  1. chalk this up to a bump I'm not going to read.
  2. I recognize the name, but probably just from the website. I don't think I've met him. Good luck!
  3. Who is your exxum guide? I trained with Newcomb Jr. back in the day. If you're studying under Newcomb, ask him how much Mt. Vinson set Marmot back.
  4. I think it took me like 20 years to gain the angulation that Stemik's 5y.o. is displaying in those shots. The smile, however, started just as young. Good on ya, stemik!
  5. not homonymns, but worthy of a headache- tough cough dough through plough
  6. Originally Posted By: Kingofmyrrh Wow, looks fantastic. Is that illegal section the face you mentioned before that has huge slides once every blue moon? That's it.

Basically, every run I have had in there (around a dozen or so) just ended up being a run of snow-management, just kicking off mini slabs and very few turns in the bottom tree section. It's not really worth the effort. If it ever gets a huge dump, those little rolly patches team up and rip out trees. I'm not
  7. First of all, thanks for the advice. Today rocked. New snow, sunshine, barely below freezing temps, no wind... just moving snow. The Ohayo shot... The Valley... (it is very rare that we can see it.) Some OB... (this place is always wind-loaded waiting to rip.) The Illegal Stuff... it got ridden by someone today. Not me. I'm quite sure Zao would ban me for skiing that on the busiest, sunniest, most avy-prone day of the year. Ironically, while on the oposite side of the mountain, I saw a life-flight chopper hovering above this peak and bowl. I don't know why. But
  8. the giants lost a home game and were pissed off??? And, I thought the premiership playing overseas was about ADDING an additional game to the original schedule... hence my misunderstanding as to why people are actually angry.
  9. snowdude wins. family... sun... snow... Can't we order that for delivery these days?
  10. now you hear me. (and how will you feel when waking up to a dumpling land on sunday?)
  11. So... okemo... deep or fast? I count my blessings, but one day a week is about as much as anyone could ask for. This weekend I must choose. And it's hard.
  12. I don't understand. Doesn't adding one (abroad) game to the season not hurt the fans? I'm not a fan, but when I hear guys on TV complain about it not being fair to the locals, I just don't get it. Guys were actually complaing about having to travel to see all the games. What am I missing? They're not losing any previously scheduled games.
  13. you're right- the puking is not guaranteed. I guess one fast day in the hand is better than a maybe-deep day in the pocket.
  14. Actually, I'll be riding trees on my goats first thing. the question is pure- fast or deep snow for your pow day in the trees?
  15. I could get the first runs of the day on courd and still get more virgin lines then you tomorrow. (I could even switch skis.) hence the debate, both days will be fresh. Where I ski is always fresh... always. Fast or deep, Stemik?
  16. I think so too. the speed wins too. But it will truly suck waking up on sunday and knowing I have to work. but saturday is sooner than sunday...
  17. FWIW, Herman Meier had the same injury from crashing his bike. He raced on the FIS World Tour the next season.
  18. Which do you prefer? I can pretty much only ride once a week this winter outside holidays. (Shut up about this weekend being a holiday.) And I can either ride Saturday or Sunday this week. Saturday will be sunny-- then it's going to puke. Sunday will be deep. Either day, I'll be on the same untouched, avi-safe lines... both days will be fresh. But the snow on Saturday will be faster than the snow on Sunday which will be blower. Saturday's snow will have had a day of settling and a cooling w/o wind (making it fast.) Hmmm....

Winner: Most sarcastic comment in thread. Prize: A mogul skiing holiday in Eastern Europe. My sarcasm sucks. I thought he said "fish". He's a pro racer and can keep up with me, so something's right.

  21. I'd rather have Obama than Clinton on the democratic end. But McCain will win. (That's my prediction anyway.) I would love to see Obama in office. But the "promise to remove troops in one year." is outrageous. How can we rebuild Iraq in one year? (assuming the street fight is over by the time he enters office.) It's one thing to say "I can end this war." and it's another to rebuild it. The rebuilding is why the Republicans predict so much more time in Iraq. McCain isn't pro-war, nobody is. He's pro-rebuilding. Where many on the democratic ticket are for leaving the rebuilding part t
