EpicSki Skier Size Database - Page 4

post #91 of 98
^^^ About my third year on skis, I was riding Chair 1 at Taos and saw a guy hit a tree skier's left of Al's run. I learned later that he died. It hadn't snowed in a while, so the bumps were pretty icy. The episode had a take home lesson for me: Of the three conditions that I observed from the chair 1) steep run 2) trees and 3) ice, I resolved that any two of those three could be acceptable. But if all three coexist, I should find somewhere else to spend my time.

I should be very neutral in this ( no reason to be otherwise) , but the western snow is generally easy and safe to ski. Why should we say otherwise or consider this a drawback. In fact this is why people buy lift tickets - to have fun and be safe. And I wouldn't recommend many eastern trails for safety particularly after a midwinter rain followed by a massive temperature drop.

I agree.  I suspect it was a reaction to the over-use of the term, but I don't think you should have to ski like Dharon or Reilly to be an expert.

Two questions:

1) Do you want the levels of our Epic personas, or our actual levels?

2) If my avatar levels up to a 10, does Epic offer an expansion pack?

I have experienced your so call coastal maritime concrete in the mid section of Exterminator.

That stuff have the same texture and consistency as the 5,000 psi concrete we usually pour for NYC public school buildings foundations just before we hit it with a vibrator.

That stuff makes the northeastern boiler plate look good. :eek:D

Ah yes, that was fun. I was so tired after that, my legs were rubber and I was glad we stopped for lunch. It was an unusual day, fresh snow followed by some pretty warm weather in the sun.
