Isn't that ironic. I'd be a real hypocrite if I catalogued my gear here now wouldn't I?

Actually the correct question for you here would be; Which skis do you use at Alpine Meadows and which ones do you use at Kirkwood?

I think we like to know what people are skiing on to help give us a perspective on the mountain, conditions, gear, skier, etc.

sorry, I am just not a claimer.

I am tempted to tell you I have some old junk just to see the reactions.

my momma taught me "the proof's in the pudding"

No offense but....why did you start a thread about what your AREN'T going to post? Seems kind of pointless. If you don't want to talk about gear don't talk about gear.

Talking about not talking about gear is more odd than those of us that simply tell what we are skiing on instead of it being some big "secret".

I bet it's both!

Oh my, English is such a funny language, FRAU. Could it also be that thing you do on a nice motorboat in the ocean when you're looking for a big fish to catch?

The most important thing to me when buying those skis? - the numbers. Length, radius, price (if you're into powder, waist). Also, play with them a bit see how much they flex. The rest is going to make a very very minor diffence, if any at all.

How good a skier you must be if you can feel the diffence between Atomic SL and Fischer WC SC!! And for the record, a good skier could probably ski on two-by-fours.
jinx, you missed the main point of my post, the second paragraph where I say, "I'm not just talking about what's on your feet. It's the whole package".

You need to have the correct layers and type of layers to be able to survive and enjoy some of the conditions the most people would think twice about skiing in. I ski alot, they have to close the lifts to keep me off the hill.

It's all part of the adventure of skiing.

max cap

sure, but that's common sense, no? anyone who's been dressing him/herself for years should be able to handle that task without discussion and advice.
it's this 'latest and bestest' when it comes to equipment that drives me crazy. I went up the chairlift last week with a woman outfitted in a spyder jacket, atomic sl 11s and leki poles (didn't catch the boots)... (was i green with envy.. maybe a tinge : ) but then she gets of the chair and boots it down the slope in a tucked wedge so much for that... maybe if she hadn't been outfitted with the 'latest and greatest' she wouldn't have looked so ridiculous?

jinx

by the way, that's 'dying' not 'dieing'. is that on purpose?

vera and frau,

I was going to guess "garden gnome" but that's only because you're both more clever than me, but now that I get it, I am amused.

Pardon our "paranoia".

It has become an annual spring "rite of passage".

A predictable as that damned ground hog coming out of his hole.

TGR ... will conspire to send over a seemingly nice person. Mom & Apple Pie an innocent as Mary's lamb.

So ... we are bored with the early spring as they must be also.

And so starts the annual ... let's sneak over to Gapic and have a bit of fun.

welcome to Gapic

Welcome to the forum, dear. It's always great to see new members over here at Gapic who are eager to contribute.
As for cleverness well, my goodness you're modest.
Especially for a chick who hucks cornices and throws grabs in the stunt ditch :
Lots of us claimers (er, poseurs?) over here could use some tutelage.
