I just remembered I didn't update the lenses in my goggles when I got a new prescription this Summer. Going to be a fun first day on Wednesday.

Oh yeah. I forgot to charge the Hotronics too.
Evidently you are supposed to charge them for 24-36 hours at the start of the season...

I was ready to turn the ignition in the car when I realized the poles were still hanging in the closet... So I went back inside and grabbed them. Other then that I remembered everything.

I forgot poles. Not MY poles... I was on a business trip, packed boots and slope appropriate clothing, rented skis at shop before the mountain but in my excitement to get out on snow after 19 months I didn't take poles. The rental shop attendant at Killington was fine letting me borrow a pair.

^^^renting poles is like $5 or less.

I usually forget to scrape the wax. All good after about half a run.

If it's one of my regular mountains they are usually cool with loaning a pair. That said I actually don't mind skiing without poles and do it on purpose once a month or so. If I forget my poles I usually take that as a sign that that's my day without poles.

I forget...
It was something.
This week I forgot my pass. Well, actually I grabbed what I though was my pass, but was a diamond stone on a cord. I got all the way to skiing sure that I had it. I can tell you diamond stones don't work as an rfid ski pass. The picture is wrong, it's all black.

I remembered to take everything with me, but I lost my phone during the day. I checked with Guest Services 3 times, no luck.
When I got home, I logged on to “Find My” and it was pinging at Guest Services, so I figured it was turned in.

Went back the next day, picked up phone. Lost my sunglasses, though.
