The older I get the worse I think I ski.

Oh, So that's another reason why I cringe just thinkin' about Snowboarders.....

Skidding kills more snowflakes than Carving. Protect our flakes.

Gotta stoke the dreams, ya know. 

 

:beercheer:

 

Mine came home with As this quarter too.  I told him I'll spring him and his sister from school next Friday to drive up to Blue Knob for the EpicSki Mid Atlantic Gathering there.  We're staying with four other families in a ski in ski out house on the mountain right under the Rt 66 double chair next to the mid station.

 

Can't wait.  He's been to this event two years in a row now.  Lil sis hasn't been since 2009.

My boy came in 4th in his flight...AGAIN... in Slalom today.  Seems that he has a LOT of 4th place finishes.  He did win the team 13 points as his 1st run was 3rd fastest in his flight so that's something.  He's still enjoying the racing but he asked that we skip next weeks race so that we could "free ski" @ Snowshoe as he wants another crack at skiing down Cupp Run.  The last time we did it was last year and he was MAD at me and my brother for "making" him go all...the...WAY... down that "terrible" run.  The reality is that he was skiing well enough but just didn't want to run it......AFTER we had already gotten a good way into the run but there is no turning back on that 1.5 mile run unless you want to hike back up about 1/4 miles so...

 

Headed to the Snowshoe site to book a condo!

 

PS - Oh yea, I skied better this weekend now that I have had 2 trips on the new Nordica SL's (1st place in flight)
