Hi I'm C. T. Haywood and make my residence in Boxford, Mass. I am a hiker and outdoorsdude. Camping, peakbagging, and hiking is my life apart from working on my Eagle Project.
I am writing a book called An American Original, a multigenerational account of the triumphs and shortcomings of our forebearers through one family. This spans from 1630-1840 in two parts set in Maine and Massachusetts.
Currently I make plans of attending Hillsdale College in Michigan, majoring in history. My vocation will be teaching history and going to grad school to get my doctorate in history.

Indeed. Welcome everyone. This is probably the most civil and friendly skiing forum out there...

Yes, I patrol this site too & have just lurked until today.

I'm a Magic Mountain lover. I rode the planks for 10 years, then swithed to the board for 10 years. This year, I picked up some new skis & boots and was amazed what a difference the newer gear has made. It's been nice to switch back & forth between skis & the board, but I'm a boarder at heart.

New Member Intro Post

I stumbled upon the AZ a few weeks ago. Nice to have a spot with lots of east coast info.

I have been skiing for almost 25 years. Two years ago I started to tele and this winter my brand new alpine skis sat ignored in the corner of my gear room.

I ski the Catskills primarily, mostly for the shorter drive (and the past two seasons I think better snow than Vermont). I get a season pass to Catamount for the family. My 3 kids are all under 10 and Catamount is a good place for them. Crowds are small, parking is close to the lodge and the skiing is decent for them.

I put a fork in the season on April 21st at Killington. Skied Superstar in the morning and spent the afternoon making a few trips over to Cascade which had great skiing and made the trip. Everyday after today I am one day closer to next season.
