  1. "A broken tiller idler bearing", sheer incompetence, and Mother Nature with PMS....but I'm hoping most of that is now behind us. Mom could get weepy anytime though...
  2. We had 14-16" New Years Eve day which was great, those high winds and groomer deficiencies made a wreck of New Years Day. However by Saturday things had shaped up and Sunday was the best carving day so far with 3-4" on decent groom. Hopefully the ship has righted now!
  3. Last weekend was really good on the flatter slopes, 3 days of carving with two guys from Chicago.....this week has been warm 2 hours of rain last night mashed tators, lumps and dirt today
  4. Senior Moment ..Ruby is my Virus Undertaker (as in Rubella), thanks for looking after me Dave, LOL! I'm in the "center" mounting holes, some of that is the photo angle.....
  5. Well day #3 inda UP was a exceptional powder day, too bad more of the hill wasn't open. Needless to say, I had to get "Candy" out for 1st chair and see just how she'd respond to her soft side (powder) in 12"-14" of freshies. With many folks snowed in, I had the hill almost to myself for the better part of the morning. She didn't disappoint, an easy graceful ride right from the start, from the first turn I knew she was a thirst pedigree, a relaxed / neutral stance, seemed to respond simply to my will, making long, (two planker hated) sweeping turns to much tighter, giggle inducing, slalom style turns. The nose floated without any second thought, a true powder surfer. One thing I couldn't help but notice though is her glide coefficient and sheer speed, easily the fastest gear on the hill that day, even seeming to defy gravity in an "uphill" traverse were everyone else was skating or kicking their way to the headwall, we were gliding along on chair lift exit momentum alone. In speaking with Mark, he's heard this from others and feels a true harmonious relationship is achieved between the high end, high carbon sintered base material and the Quasi-Isotropic core design which has the riders weight more purposely distributed. All I know is that Ruby and I have a date for the next opportunity to ride, hopefully her "hard side", to see just what kind of havoc we can cause on Indianhead's groomers! Then we can see if indeed I finally have a "bucket list board"
  6. Always room for a split tail on the board porn string.... Here's "Candy" my new thirst PC 181
  7. I'm going to bump if you were waiting on me, ordered a new pair of RC12's from Dan Yoja. Having never worn UPZ's I wanted to start fresh with all UPZ and textbook size appropriate. Cheers!
  8. All the big snow resorts need to make lots of snow to cover holders and terrain features, plus wait for the slope springs to freeze up before they can open. They also try to make enough snow to store for use throughout the season, before Christmas week.
  9. Ok, with your "softer boot" preference, pre UPZ, what is you feeling on the '12s?
  10. I can really see how crooked I am there....Tons of manipulating this Summer to eliminate T4 Syndrome and straighten me up, actually an inch taller lol!
  11. Just took delivery on this new thirst Powder Carver 181 and this board is simply gorgeous. While all six of my thirst boards show exceptional build quality, unique graphics with the 3-D textured nylon topsheet, this PC, in Candy Apple, is truly a work of art. The keyhole tail is fully fabbed, not saw cut, with fully wrapped edge around and inside the tails, properly sidewalled. The "hook" should throw a rooster tail when in deep, and the tail is carbon fiber reinforced against breakage. The idea for the PC was to be a "Bucket List" board, the one board to bring when you can only bring one board. While every thirst model, (With the exception of the 9 SW) does well in powder, this model has powder in mind, obviously the tail provides the sink to allow the rider to stay in a normal stance/ position in bottomless freshies. Mark took his 40 some years of build experience to create a true groomer carver, incorporating his quasi-isotropic core, proprietary WARP sidecut and functional tip shape. While it may be awhile before I stretch her legs, I will be thinking much about just that.
  12. Interested! I hear that these run large, I typically wear a 28-28.5 Deeluxe, what is your US shoe size? Do you also have the OEM Liners?
