Community Announcement: I've just been skiing...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
OK, so it was at an indoor slope, and OK, so it was filmed for the Extreme Sports TV network, as there was a competition going on at the same time.
BUT...
1. I was skiing.
2. It all clicked into place. (I mean, for me, I was skiing well)
3.
4. It was free, as were the 4 drink vouchers I got.
5.
6. OK, not quite free - $90 in gas to get there and back.
7. Did I mention that I was skiing?

OK, now you can get back to talking about whatever...

Sweet! You're going to have to do a capture when it airs. Did they get you in the half-pipe?

And it was good. That is Timberline,Or. Knee deep powder,light winds,30+" base and snowing. Small crowd of entheastic people. First few runs felt right but something was missing. We were making 8 minute laps and around the 10th one everything fell together. By 11AM there was 4" of new on the groom. Around 1:30PM we were starting to feel the effects of 5 months of no skiing and called it a day. Does it Snow at those indoor resorts WTFH?

Well no matter how steep your vertical, you've still got one more day under your belt this season than I do Fox!

I'd guess about 20/25m i.e. about 60-75ft

Did you use pmts, psia, basi or scotch?

Fox,maybe just a trick of the camera, but how is the lift arranged. It looks as though the skiers are being pulled backwards (?) up the hill?? Is this true or is the pic just a bit fuzzy and fooling me on my screen?
post #18 of 22
Looks like a Pomalift thingy. Riding that up backwards could be exciting, even painful.

Yeah, two pomas - one either side, so you have a little disk between your thighs. I dodn't think anyone was facing backwards, but there were quite a few looking back down as people slid the rails.
