    Wow! Talk about a lot of generalizations. Every club in EICSL is different, with different dues/fees structures, work requirements and long term financial planning. The statements above may be...

    A good organization to try to find a club through would be the National Ski Council Federation. It's the national organization for many ski councils which are made up of ski clubs. The website is...

    I think I'd have gone for a sit in. With your weight lower they're more stable in open water and don't get blown around as much. A lot of the ocean kayaks are in the 14' range, but for general use...

    I just stuck up a link to the patrol web page on Facebook. Amazing that an over privileged little idiot can do that much damage and that the mountain would over react in such a way as to so severely...

    As one of those poorly paid instructors my guess is that we're just a profit center for the mountain. For all of the reasons you mention you'd think that keeping lessons as cheap as possible would...

    Back in my college days I had a Fiat convertible (which my father nick named the red peril). The ski rack sat on the trunk and because the car was so low to the ground the ski tips were actually...

    Kind of bizarre. The link at http://www.bewisports.com/expos/boston takes you to the hotel, not the trade center.

    If you like Italian I can recommend LoGrasso's. It use to be a sub shop/deli that converted into a restaurant 4 nights a week. I believe they now just run as a restaurant. I lived in Gloucester...

    I have heard that cattle rustling is still alive and very profitable as your article says. It's still a major problem out West.

    It'll be interesting to see who they get to replace Ski Market. Not sure if you were aware, but EICSL use to run a ski swap at the ski show prior to Ski Market.

    We got a free mid-week pass from Jay when we ran an EICSL trip there in December. I figure I can grab at least another day or 2 there after Wildcat closes. Last I heard I think Wildcat picked up...

    Can't say I can recall trying them in bumps. I bought them as a ski I could take out West and use more as a spring ski around here once I'm done racing for the year. Don't see why you couldn't use...

    I have a pair of 170 Grizzlys and you can definitely feel the difference. If you want to use the aggressive setting the ski will definitely carve an arc, but you have to get it out from under you. ...

    Just thought I'd mention Blue Hills is open again. Even after all this rain I'm sure there is still plenty of snow. It looks to be 5 or 6' deep in places.

    Probably headed over there on Sunday...

    I know what you mean. The 11 came out just a couple of months after I bought my 10, but it seemed like 1 step forward, 2 steps back with the features. I've started doing more clips as well and it...

    Happy to hear that given that we have that 3.5 day trip up there starting the 17th. I'm sure glad I took that week rather than this past week for the EICSL trip.
