Posted by ski.gif safe

I am 21 years old, 6'3" 195 lbs. I used to be a very good skier as a child but i havent skied in 9 years due to basketball. But I recently moved to Avon, CO (beaver creek), and i am planning on skiing atleast 100 days this season. My skier level is only 2 but is very aggresive and charging. That was @ 12 years old so i expect even more so now. Probably leaning towards a 3 or advanced (comfortable down anything except extreme) by the end of the season. who knows

I will be skiing at Beaver Creek, A Basin, and Vail for the most part. Kirkwood for 3 days in X mas. 2 days @ jackson, 2 days @ Alta, and 2 days @ Ajax n Aspen Highlands.

I purchased a leftover set of 11/12 Line Blends. With some full tilt hot doggers. I love this set up for getting back to ski aggressively. but am afraid on deep powder i will not have as much fun as i could. Obviously not every day will be powder but i do live here now so i expect to ski atleast 20 pow days. Maybe im wrong, i dont know too much about powder. only what ive skied in stowe/smuggs "

The Line Blend is pretty good in powder.  I use it as a tele ski.

No offense here SS, but anyone can buy any ski they want to if they have money in their wallet or their card isn't maxed. Unsolicited advice... ok, here I go. The best one can give someone like yourself  who's in the middle of the learning curve, is to get a great fitting pair of boots, and buy two pairs of skis, max.  When that's sorted out, spend the extra $$$ on some lessons, as many days on the hill as possible, and travel to other places (international if you can) to give you some perspective. The travel thing can literally change your life and entire notion of what's possible both for yourself and in relation to your goals in skiing. What's going to happen to you this season is you're going to ski alot this winter, get a whole lot better and more knowledgeable, and feel incredibly silly about the stuff you've posted here. The most important part of this is you'll begin to have an inkling of how much you don't know just yet. That's not meant as an insult at all. Anyone I've ever known at the highest level of any sport will pretty much agree that while they know more than they did when they started (and much more than the average person), they're keenly aware of how much they don't know and that they've only begun to learn where to look for the answers. This is where breakthroughs happen. Some are personal, and others influence the entire sport including others' enjoyment of it all.

no duh, im m not retarded. i dont have money to blow. im 21 years old paying for myself to live in beaver creek. I dont even have an extra penny  to buy skis i will not use. 

 

 

Im not going to try to change your minds on a forum. I just want you to know im not some giant gaper hahaahah. i wouldnt call myself an expert now , but was a very good racer at 12 years old and could ski all of what stowe and cannon could offer as far as expert terrain. i should pick up on it fine. and most importantly i know how these skis will ski, thats why i bought them

Just once more for you since it was overlooked on round one.... "What's going to happen to you this season is you're going to ski alot this winter, get a whole lot better, more knowledgeable, and feel incredibly silly about the stuff you've posted here."

Good luck...seriously.

Part of the definition of a gaper is to profess not to be one.popcorn.gif

post #17 of 23

To be fair, he did post his picture in the thread that Pontoon McConks started last year

http://www.epicski.com/t/105235/quivers-for-upcoming-winter/90#post_1490084

And he's new..........so he probably hasn't had the opportunity to enjoy the thread started by VA back in 2006. 

 

That thread is Epic, eh?!

I need to get my quiver pic together.

I do. 

You're saying that you've embraced your gaperness and you encourage your fellow gapers to do the same. biggrin.gif
