New Ideas, Gadgets . . .

Wait! . . . Wait! . . . Wait a minute! Gadgets, cool Gadgets. That's what I'm looking for, any geek head skiers out there!?!

I mean . . . . the 2 liter bottles of coke, the thing you get from under there . . . "I just made you say underwear" . . . . like an extra pair of underwear, the extra pocket clutter and all the normal stuff is expected, and can be funny to read too, but what do you really have that is unusual, something that either fits the cool geek tech. category or the unusually funny category.

I like the Post by Posaune : Location: Bellingham, WA

I go light. I put a few things in my pocket:
lip balm, keys, wallet, tissues, Leatherman, helmet plugs, Motorola radio, cell phone, iPod, PDA, digital camera, power bar, power drink, collapsible binoculars, GPS unit on my wrist, extra goggles, extra sunglasses, sun block, transponder, probe, shovel, change of underwear, folding chair, tent, bug juice, sleeping pad and bag, wheelbarrow for the BS.




OK, even if it's just what you carry let me have it! . . . . . . Deer Valley, American Express, Don't leave home without it 'How Original'! Just about everybody knows that if you're skiing Deer Valley you'll be needing all of that and your first born to pay for the experience. Don't get me wrong I love to ski 'Deer Valley', here is a picture of me in the Triangle Trees: http://www.pcars.us/albums/6457

One of my favorite suggestions so far is the Cork Screw! A must have but where do you get the Bottle from? I would think that you would bring up a couple of bottles of select wine and dried food like crackers, and a Full Bowl (YES!), and on your first run find a hidden spot off piste in the trees and bury the back pack. Then through cell phone e-mail, at about 11:30 AM, send off the GPS coordinates to all of your buddies and then the first one who finds the spot opens the bottle of wine if they have a Cork Screw and a GPS unit. Just an idea that makes it tech. savvy fun.

Where are the Originators!?! The Trend Setters!?! BRING IT ON!

New toy this season: Garmin GPS Map 76CS. I just turn it on and slip it in my inside pocket and turn it off when I'm done. When I get home I download the tracks and relive the day. The Mapsource software lets you see your tracks and even overlays them on google earth. The track file is a souvenir.

That's about it, other than clothing skis, poles, boots and goggles.

Ghost : . . . . Now that's what I'm talkin about, This sounds really interesting. Can you post a picture of one of your Overlays in this thread. I would love to see it, and please give as much detailed information about what you did to put it together along with the mountain location and Stats. you skied when you did it.

Thanks,

I just click on the mpasource icon, then click on the upload from device button, plug my gps into the computer and presto the tracks are upladed. I don't know how to get the pictures from the mapsource to output to other programs. In truth, the google earth satellite resolution of Blue Mountain isn't all that good. I actually find it easier to look at their trail map and compare it to my gps tracks. It still makes for a good souviner.

I ski with a Camelbak most of the time. In there I'll have extra gloves and liners, a granola bar or two, and maybe some snack mix.
I'll always ski with a phone, a camera, chapstick, and some money. I haven't skiied with headphones yet, I'm too afraid of getting distracted and skiing right off the trail.
