I don't visit this site often enough to know how much you contribute.
    I don't know how much NOSKI posts on the skiiing side of the site, but I only hang around here for the varied discussions in Misc. and the occasional banter in the hiking forum. (Been hiking for almost 25 years) Did do some x-counrty skiiing for a while and loved it. May take it up again if I can find a place to do it with the dog. Do a Google search for Skijoring and you'll see what I mean. Way cool.

    Hello Everyone

    Just wanted to introduce myself since I want to start posting on this site. My name is Tom, and I reside in Massachusetts. My favorite ski area of all-time is Sugarbush, but my home mountain (due to proximity) is Wachusett. I work full-time in the Biotech industry, but my real passion lies in my part-time pursuits.

    I work p/t for SnoSearch (a ski and snowboard travel agency that is responsible for bringing alot of folks to the MRV every winter, www.snosearch.com) and I am also working this season as a Ski Patroller at Wachusett (nights). I spend my free time hiking and thinking about snowboarding and skiing. I try to hit a new ski area every season, and I also try to either hike Mt. Washington once a year, or ski/ride Tucks in the spring. Think Snow!

    Welcome ThinkSnow.

    Wachusett is my home mountain as well. I will be up there a lot on weekday nights, we should meet up sometime.


    I tried out for the Wa ski patrol a couple years ago and after they accepted me I decided to back out... the whole buy your own parka etc. kinda got me down, plus the rewards in subsequent years in terms of passes really benefits patrollers with familes. Which I don't have.

    Maybe I'll try out again at the end of this year now I have more permanent living arrangements and a steady job. Got the EMT cert so I'm set as far as that goes...

    Late Bloomer

    Hello all,
    I have been lurking here for a week, and have found these forums to be very informative, and the members to be polite and helpful. I thought I would start out with a background post.

    I am a 43yo father of two boys(11 & 14)who have been skiing for 6 years with their Mom. This past season she was kept off the slopes for health reasons, and I was drafted as the replacement Ski Parent. Did I mention I have never skied in my life? I started out on MLK day at Butternut. I spent Superbowl Weekend at Stratton, half a dozen Feb/March days at Belleayre and finished the season at Hunter.

    I hike in the Hudson Highlands a few times a week, all year round, and this spring I took up Hang Gliding. Now the boys and I are chomping at the bit to get back out on the slopes. Belleayre will be my regular mountain, since the kids season pass is too good to pass up, and it works for all our skill levels. I just hope to be able to keep up with them this season.

    Hey Yardsale, welcome. Let me know if you plan any trips to Hunter; I'm a regular and would be glad to show you and your sons around. My 2 oldest boys (11 and 9) would love the company too.
