    Dude, is that a f*g bag your wearing, you look like a Texan

    You know I'm in, no pass for me this year so I'm up for a cheap hill, maybe Squeaker can fix us up at Vail though. Are you staying in Denver with Candy?

    As in free? Aspen is expensive and far, never skied there so I can't comment on the mtn but I'm sure it's good. I'm thinking Loveland/ WP/ Copper, something closer to the FR, A- basin is good but it's got steeper terrain. The Summit county resorts(Breck/Keystone) will be getting crowded for sure with the Xmas season coming, we should do a weekday also.

    as in a very nice cat offered the corns a place to stay in aspen. might be a once in a lifetime chance for us so im seein if theres more interest in skiin the area. i know, totaly selfish of me but friggin waaaaaa i say.

    yer right rr, those would be far easyer to get to for most everyone and cheaper too. as i said in the beginnin, im down for anything that is if i can pull this trip off. weekdays might be tough but i might slide in a fri/sat thing if candycorn's ok with it. i agree that off weekend skiin is far more fun, but mid week rules.

    I missed this whole Shaped ski thing. I still ride my 205cm Atomic Arc's Slalom boards I used to race with in college.

    If it's going to be Aspen, don't miss Highlands!

    And Tap, lighten up. You don't live 20 minutes from a mountain, you live 20 minutes from Mt. Flatchelor! Or is that Mt. Traverse?

    Flame suit on!

    At least Tap can ski. Due to a highway washout, we can't even get to our little hometown hill of Mt. Hood Meadows!

    ok, Kosmo. U da man. Just remember, I'll be riding Ye Ol' Flatchelor at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning while you're protesting another walmart and poundin' yer pud in the Gorge, wishing the ODOT could remove car sized boulders from Hwy 35. DOH!

    c'mon down and visit, bro. we'll schralp it up.

    Cowboy up, Brokeback.

    I'm about the same height, 10 lbs lighter, on 170 Head SuperShapes. Why are you on those midget sticks?

    I'd bet that the jacket has something to do with it. Looks pretty much like a Snow Homer jacket.

    The Salomon skis already scream Snow Homer. You know, racerboy image, intermediate skill compatibility.

    And the fact that you are skiing in Colorado, home of the transplanted pseudo-outdoorsy "I'll have a triple nonfat latte with my dozen Krispy Kremes please" while talking on the cell phone and thumbing through the latest issue of Architectural Digest at the local doughnut hotspot somewhere between the airport and one of the overcrowded Colorado Front Range ski areas.

    Yes, I understand. Long skis have no shape at all. They have absolutely no side cut.

    Those leather boots and Cubco bindings are Aces, aren't they?

    Tom, you ought to check out a skibike while you're in D-town or nearby.



    Easier to learn than snowboarding, but (IMO) way, way more fun to do. You can ride all day and you never get beat down tired. Rip it up with your buds (or people that are stronger/faster/more skilled on skis than you) but never get tired legs. Enjoy the liftlines that everyone else is b!tching about--because you can have a seat while they stand and whine. Well, maybe you won't actually enjoy the lines, but you can enjoy your friends' misery...



    I was a bit skeptical until I tried one. Now I save the boards for powder days--if there's less than 10" of fresh I take the ski bike instead. Easiest, most intuitive carving sensation I've ever felt (and I've been skiing/boarding/tele'ing for 23 years), plus it's fun to rip through bumps and chunder and just let the suspension do the work.

    Best part? If you dig it (and you will) you can get a kit to convert your favorite bike (RFX?) for the winter months.

    Cheers,

    MC

    Thank you for displaying your complete lack of understanding on ski design.

    And I rather like the leather boots
