    Las Lenas 8/5/2006 - 8/19/2006

    Just got back from las lenas. Epic. 5 Days of Marte in 2 weeks. The day I got there was a storm day, with pretty much just the front pomas open. A bit dissapointing. I wake up the next morning to a perfect blue bird day. Waist deep powder, sunny, and no wind. The first half of the day I...

    Whitetail PA 1/7/06

    Just came back from a day trip to whitetail. The green was a tad icy, the blues were fun with heavy manmade "powder" and some bumps developing later in the day. The blacks - bold decision was defenitly the best snow on the mountain with very few ice spots early in the day and slightly lighter...

    Wintergreen VA 11/26-27

    Early Sat morning, conditions started out great. Nice and cold weather made for some good fluffy man made snow. They only had one slope open (green - upper/lower dobie), not sure why they didn't open eagle, but starting this early this far south was a blast. They had nice mounds even after...

    line chronics

    I'm an advanced skier. I can pretty much carve everything, and handle most slopes on the east. Well after a season of using K2 Escape 5500s (they were $80 with bindings on ebay, I don't really feel bad about only getting one season out of them). I'm thinking about getting line chronics. The...

    As far as conditions at wintergreen go, pretty good! The first day there was very minimal ice, and since I was skiing with a freind that has a house their, we had a card to skip the liftlines, however by mid day they did get a bit long. The first day there were also alotta nice "bumps" to...

    rust

    I just noticed the edges on my skis are just barely starting to rust. Other than that the skis show pretty much no wear, a few small scatched in the bases, but nothing that noticably affects performance. Anyways, is this anything to worry about, or is their anything I can do to fix it?

    Whitetail, PA: 1/16/05

    Just got back from a day trip to whitetail. The conditions were surprisingly good given they've only had a couple days of snowmaking to start from scratch. All the greens were open (didn't go on any of them), a few blues, and one black. The blues and black were really nice and bumpy by 11ish...

    best ski resort within 5 hours of washington dc

    What do you guys think is the best ski resort within 5 hours of washington dc? My criteria is good slopes (realitvly difficult) and smallish lift lines. Something relativly inexpensive would be good too, as I'm going to be skiing every second I get so I don't really care that much about...

    I'm 5' 7, 16, and 130 lbs. I went to the local ski shop which recommended k2 escape 5500 and volkl energy 380. I'm looking for something that will mostly be used on the east coast, but won't kill my dreams of getting out west sometime within the next few years. Also I'm looking for something...
