You'll need to fill me in

At the end of spruce hollow, making the left onto the other road that goes to covered bridge, there is a beautiful log cabinish house on the left that always has 2-3 NY/NJ SUVs. Clearly they are skiers with the racks and shit. 

Them.

Got here last night, skiing DV as I can wake up at 830 and make first chair at 9. Warm, currently working overtime on my Goggle tan. Groomers were firm and smooth first thing and now turning to a

Brighton was grate! Skied all over the mountain, snow was a 12/10 and temperature was perfect. It was so Bright at Brighton I swapped my googles later in the day. After lapping Milly's several times,

@saltyant I have a pair of these you can borrow for your trip. Might make your parking situation easier to sort out. These will fit in your overhead bag so you won't even have to deal with lugging a s

That house is way too close to the road. It's crazy. I'm gonna leave blue one day and find a car parked in their living room

That’s a gorgeous home if it’s the one I’m thinking of on Hahn’s Dairy Rd. Needs more landscaping. Their grass needs work, though.

Correct, but I'm still not convinced that 9 cm makes a big difference... but I'll see tomorrow !

Yuge difference.  My 184cm skis seem short compare to my 192cms.

Senior year of high school the ski club took a trip to park city.  We befriended a bus driver who bought everyone booze and cigarettes.  One night driving through town we asked him to run over a stop sign and he actually did it. We all cheered as the bus drove away from the mangled stop sign. It layed on the side of the road the rest of the trip

Oh nice were you part of the program where they bused in inner city black kids into the suburbs?

😂😂

na, but I was part of the first class to spend all 4 years at the high school, instead of the  9th grade center first.  Pretty historic

Correct. I'll start with Nordica Enforcers 93 since they're at the top of my list. They sound like an excellent all mountain ski

Nice and good morning. Where are you skiing today?  Any breakfast plans?

I'll ski the Canyon side of PC. I had 2 bowls of generic Cheerios, 2 blueberry bagels, a yogurt and OJ. I find it's easiest to buy everything I need at Walmart and just eat breakfast in my hotel room

If you buy some bacon and paper towels, you can microwave bacon.

Salty did you check out any of the mining relics at PC? I think they are off of the Thaynes lift and bottom of Jupiter area.

Edit: probably other places too, but those are the ones I remember.

And I am still fascinated by the fact that the lift goes right into town.

The town lift is great for a quick lunch stop without having to pay on-mountain prices. Davanza's pizza is like right next to the lift, and used to do a pretty good deal for two slices and a drink with school ID. I assume you still keep your school ID in your wallet for such scenarios, right?

I wonder what I should demo tomorrow??? This is just for fun just to see what I might buy some day, and to get a feel for some different skis. They say I get to demo 5 but I think 3 will be sufficient. Some ideas below:

  • Nordica Enforcer 94
  • Volkl Kendos and/or Mantras
  • Head Kore 93
  • Salomon QST (to be rad like @toast21602

I've learned so much theory about length, width, camber, rocker, material, side cut, turning radius. But I'll probably wind up picking the skis that look coolest.

There's several different waist widths on the QST series. You don't want the QST Blank.

@saltyant whatever you do, demo the size closer to 180, not closer to 170s.

Unless it's anything from the Rossi 7 series. Then just get the longest size possible. They're all too short. I've never felt so undergunned on a 195 in my life.
