Howdy. I'm new to the board but have been reading form it for a while now. I'm a local to HV but I don't live there most of the year. I'm a skier and a rider. Ski mostly cause I like doing freestyle in my free time but have fallen back a bit form specializing in it and do more all-mountain riding and love to take trips to Vermont. Starting riding before skiing, then stopped for a while and only did it off and on, but now jumped back into it again and do a lot better. In the summer months I rode bike and occasionally go to a bmx track and I also like hiking and camping. As of the past year, I started building furniture out of old skis and am soon to start building a houses worth of furniture for when I am on my own completely. So once I get a few more pieces under my belt, I can post a list of what all I can make and will be taking orders if anyone would like anything made.

Any time I get any real info from HV I will be sure to tell cause I won't only the best for my favorite resort.

Does straight shot refer to your skiing or drinking style???? Welcome to the site! You'll find us to be a (uh-hum) vocal lot and lots of fun as well. Crush has it right, it is the best!

As regular to HV, Straight Shot refers to the old slope name of what is now Comet on the Summit side of the mtn. It is a long time favorite name because nobody who really skis at HV calls Comet Comet, they call it Straight Shot. I also happen to have the original trail sign in the rear window of my car and drive around with it there with great pride. I was even spotted on the turnpike before by other HV natives because I had the sign in my window. One thing though about my drinking style, Jack Daniels taken "straight" on a "straight" ski in the form of a shot ski is my favored way, but we have made a list of shots for each trail sign (green circle, blue square, black diamond).
