    Wow. Thanks for the heads up. I've already started the wheels in motion to preserve my content from there. The unofficial guides to Wildcat and Attitash will live on:

    So much for running the site from central America.

    Tough thing about it is hardly any notice, just 2 or 3 days before they pull the plug. Over the last 10+ years I have used that site to host hundreds, perhaps thousands of photos and dozens of articles, including every photo I have posted here. After Friday - poof. Now I have to scramble to archive some of my better, older photos and articles from there that I may not have copies of on my PC.
    With EpicSki's demise, Snowjournal barely resurrected last year, and some other ski forums running on fumes it makes you wonder? Is FaceBook a decent substitute for ski discussions, info/advice, and the sharing of stoke?

    I prefer to keep Facebook mostly separate from my ski discussions. I would probably annoy my nonskiing​ friends and family on Facebook more than I already do if I discussed skiing on Facebook as often as I do here.

    I enjoy the focused discussion of passionate skiers that a place like AZ provides. It's for the true nuts with skiing on the brain 365 days a year.

    I never participated much in epicski, though I frequently read their content on gear. That is a huge database to sadly see go away.

    Terrible. nobody likes using Facebook comments. The font sucks. The notification suck. If you turn them off, you miss it. Its hard to find where the unread post begin. Sometimes posts shows up in notifications and your news feed. It takes like 5 times as long to skip a topic. Often you miss stuff becouse of the news feed algorithm. Also sharing threw third parties is unreliable. I think that option comes and goes every 2 weeks. There is a reason college students don't use it to do more than view pages, and share events.

    Me too. I only started liking skiing stuff when I saw a girl I liked doing it. I think it could get you blocked by other people if your older, its more obvious to block a person than to block a page.

    If you need to offload content, bring it over the ****************************. I coincidentally just brought up the site on Friday and have been working to build it out. I wasn't planning to go live so soon, but the situation has changed. I am working frantically to pull off content from EpicSki with the author's permissions. Right now I am in the middle of pulling down the Unofficial Guides.

    Maybe we should start a group on FB.
