    450 vert. I grew up there when it was Timber Hill. I hope it reopens, areas like Alpine Mtn are important as feeder hills.

    FYI Starthaus is having their Nordica Blem Sale.

    Still some great deals to be had. Quantities are good on Helldorados, Steadfasts and women's skis.

    Blizzard Skis

    The Brahma is a Bushwacker with a Bonafide construction and a slightly stiffer tail. It is a Bonafide for the east and the compromise you are looking for.

    Do lobster (3-finger) gloves really work?

    I use the Hestra Heli-Mitts as my regular glove. Mine are about 4 years old and are great in a multitude of temps. I like them more that a traditional mitten or glove.

    Oldest Ski You Still Use

    You mean my Scott Superhots? yeah, they suck. I do have Spademan "rental" plates so I can use them with a newer boot, like my 1982 Nordica Polaris.

    So EpicSki has basically been bought by Vail Resorts ...

    We are in a be business as usual mode at this point. I am sure the Epicski name is important to them. We deal with Northstar (a Vail resort) on a daily basis and we have had nothing but a professional interaction with them.

    Help me design a topsheet for a frontside carver...

    I would suggest symmetric graphics vs. asymmetric, better for swapping skis left and right, something that is done a lot to keep edges fresh for a frontside carver. I do a lot of ski reviews and would be glad to help with on snow testing. PM me.
