 Do you really tip the driver? I have never seen anyone tip them and I have used summit stage a lot. I mean nothing wrong with it for sure but it's certainly not expected thing. Also what other passes did you drive over? Hoosier is the only pass between Breck and Denver going that way. It certainly can get sketchy though I have yet to see them close it even in very considerable storms. VRBO is a good idea but the cheap housing gets snatched up quick so if you plan on going...
Jackson and Big Sky are going to be significantly more expensive to fly into. I know your said you were trying to go cheap but what kind of accommodations are you willing to take?   you could take the CME for $132 per person round trip and than stay at the Snowshoe motel for about $70 a night, it's not fancy but is clean and safe. There is a bus stop right in front and the bus system runs all over summit. No need for a rental car. Your still going to pay a lot for tickets...
I get that I have just never understood it. As far as the one chance to convert people I would argue that despite the lost the US-Belgium game did that. That was one of the most exciting games I have seen in terms of just straight up drama
   I have never understood why people claim that changing the low scores would change peoples perception of soccer. Hockey is low scoring too but that's never a complaint from people. The bigger issue is that people don't really understand why they will pass the ball around in the middle for 5 minutes before making a go at the goal. It's the lack of constant forward progress I think rather than low scoring goals people just can't accept the idea of passing backwards.
Last year I bought a couple season old pair of park skis. First day out on them I had no less than 3 people offer to buy them off me. So yes it's fine to buy new skis that are a couple seasons old  
So I have been debating getting a kayak and during my internet surfing I came across these:             They are single person rafts paddled like a kayak. They weigh only 5-7 pounds and pack to the size of a two person tent and are meant to be used for backpacking to access remote waters whether it be lakes or whitewater. Some even have zippers built into the flotation tubes so that you can store your gear there while rafting to reduce the risk of losing gear and...
  Haha NASA also does the same thing. I did a literature review on carbon-phenolic nozzle construction as part of a project and pretty much all the papers analyzing construction methods basically all ended with the same conclusion. "We have no idea how this method was arrived at but it's worked for 20 years so well just keep using it"
@ lonewolf210 The torque T is proportional to the width of the ski. The area moment of inertia J is proportional to the width squared. The angle of twist phi = (TL)/(JG). L is the distance from the fixed point to the deformed cross-section considered. G is the shear modulus, a property of the materials. Thus wider skis should deflect less than narrower skis for a given torsional load.   O that gave me flashbacks to the nightmare that was my deformations class. It's that...
So I was always pretty terrible at mechanical engineering but wouldn't a wider ski deflect more?   It would take more force to get the ski on edge to overcome the longer lever but once on edge the longer lever now applies more torque to the ski. I assume that is why the torsion bar goes all the way across the ski.    Like I said mechanical engineering is not my forte. 
And I thought we might make it a whole thread without stowe GNAR but I thought you had to be an expert just to see it anyways...
