So given the recent threads about backpacks here and on other skiing forums I decided to see if there were other options for those of us who really want water while skiing. I found this under-the-jacket hydration pack which seems pretty slim.
I just ordered one and if it shows up in time I'll try it out this weekend. The other things I normally carry in my pack will go in pockets.
Just make sure you throw out your empties. Sick of seeing cans and bottles strewn under the liftline.
Wachusett has now implemented a policy of not allowing backpacks on their lifts, asking those that ride the lifts to place packs on their laps when loading.Anyone see/hear any ski areas instituting new policies for packs on lifts? On Sunday Sugarbush was asking people to sit with their bags in their laps and specifically mentioned it was as a result of the incident at A-Basin (although this message didn't seem to be consistent from all lifties...but that could just be some staff being lazy or not caring). I'll have to admit, riding the lift with my pack in my lap was refreshingly comfortable.
