    skiNEwhere,

    I missed a lot of days and a full race season last year due to a bug bite. Lyme disease took out both knees for 18 months. Finally can walk normally without needing fluid aspirated...

    I think I got lucky and didn't pull the trigger on the Experience 88 at the end of last season. Instead I pulled it last month and got the 2015 version with the Air Tip. This is honestly the...

    That's the best part about skiing; Just when one thinks they've mastered it, somebody hucks a double front corked 1080, kills the race course or outruns an avalanche straight lining a couloir. ...

    I don't get sick of it but I certainly lose interest. Mid-season there isn't much that will stop me from skiing every weekend and often 3-day weekends. Early season I'll sometimes bail knowing that...

    You didn't miss anything at Killington. The Friday/Saturday rain did a real number on the conditions there. Although snow depths are great there is a thick solid ice layer fairly near the surface. ...

    I'm an annual customer of the ski 3. I've never stepped up to the ski 5 because I'm afraid I wouldn't use them all. A couple years back they allowed the purchase of 2 ski 3 booklets which let you...

    Key words, "no injuries". A lucky shot and the sacrifice of one old double probably saved the lives of a lot of skiers.

    I wish it had to do with snow pack but for many resorts it comes down to $$. Not skier visits but rather insurance. All resorts have expensive liability and worker's comp. policies which are term. ...

    Agreed, that is not what I'd call a chute. Plenty of room to turn and plenty of lumps and bumps to help control speed. When you do it, make sure you hit that lil' 10 footer on the right at 1:00....

    Agreed. Bleeding speed in a chute gets pretty risky though. The reason we drop into the chute is because there's a fresh dump. After a fresh dump is when there's increased concern about how much...

    Unfortunately for me at least, most reviews are like this one where edge to edge transition speed isn't even a factor. I don't judge skiers at speed and I often discount the speed performance of a...

    Sunday River Saturday and Sunday.

    Report looks like rain on Saturday and then freezing hard for bullet proof corduroy on Sunday. I guess things can only improve from that forecast.
