    Damn, sorry to see you don't have powder to ski in....put moth balls into the fuel of the mechanical monster that created this wasteland and stop this madness! Ed Abbey and Phil would...:wink:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    I'll be at either Timberline or Ski Bowl. I have a fusion pass. A group of my friends and I are staying in the Silcox Hut on Sunday to celebrate my birfday.

    My buddy Stihlrigg called for a morning groom session. He has the same old race ski - Volkl P40 GS 198cm - wonder if they still work?

    [​IMG]

    Mine are a mere 193 cm but yes, they still work perfectly!

    We railed all over the excellent lower mountain, the snow is still cold and fast.

    Rotary Ski Night.
    A beautiful night, much nicer and warmer than at home,
    even though home is 4,000 feet lower.
    Wierd weather these days.

    Good times, good friends...

    Last Saturday we couldn't take this inversion any longer and even though my knee is still sore we decided to go up to the sunshine. So I grabbed the camera and off we went to Teacup. Kind of a cheesy video but I thought I would share it anyway.
