Loveland Pass is CLOSED! Woo-hoo! There's snow in them thar hills! I'm pysched for the ski season. Last year sucked for snow and I had to cut it even shorter because of a large work project. I'm hoping we get hammered with snow this year and I'll be able to get up for some mid-week, all day powder sessions on the board o<8-) Yep, I'm a former two-planker turned full time knuckledragger. Life is good, pray for snow.
Wahhhh... I hate winters in the east.Spinchick

I really, really hate falling down and being cold and wet. I may not ski beautifully but at least I'm in control and don't have to worry about falling unless some Neanderthal knuckledragger cuts my line :P Unfortunately my skiing budget this season will be drastically curtailed by my bike budget. I'd like to get new equipment rather than the crappy old '80s stuff I've been using, but it's just not in the cards right now.

My ultimate goal is to learn to tele ski. The coolest thing I ever saw on the slopes was a pair of tele skiiers coming in the main run at Keystone late in the day after obviously having been up in the backcountry for God only knows how long. They looked like something straight out of another century; both used the single long outrigger pole old-school style, and both of them were so controlled and elegant, they made the rest of us day hacks look like cockroaches scrambling from the kitchen light.

Knucledragger for about 10 years now. Never became a good enough skier to flow like I do on a board. Last year Mt. Hood had about a 250" base. Here's to hoping it's another great year.
