    I did that once. The shop was happy to take my $50 or whatever they charged. They even blew out some hot spots. I called them first just to see if they'd do it and to find out what they'd charge.

    This is true for me. Before getting properly fitted years ago, I thought I was fine with off-the-shelf boots - no pain, no obvious performance issues. After getting fitted boots, I had occasion to...

    Cabrio (3 buckle) shells are popular among bump skiers for their progressive flex. They're also a lot easier to get on and off. Overlapping (4 buckle) shells are probably better for carving, where...

    The cheap stuff is usually quite comfortable - that's the main focus of the base product lines. It's when your feet are wedged into poorly fitted performance boots that pain happens. The main...

    They also implemented mandatory quarantine and cell phone tracking of positive cases. I'm sure that would go over great with the "privacy" fetishists here on both sides of the political spectrum.

    Professor salaries at the higher end of the pay scale are often funded through endowed chairs and should have no effect on tuition. If the Al Roker Professor of Meteorology is earning $500,000 per...

    They should shut down parking altogether. If you can’t walk to it, you shouldn’t be there (leaving aside the issue of whether anyone should be engaging in risky activities like skiing at this time)....
