    Yeah, I'm not using ad-blockers on this browser, and I've never noticed the one at the bottom either. The top one is usually something I've shopped for, or am in the process of shopping for, so it doesn't bother me either.

    Alpine Zone really wants me to buy a $300,000 wristwatch. And visit online gambling sites where the grand prize appears to be a Russian mail-order bride. If only there were a way to figure out what people visiting a website dedicated to discussing skiing 365 days year might be tempted to buy.

    Well, there is a website dedicated to figure out what you might be tempted to buy, it's called Facebook.

    I find the ads are a lot less intrusive here than at NMS.

    That would be good feedback to give. They have a thread dedicated to these type of comments.

    But what sub-forum. Way too may sub-forums to hunt thru to find stuff. Not everything needs to be taken out of "General Discussions" and given its own sub-forum. It makes it take waaay too long to pass thru, see what's new, read it, and be on your way... hint, hint

    I can tell you for a fact that back in the day it was a nice second income. Also free lift tickets and gear. It also had enough value to be sold for a good amount of money.

    So true...I much prefer all skiing related topics in one forum instead of numerous sub-forums. 95% of the time here on AZ for example I only refresh this specific sub-forum that this thread is in and never look at any of the other sub-forums.
