Happy Birthday. Hope you get another new pair of Fischer skis or such others.

Happy birthday. Did you start telemarking yet? Remember, if you don't do it this year, you'll be a year older when you do! Also remember, it's never too late

No worries if you haven't made use of the boots I sent you, I still haven't used the skis Phil sent me, but this year I will... Don't worry about them being too stiff, I use the exact same boot. You're a big guy and they will soften a bit around the bellows...

Anyway, I wish you many more years of deep snow and steep lines however you choose to ski them.

50's not easy to cope with.

I hope you do a better job than I.

Have a nice day

Hello to all my friends and Kindred Spirits at Epic.

Skiing the slopes helps me stay young at heart, and sharing my passion at Epic helps to maintain the motivation for an active life.

Many thanks to you all!

Cheers,

Michael

Isn't 50 the new 40? Or is it the new 30? It's all good! Happy b-day!

Happy birthday Michael. I noticed something striking in your signature:

Dad's quiver: Fischer Worldcup RC (Rossignol Race 140 bindings), Dynastar Intuitive 74 (Look P12), Volant Spatula (Marker Titanium);

Now may the coming season bless you with ample opportunities to put those fatties to their intended use.

Hello again everyone,

Well I passed a milestone with a minimum of apprehension. Actually, I plan on doing things at this stage of my life that have not been possible before; including much more skiing and exercise. I need to make up for lost time!

Thanks to trekchick, she brings great advice & a feminine point of view to Epic on a regular basis. "Chicks with Quivers" deserves to be a classic!

Also thanks to SugarCube, Phil & Steve; Yes, Phil I should buy something (I think you are contributing to my delinquency)!

And as VA said, Lets all find the conditions required to put those fatties to work! May every day be a powder day, unless your racing of course.

And also thanks to my wife of more than 20 years. She tolerates my one vice very well. Listed below is my advice for a owning a quiver.

1) When received....place the new skis in a location where the wife never goes.
2) Stand back to admire, sigh, drool, and imagine your first turn, then turn off the light and lock the door.
3) Buy your wife flowers in anticipation. She will find out and you will be in trouble.
4) When the wife is gone for a few hours, place them carefully on the carpet, get into your boots and click-in
5) Put a Warren Miller flick on mute and quickly hide everything when a car pulls up.
6) If caught, take your wife to dinner and promise to sell some of the older skis "for a profit".
7) Take your new babies to a new safe place, before the spouse tries to burn them.
Now go wait in your living room staring out the window until snow falls, and hope you live that long.
9) When snow falls and you make your first turns, take a timeout to thank all your buddies at Epic & Realskiers!

Cheers,

Michael
