    Can anyone recommend a good ski for a beginner? I really hate the used skis I got last year. They're old and very stiff, and I always feel out of control. Any advice for a n00b? (I'm skiing on 20...

    KustyTheKlown, since you travel so much with your ski gear, care to offer any packing tips for a n00b? Is it a pain in the arse to fly with skis?

    The birds always win. I have a summer place on Cape Cod, and every year we lose more beach and fishing holes to a stupid bird called the Piping Plover. Now I have another bird I don't like.

    Yes, I'm one of those folks that skis Wachusett often and would love to explore a place like Haystack but just can't afford the price.
