  1. Group therapy thread

    Here's my contribution. A few of my favorite photos from last season.
  2. Bretton Woods early season vouchers

    I bought 10. I like to go there early season to get my legs into shape. Plus it is never a problem to offload any surplus.
  3. Quiver theory

    We are different people. I could get by with one pair of skis per day.
  4. There is a 3-day flash sale of early season tickets to Bretton Woods. $22 valid any day through December 15, 2017. This is a price increase from $20 last year. Typically they offer this special at the ski expo in Boston too.

    Planning to be in the Chelmsford area any time in the foreseeable future? If so, stop by and they are yours.
  7. Quiver theory

    Let me start by admitting it: I have a problem. I'm a gear whore. I love always having the proper tool for a job. I just brought in ten pairs of skis to the shop for a stone grind. Plus an additional new pair along with my brand new boots for a binding mount. No, not all of them were mine. I've also built a quiver for my wife too. The kids working at the shop said that was the most skis they've ever had dropped off at once. "Really?", I thought. "I left four more pairs at home," I confessed. That confession brought me to thinking about what gear I just must have next. So let's talk about Quiver Theory. I'll start by outlining my quiver and the role of each ski. Powder ski - 2013 Fischer Big Stix 110 (186 cm) Tight trees - 2014 Liberty Sequence (182 cm) Hung over - 2014 K2 Rictor 82 XTi (177 cm) Spring conditions - 2015 Nordica NRGY 100 (177 cm) Frozen granular groomers - 2016 Head Monster 88 (177 cm) Beer league - 2017 Volkl Racetiger SL (165 cm) Mixed-snow - 2017 Nordica Enforcer 93 (193 cm) I know what you're thinking: How can I run a slalom ski for beer league? That should be reserved for the bullet-proof refrozen days at Wildcat. I need cheater ski for beer league. It's next on my purchase list. It is probably time to replace my powder skis too. They have a binding issue in need of some attention.
  8. 2018 Winter Gathering poll

    I really need to recalibrate expectations for the mobile app. I use a third-party vendor (tapatalk) for the app. As far as I can tell, they are the only game in town for forum mobile apps. Unfortunately they're not perfect, and they try to make it generally compatible with multiple forum platforms which means they don't support the full range of features. I'm finding more and more of these limitations as I expand my advanced use of the community platform.
  9. Wildcat 17-18 Season Thread

    They used to open Lower Catapult first before they had the capacity to blow top-to-bottom. Now Lynx is the obvious play for a number of reasons: it is just about everybody's favorite trail it connects in with Polecat to get novice terrain online earlier it's off the Tomcat Triple which gives them a backup lift
  10. I've created a new feature that allows users to ask a question of the community. Users can answer, and up or down vote others' answers (think reddit or StackOverflow). What do you think?
