entertainment. My favorite was a thread titled something like "50 degrees, extreme lines" and was mostly a collection of 35-40deg inbounds runs. At one point, someone suggested Grandfathers on Little Wasatch in Telluride but it got rejected because someone else read it was only sustained 48deg. Grandfathers:
    It sucks to suck.
