Brain Trick

This is me being serious, because it is a serious topic...don't waste money on the wrong gear! Buy the skis for the terrain and conditions you "do" ski rather than the conditions you "want" to ski. For example, here at Panorama we will get between 8-12 good powder days per year...that's not a lot when you ski 50+ days. We like to stick to a one quiver ski, so for our resort skiis, a good width is 99-105mm, with camber and tip/tail rocker. This gives you some float on powder days and good grip for the mixed conditions around the mountain most other days. This theory can be carried through all types of gear and this article does a good job of discussing the "noise" around gear so that you can focus on the real "signal". (6 min read)

Moose Lick: Canadian moose are going crazy and National Park authorities have issued a warning: "Do not let moose lick your car". Apparently, the moose have figured out that the salt on your car is yummier than the stuff on the road...be warned that they will aggressively try to lick you and your car...maybe not you, unless you were just working out? Moose-tongue distance is difficult to put an exact distance on, but the guidelines state people should stay 100 feet from animals so that’s a good number to keep in mind.
