Well I'm sure there are many who will disagree, but clearly the Who Is The Ultimate Thread Killer was the 2006 thread of the year. Those of us who played there got to know each other a bit better, and some of us even met and skied. Too bad more folks didn't see it that way.

Last year I really appreciated Ryan. You never know what to expect from him. Sometimes he will ask you questions or tell you things that probe deep into your soul, and other times he will bust out with total silliness. But it's always good.

Site improvements? Has something changed?

5 - Most memorable Bear you've met: This is the most difficult for me to answer. There were three at the tip top of my list that I was eager to meet, and I was able to meet and ski with all three at ESA Stowe. Fox, you have become a great friend. Phil, where do I begin? Thatsagirl, I think you and I could cause some real damage if we were left alone. CharlieP You are so much fun.

6 - Most memorable new member: Baja, hands down a great contributor. CharlieP, hands down sense of humour.(Isn't that right Willie?)

7 - Best Epic Get together you attended(meet on the hill planning or Epic organized) I only made it to one, ESA Stowe, and it was awesome. Great combination of a learning experience and a social event.

8 - Best Epic Joke: I still like this one from my neck of the woods, from random humour http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=36297
and this one which was a practical joke played on Phil by Sno'more and Me.

9 - Best EpicSki Site improvement: The new look is awesome, with the beautiful home page. But, what I really love is the multi quote option!

10 -Bonus: Bear you most want to ski with in 2007: Cirque, Bob P, Lars, to name a few.(Wow this list could be sooooooo long)

11 - Best review: Maybe because this was so recent and included some skis I'm interested in trying. Volklgirl has put up a very thorough review here; http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=49430

You have no idea how much I thought about putting that up as the thread of the year. Flav also started one about a women he helped during the holidays, that was powerful, although not as much of a continuing saga.

If you can't open the link, then you need to become a supporter. Trust me, that thread alone is worth the price of admission!

Silly me, I became a supporter because I found ski value on the site.

Is this the "beautiful homepage"? I don't get it.

I don't mean to be offensive to anyone but all I see are two blues, some text, and a small photo.

Contrasted with 2007 web design it seems pretty generic...looks as if it would load quickly if you have dial-up, though.

Why not use one of the many great photos on this site as a background? Why not a Flash page?

I sound pretty grumpy, I guess...

11. Most unoriginal idea for a year review: A top 10 list.
12. Most misleading phrase: EpicSki website improvement. (For explanation see here.)

And what category would we put Paedde's (spelled wrong no doubt) epic powder journey and reports into?

I thought that would be in the "most envious poster you want to be" or
"how the hell do you do that" poster category. That series of posts kept me drooling for a long time last season.
