    SKIING Magazine, R.I.P

    I now have an IPAD and love it. No need for print media anymore.... I do remember the excitement of getting the September issue of SKI and the equipment guide in the good old days. Those Olin Mark IV's always looked so cool in print. Oh yah, and Suzi Chapstick, too. Man, I am frickin old...

    Snow Snorkels for New Jersey this winter?

    Tony, Sorry for confusing the 7s with s7. It's comparing a yard stick to a surf board. I once had a pair of the 7s in a 203cm with MRRs. The s7 was ripping on the groomers and hardpack too. Truely a real ego-boosting ski. I agree that I had good luck this year. I was in Colorado...

    Snow Snorkels for New Jersey this winter?

    I am so glad that the thread I started in October is still living... also, that the Accuweather prediction I posted was right on.... I made it out West three times this winter and had epic conditions every time. We got into Jackson Hole in early February just after a week-long dump of 5'. I...

    New storm on the way

    I spent 6 hours today plowing the 18" of snow that fell on my farm in NJ. :-k

    New storm on the way

    Blue will get the most snow out of this storm. No tree skiing in the Poconos. Go off the trail and they'll kick you out. =; BTW: Just got back from JHWY. Great snow and skied the Rossi S-7 (188cm) for the whole time. "Greatest ski I've ever skied on! And I've skied them all!!" (to...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    Sorry I started all this feuding :stir: In my situation I always travel alone, except for this week when we leave for JHWY tomorrow, my wife is coming so she can see her family who live in JH full time. Otherwise, I get "ski credits" during the rest of the year watching the kids while my...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    I find better value going out West. It's not hat much more expensive and the skiing in usually better. I don't like to drive long distances. When I go out West, I just pack my boots and avy gear and I demo skis suitable for the conditions. I meet a lot of other New York area skier who are...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    I should have been clearer.... I will not travel more than 6 hours by car to ski. So, Jay and Stowe are not in my radar. More than 6 hours, and I'm on a plane to SLC and staying in Sandy or Midvale for $78 a night and taking the bus up to Alta. The POW at Stowe looks great though =D> ... I...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    This weekends storm system dumped 10" on the Jersey Shore and another system coming through the East on Weds will do the same. What a waste of snow!! ](*,) I haven't been up to New Engand all winter and suspect I won't until this pattern changes, if ever. How will the thin base survive...

    2009-2010 Jackson Hole Snow Reports

    I've been out there once or twice every year for the past 10 years to ski and visit family-in-laws. I have had my best skiing in February and March and have been powderless on every excursion in January. Might be my luck, but I have had good powder days out at JH, Teton Pass and Targhee...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    I was being a bit of a smart a$$, but in all honesty, at a resort like Jackson Hole (and the Bird) the best way to fully access the terrain is by getting on the Tram. At JH, it opens up a vast BC area just beyond the gates. As you can see from my Alta photos posted earlier, I too tele and find...

    2009-2010 Jackson Hole Snow Reports

    It looks like JH is moving into an active weather pattern and picking up significant and steady snow. Next week is looking hopeful for some storms at the middle to end of the week. [-o<

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    Icelantic: I'm starting to think that you are on the New England Chamber of Commerce payroll. I agree that NH has been able to benefit from some of these storms this winter. But Northern Vermont has been left standing against the wall at the school dance. And, I have to challenge you on the...

    NE Gets Screwed Again?

    The Jet Stream has not been friendly to Northern NE this winter, so far. I will most likely hit the poconos if this storm happens. I am leaving for JHWY next week and see that the 10 day shows snow for the whole time we'll be out there. [-o< I wasn't going to pack beacons, but we will now.
