Vermont 1/18-1/21

Im heading up to vermont to stay in a little airbnb in Randolph. Not the most convenient location, but good price and looks cozy. Have an epic pass (really regretting it this season, not supporting vail in the future) but that means 5 days I can use at stowe, never been there. And I also have an Ind...

Re: New skis are amazingly fun after day 1! New boots.... not so much. T1 too stiff for me?

I'll give them a shot with hammerheads on pin 2 or 3. Its definitely too stiff in the forward flex, the side to side edge control is fine, as it is with my old T2s.. I actually ski my T2 boots in walk mode, always have, and so that was my default going into the T1s and still found them aggressively ...

Re: Got a hernia at work... anyone have any experience skiing with one?

Well I got a consultation with a surgeon, he made the recovery seem like no big deal, said I can do basically whatever I want as soon as I feel up to it. Just no heavy lifting for 4 weeks. He was iffy on downhill skiing because he said it seems strenuous (fair). I didnt clarify XC, but he said runni...

Re: What do you carry in day packs? Backcountry XCd

Oh I forgot about this thread! The PLB beacon is great peace of mind. Seeing as how I tell friends where I'm going and no where too far out of rescues reach, I just wanted something to alert the Authorities when I was our of cell phone range. I didn't personally think the subscription for the Sat ph...

Got a hernia at work... anyone have any experience skiing with one?
