Thank you for the compliment...It's a little intimidationg to chat with skiiers over twice my age and maybe twice my ability (nah!) hope you had a nice holiday!

Planning our next trip for 2002 to include Big Mountain, Fernie, Panorama, Kicking Horse and Jasper. Costs us too much to ski in the US, but would love be able to afford to venture below the border one day. Going to Big Mountain in Montana next time will be the total of our US visit.
post #88 of 151
Oh, alright -here's my little bits before this thread gets full

Just turned 44 years of age - 40 years of which have had time on the slopes.
Married with two kids - wife and kids all ski.
Skis: Volkl G31's - 193cm w/Tyrolia PS 9 Racing bindings; Dynastar G9 w/race plate & Marker 8.1 bindings - 195cm
Boots: Salomon ?something? 9 racing; Rossignol K1 (I think)
poles: Scotts and a pair of Allsop Shocks (anyone remember those?)
height: 5' - 11"
weight: about 10 lbs more than it should be

Spent all my life in either Chicago or Minnesota, but have been making regular trips to the Rockies since I was 6 years old. Everyone else in MN has a lake cabin, we opted for the condo at Copper Mtn. Of the 30 or so in my extended family and In-laws, only two sisters-in-law don't ski regularly, and one niece, but she's only 3.

To Ski or Not To Ski...

What a stupid question!

Hi from Brisbane, Australia

5'5, 130lbs

Equipment - Rossi Bandit X (170's), Tyrolia SL110 Cyber bindings, Dalbello NX99 boots.

I ski Perisher and Falls Creek here in Australia, and Canada and Colorado when I can swing it.

Hometown is London Ontario, But I spend most of my time in Guelph now (because of school)
