Or is that "bindings"? I started a new thread because the only categories this fit into were a little old. I just wanted to share our experiences so far since getting to NID in December. 1st of all, we love it and have only touched the surface but have taken a good look below the surface. Now, to skiing. We bought season passes to Silver because of it's proximity to Cda with the intention of trying the other "local" areas during the season. The toils of moving have had more impact than expected and not having skied for 2 (3 in my wife's case) seasons has taken their toll. As much as I hate to admit it, age might be a factor as well. We've skied Silver 7 days not counting the day the gondola was closed. Our new plan is to learn as much as we can about Silver and maybe ski Lookout and Schweitzer at least once before the season is over but we don't want to do the latter until our ski legs can make the most of it. I've been looking at the other INW threads and have some snow comments about Silver. We have had every possible condition in those 7 days. Yesterday it was raining up to just below the top of the gondola then there was heavy snow which lasted for a while. Surface conditions went from silky smooth to snow boulders and the upper parts were generally better than the lower. Trouble with my bindings exacerbated the difficulty. On 2/10 we had a great day in the powder and continuous snow with no eqpt. problems. I also saw the positive comments about the ski shack and would like to get more feedback on them. Lastly, I want to buy some used or demo skis and need advice on where to go. I'll be looking for recent vintage, all mountain, light weight. Thanks for reading.
