Got new skis today July lst and it is 100 Degrees

UPS delivered these this morning.

 

All I have to do is wait 6 months, maybe 5 1/2 to use them here:

 

   Lower Terrible Ediths at Silver Mt., Kellogg Idaho

New skis make every day like Christmas.  To bad I don't need more skis.

Sweet!

 

I stopped into a ski store in Burlington VT and ended up walking out with a Patagonia ski jacket. I didn't know that I needed it but there it was...

 

I assume you did some shopping online for those Pete, any good deals out there?

A guy like you can probably feel that kind of heat in your Bones :D

Not real good.  Bought from Dawgcatching, pretty good price.  Wanted to get the 2016's before the season when I knew that at least initially they would be full retail almost.

Very nice. Fondling our skis gets us through the useless months.

Nice skis.

 

Went to our storage unit yesterday to drop some stuff off and pick up the a/c units.  I had to take my skis out of the bag and have a few moments with them.  Even took a picture or two.  I bought another pair of skis in May which are still at home and possibly need to have the bindings remounted so I grabbed my boots from storage so I could do this during the summer and have something skiing related to do during the summer months.  My man was kinda rolling his eyes a little bit but humored me, he's a good sport

^^^This.  I always try to schedule some home binding work for August/September. Got a  little ahead of myself this year - pre-season ski order arrived faster than expected, so the temptation of jumping right on it is keeping me up at night.  I see it as Father Time's hot, stinky breath on the back of my neck ……..

Aug/Sep is peak riding weather; this is more peak swimming weather and swimming doesn't take as long...might have to stock the downstairs with some tuning rose.

YES, I can relate totally.  I have my own ski room downsstairs:

AND, I go down now and then in July and August to make sure everyone is ok. Yes, the wife (43yrs) smiles and shakes her head but she understands too.

 

Hi Mike, drove down from the Hiawatha 2 days ago and the Power Line run is looking good for us this year - god willing.
