I think Arapahoe Basin, CO is still open. If not there is still plenty of snow in the backcountry.

Fo shizzle.. Its just a pity that I moved out of CO. I was at Crested Butte this march. Epic. But we east coasters have some back country snow too! Tuckerman ravine. While its no Fourteener, cant beat it for spring skiing.

What did you get? I had a pair of Blizzard WC GS skis that I just got rid off. It was a tad too much for me to handle at my weight and East Coast trials.

Maybe Jsharr will heli drop all of us on top of Mt.Washington.

Fischer Race SC's & Railflex FX 12 bindings (pretty stoked).

Actually, I lied. I didn't get the bindings set up on them yet because I need new boots, so I can't go...

Booo... Are the rails mounted at least, if so mounting them for your old boot is a breeze. I have a pair of Fisher RX8s that I absolutely love for all day ice coast skiing.

Isnt it all about weight these days? They are 165s, 19m turn radius if I recall correctly.


Edit:- You know you have a gear problem when you know what the dimensions and sidecut of you skis are.
