And they're Carbon Fiber!!!!! I'm sooo excited.

X136 is right about that little mountain range to the East. Davis is less than 2 hours to the major Ski Resorts in the Tahoe area. It's much better than the 4 hour drive when I used to live in San Jose, CA. Lately, I've been sticking to Squaw Valley but might expand out the the other resorts this year. Northstar and Heavenly look real nice. I just found out that my Mom's cousin owns a cabin in South Lake Tahoe.

I read about that :drool:. I am feeling the early season stoke after watching a MSP ski film yesterday.

I'm hopeful that I can get the snowboard out this winter and do some carving.

Yeah! I got the new skis two years ago, boots last year, and this was the last piece of the puzzle.

The Trigger S system is where the straps separates from the poll with the push of a button and reconnects by catching a loop on a hook at the top of the pole. The straps stay with your hands all day. Makes it convenient getting on lifts.Can't think of any other reason for it though.
