    Just wanted to make a quick introduction.

    I worked in a Ski Shop in Maine for a while doing mountings and boot fits. My girlfriend broke her C2 vertebrae skiing in Slovenia so we ended up in San Diego at a hospital here for her rehab. Good news is... we are leaving in a few hours to move to Fort Collins, CO. I know it's not necessarily a ski town, but REALLY excited to get back on the hill.

    Look forward to interacting with you all!

    Welcome!

    How was the skiing in Slovenia?

    Enjoy Fort Collins. Going to school, working, or a combination there of?

    Welcome, I'm just a bit south of Ft. Collins in Lafayette. I haven't spent much time in Ft. Collins but from what I know it is a great city.

    I spent some time in a wind tunnel in Fort Collins. I was the 'experiment'; testing tucks and DH suits and other gear.

    Welcome! Any move closer to snow is a good one.

    Thanks. My shop used to have someones account logged in on the computer so we would browse through all the time but never registered one of my own.

    Main purpose pf registering was to do some research while deciding which pass to get for the upcoming season.

    Welcome! I hope your girlfriend has recovered, or is at least well on her way.
