    A few years ago I was skiing every weekend day and every other day I could.
    Lately I've been into winter biking, as a result I ski less and less each year. I generally only pick days when the snow...

    Halfway down my first run i felt like I had it back.

    Not be a jerk, but how's the I70?
    When I read stories about the weekend traffic on that road, I am glad I live where no one wants to come ski.

    I also laugh at this.
    Or at the "powder days" when it's 3-4 inches of dust on crust.

    If I only have one set of skis, I'd prefer them to be optimal for the conditions I normally ski.

    I think they might have been rental poles at one point, so maybe "stolen from rental shop" is my actual answer.

    I wonder how much that came into play, he probably knew how to get on the chair without anyone seeing (or even had someone help him)

    I wonder how long he'd planned it.
