That's not true. Sometimes I need someone in a flourescent colored coat flapping their arms like a wild chicken to make me commit. Good luck in your search for deep pow pow.

what happened to that rope tow for the terrain park that was supposed to be installed _last_ year ? not that i care about using it, but if it gets a few people off the orange lift that would be good.

Hey Tucker how you doin whend you get outta jail ??? I been working on that beer remote you mentioned all summer, not quite ready yet but making good progress. Looks like tline also put some new blocks under the collapsed part of the deck so they won't have to waste snow filling in the hole. Also going to be a bomber year for snow starting early, freshies three days each week, timed to fall right after they park the groomers. Seriusly tho maybe someone who LIVES down there might snoop around and get some info......

New paint in the Pub. They had the place tore up this weekend and dropcloths everywhere. Maybe cold draft beer. I'm tired of warm draft. The sno sticks that were living beside the maintainence building have gone away. Rumor is that they have a new home on sally.
So, Tucker, where will home be this winter?

A winter plan is critical in order to maximize the potential for pow days...

I've decided that instead of retiring when I'm to old to hike, shroup the fat, and drop big lines that I'm going to retire about two months every year each winter...

Jimmy, while in Jail ( ;\) )I had time to formulate an anticipatingly epic pow plan for this winter...After five years of working full time at the T-slime and never have been served a beer I am steppin' down...sure I'll ride with the snowboard team when I'm around and maybe work some patrol here and there, but I will no longer be ridin' the groomed terrain on powder days...

I'm going to keep on designing/building houses in the valley till about January...then I'm drivin the "pow truck" (bug shield is on order) out to Driggs for some deep pow samples at the Gee and lots'o' steep and deep backcountry at the pass and in the tetons until about Mid-March...then I'm coming back to the valley to enjoy some spring skiing and get a tan on some slow lifts...

then it is back to designing/building quality homes for my company...APD Construction LLC...which by the way stands for Advancement for Powder Days...because a business plan is critical for any successful business.

Great Plan!

Sadly my job doesn't allow that but I plan to retire for real by the 08-09 season. \:\)

Yeah, the big R plan. Got mine too. I plan on doing a lot of pow days when I do. I'm with you Denis. I may do the R in 08, but more likely in 09. The Mrs wants to go 4 more so I probably won't wait for her and will be skiing solo on weekdays for a couple of winters. I'm like a kid at Christmas in anticipation!

Dang, Denis, congrats! Next to turning 21, retirement might be the greatest day of your life! (well, except for that "marriage" and "children" stuff) People ask what I want to do for a career and I say "retire." Apparently some people think that's not a good answer.

Got any plans apart from skiing yet?

I saw the rope tow running at the end of last season.
