I bought a new pair of skis on a thanksgiving sale..

These are a lot bigger than my current skis. But I think I am ready for it.

Can't wait!!

4. Long skis by today's standards, for sure!

My first pair were 205cm with bear trap bindings - a miracle I still have knees.

Where do you like to ski?

5. Northeast mostly .. Mont Tremblant / Vermont when I feel like driving

 

Else bellayre NY or Mountain Creek NJ closer home more often.

I went to Banff 2 years.. Just loved it ..great powder .. Not the icy carp we mostly have here... And vast terrain ..

6. Banff! On my bucket list, as is Whistler/Blackcomb.

Iím a Colorado boy stuck in the Cascades - I totally know what you mean about icy crap. Havenít enjoyed powder for many years now.

Hope you enjoy the new boards!

7. Would love to retire in Banff...The beauty is STUNNING.

 

1000's of square miles of pristine beauty. If you went back 5000 years pretty some of the areas would have looked the same.
