    Vintage ski pole baskets

    When looking at vintage ski photos for the 1940s, I am always struck by the enormous baskets on their ski poles. Anyone have insight as to why these have shrunk over time and what are the advantages/disadvantages of a huge old school basket ?

    Brattleboro Ski Hill rescue initiative- HELP!!!

    Thanks for the heads up on this campaign, just made a small donation. It’s a fun place to take a couple of turns on the way to/from Mount Snow. Love the community spirt of little hills like this.

    FWIW, Berkshire East has a 900kw wind turbine and 500kw solar field and my understanding is that it is enough to cover their entire operation. Are there any other self-powered resorts out there ?

    i got bored and booked a 2 week ski trip

    I don’t mind skiing alone, except in the woods. Do you risk getting stranded with an injury, try to latch onto a group at the top of the run, etc ? I am old and slow and antisocial, so I am reluctant to cramp anyones style with the second option. Meaning I often miss out on the good stuff...
