  1. I want whatever you're smoking. What is "super weird" about the Pocono market? I think the bean counters at Vail know *exactly* what they're doing. They're not just buying places because they're guessing at a business plan. It's all calculated.
  2. We will never get to 100% with anti-vaxxers. Anti-vax talk @saltyant
  3. I couldn't imagine checking a bag on a non-ski trip. But I've only been on two ski trips where I didn't check two. One was a quick weekend trip to CA and the other involved public transit (train + bus). Both were only one pair of skis.
  4. Two pairs of skis in the bag is almost exactly 50lbs. So no room in the ski bag for anything else. I fit boots + all ski clothing in my rollaboard. When you’re on a 7 ski day trip, it’s generally more than you can fit in a backpack. I too don’t pay for bags so if I’m already checking one, might as well check two.
  5. he claims he'll never go ... we'll see how desperate he is.
  6. Most airplanes can, but not all crews can. IIRC, most/all regional can't do CATIII landing (autoland) as their aircraft and/or crews aren't certified. Very very few landings are auto landings despite popular belief. They're not nearly as smooth as hand flown landings (the computer goes for a "positive touchdown").
  7. Oh, and @GSSucks had easter eggs for everyone ... blind drawing, and i got the 24oz bud heavy. 😔 I think it was my first Bud Heavy ... ever. And of course it was a 24ozer.
  8. Yesterday was a blast. @toast21602 @mute1080 and I left my house promptly at 4:40am planning an arrival just shy of 7:30am. Two pee stops on the way, and he arrived at 7:27am, right on schedule. Quick boot up, we hit the snow at 7:45am and toured up to the top with @Justo8484 and @GSSucks. Despite being 20F when we arrived, we were all sweating our asses off after the first 1/4 mile. We all met up at the top, had a celebratory beer/truly, and enjoyed a well deserved run down before heading back to the car for several beers before venturing out for the ski day. A bunch of bump runs, and it was time to enjoy some more beers, some food, and return for some mono ski and KoreyKustom laps. So good out that there were Trulys just flying in the area.
  9. The biggest differentiator seems to be Pfizer vs Moderna. The latter giving younger individuals a harder kick on their second Fauci Ouchie.
  10. probably boomers like @indiggio
  11. Hard to find a better vaccinated group (with the exception of @saltyant) ... hard to find a PASR in the parking lot who hasn't received at least their first dose.
  12. where the hell were you? your car wasn't there when we pulled in and it wasn't there when we left? nice afternoon bump session with @mute1080 and @NazarethSkier
  13. take it to the cheap-asses trying to save $50 thread.
  14. What the hell are you talking about?
  15. wow this is grate news. unsure which pass i'll get next year ... the Northeast one is nice, but it almost seems like a waste to spend $480 when for $780 you have the option to ski any resort. at this point, i enjoy the flexibility of having both ikon and epic, which basically allows you to ski anywhere in the west.
  16. It just boggles the mind that one would not get the vaccine because there *might* be long term side effects, but at the same time would protect you against a virus that *does* have long term side effects. The logic is flawed.
  17. Who is bringing the SPF80? Going to be lovely. Almost 60F and a slight breeze.
  18. What is "later"? What the hell do you have that's more important than the PASR Party?!
  19. Today was a repeat of yesterday ... maybe even better? skied with @Benm for an hour. Easily got 7 in.
  20. Congrats on getting your second Fauci Ouchy!
  21. amazing mid-winter conditions on razors today. was unexpected. great morning. grate talk @saltyant
