    Thanks for the tips. Hadn't thought about fall recovery. Hoping up hill to tension the harness makes sense. I've got a little over 100 days experience on a snowboard under my belt but just 2 days...

    I'm hoping to teach my oldest daughter how to ski this winter. She turned 2 in May. We live near Nashoba Valley so I think that's the target "mountain".

    I only really know how to snowboard but...

    Yes - for sure it was bad luck. I do think it had to do with the relatively recent change to the speed limit along that stretch of road. I got this ticket the same year they changed the limit (3-4...

    I don't think it was specifically 40 per MPH over - I think there is a base fee for any amount over the limit and then at a certain point you pay per mile over. I don't recall the exact amount but...

    All not true. EVERYONE on the road was getting pulled over. Cops were standing outside of their cruiser with the radar and a second and third cruiser were ahead by 1/4 mile or so. Another cop was...

    No other issues with my car. On this day there were 3-4 cruisers along that stretch of highway and they were pulling over everyone going over the limit by any amount. I was one of 3 cars pulled...

    I got a ticket for doing 73 in that section of 93 that the limit is 70.

    No way to fight it since its far enough North that its not worth the time. Ticket cost was small (120$? - can't remember)...

    Not to pick on you but I thought it was funny that you listed Shaw's in a remark about low-cost food!

    I saved 80$ a week switching from Shaw's to Whole Foods! Recently I've switched again from...

    Telluride is a tough first mountain to ride in CO. Keystone and Breckenridge are both much flatter in comparison and have good amenities. Then when you're feeling comfortable or the weather is...

    Interesting and thanks for the info.

    Do you guys have a meteorologist on staff for that or do you use someone who has other jobs but also aggregates and compiles forecasts from other sources?

    Just curious and thanks!

    Ahh good one! That one did get hairy sometimes, especially if there is a buildup of people relaxing below the unload area from the long traverse.

    On busy weekend days the rope speed was actually...

    I agree for the most part. My favorite part of superstar is climbing the glacier and bombing down the first pitch. You build up some fun speed and can playfully bounce through the moguls in the...

    Thanks for the link and photos to Killington zone. I was somehow unaware of that website. The glacier up top is definitely smaller than prior years but it does look like the spine of snow is bigger...

    There is a chance he was dazed and abducted and transported against his will. That seems to me at least as likely as a fugue state or a badly planned scam.

    I actually had to climb through the woods to get off at trail once at Sugarbush. I don't know ME as well as LP and it had rained a few days before. The groomed runs were icy but fine / carve-able. ...

    For the Bush it's more than just the snow making that is the problem. Sugarbush is weirdly bad at grooming. The trails they do groom are often icy and chunky. There is almost never decent corduroy...

    Making Jester a green would just make the crowding on the top of Organ grinder even worse. Some days the number of people hiking across that traverse is unreal.

    Altitude sickness is tough to predict I think. Stay hydrated. Don't booze to much the first few nights. Also, avoid hot tubs in my opinion. I spent 25 minutes in a hot tub at 10k feet once and...
