    You oughta get a 25 year old Toyota Tercel - that'll for sure get you through college. :p
    We're going to get the Aspen Classic pass, the Crested Butte 4-pack, and the Steamboat deal. Dunno what my Front Range skiing will be like, but hopefully I'll be able to get a day or two at Winter Park/MJ and Breck/Copper/A-Basin.

    Sounds cool. The only peeps arranging ski trips around here are churches, for teen-agers. They go by actual age and not mentality, so I don't get to go.

    Thanks Doug! :) Well, it's pretty interesting... the guy who was 1st in the points wasn't there, but the 2nd place guy was. So, after yesterday, he moves up to first, I move into second and the first place guy drops back to third. So... In order for me to win the overall here's what I need to happen. I need to win the Nov. race and I need the guy who's currently in third (or anybody else for that matter) to show up in Nov. and beat the guy currently in first. It sound complicated, but it's not really. It's also a completely do-able scenerio.

    I think the only skiing in Texas is the kind that Bush used to do. Sniff sniff.

    People leave Texas to ski, assbag. :mumble: There are zero ski areas here. It sucks. We even have a ton of relocated New Yorkers, so it is worse than your situation. No skiing, and obnoxious Yankees. :eviltongu

    Come to Copper. You'll find out that what you call "hardpack" we call ice. What we call hardpack, you'll call packed powder. :p

    It's no wonder all of the truly great technical skiers come from out east.....

    The worst ice we get out here in the west (most of the time) is when the run gets ridden A LOT and some of the swooshed out marks from snowboarders get a glaze of ice on top, just making it slick and make you pay attention is all.

    Well... I'm off to go warmup my car and go drive to school... :rolleyes: Hopefully there's enough snow to spin a few donuts or try some drifting on my corners...:D

    My mom's not home. She had to take my brother to the hospital. My grandma dropped acid this morning, and she was really stressed out. She hijacked a busload full of... penguins. It's sort of a family crisis. Bye!

    That's Utah. They got something like 650" of snow last year. Bahstids. :mad:
