A young man and his new pair of pistols

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Evan busted his Pocket Rockets in the midst of our holiday ski trip. As his dad views skiing as a necessity, he felt sorry for the kid who was left rocketing at 50+ mph on his old rock skis (Olin Selkirks). So.... he fronted the money for Evan to acquire a new pair of Pistols. (He better get a decent paying job this summer!!!



BTW, if anyone has any leads on a good paying job for Evan this summer, either near Boulder or Ann Arbor, please reply below

P.S. I hope I don't get any s**t from Alta Skier about this. Those Pistols are softer than the Pocket Rockets!

Big points Dad, those holiday emergency purchases are the ones we remember for life. My dad had to do the same thing in the early 70's , I can still remember everything about that night.

I'm curious. How did your son bust his PRs?

On the outrun from the Cirque at Solitude (at his normal high speed) he hit an unseen (deep) depression (flat light) and the tail bent up badly at the binding heel screws. (An interesting note - the head of one of the screws poppped off but his Freeride bindings still survived unscathed).

BTW, Peace and Powder to everyone for the New Year. We've been skiing for the past week here in the Wasatch with feet (as opposed to inches) of snow each day. Today was a slow day with only a few inches of new snow. Tomorrow it sounds like it might be back to new snow measuresment in feet.
