How do we like the chips headphones? Better than just shoving some AirPods up in there?

My wife and I both use the wireless ones, zero complaints. Much more enjoyable than managing wired earbuds under my hat like I used to.

Denverites,

Is there a ski/snowboard outlet (last year's gear) shop down there somewhere? MSO in Dillon used to kick rear end up here, but the last few times I have been there, its all current gear and near list price.

I need to get the wife some new snowboard bindings, and have to make an airport run tomorrow. Hoping there is somewhere I can swing by quickly.

Do they sell snowboard stuff too, or just ski? I am not seeing any snowboard stuff on their site.

there honestly isn't that much to see at Vail, in terms of the village. It's all whitewashed with super premium retail and lodging. I can count on one hand probably the number of decent places within walking distance of the lifts.

The George is the only place we stop at on the way out of Vail.

Found a lot of late afternoon powder at Breck, will do again tomorrow morning.

I70 is apparently a parking lot, no one drive on it (emergency shelter open in Frisco).

They seemed to brush it off as it isn't a problem. Some debris from construction got under the grip or something.

Still, not a good look.

Well, I'll ski with them for like a day-- maybe 2 if someone lets me use their buddy passes.

Otherwise my cheap rear end is going to Copper for free laps!

Uh, it's 189 now.....

If you need it I should be able to let you use my buddy pass pricing. I never use em.

That is what my collar bone looks like after 9 days of healing. Doesn't look good so time for surgery. My first x-ray doesn't look near as bad. It didn't really stay in place like we thought it might. But glad it is now and not 6 weeks from now.

Their support staff has been great. When I got the 7.5% lens in and it was way too light, I called the phone number listed. They picked up in one ring and are shipping me a replacement.

I used them last year at several mountains and never had any issue. The only downside is they donít have insanely loud colors for the band.

The 7.5% was too light? Those things should be like blackout.

Have a pair coming Friday, 10% VLT.

Would you mind posting a pic of the 10% when you get it?

Just saw this, I'll see if I can get a good pic after work. They are mirrored so I'm pretty sure it will just be a reflection of myself.

Wore them out on the mountain yesterday (bright bluebird day) and they worked great. No issues with fogging or fit with my helmet. Pretty surprised. We will see how they hold up.

Have you thought about getting a sticker of Calvin pissing on the logo?

After living in the mountains and seeing them (along with every other type of vehicle) stuck in snowbanks, I don't think any vehicle is invincible. 4/AWD and good snow tires is your best bet.

For some reason the Subaru drivers like to tell everyone they are God's gift to snow covered roads.

The worst the people in the rental Suburbans with poo poo all season tires. They probably don't have a ton of exp driving in snow and assume 4wd "just works".

Yes, I agree. Good tires and good driving are by far the two most important things. I used to drive my Accord up the mountain. It had snow tires on and it did fine. My WRX does better, though If the snow wasn't packed down / if I was trying to start from a stop on a hill with the Accord, things got dicey. I don't have to worry about that anymore.

People tend not to realize that 4WD / AWD help you move, but they sure as hell don't help you stop. That's where the tires come in.

But I was originally responding to your joke about them being unreliable, which I don't really agree with, but that's a dumb thing to argue about in the skiing thread of all places.

It was a dumb joke none the less, ski on friends.

The Breck gondola (from town to base of 8) isn't long enough to do this.

I added it to my Plex server, immediately got a text from a friend saying it's his favorite ski movie. He described it as "bump runs mixed with softcore porn".
