    Bet Briggs and Monique are already working on it. Yikes, that's a loaded thought. Maybe I should just take over. Needed a new job anyway.

    At last year's Mother's Day event @Philpug said that Epicski would not be around in a year. At the time I thought it was the bourbon talking, but looks like he called it!

    WOW !

    While I will miss Epic, I think the writing was on the wall in the summer of '15.
    Thank you @Tricia and @Philpug for starting this forum and your vision to keep the ski stoke alive !

    RIP epic, it's going to be a "pug day from this day forward :wag:

    We didn't start Pugski, you guys did. We just are stewards. From the Staffing Changes thread on Epic, you guys came up with the name, Pugski.com, you found and bought the URL. You funded the site and built it for us. If MNC handled that any ...well...they are making United Airlines look smart.

    It just occurred to me that you and @Uncle Louie and @SugarCube were the first "internet" people I skied with. That was a bit ago....

    Learning only an hour ago, I went over to Epic for a nostalgic view, however short, of my (and Betsy's) forum experience since 2006. I feel easy about letting go of all of that site save for the most important - the lasting relationships made that can't be deleted by an insensitive few. Long live friendships owed to a once epic community - and here we continue.
