    ?? And why should he be? He was answering to BG who's been dispensing right wing pablum wherever he can stuff it, and he does it really well. So the breitbart remark is well deserved. And the point...

    You'll have a great time and more than likely improve your skiing skills upon coming back. You'll be amazed how easy the most difficult trails at Holiday Valley will be after your Colorado trip.

    We need some new snow. Taking deep breaths is much easier after a spirited run through trees or carving up some nice turns on an open slope :)

    I'm sure he hasn't. But given all that right wing drivel that he's lacing into the narrative, facts may not matter all that much.

    Nicely made points, flakeydog.
    They closely reflect how my VT living friends (and their friends) feel. Not having a ton of money, they enjoy a lifestyle that's high on value (what you get for your...

    Refinishing the bases with a dremel tool, or trying to somehow revive the waxless base seems like a lot of effort and the results may not be all that great. If you want to keep those skis and use...

    I like the idea of lapping groomers as conditioning. I always run into the conditioning issue. Sure, I can (and do) prep the legs with gym sessions (squats, lunges, isometrics - the hated sitting...

    I had a couple of powder days there in the past few years and that was before Vail took over so I'm not all that sure they did that in 100% of powder days. The mountain hasn't change much since...

    Any run with at least an intermediate pitch with fresh powder will be my instant favorite, providing that it's not crowded. But if I had to name a trail it would be Middle Earth with moguls just...

    Couldn't agree more. My absolute favorite bumps skis are the ancient ("straight") K2 KV Comps with 63mm waist. They are 185cm and I'm 5'6". The skis are light and super easy to turn in bumps. Alas,...
