      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

I had not seen that, looks like a cool project. I skied Geneva way back in the early 70's. I also remember skiing Arapahoe East when you could go for 25 cents a ride. And of course Berthoud was fun.

This is pretty cool also.

I really want to get on the Conquistador site but it's all on private land and I think they frown on trespassing.

Just paid for 5 days heli-skiing in Nakusp in February. Been there a couple of times and really like the lodge and terrain.

Got day one in on Sunday. Didn't suck, in fact it was pretty good early.

In the afternoon I got to sit coverage at the speed venue and watch the US, Canadian, Czech and a few other teams. Those boys and girls are insanely fast.

Taos has nothing, but Carl says hi to you and D'Ranger.

I hope to get down there at least once. Even if just to visit with Carl. 

Not much more up here. If it weren't for snowmaking it would be pretty bleak. Monarch did open but I haven't been down there yet.

Niseko in Hokkaido already has 2 metres of snow at the top of the mountain. Can’t wait for Feb. We are going to try Cat Skiing - poor man’s heli-skiing. Something I’ve not done before and unlikely to do again.

Bump,

When are you planning to be in Vail?  I'm planning at least 2 trips out there this season.

Been really busy but want to get up at least once - let's see if we can coordinate it.  Then you and CL can tell about how awesome all the runs I can't do are............................. which is ok, just happy to be there.

All it takes is snow! Which is in real short supply right now. Maybe February. That's about when I'll have time.

It is an ugly start to the season. It will get here. In the meantime Copper does a really good covering the front side of the mountain. Some years manmade is better than nothing.

Killington closed for the day today. Due to extreme wind chill and high winds. I never thought I’d see the day....

Most of the lifts were closed at Stowe, the triple was open and we got a few runs in.  I think we saw -10 air temp.  In the end the beer and fireplace in the lodge won out.
