I figured you were trolling us. 

I'd have taken a photo but my phone's front cam is busted and i was solo, sorry. Maybe i'll get someone to take a photo today.

You're more than welcome to try out / hang on to my Prophets if you'd like.

Thanks, I appreciate the offer. I might take you up on the offer to try them out later in the season. Feels like I've got people throwing equipment at me to try from left and right in this thread, which is great because I'd love to try it all.

It's pretty wild, I thought this forum was a bunch of people behind keyboards in PA ripping on one another who maybe met up to ski on rare occasions. judging by the photos from yesterday, it's clearly not.

I got up there later than i wanted to yesterday. After figuring out how to park (i'm only used to the valley, lots of one ways etc at the top) and getting my photo for my pass (should have done it last week, i know). I was prob on the mountain by 930. I left around 1145 or noon, can't remember. Just wnated to get a few runs in. I'm only 20min north of there, so heading to the mtn on a whim is usually no big deal.

I plan on heading back up today around 1230 when my wife goes to work.

Sorry for any confusion brm but I was offering them to Schif since I know he's moving from snowboarding to skiing and I think the Phophet may be a good ski for him to try next. Plus the dimensions on them may be good for him. Definitely not to say that I'm not happy to let you try 'em out either if the height/ width etc. are what you're looking for.

I should have registered as something cooler than 'brm', i didn't know where the registration would lead me but i can't change it now. My name is Ben .

You can change your username. Just go into account settings. I keep meaning to change mine to something cooler like CamelbackFan123 but I think everyone will still call me "Salty".
