Train Wreck?

Here at Cass, they have a full resto shop, for your wrecked train! I couple shots I took earlier this summer.....

And I thought Bears weren't into trains!

See I hate to see those old beautiful machines allowed to rust and rot.....perhaps more so than skiing without a full-face helmet.

Sure, on page 5 i predict we can drift back on topic. the reference abouve to stkicky bunns made me think what do you eat for breakfast before you go skiing?

What was the topic anyways??? usually a blueberry pop tart.

Stenmark starting going through them first. Watch some of the later Stenmark video, he broke almost every bamboo pole on the way down.

You're correct, but didn't Stenmarm focus on GS? And, he hit themiwith his shoulder and arm. I thought Tomba did it in SL. Busting a bamboo pole at SL speed changed your velocity a lot more adversely than clipping one at GS speed. With Rapidgates, all he needed to do was get the boot around the base.

Why did we need to redirect that a train that was derailed from the start????

P.S. I am wearing my helmet while typing this. Safety first.

Would that be a full-face helmet?

I forecast a return to knit beanies with safety tassels.

Poms, Cirque. Big, fluffy, pastel POMS. No, they're not from down undah.

Nacho cheese Doritos. But too hard to snarf while wearing a full face helmet.

No I can't see the keys with a full face helmet.

But I am wearing a mouth piece to prevent tounge biting when laughing.

RR, That train is in line to be restored. I don't know why they don't pull the weeds out of it. I imagine 'historical preservation' associations work mainly on grants and donations.

I was in the Shays #2, snapping my digital camera as fast as it would allow. Most of the pics came out blurred.

There is a line of perhaps 10 engines waiting to be restored. It is a very long process! I believe the wait time is seven years! Some of the engines have been brought in from neighboring states for resto.

Tomba was skiing during the Break-Away gate age, I'd say Marc Girardelli pioneered the J Turn which was skiing an extremely straight line at the gate and then 'hooking' the skis around the gate while your body passed straight over the gate.

Stenmark was a 'skills event' skier, he DOMINATED GS and SL, to the point that he was unbeatable in the Overall World Cup. It got to the point that the FIS actually created an event, Super G, to give speed skiers a chance against him... he still won till the Mahre's came along.

Whiteroom i hate when that happens to me.......


i've killed plenty of thread in my time but killing ur own thread is kindo like eating your young so i wanted to help u out.


I love groomer machines. I think every mountain should groome every square inch of terrain. need to buy stock in bomb bard iay, i love to pronounce bombardier and do so every chance i gets, before this grooming catches on i think this grooming thing is a real money maker. Mtn mgmt should continyously groom teh snow so it is smooth smooth smooth.

I already took the bait once in this glorious thread, might as well do it again:
I only get to ski powder once or twice per decade, and operate primarily on frozen granular. Will gladly ski corduroy too. Usually make do in between new snows with used stuff scraped to trail edge. Problem is I support family of five and there aren't enough scraps for the rest, so it adds up to a bunch of frustrated skier/consumers.
Given assocated transportation, lodging, dining, and misc travel expenses snorkling through deep pow is expensive any way I look at it, but it beats carving ice all winter and we all need something to dream about.
