  1. Apparently she has dropped out of the public eye these days. Found an old racing picture of her I hadn’t seen before, thought I’d share.

  2. Don't mind if I do! As some of you may recall, I had the good fortune to be needed as a chaperone for a ski camp there last summer. The closest thing we have to this in the east is Tuckerman Ravine. Imagine Tuck's bowl with two poma lifts. While Beartooth Basin is certainly not a destination resort, if you have any excuse to travel nearby (Red Lodge MT, Yellowstone) it would be well worth taking a detour to experience the Basin. Here's some pics from our trip: 1. View from Beartooth Pass 2. Beartooth Basin - it was a low snow year. Pic taken June 19, 2020. 3. wid

  5. Maine coast Wolf? Among many projects, I've been catching up on some long neglected varnish work on my 32' double-ended cutter. Last spring I tackled a daunting project (for me) and replaced the 45 yr old diesel myself. The list of projects on a cruising sailboat are neverending, but I'm catching up with them in my retirement. It's amazing how much gets done when you don't have a job to get in the way The north shore of Lake Superior reminds me of the coast of Maine, but it's off limits til the border opens up, so I"ll just keep ticking projects off the list til I can't stand the h

  8. @scottishsurfer We welcome all softboot carvers, especially ones that are so prevalent on the forum. Would love to have you join us. @west carven YES you should be there... you live closer than 99.9% of the people that come. @slopestar Hope you are getting healed up! Looking forward to seeing you and Katie again at MCC in 2023! Turner Mountain and the community of Libby really appreciate your support and business last year. How in the world is Aspen cheaper than Montucky? You must have an inside connection. Conditions are always a gamble anytime the ski area is below 8000feet, b

  9. Just to the south of Red Lodge, Montana on the scenic highway that goes to Cooke City (near Yellowstone) is Beartooth Basin Summer Ski Area. They open typically as soon as the highway plowed open(Saturday), and close when the snow melts out (early - mid July). What this place lacks in grooming and terrain, it completely makes up for that with the people. Everyone riding there is just so darn happy to be sliding on snow in such a beautiful place. I got to spend the day up there today, carved a few turns, slid, hopped and skidded a bunch of turns and just had a grin on my face all day l

  16. Put a new roof on my house. I know every step and have done this type of work before. I also know, being an extremely particular individual, that I will do a better, more thorough job than if I hire a contractor. I will be able to install a higher quality shingle and pay less for the project if I do it myself. I just can't bring myself to commit to doing the job because roofing sucks!

  17. First point--> my experience tells me there are 1) always idiots / rubs out there, 2) everyone wants to get rich and thinks real-estate is a great way to print money, 3) American's have no memory in general... always been the case, always will be. Buying opportunities are ample for those with memories, however. Second point--> "hyper" not so sure, inflation, sure. Not always a bad thing, however. We shall see how this all cooks up, as many causes stem from the pandemic and its impact on production and the supply chain. No one has the answer. Hey! That was a pretty go

  19. Understood… @dredmanit was amazing fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Especially at 100% physically! Aspen is cheaper only because I don’t have to take 2 extra travel days to get there and back. Fortunately, I know my Friend Erick Vines will be back for sure! And who knows, katie and I might make it back… great people/great mountain and Libby was very good to us as well. Don’t miss the opportunity to go to MCC, you won’t be disappointed.

  20. I’ll be honest here. Montana kicked my butt. I showed up at about 65% after straining my back in January trying to shrink up a turn on a big radius Alloy that I had not yet figured out. That Mountain is no Joke. We had adverse conditions that did not affect some but I just could not hang on to a committed turn after day 1. I could make a million excuses… I spent most of my time doing cross unders on the long cat tracks after the first day. I don’t think we will make the trek for 2022. Aspen is way cheaper and the conditions are hard to pass up. I knew my wife and I should have gone in 202

  23. Wildfires and snowboarding! June 14, 2021 This picture is from about 9:30am, just a touch of smoke over the hill. Tomorrow will be the last day of season for Beartooth Basin, running very thin on snow. This photo was taken at noon. Yes, they will shoot, you are in Wyoming. This is where you purchase your lift tickets. Flags are very appropriate on Flag Day!

