2nd post wins!   Being out of shape is the common enemy for nearly all ski trips.  Not being strong enough to property ski the stiffness/weight/camber of the boot/binding/ski is a real killer.  Most skiers' gear is way too heavy for their strength level.   Feet just can't handle 15K of vert the first day out.  Get in your boots now.  After a few weeks put some weight in your pack and be on your feet.  If you can't spend hours walking around in your boots there's a...
Awesome!  Beautiful fish- I just showed Blaze- he's pretty envious!   Congrats again Adipose!
  Only your bootfitter can do that!
Great idea.  Also look for a sock with more shear.  Look for a sock with the most slippery fibers.  Bridgedale Micro Light are pretty smooth.  Go to a fancy men's shop and get a thin 100% silk sock or to a pharmacy and get a diabetic sock made out of shear polyester.  Some "medical socks" are very slick.
I'm very partial to Jackson.  If you are in college, I think you can get a college pass.  There are great deals through Jackson Hole Central Reservations.

I'd love that.  Yes Blaze is tying flies...  In fact the other night there was a Wounded Warriors program (or something similar) at Jack Dennis Sports- (an excellent ski, fly and hunting shop) and he got invited to demonstrate fly tying for a bunch of Veterans.  It was very cool for him to meet some of America's greatest.   Hope you're off season is going well!
