Sheesh you guys, he said he hadn't gotten any in a while , give him a break.


Just read yours Susan. Safe travels out there! Thanks again. 21 in Moab this morning traces of snow on the ground. Extreme for here, though I'll probably remember it as tropical paradise when I'm in wyo @ Xmas!

We had some snow here this week, it all melted out though.

If Jay Peak gets snow like it usually does, I'll be up there whenever possible.

It sounds crazy, but Jay has steep, krummholtz terrain up on top, and well spaced trees down low. All steep. Cliff drops too, that's what I live for.

Here's the kicker, Jay gets around 350'' a season. That's CO type numbers.

Fingers crossed, it's about time I got back on the GNAR train.

I can totally throw a better rodeo 7 than any of you.

OK, I'll bite. I'm bored.

I competed in the IFSA Big Mountain Series from '99-'01.

Never did well, top twenty once.

But, I know a thing or two about charging steep lines.

Brandon: Jay Peak!!! Haven't thought about that mountain in years. In the late 1980's, I worked as a sales-rep for a now extinct skiwear company that was based near Jay Peak.

The company hosted a annual mid-Jan sales meeting at Jay Peak. We were expected to ski one day during the meeting. I will agree the area is fun and challenging, but at one meeting the ski day was also a rain day. The Colorado rep & I both said "fuk-it we don't have to ski in the rain," and drove to Montreal for the day.

Management was pissed-off at our bad-attitude. We were the two best skiers in the rep-force, and our not being there for the shist-day of skiing set a bad example.

Full disclosure, I haven't thrown a rodeo seven in two years. I'm 33 now, and I'm sure my muscle memory is sufficient to allow me a sick off axis flip. Hopefully my center of gravity hasn't changed drastically enough to preclude this. ;)

Get some, snow lovers!
