Wow! So its January 8th, raining hard here in southern Vermont, its nearly 50 degrees . . . supposed to get back up into the high 50's to 60's next week. Guess I got over my ski addiction with perfect timing! 150+ days a year of getting paid to ski the Rockies for 15 years have left me with great memories, but New England is NOT the place to be with such an addiction, and thankfully I'm over it!
Take care folks, hope winter treats you all well!
Howdy folks --
These threads tend to get ignored after a while, but we'll see if anyone still reads this thread.
I've been lookin' for a good ski forum, and so far this one looks great, serious discussion, friendly people, an active user base.
I'm currently living in Dover, Delaware, surrounded by our famous mountains. (I know you're all jealous). I learned to ski at about age three, and I've skied everywhere from tiny PA hills to the rockies, and alps (for all you rockies kids who pine for the alps, the rockies win).
In high school I taught at one of those tiny PA hills, Blue Marsh (you can tell the quality of a hill named after a swamp). I was a PSIA level I and miss teaching desperately.
Last few years have been pretty pitiful on the ski day count front, but this year I've pushed it so that I've had two trips out west and I'm looking for at least one more.
Lifetime goal to ski on all 7 continents and in the next year or two I'd like to get into some ski mountaineering.
Dave, check out the gear discussion forum and look up the Marker Duke. You'll find the first beta on the new equipment here; how you use the power is up to you.
Got a beacon, shovel, probe and avy I?
