I tired that, once. Never again. I'll just stop, thank you. At least it was a warm day, and lycra dries quickly....

The note on treewells is a good point, somewhat covered as have a way out.

Reminds me of getting off my road bike to take a leak on the side of a mountain road. Wearing slippery cleats and plastic  soles, I clatter over to a steeply inclined dirt and rock shoulder, pull  the lycra out of the way, aim, and.....slip. I start sliding down the bank on my heels, my right hand occupied. I don't know what I'm more concerned about, spraying all over myself or tumbling into a sharp rock. I further lose my balance and tumble quite a ways down and end up pinned against a tree.

Women I ski with are about as proficient as guys, but are more attentive to location affording some privacy. When you see a woman skiing slowly through dense forest, looking around for a place to stop, turn the other direction so she doesn't have to keep retreating deeper into the woods

Wow, nice resurection of the thread.

I have to disagree on this, leaving the yellow is just saying " I was here"  Isn't it better to leave it prominently diplayed (BTW- drinking accelerade and vitamins can lead to very brightly colored "displays"..) than to barely cover it up and have you some how come into contact?

I make a deep hole with my pole and aim carefully. You won't see that yellow snow until spring.

I don't have the manners of MastersRacer.  I write my name in the snow.

I got into a conversation with an older woman a few years ago about skiing in WP and lack of facilities 50 years ago. She told me about trying to pee in the woods. She kept her wooden, edgeless skis on and soon found herself sliding backwards down the hill with her pants around her ankles. She found out later that a guy broke his leg skiing into a tree while watching her ski backwards down the hill. She recovered without injury and got a chance to listen to the stories about her bare assed backward skiing (anonymously) in the lodge later than evening. I was laughing so hard I was tearing up and, since then, peed in the BR, only, in her honor

I saw this guy taking a pee on the side of the trail. As a concession to modesty he was standing behind 4 feet of scrawny tree top. I was skiing nearby so I said: Your going to need a bigger tree!  He took it as a compliment and smiled agreement.

Take a four foot long section of Tygon brand plastic lab tubing and a small torch.  Heat the Tygon and expand it by using a clothes pin or banana or an egg-plant ... or what ever is closest to your ..... member or something like it.

Then just snap it on in the morning like any type of glove with the end trailing out behind your boot.  You never have to stop on a trail or even on a lift.  You can get creative and make growling sounds like a dog peeing on a hydrant and stuff.

Works for me.  Just make sure in real cold weather you route the tube down the inside of your long-johns instead of outside.  This can be critical cause the tube can freeze and back up.

so that's been you hangin' around the cucumbers.

And who around here needs the extension?

someone had to say it!





the other day the top of Sades looked like the back yard at the Madison Avenue Dog Show. Someone's not reading up on technique.
