Both of us fell asleep on the start bus on the way home! We took a 2:45 Tram. The bowl was pretty nice.

Phil sorry we missed you. I'll be in the shop from 2PM on...

Awesome day!!
Skiing with you guys was fun, having Bob and Stephan with us was great. And yes, Blaze rips!
I've said it today many times, but despite the lack of fresh snow JH still dishes out some good skiing.

Phil - are those hYpercolor boots?
post #15 of 222
Here's my report: We got into the 49er today around 3 pm. Took our rookie western skier over to the Cowboy Bar. Had a Snake River OB-1 ale. Then walked to the Silver Dollar for a nice large Buffalo Brown Ale. Then had ribs at Bubbas. Back to the hotel to get sorted out for tomorrow. Had a little Irish whiskey and relaxed with the Man vs. Wild Marathon (still ongoing).

Tomorrow the 4 of us will go out and see who's got what. The other half of our group gets here tomorrow night.

I'll like to try and catch up with you folks Wed or Thurs. after we all sort out our own agenda here - (or after they all decide to ditch me).

Have fun!!

1- Are these ever-lasting gobstopper boots?

2- FYI- 146-110-136 skis on hardpack are a lot of work.....

3- Note to Sking Mag: you're right, you can't carve in Dalbello's..

4- Props to Nick over at Tetotn Village Ski for working everything out with my Icelantics!

5- The Bears Rock!

goggles all the time with a helmet, it should be an unwritten rule.

cool pictures looked spring like. I was going to ask about the big skis finndog. icelantics would work in pa right now but not in jackson hole.

OK, so if anyone is wondering why there's no pictures of Phil, truth be known he took a private yesterday, apprently, it didn't go so well, here's a picture of Phil just after the lesson, he was incessently chanting "tip and lift", I think he took took PMTS to the next level, "Practice More Tipping of Suds".... We took him home and he seems to be OK this AM.,....

Looks fun. I'm in a very busy work cycle right now, maybe through the gathering as well, I haven't been skiing much. I'm going to try and get out a bit today. I'll try and hook up with some of you on the hill.
