WoopsOh hey, look at that, this was supposed to be my first post. Oops!
I'm from Philly, now living in NYC. Learned, then taught, in the Poconos since I was a little tyke. I never did get past PSIA I, but it's been 10 years since *I've* had a lesson and I definitely want one. I just got back from a trip to SLC–where a friend got shipped out for work–and it kicked my butt; now I can't wait for next season to get whupped again!
Thanks to the Barking Bear Forums I just got my first pair of "real" skis from milehighathletic: K2 Apache Recons. Can't wait to try them out; in the meantime I can only drool over them as they serve that all-important purpose of keeping me motivated to stay in shape!
I'm glad to find these forums as a place to geek out about skiing and try and get better at it, too. Many thanks to all the users and moderators! :
