Re: When skiing was beautiful, an art, an expression of self..

I was in a class with an Austrian instructor once when I was in my teens; he was very much the young buck instructor image. remember one line from him: " You should caress the snow as you would your mistress..." Or pretty damn close to that. True story. Great story! Is your buddy in this old Austri...

The Indy Ski Pass (and other fun multi-mtn passes)

Lots of big many-mountain passes out there, you can almost choose your flavor now. I have a midweek pass at my local hill which gives me 1/2 off at some other close mountains. I'm going to supplement it this year with the Indy Pass, cheap and at least three mountains I'll use it at. I hope it takes ...

Re: When skiing was beautiful, an art, an expression of self..

Great photos! So much wisdom and talent on this forum. My goals are modest. I am happy if I have a day of skiing without injury and get back to the car to have another day. I ski alone most of the time, so I don't know if I have grace and smoothness in my skiing. I do know if I am not centered and ...

I will see if I can get by with a Gamme, Falketind, and Tindan before I buy anymore skis.
This seems like a great minimalist quiver, actually. Everything is covered in terms of BC skiing.

Re: A bit of a quandary... Fischer Traverse or Excursion??

I have both skis in a 189cm. My vote is for the Excursion. I like the Excursion better for turning- easier turn initiation and more stable. I used to use the Traverse for going places with less weight, though I wish I had grabbed the 199 and I'm only 155lbs because with the rocker they glide short. ...

TelemarkEAST shutdown?

What gives? Anyone know the story? Not enough traffic?

Where am I going to get my sweet fix of Cardigan Mtn. hero shots and other such VT/NH/ME epicness? Not to mention Slackfest and Telemark Day status...

If there are any T-East lurkers looking for a new harbor, welcome!
