  1. I did have to correct a ski patrol at Meadows this year when he pointed out to the person behind me that I was on an old school board with ski boots. If it was just a random I probably wouldn't have said anything.
  2. After today it's a confirmed slush slayer.
  3. He must have burned through his orange pants already.
  4. I just took it out in 7-10" of new. I even did some tree runs, which was a little scary until I realized that you can maneuver it like a much shorter board. Not only does it float, it's pretty easy to turn. I was able to get fresh stuff in some flat sections that nobody else dared, It never got stuck, just floated on through. Then I railed some pretty tight turns on the groomers. Someone needs to buy the one that Mark has in stock, you wont be sorry.
  5. Tacoma to White pass is 2 1/2 hours. No lines. More consistently pitched groomers than Crystal and you don't have to deal with the trudge through Bonney Lake and Buckley...just sayin'
  6. Thanks. The website says they are only open Fri-Sun, I wasn't aware of this. I wonder how much the limited hours of operation contributed to the bankruptcy.
  7. We just did a room in our house with Costco flooring. It was less expensive than any other I've seen and it looks good.
  8. I'm supposed to be going to McCall next month for 2 days at Tamarack and 2 at Brundage. Does anyone whose been there have any advice? Other than "Go forth and prosper."
  9. I got to ride it today, first day of the season for me and there was enough coverage to warrant riding a new board. So here's the story. I've always wanted a Tanker 201 but they were a little wider than what I prefer to ride. I also heard that their build quality suffered when they moved production to China. So I hassled Mark for over a year to build a board like the Tanker but narrower and Thirstier. He did, it rocks. It snowed a couple of inches yesterday so the groomers were pretty soft today. A carving board would have been fine if you didn't try to tip it on edge too much. The
  10. https://www.sportlegs.com/ I use these early season and when riding multiple days.

  12. Last season, I had never been to Ski Bluewood in SE Washington State. I bought an online deal 3 advanced tickets good for any day for $40 off retail price. The closest town is Dayton (about 45 minutes from Bluewood). I shopped online and chose what appeared to be the least offensive of the two fleabag motels. I drove 5 1/2 hours on Thursday and checked in. After paying I noticed a small sign behind the counter that said "No Refunds". Now when travelling alone I have pretty low standards, so I thought, how bad can it be? I moved into the room, I was the only one in the hotel and they had
