I am really jonesing for some good skiing. I would rather ski than breathe.
Having moved to the East Coast, the skiing here is, well, it's lacking.

Stand in line for a half an hour to get on a lift, then it takes a minute and a half to get to the bottom. Plus the amount of ice is amazing. I for one like ice - I am a speed freak, I just aim straight down and go. Ice is the best for speed. Just don't try and turn too often.

My favorite by far is Jackson Hole, Wyoming, followed by SteamBoat, Colorado.

I don't really ski, but everyone else does in my family. We live on Mount Hood, and there are 3 different places to ski here, Mount Hood Meadows (on the east side of the mountain. And then there is Timberline, and Ski Bowl on the south side of the Mountain.

We've had a Mega snow year...the Hwy is a steady stream of skiers and snow boarders all day long...even up into the night with the night skiers.

Always good to have a ski buddy. I hope he likes to race. I'm a pretty big guy, and I get alot of forward momentum.

Don't be so self effacing. I've followed some of your posts around the board, and you strike me as a fine parent.

I certainly have tried to do my best I guess I've done alright...nobody's on drugs...and it's never been an issue....I feel like they are past the real drug danger zone.

Now, lets see how they do with alcohol :w:

This girl has a loving halo so big it keeps the rain off if you stand close enough.

I am sworn to secrecy oh mighty Lombozo but this gal will walk over broken glass for her kids and she doesn't know how to pat herself on the back.

Hey Jen my favourite is a volcano in New Zealand called Mt Ruapehu (pron: ROO-AHH-PAY-WHO)

It has neat gullies cliffs and chasms. Anything but boring. The only thing missing on Kiwi skifields are trees. I love the idea of skiing through trees.

Actually the best skifields are those without snowboarders.

Oh how i agree...

I have done ALOT of skiing. Here in Australia i am a big fan of Mt Hotham, i love the resort, and the diverse amount of difficulty.

BUT...

Nothing compares to Whistler/Blackcombe in Canada... that was the most amazing time ever. There was a temperature inversion for a week, this meant the village was blizzardy and horrible but the ski fields were clear, blue and perfect, the length of runs were insane as well.

Hey that's something about skiing in the States/Canada... deep powder. We usually just get piste here. Only once have I ever skied in waist deep powder and that was like skiing on velvet.
