I have been ready to ski since June, I don't remember how I found you guys I guess while I was googling for Killington glade videos, after getting a new pair of Tecnica Mach 1s last year my skiing is back to where it was years ago when I won a psychocross race at snowshoe mountain, that was skiers and snowboarders combined but skiers could not use their poles.
Thank you Brownski! One of the coolest thing is cool people ski, always meeting awesome people, unlike around here (northern Va DC area) great area for work but can't wait to hit 95 north when the snow guns fire up!
Good EC skiers know how to use their edges, tune their skis and hug a tight tree line. The best Western skiers know this too. Good western skiers have an eye for avalanche terrain, can pick a better line in deep powder. The best EC skiers know this too. Truly expert skiers are experts anywhere.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.
Ah, that explains why I've never heard of the Psychocross at Snowshoe. I didn't start skiing regularly in the southeast, including VA/WV, until 2004. I'm also originally a New Yorker, but from NYC. Went to camp in western NY and school in Lake Placid for a couple years.
I have a few good friends in the DC area who take trips based on Ikon. But they tend to fly west instead of driving north. We met up at Taos and Big Sky last Feb.
