Closed the Door on Another Season

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Spent yesterday putting all the equipment away for the long summer season.  I am lucky and have my own ski room. Sort of more emotional about this year as my years are getting long and wonder now and then about how many years I have left

Almost 40 years of collections, especially the clothes.  Bibs are some of my old racing days,  Penguin on the lower R is actually a hat that a Team from Great Falls Montana used to wear to the races my wife and I put on (International Firefighters Winter Games).

Glad I have Epic so when I sneak downstairs into my ski room in July, August and Sept. I can dream of powder next year and get some connection and stoke from Bears.

Nice room Pete.  Is it climate controlled too?

Worked for a family that built a weather controlled room in a new home.  They could make it a rain forest, desert or snow in there.  They lived in EAST TEXAS!  When they showed me that room knew that I wasn't getting paid enough.

Seriously, a nice room.  Good addition to a new home.

Love the ski room. Closing the door at the end of the season full of emotion I'm sure. The thing about it is skiing provides the motivation and desire to get ready for the next season. There will alwys be next season even though the past season might be the last season. Who knows , but skiing provides the stoke and enthusiasm to prepare and anticipate another coming year. I don't have anything else in my life that generates this same level of anticipation and enthusiasm for the comming season.

Stranger.  No climate control just in the basement.  Amazing how the temp stays almost alway 55 - 58 degrees.

Roundturns.  Yep, the only thing that ever rivaled the "new snow season" anticipation was 30 mallards coming into/maybe the dekes. Don't hunt anymore so the upcoming winter season is definitely #1 on my anticipation list.

Thanks Scott for offer.

I feel your pain. But think of me. When I closed the door on all my skis and boots and jackets and stuff, I said goodbye for at least 3 months, and probably more like 6, as I don't usually get up to my mountain place again until the lifts start turning (though a weekend in July if it's real hot in the city's not out of the question).

 

Hope they're all getting along up there, the chatty Salomons, the polyglot Elans, the dour, serious Volkls, my wife's fussy K2's, those Dynastar houseguests that never went home, the snobby Rossis with the AT bindings. Some tucked behind the bunkbeds, others propped up by the window. It was hard to leave them there.

Might have to sneak down to my Milan basement and visit my (contraband) Coombas. (They don't exist. Never seen them. I don't know what you're talking about).

I understand your problem.  When I hear Gore yakking about global warming I run downstairs and make sure my penguin hasn't escaped his cool abode.
