View Full Version : It's a conspiracy....
get a new pair of skis mounted and what happens....
Same thing as happens to the proud, new owner of a classic convertable (T-Bird, Vette, Healy....) ...it friggen rains!
So here I am with my new 'Bows all mounted with FR's and my new TT's cooked and fitting like a goatskin glove...and I am obliged to hang around through the weekend......
So it'll be another week before I ding the skis and knock the shine out of my boots :doh:

Sorry to hear that RR.
If it makes you feel any better, I DID get to finally try out my new Havocs, O2's and T1's and they ROCKED!
Now i just need to learn how to use them better.........

Skiing in the rain is truly a nessesary experience for a complete season in New England! It actually isn't that bad most of the time; soft snow, relatively warm temps...
That being said, we need some :snowflakes:!!!! I am getting SICK of all this rain. Rain is for the spring & summer. It's late fall/winter now!
And rain definitely doesn't help the backcountry skiing (or lack thereof) this time of year

I've been telling the Mrs that I haven't skied in the rain in several years -- seems like when I was a student in Philly skiing at Cannon it rained every Friday. Well, I got my wish on Sunday at the River. That confirms it: I still love skiing in the rain.

Well, it's a commenly accepted fact that the day AFTER the rain is an entirely different beast from the day of the rain...
well, well, well....at long last I have blooded my new Crossbows. They need a tune now, and well deserved.
They are fairly carvey, but not really racer steady carves on the really firm and slick...but I bet they have more for me on that stuff than I can take advantage of just yet.
At first it was a chore to get from edge to edge, but as I adapted, the skis showed me that I could get there quicker and I'm certain that I'll find more quick during the season.
And now....drumroll please....the mank? the choss? the crud? the pow? :D :D :D :D
And that's all I have to say about that...now I have to cut some carpet :)
