Bought some Head Monster 88s for SO to add to his quiver of Stockli Laser AX and Volkl 90Eights. Now he's got something right in the middle. I've had some lengthy conversations with folks about the skis, think he'll be happy with them.

I demoed the M88 at Killington last December. Very nice and damp, reminded me of my Elan Amphibio 88s.

Cool. I'm hoping he likes them. I bought him a pair of Black Crow Captis skis but they were too soft for him. I think they would have been fine for softer snow days but he needs more of a mixed condition ski that will be good on hardpack and fun in softer snow, bumps, trees, etc. I think the Monster 88s will work fine.

New pants and a new fleece to go with my tangerine jacket.
I plan to ski more in the trees this year.
If I fall in the woods and can't get up, I should be easy to find!

I spoiled the heck out of myself with some summer sales and a not on sale new pair of boots for 2020:
Stöckli Stormrider 88s...186cm with Tyrolia Attack bindings.
2020 Dalbello Panterra 130 ID GW boots (well over a pound lighter than the 2019 Panterra 120s I traded)
And to get the most use out of my gear got Ikon Pass for season.

Can’t wait for snow!!!!

I added another ski to the list that I’m sure will be up for sale here after I get few days or runs out of it.

It is an 18’ Blizzard Firebird WC SL (165) w/ Marker Race Xcell 16s. They should arrive next week and since I brought the QSTs home yesterday, a pic is required.

Finally made a decision and purchased a new deep snow ski to replace my beloved DPS Wailer 112RP skis.
The winner is the Fischer Ranger 115 FR.


This video certainly helped me in the decision making process:

Of course now there will be no deep days anywhere I ski. So you can blame me! :eek::cool::huh::roflmao:

For a few seasons I have skied with heated ski boots and that finally solved any issues with ever having cold feet. So as I sat on many chairs last season with warm feet, but cold hands, I thought often about getting a pair of heated gloves. Finally pulled the trigger on the OR Stormtracker Heated Sensor gloves.



Not only are they heated, but they also have the sensor fingertips so you can deal with your phone without taking off the gloves. Hopefully these actually perform as advertised. :)

I’ve got the Capstone heated gloves from OR and they are a lifesaver. Or a hand saver, at least.

For anyone that is interested, the Capstones (at least in L and XL) are <$350 from OR on Amazon right now. Seems like a good deal for this time of year.

No skis to add.....I am set (but saving up for a pair of Renoun Atlas 80’s)...

At our shop’s tent sale yesterday, I unexpectedly got this, after the owner’s mother “made” me try it on. Fits great and matches a favorite pair of ski pants.....

With a vengeance today. New boots for my husband, new boots for me, and probably going to give in and get boot heaters. Already bought new skis for me, and Wendy's goggles (which were the only bargain, thank you, Wendy).
