    "Too Much Snow" and Winter Driving - The analogy

    Nokian hekkapeliittas on a subi outback. Overkill? definitely. But huge piece of mind to. By the way, the hekkapeliittas hold up well. Heard stories not so much for the blizzacks

    Moved from Florida to Jersey looking for advice and tips.

    Where did u get the voucher? I would also hit that mid week since the last time I was there was on my junior hs bus trip on friday nights (in jeans and on 100 cm rentals)... Would be fun to see again (midweek!)

    PA folks...anyone put their kids in the Blue bump program?

    Blue has two bump programs; one for newbies (bump wise) and one for more advanced. Greg Stahl is the instructor, excellent bump teacher and very passionate about bumps.

    Lowered my DIN setting

    Lowered my DIN setting

    Turned 50 this year and received an unsolicited AARP card. Meh, don't care. Got my skis back from their preseason tune and the shop informed me they were required to lower my DIN setting by one due to my age. THAT bothered me...

    Whiteface 12/28-31/2012

    Was there 28-30 with family. Agree this was the best I have seen WF during the Christmas week. Only time I have ever skied niagara without hearing my edges.

    snowed all day while I was at Bellearye today. Granted I was only there 8AM - 1PM but nice surprise all the same; 3" (first thing in AM, only 1" accumulation I think for the day) on top of crunchy groomed but fun never the less, better then what I was expecting. (Gawd, if my west coast cousin...
