    Amen. The molds cost something like $500k to $1M, they aint changing them without getting their ROI back.

    Now that it's a publicly traded company, they're going to need to continuously improve upon EPS, so yeah, they're going to keep adding crap you don't need with debatable "improvements" and running...

    It is?

    I always assumed Thanksgiving Weekend was limited to the diehards and opening day/weekend crew (and almost always at reduced rates).

    That happened to a guy I was skiing with at Smuggs back in March. He did a roll-forward and hit his head on a small tree (maybe 4" or 5" in diameter) and it left about a 25 size dent on his helmet.

    They're lighter and more resilient. Try good poles versus cheap poles and you should notice a big difference in swing weight, which is really nice. Personally I like the Trigger series by Leki,...

    Couldn't there be some preference at that point. My hockey skates are 6.5, but I wear an 8.5 or 9 in shoes. My skates are NOT comfortable, but they feel like they're an extension of my body.

    Once you go Leki, you never go back.

    I agree. I doubt helmets offer THAT much protection from serious injury, but I think they're probably wonderful against preventing minor to medium injury. I'd love to see a well-run study on this...