  24. Right now real estate is at a premium. Imaginary me is living large - been looking at Ogden, Ut, Basalt Co, Sugarloaf Me, Reno/Lake Tahoe, Whitefish, Summit county Co, Jackson Hole, Vitor/Driggs areas before the price took off vertically. Now it's way out of my price range. It might keep going up or maybe there will be a price correction. With that kinda of money; i would just do season rental and chase the snow globally. (try before you buy). Let me know if you need a bellhop lol... Carving/less crowd: typically weekday riding (or early on weekend). Resort gets crowded o

  25. Does $2 million buy you a big house in Aspen? Personally if I were buying in the US it would be Whitefish. I love the hill and it’s only a day’s drive from home. I believe it also meets your criteria but honestly Aspen is better if carving is your main goal and you have the scratch.

  27. Yes. It's Loud's Island (on Wikipedia). You have a thousand times more maintenance to keep up with on your cutter but it sure looks nice in that photo. I'm only a summer resident in Maine in an old family house that I now have. Lot's of maintenance to do there too on a 1905 house.

  28. When we were kids our local bumps had rope tows. You could go up the hill faster than you could come down especially when a friend was driving the tow and threw it in third gear. Tremendous for building upper body strength.

  29. I'm sorry to hear that. I was reading this as I'm interested in how things are going in Canada, a place I care about. People I worked with in the UK have been "in the front line" of Covid. They were exposed to the virus before we had decent PPE and vaccines, because it was their job to help the sick. Some died. I just walked away from a dinner table where some right wing moron was spouting off about how much he dislikes being told not to kill more of us. I did not walk away because I'm a "snow flake",

  30. I met and rode with her one day at Stratton, maybe 96-97ish after she won at the Open, just after Nagano? There were probably a few other names in the group, but I was smitten with amnesia. So adorable and gnarly.

  31. What has happened to the fundamental principals that once defined an economy. An eight foot 2x4 costs $7.00 a sheet of plywood is $75.00 houses sell for hundreds of thousands over asking price and a new truck can't be had for lack of computer chips. I don't think anyone would argue that the only tool to curb inflation is a substantial interest rate hike but the gov't doesn't seem to be interested in addressing this at the present time. Perception and reality help me understand what's going on today.

  32. @philw Try biasing your bindings on wide boards so that your rear binding toe is close to the edge, and your front binding heel is close the edge. Works for me on my old Rad Air Obsession/Pinkerman Extreme and the board carves easily and flicks quickly from edge to edge.

  37. Hey @pow4ever mate! I think the S in the Genutrain S might actually stand for "Support". This is a hinged brace, which I kind of avoided after trying 2 other hinged braces and found them to be too intrusive for my particular preference. The Genutrain Sport is actually the cheapest from all the Bauerfeind braces! It is more compressive, lighter and breathable than the regular Genutrain line of braces (Genutrain (normal version), P3 (patella issue specific version), A3 (arthritis specific version), S (hinged support version)). It also has silicon strips on the inside, which aid in it s

  38. So, this rolled in today. I've got my work cut out for me and it's going to be rather expensive, but with a bit of work I can make this thing look and run much nicer than in its current state! Manual swap, paint correction, interior plastics, and a new engine and we're in business!

  39. Interest rates don't matter to people who buy for cash. We just had a condo that was purchased for $76K in 2009 that was listed for $469,900, sold in 2 hours for cash, for $490,000. It closed in 3 weeks. There's almost nothing offered under $1,000,000 unless you want to buy a condo with outrageous HOA fees, and I mean up t $20K/year. Many of the houses that are in Big Sky, Seattle/Tacoma/Duluth, are selling for cash offers significantly above asking price. A house across the street from me in Tacoma Wa. sold for $384,000 4 years ago. 2044 Sq Ft on a 5,000 Sq Ft lot that was liste

  43. I've been seeing turmeric come up in my reading lately, too. I just started glucosamine and chondroitin, though. I did try a number of new knee braces recently with the intention of returning the ones I don't like and keeping 1 for snowboarding.. Really liking the Bauerfeind Genutrain Sport so far, ended up buying 2 pairs so I can rotate them. These are the ones I tried. In addition to my Rehband 7051. Bauerfeind Genutrain Sport- offered best comfort, compression, perceived support and ability to stay up. Bauerfeind Sports Compression Knee Support- keeping these, also. Super c
