I'm glad that some dentist from Connecticut has a place to go to debate the merits of the Expedition vs. the Canyonero, or whether you should get the X-Scream or the Axis-X to cruise the groomers at Okemo, plus the endless PMTS vs. PSIA debate. But that doesn't interest me. Hopefully you're just as glad that a bunch of hardcore skiing dirtbags (who take that word as a compliment) have somewhere to go to discuss the latest models of the LS-9000, twin-tipped fat skis, and which resorts let you camp out overnight in the parking lot.
oh bens, please... your accuracy is painful!
BWAAAAH HAH HAH HAH HAH HAH
class warfare once again, eh bens? tell me, if I hide your daddy's credit card under the soap, will you be mad? c'mon ya little trustafarian! all these "dirtbags" who have a fat little trust fund to fall back on are no more the "soul" of skiing than are the ridiculous fat middle-aged orthodontist who drives to Squallywood in his Humvee, pulls out his Pilot 10s and pulls on his Bogner, sucks in his belly to zip up the Bogner (gawd bless that built-in girdle!), whistles some lame 70s disco as he trudges to the first chair, winks at the female liftie with a bizarre grin barely masking a leer, and rides the chair to the top of _______ (name your sketchiest fave) to pose atop as if ready to drop in at the drop of an owl's furball.
it's not all so black-and-white, bens
I am always looking for areas that will let me sleep in my rig in their parking lot
I commit myself to skiing with no hestitation, from Thanksgiving until mid-April. I don't give a rat's about "resorts" and the place "to be seen." I love skiing for its own sake.
and I'm not unlike most of the regulars in here.
ps if you want to know what drives me to ski, check with the PouterPhotogs who visited Lost Trail about 6 weeks ago. They took some pix of Monica Thomas. I ski with Monica when she's not teaching. She & I share a coach, who at 63 could out-ski a sizeable chunk of the Pouters.
back back back, dimestore che guevara!
