I got out this morning as well on my backcountry XC setup. We got about 6" of heavy wet snow. Felt great to be sliding on two sticks again!!!

I went out with an old beater snowboard to a sloped parking lot and a few steep embankments around 10 last night... Silly but fun, had to get out in it!ImageUploadedByTapatalk1352423846.855321.jpg

Welcome aboard, Fiddletildeath. Anyone that skis and is into the bluegrass is someone I'd enjoy hanging out with!


Seeing that others were out there boarding/skiing in the thin cover somehow makes me feel less obsessive-compulsive. So thanks.:smile:

Just because we do it too, doesn't mean you (or us) are any less obsessive-compulsive. But, I have no qualms about my skiing addiction. :).

Is that sidewalk a blue or black? Is it usually groomed? Any lodging nearby?

Thanks for the welcome! I'm looking forward to a ridiculous season of awesomeness!

Ice Queen - given the conditions, the sidewalk was rated a double black. mandatory air off the sidewalk and sporadic shoveled driveways... however the lodging is luxurious, if you live here!

Double black is probably out of my league for now, I think I'll try Okemo instead.
