First. Buying gear shouldn't qualify for a Bucket List. A Bucket List if for something you want to do before you die not something you buy. Saving your money to spend before you die is like betting on 12 three times in a row on the crap table. Can't predict your death. So Do It while you can.
Since I am an old fart and on the downside of life, started on my Bucket list when I turned 60.
Ski Chile - did it Portillo in August
Ski in BC - started Fernie, Whitewater, Red (still more to do)
Ski JH - Did at Gathering this year
Ski in the Snowy Mt. Australia - did it
Learn how to powder ski - working on it
Still on List to Do:
Ski Tasman Glacier in NZ
Cat ski in BC
Ski Big Sky (in 2 weeks at ESA)
Be good enough Powder Skier to go Heli Skiing
Ski Revelstoke and Kicking Horse (next year)
Attend ESA at Stowe
Keep up with ski bud Van in Powder
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: SKI WITH TREKCHICK AT BIG SKY
