    I'll get my friend to take some more chairlift sticker pictures. I'll make sure he gets some new ones though.

    As far as the 177 vs 184 fight goes, it sometimes boils down to what fits in the car the best.

    No really. I'm just trying to decide between the red one or a black one.

    10$ add-on for a day ticket to current indy pass holders. that's a pretty good deal for country club skiing.

    You think it's crusty now, wait till this week.

    The new M6 Mantra holds shockingly well on ice by the way. It's quite stable at high speeds too. Even in 177. It could be the go-to ski for the upcoming weekend.

Before I could collect myself and stop the ski popped off and I hit the deck in a cloud of snow. 10yo boy asks if I'm ok, "yep" and a maintenance worker 30' away standing by a snowmo said "impressive". I just reset my shit and headed to the lift, not sure if any of the go pros caught it.

    Yesterday came in hot for a stream crossing and got 20' across a fallen log but ended up about 5' short of the end. Hooked my poles behind a 1 1/2" "tree" and tried to pull myself up the slight grade to get across. Poles came undone and I weighted my right ski which broke off the top layer and I pitched over 5' submerging myself in the snow. Almost 5 minutes to get my skis free from the snow and released from my feet, pick myself up and click beck in. Once out I shook off, looked back and thought "almost".

    I'll be out tomorrow looking for and avoiding Jerry moments.
    Being able to laugh at your own gaffes and sharing it with others is a humbling experience and so much funnier than taking cheap shots at strangers. I appreciate your honesty.

    The first time I drove to Hunter on my own I thought I was the biggest badass in the world. I am coming off the top for my first run and I see all a bunch of skiers all shoulder to shoulder staring down lower K27. So as the biggest badass in the world i don't stop a beat, and send it off the lip into the moguls. For a split second I thought I was glen plake at cham, probably had by tails up near my back, too. This vision is shattered upon landing, when I realize the perfect looking moguls beneath me are completely refrozen mounds of garbage. My ski pops off and down I go tumbling. On a rotation before I stop I see the big group getting their gear straight to push off in the other direction.

    Still my favorite (and only) fall.

    These are some amazing self deprecating stories. I feel like I'm reliving these in real time with you guys...keep them coming.

    If you’re not falling, you’re not trying.

    That being said, it’s still fun to laugh at Joeys and Jerrys.

    I forgot, I am such a xc / tele jong. Anyone who thinks they're seriously too cool for school should be forced to free the heel a couple of times a year. Humbling.

    Yes! And laugh at yourself! Which is pretty much a constant when I'm snowboarding.

    Cream cheese turns were so fun today!

    You think things are prickly in this forum? The natives are arming themselves.

    What crust? I’m only finding a layer of solidified medium to hard density powder.

    Speaking of Joey’s, twice today and once last week i skinned up my local spot with one boot in walk and the other locked thinking the whole time I’m just tired (skied 9 days straight). At the top switching over “fuck I skinned up locked on that boot” click the walk side up and lock the walk side and ski down with one locked one walk. Also the other day I never clicked in my heal and sped off over a jump with a shit landing, took a twig to the jugular, and have been walking around town with a gash that looks like a hicky from an overzealous lover.

    That dudes a transplant, aka not a Vter

    Edit to add: this dick and some of his transplant friends are radicalizing people I know that came from good families. He isn’t someone to joke about, and he certainly doesn’t represent the good people of southern VT. Thanks for triggering me.

    Since we are telling Jerry stories.... I thought I would be slick Saturday night after some laps at Bolton and just ski down to my car in the lot. It was snowing pretty good the last hour or so with about 1-2 of fresh on the ground and when I was coming up to cross the road it was covered. So i kept my momentum up so I could make it across the road and nope, when I hit the first tire track it was like hitting a river of glue. Oh shit... I managed to keep my balance crossing the first lane but didn't make it past the second one. Skis just stopped dead in the middle of the road and I did a double eject to faceplant and almost made it to the first row of cars.. And of course it was the time that a LOT of people were leaving and were able to witness my impressive skills that I displayed. I am pretty happy that I don't know anyone here yet!

    4 or so new inches skied amazing at Mad River today. Crust is gone and steeps were soft and smooth. If only I could always ski here mid week when it’s empty.
