Pardon my ignorance, but what the heck is this?

The first trail of the year to open. One white trail is a sea of brown with too many people going too fast.

Opening days haha, some people can't keep themselves away from these things. Summer was just too long!! Sometimes its like a river of humanity thingy. IMO more deadly in the afternoon.

Noticed you're rocking 179 Bros.

What are they: soft, stiff?

Also, what's your binding set-up?


Gracias!

PS
Read the blog entry by Grant G. @ Skijournal and see that you were treated to the full spectrum of the Bro line...which was your preferential favorite?

Can you really consider Mt. Hood in October as ealy season? Wouldn't you call it late season or glacier skiing or something??

All I know is that reading the TGR post makes me:

1. want to buy a pair of the 179's even more, regardless if I really need them or not

2. want to go skiing. Now.

I am curious how the PM guys come to their lengths, though. I generally have a quiver that is in the 175-180 range, but a 185 would be appealing to me as a powder ski (the 188 just seems a bit too long and I'm not even gonna fool myself into getting on a 192).

They close down in September for annual maintenance and then reopen, so this counts (but nobody who runs a seasonal resort's marketing department will admit it. ) It's a "special case".

Is that pic from the testing of the new Bro fatties or are those normal Bros?

It's a combination of the new standard bros and the new fats.
