Alex, who are you trying to kid that the reason you carry a flask of cognac in your back pack is for the comfort and welfare of your fellow skiers.. you hypocrite! Besides, with the pathetic limited skiing you got to offer in Heavenly.. there's nothing else to do but drink and gamble in heavenly..!

While I am one of those who carry a small flask of cognac in my backpack (my reason is to make sure nobody I know gets cold), I despise those who show up on the mountain drunk, mostly at Heavenly - one of the reasons I don't ski there anymore: not safe when they show up drunk after a sleepless night in casino : : . Skiing is not bad enough that you have to drown yourself in alcohol, is it?
</font>[/quote]You know what? I admire your destructive passion. But that flask actually does last me a full season. And why come to a ski resort at all if all you can do there is drink and gamble? Stay in the hotel! You can get a lot more booze there!
I drink when I want to drink, and I ski when I want to ski. I never had a simultaneous urge to do both at the same time: I have 2 kids to raise through college before I kill myself - or somebody else.
EDIT: Actually, I have never been to a resort in CA or NV where a person over 21 wouldn't be able to get a beer, right at the lodge... You can even get really juiced if you insist. I guess I am missing the times when I could drink as much as I wanted without worrying about not-yet-existing kids, or not-yet-existing wife, or driving for 6-7 hours in a snow storm afterwards...[ April 07, 2003, 05:36 PM: Message edited by: AlexG ]
