    Has there actually even been a TGR Skioff?

    In lieu of a recent thread, I must ask the honest question: Has there actually ever been a TGR Skioff? Maybe some one who has been here longer than me can reference an actual skioff.
    The skioff challenge has elevated to the point of paid expenses and a cash bounty to the winner. It might really happen!
    I mean a real skioff, not friendly banter with a competitive run at a BBI.
    I mean strangers from TGR meeting up, and dueling to a skioff. 2 strangers, with just TGR screen names known, that have argued to the point where only a skioff will prove who is superior, and a skioff is the only resolution.

    A second serious question is it:
    Skioff
    or
    Ski-off
    or
    Ski off?

    I've chanted it many times, but I have never had to spell it.

    Fact check: Mustonen has never claimed any superiority. = True

    And i'm sorry if it seemed like I insinuated that.

    What is the scoring criteria?

    Style, speed, gnarly line?
    First to the bottom, pick your own line?
    Chinese downhill?
    Judges?

    Do you need a full sized spare tire to participate or can you risk it just bringing along a donut?

    in this instance, it is a matter of one man's opinion.

    but if there were ever to be a tgr freeride comp judged by a panel of mags, i would be so down.

    A few years back there was a ski off scheduled at Alta between digitaldeath and 4ply. 4ply was a no show, so digitaldeath posted photographic evidence that confirmed he was actually there. (This fact alone blew peopleís minds...). Then 4ply posted the most lame excuse in skiing history. He claimed that because it was boilerplate bumps, not powder like he expected at Alta, that the ski off was invalid. The TRG all agreed that was a bogus excuse and demanded 4ply reimburse digitaldeathís $37 lift ticket. 4ply refused to pay up and mayhem ensued.

    That is the origin of the $37 joke you see on here.

    You can go with just sealant but maybe donít expect TGR reimbursement for any mishaps. Or TGR sympathy if you fail to show because of a flat.

    Thank you, that's hilarious.
    I'm good for competitor tickets for the next ski off at the Alta...

    Whatever the spare size, or lack thereof, it must be checked!

    Benny was on his way, but then tragedy struck while he was disembarking from the chair.

    Tipp brought DD out to Utah a few years ago, along with Arty and another old time Mag. SFB and I met them on the hill. Pretty sure this was the same trip. (I could be wrong). DD could actually ski, he could hold his own. 4 ply, the jury is still out.

    Back in the day didnít Highway Star have the habit of calling everyone out for a ski-off or am I mixed up?

    There was some crazy stuff that went down back in the day before social media took off. This place is so tame now in comparison.

    Whatís crazy is that it wasnít that long ago that Alta had $37 lift tickets. Now itís $141 before taxes and thatís low season pricing. Bet thatís worth the extra minute of flats to get to the bottom of Supreme. Or do you ski Alta for all the snowmaking theyíve put in? Or is it the new extension on alfs that pushes it over the top. Huge price increase without much changing. It was $79 in 2013.
