Hello, Long time lurker, I am an avid skier in the PA Poconos but ready to break out to the Bigger Mountains, I have been to hunter before (once) but most of the time ski Blue Mountain, Alpine Mountain, and Hidden Valley. I have tried to make the jump to Vermont, but work and life has been getting in the way. I decided to make the plunge this weekend by getting the Spring Pass to Killington, and plan to make a few trips to there before the season closes. I dont want to do what I did last year during the last day and blow out my ACL. I seem to think the snow will be better than the Poconos, because of the colder weather.
Some background on me, I feel I am about a 5/6/7 level skier, been doing it for 10 years, I started skiing with Special Olympics Delaware and still work with them on the Advanced team. I took the plunge and bough my first new ski the E88 (188 long), Love it and its nothing like my Race Stock ski a Fischer RC4 GS in a cheater size 187. My knee ortho told me to lose weight, so last year (around my knee ACLr) I went from 295 to 230! He told me that will help tons. It has helped me ski so much with the weight drop. I mostly ski groomers (hard pack with ice) Love skiing fast on them, but I haven't stepped up to moguls or powder. The powder feels funny to me like i'm not in control. Everybody tells me its just skiing balanced but nobody seems to give me the direction to go.
So with the intros out of the way anybody going to be there this weekend and ski with me? I was planning on going with a buddy who is an intermediate skier but he bailed on me tuesday so I am flying solo. Thanks Andrew
