Relic! Hit me up in the pebs! Check this topo for boulders with winter sun from 10-2, right when the grand gets light if u got any skin left, might be some leaves but I think there's a few brushes up there.

I think Anders needs to rent some fat skiis, head up to W/B, and tag along with the crew for a day in downhill meca. Sure I would rather ride my bike but I've tagged along up there and it's OUTSTANDING. It makes Rainbow look like Mt. Washington.

Anders and I have made plans to ski sometime this winter. Most likely no lifts involved, but there will be motorized vechicles-but i'm sure we'll car pool -oh wait, thats' what my downhill mtb friends call shuttling-I've got to stop making plans with MH, he's in the same category of sinner!

Yes, it's true. The Greg One and I have a playdate to go schralping in the gnar powpow sometime soon. (Hopefully he'll explain what that involves beforehand, if only so that I can be prepared.) Probably somewhere not very novel or challenging. I've managed to prevail upon him to compromise his principles to the extent of using an infernal combustion powered vehicle for the approach, but it will otherwise be as ideologically pure an adventure as is feasible.

Not so fast, oh Sanctimonious One: Where do you think the plastic grips on your ski poles were made? Probably in a sweatshop in some third-world country.

Ideological purity isn't really available any more. So just sit back, enjoy the ride up on the lift, and then shred.

Is feeling compromised analogous with feeling like yer data has been compressed ?

I didn't think I'd be starting a contest with that shot, but if that's what you want, it's fine by me. It's not Centrefold (Which should absolutely go to the top of your list for this summer Mike), and BK doesn't win any prize either.

Just managed to pass some time reading BKs letter in the piqué. Very nice work Bruce, it's great to see your writing style isn't much affected whether its on ST or in a letter to the paper. Great job & strong message. it reminded me of a letter i read in there about a year back with some similarities, the issue was about parks removing land just like in yours but instead of the words heli-ski they used the word gondola in that other letter:-) regardless I'm not for either. The issues(gondola/heli ski) are very different of course but the arguments against them seem very similar from where I'm sitting & I'm against both for many of the same reasons. Cheers.
