    I've mostly heard good things about CA Ski Co last few years.

    Pretty sure my roommate is the best bootfitter, base tuner and overall encyclopedia of everything to know in the shop. Theron at Bobo's in Reno. He tuned skis on the circuit in europe for world cup racers, does a footbed class for masterfit and is a helluva bootfitter. It's like there's nothing he doesn't know. A lot of the ski reps in Tahoe bring their demo fleets down to Reno so Theron can tune them. Dude knows fucking everything. Don't work with anyone else. Tell 'em you want Theron. And yes, it's ok to tip for a killer fit.

    I had a positive boot fitting experience at Cal Ski Co in Berkeley. This was back in April. They have some guys who have been fitting people in boots for several years, including the dude from Marmot (RIP). Sorry I can't remember his name but he is good.

    Listening to the tree crickets here tonight...wonder if they'll survive Saturday's cold snap?

    Which brings up the philosophical dilemma--skiing a few inches of this season's snow on top of last year's patch. Does this belong in the 18-19 thread or the 19-20 thread?

    New snow made it skiable last week too. I'm comfortable with calling Sept 1 the first day of the new season. At least I'm just as uncomfortable counting the days in the new season as I would be in the last.

    Man... I move to CO, hope to have an earlier start to the season and see this.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.
