    New Jersey Meadowlands ski dome to open summer of 2017?

    Not a great pic, but here is a line of bumps I skied at a mall in Korea:

    New Jersey Meadowlands ski dome to open summer of 2017?

    Indoor skiing is a blast when there's a bump line or two. It doesn't seem like management is interested seeding moguls, but a group of 5+ like-minded skiers should be able to get a good line going before the session ends.

    Boot Flex

    I did that once. The shop was happy to take my $50 or whatever they charged. They even blew out some hot spots. I called them first just to see if they'd do it and to find out what they'd charge.

    If you can make it to Wayne, NJ, Greg Pier, previously of the now closed Heino’s, is an excellent boot fitter now associated with Ski Barn. Here is a link with additional info: http://www.heinosskiandcycle.com

    Boot Flex

    This is true for me. Before getting properly fitted years ago, I thought I was fine with off-the-shelf boots - no pain, no obvious performance issues. After getting fitted boots, I had occasion to ski my last pair of off-the-shelf boots again and realized just how ill-fitting (too large) and...

    Good luck with Basin! I ignored the red flags about Surefoot to my chagrin and just wanted to get my story out there in case anyone else is considering them and is skeptical of the online criticism. I'm sure they have plenty of satisfied customers and I bear them no ill-will. They tried what...

    Boot Flex

    I had excruciating pain with Surefoot boots that persisted no matter how much stretching and grinding they did. Turns out the pain was caused by their footbeds. Took them out and the pain went away. Which I only discovered after buying a new pair of boots and transferring the Surefoot...

    Boot Flex

    Cabrio (3 buckle) shells are popular among bump skiers for their progressive flex. They're also a lot easier to get on and off. Overlapping (4 buckle) shells are probably better for carving, where torsional rigidity is an important factor.

    Boot Flex

    The cheap stuff is usually quite comfortable - that's the main focus of the base product lines. It's when your feet are wedged into poorly fitted performance boots that pain happens. The main problem with the cheap stuff, as others have mentioned, is the slop the comes from boots designed for...

    Skiing is back!

    Can we use our elevator button sticks to swat away coworkers who invade our personal space?

    Skiing is back!

    They also implemented mandatory quarantine and cell phone tracking of positive cases. I'm sure that would go over great with the "privacy" fetishists here on both sides of the political spectrum.

    I vote on moving it to the Flatty thread!

    Vermont Likely to Close 3 State Colleges

    As others have mentioned, tuition has skyrocketed in large part because students have easy access to loans and administrators are exploiting that. A humanities degree from most colleges and universities is clearly not worth $200,000, but as long as we continue to encourage everyone to go to...

    Ski Resort Response to COVID-19

    I hope the locals get to skin it at least once restrictions are lifted. Would hate to see those seeded bumps melt unused.

    Vermont Likely to Close 3 State Colleges

    Professor salaries at the higher end of the pay scale are often funded through endowed chairs and should have no effect on tuition. If the Al Roker Professor of Meteorology is earning $500,000 per year, chances are that most of the money is coming from the endowment. Perhaps deep-pocketed...

    The "Earn Your Turns" Thread Spring 2020

    They should shut down parking altogether. If you can’t walk to it, you shouldn’t be there (leaving aside the issue of whether anyone should be engaging in risky activities like skiing at this time). There is no difference in driving 2 hours from the NH coast and driving 2 hours from just over...
