Thanks for the warm welcome!
The ribs have mostly healed (good thing I'm getting younger ).
Hope to see you folks on the slopes this winter.
Welcome to all our new neighbors here on the Alpinezone!

To beat the grim reaper in life it's not about how long you live but how you live it.
Board, get it? Haha, I kill myself....
My wife is from Newington, her folks still live there.

Welcome to the forums ski220. I assume you're a skier based on your name and you have an appreciation for fine German automobiles, care to tell us anymore about yourself?
Thanks for the welcome. At this stage in my skiing career I'm pretty much just into backcountry and powder. When it snows - we go. From where I live in Conn. it's usally 5hrs in a storm to northern Vt.. Hence the need for high powered 4wheel drive vehicles. My own ride is a Volvo V70R. My main skiing partners is the Audi S4.
Last year was epic as we went up for every significant storm. If you would like to see some video, go to 'youtube' and search ski220.
Friend of "crank". He refered me to this awsum forum site for the "like minded".
What I'm into these days is skiing, mt. biking and 12months of beach volleyball.
Thanks for the intro ski220. Sounds like you should fit in good here. We like videos, so that's a plus!
We have a few MTBer's around here too, where in CT do you usually ride?
Occasionally at Huntington with my friend Crank. Once in a great while in Trumbal. Mainly locally at Mianus river Park where recently we have begun trail maintanence and trail reconstruction projects via a "friends" group.
Wanted to do the intro thing, been lurking around for a while. Another Pennsy skier from paskiandride.com (mbike-ski) but don't/won't post anywhere near as much as GSSS! The age thread caught my attention a few weeks ago as I'm right in the thick of the demographic at fortysomething. Have skii'd every year since like fifth grade, sometimes just once or twice to my current 30 days +/- at Blue (home hill hence the handle), Greek Peak, with a trip or 2 a year to VT. Southern VT at this point since the whole family - MrsSnowBunski, 2 skiers and a boarder - come along now and are in a comfort zone although I'm trying to change that! Also ride mtb and play ice hockey when not on the snow...
