Why is the thread title gently caress Vail? I just went for the first time in 10 years today. It was pretty great.
PS, any Goons ever want to meet up some weekend and ski/snowboard?
Disclaimer. I'm from the Midwest and am not the best skier.

Heh, hey Chicago buddy.

I'm hitting Winter Park Tuesday/Wednesday because I'd rather take off a couple of days in the middle of the week and not get paid than fly/ski on the weekend.

Ah I wish, I don't have any days off for a while yet. Just skiing on weekends for now :(
PS I moved out of Chicagoland in August

Yeah. I use my old destroyed poles from when I was a kid and no one comments.

Lessons booked in 3 weeks. Hyped. Wish it could be sooner but adulthood.

Where are you going? Also if you need more help after your lesson and it's in Colorado I can help. I used to be an instructor back in the day and am patient/ don't care if I spend a day hanging out on greens

Loveland. Too good a deal to pass up, combined with a few people I trust saying it's a good place to learn.

I'd love to learn more afterwards, too. Where do you like to ski?

Anywhere on the Epic Local Pass(because I'm poor and its all I can afford). Pick a place and we can work out a day to ski!
Skiing is great and you're gonna have a great time!

I went to A-basin for the first time in a decade. That place held up. I love the new terrain. But what the gently caress is up with $20 parking now

I think I'd rather stab myself than not wear ski socks.

Same. Also ski boots are the worst but after 26 years of skiing I finally have boots that only hurt for the first hour or so. :dreams:

Innsbruck, Austia. Holy poo poo what a great place. I will ski there in the near future. Go there.

I went there last year with my wife! It was amazing. It's the only non United States skiing I have ever done and I loved the experience.

I would spend whatever on an A-basin pass. It's the best one anyways

I trained again for the first time since breaking my rib today. I managed four runs in the two easy slalom courses. I stayed out of the third one since the conditions were "ice sheet mixed with death cookies" so I figured for a first day back that combined with the steeper hill in my worst discipline was a recipe for disaster, especially since I'm still technically in "do not fall or you might puncture your lung" territory.

It was a lot of fun, though.

Do you have any videos of someone racing your courses? I'm curious what they look like and how long they are
