Greek Peak Conditions

Since nobody local started it, I will. Looks like a gully washer today, I predict the skiing will be marginal tomorrow.



Questions for Camp:

I think you come out on Sundays?

I want to meet you bro. When it is snowy.  

I won't press you ski too much if you don't press me drink too much!

Re: Greek Peak Conditions

We def need to hook up, no doubt!

Haven't skied in 2 years, knee can't take it. Well, it's not worth the pain to be quite honest. That said I may lace em up if you're on the hill. Make no promises though cause if it's deep I'll be riding.

However, I will with 100% certainty, meet you in Trax for a beverage of your choice when you're done skiing for the day. The A18 Gang is a real hoot!

So what’s the story with your knees Camp? Have you thought about surgery?

Re: Greek Peak Conditions

Short version --- 2012 I blew my left knee out due to a pre-release binding incident. Second worst crash I ever had. Had complete reconstructive surgery, did all the rehab. Blah blah blah. Then tore my ACL again 9 mo's later. Was so pissed off!! Now it's full of arthritis and still slides out from time to time if I'm not square on it. I could brace it up and go ski (which is what I'll do when Harv is there) but the day after I really pay for it. Plus with it still sliding out it's hard for me to trust it.

Only fix to it now is a new knee. I'm not ready for another surgery yet. Can't being myself to do it. PLus my insurance sucks so it's a fair amoount of coin out of pocket for me. My last surgery cost me 5K. I can buy a lot of fun stuff with 5K -- lol


If all we had was dick deep POW it wouldn't be an issue. The vibration from the hard pack shit we ski on is the real culprit.

Honestly I'm truly hooked on riding now, so if there's snow to be I'd rather be on my sled. Man those things are fun! Awesome sense of power and speed.

I do miss first chair with the crew --- maybe I'll give er a go --- never know

F that sucks blowing it out less than a year from getting surgery. I get it, not wanting to go through it all over again.

When the time comes it will work out fine. I ski with a guy who was 2 fake knees, he can pop off Royal cristies and ski a “mild” bump line and loves pow. Another guy has a fake hip and he carves a fine fast line. I have no excuses - I just follow them.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

That is encouraging. I'll come when you are ready, and I'll come when it is soft, and maybe we will ski!

I can wait 2 years.

I'm basically a wuss so you'll be fine.

Re: Greek Peak Conditions

Unfortunately camp you haven't missed alot in terms of snow conditions anyway over the last few years at GP

I've only had a handful of nice pow/soft days and think I only missed another handful

now trax that's another story!

Hopefully this year will be better - I miss it! A nyskiblog day would be a hoot!
