    1. There’s a bar under the big umbrella now but they ran out of beer .
    2. Left at 545(sorry kids ) 410 by 630. 7:15 arrival ... kids programs don’t start until 9:15 but at least I made it in the usual time frame .
    3. The mountain was chalk full of beginners and intermediates... more evidence of economic excess.

    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.

    Back in the day (I used the KidSki leash/harness system that not only had a tip lock, but also a “wedge bar” that attached to the boots), 15 plus years ago, and I found it useful when introducing my 2 and 3 year olds to skiing. Gives them the feel for a pizza wedge until they understood and maintained the concept on their own. Useful, but to be ditched as soon as you can, to get the kids maintaining the pizza wedge (until they are ready for french fries) on their own.

    This was my approach when I had kids in programs. Yeah, they weren't crazy about the early rise, but they'd pretty much crash as soon as they hit the car. You have plenty of time for gearing up and a bite to eat before they head out.

    I'm doing my best not to cunt up the stoke thread here, so I'll just say it was a lot of fun to watch my 10 year old repeatedly blow past all the jongs tripping their way down terrain off of chair 6.

    For my daughter yes it was very helpful in building her confidence and for muscle memory. Without it she would try and pizza but couldn't get her tips together more like a widestance with parallel skis. The first time she used it she figured it out. Highly recommend.

    Agreed. Used them for both my kids and it made a huge difference. We were able to take them off about half way through the season.

    Told the boss I'd be feeling ill in the morning. Hoping there is enough soft stuff to cover up the rubble and make it worth it. I'll be checking the telemetry in the AM to see if I'm healthy enough for work.

    Apparently I offended a Crustal founder with my maymay when it got shared on their page. Come on up tomorrow for disrespect to the top and rain thru Sunday. I'll be here waiting

    A PSA (not PSIA) for anyone who cares: Though I've been meaning to attend a steep skiing/Gordy-ish camp for years, I know I probably never will due to timing/travel/cost/etc. Noticed that Andy Mahre (as well as his wife, Shannon) offer private advanced /expert ski clinics at White Pass and figured, what the heck, I deserve a good xmas present for myself and booked it. I prob haven't had a real ski lesson in 40 years (I'm old).

    Yesterday, I had my three-hour private with Andy and it was pretty awesome. To start, he's a laid back guy who just wants to have fun on the mountain. No real drills, just advice along the way as he observed what I was doing and how I could rethink my lines and flow better. Little tips that are easy to keep in the back of my head. We moved all over the mountain (he has a ton of little stashes I would have never located), had some fun and found some powder... on the lifts, we talked about ski industry gossip, filming for movies, family stuff and the usual... he's a good guy.

    Anyhow, would def. recommend if anyone is in a similar boat. Mahremade is their site. And would book again next year to take it up a notch. Private 3-hour was about $250 which included demo K2 Mindbenders (any size/model) if you wanted them. They also do group clinics for a little cheaper. If you're like me and, over the years, you've spent thousands of dollars for your significant other and kid(s) to take lessons that are quickly forgotten about... it's a downright bargain.

    If you're coming to shred Nash, make sure you bring a big enough spoon for the oatmeal and the debris
