Same for Tremblant where all the money goes to Intrawest  and I don't know what they do with it but I'm sure, they don't invest it for the mountain...

As for Jay, I wasn't sure first concerning the Pump House... but I think they still have the mountain  in priority...

you can stop worrying, she told me she liked you ...especially when you ride her on your Line Prophet 90...

With skiing when you lose control you can self arrest. With sex you pass a point of no return.

But with a happier ending.

As long as there aren't commitment issues directly between me and the mountain, then it's still better. rolleyes.gif

I have never had a bad fall during sex, on the other hand ski equipment is not self lubricating. I guess you have the option of waxing your bottom in either case. I can generally ski any slope but would be wary of a female that was advertised as caution, experts only.

Skiing the same hill can get boring but I never get in trouble  in I ski another slope. I imagine I will stick with both as long as my three knees hold out, but always remember stay in control, don't attempt to go beyond your ability and if you are going into unknown territory it is best to consult someone who has been there before.

Both have the potential for serious head injuries...

Some are adjustable to accomodate the longer sole length.

In both, it's not the size of the stick, it's the skill of the operator.

Sometimes I think a lot of skiers are compensating for something.

The groomers are nice and smooth, just don't eat the yellow snow. I like wide open bowls, and prefer to stay away from the trees. I have a season's pass, but I hate the monthly blackout days. ;)

 

Hey wait, where's the pole.. I mean poll, in this thread?

post #49 of 65

I, too tend to prefer well groomed to all natural eek.gif conditions..

So what do we call a skier with really sharp edges??? A masochist?

 

And people who always try to be faster? premature ...?

 

I really like moguls...what does it say about me?

Sometimes the mountain opens new terrain...all free with your season pass. This is why the mid-mountain lodge serves drinks.

Yeah, it's like the mountain has been ribbed for our pleasure and contoured for extra stimulation.

I never use a ski bag. I wonder if this thread should be combined with " how many days you got" thread.

SOME skiers like to go Switch.

It's hard not to bust out laughing reading this thread--shouldn't have opened it in a meeting yesterday.

 

And everytime I see this: ROTF.gif

I just smile.

post #60 of 65

Two additional thoughts. I can go without skiing for 8 months or so and not climb a tower with a deer rifle, also I really don't mind skiing alone.
