    Helmet / Goggle Interface

    You can always get one of those visor style helmets. Which become useless once you get any snow in them ...

    Ripsticks are supposed to be really nice. But they are asymmetrical and have a left and right.

    I’m looking for fast cruising skis and local shop recommends k2 mindbender 89 ti and nordica enforcer 88

    I've got the Mindbender 90ti (just the previous version of the 89) and they are a perfect all round new england ski. I ski them in a 184 and I'm 5'9". I might pick something more carving oriented if all you want to do is ski groomers, but the mindbender will be great if you ski some light powder...

    Last ski season 2021-2022 was the busiest US ski season ever with almost 61 million snow visits

    I didn't contribute much to the tally last year. Hoping to over compensate this season.

    They usually have people there when you pick them up. At least they did when I got a Catamount chair.

    Snowbound Expo Nov 18-20

    I don't think it's going to be as big as in the past. Seems like a rebuilding year. But there should be plenty of equipment vendors and the usual ski area representation. Though it looks to be dominated by IKON pass areas as they are a major sponsor. There's going to be a more participatory...

    Snowbound Expo Nov 18-20

    It's been at the World Trade Center in the Seaport for the last few years. Bayside got torn down like 10 years ago. Boston Common Garage is a great and cheap place to park. Walk or take the t for a couple stops.

    Snowbound Expo Nov 18-20

    This is the old Ski and Snowboard Expo in Boston rebranded. Looks like some good brands and a lot of speakers. At a minimum it's cool to look at shiny new ski gear and grab some freebies and stickers. They asked me to be an ambassador for some reason and gave me a code to offer free tickets...

    22/23 Passes

    Sticking with the Military Epic pass. Price is too good to pass up. Will also have a Wachusett pass for Night League. Not adding anything else. With my sons ski team schedule there's not a lot of opportunity for a lot of ski days in NH/VT.
