Hey... on Hood not having one is considerd faux pas. In the spring/summer it looks like you've returned from the beach when you go out there.
I have contacted my lawyer.
True. I bought it at a thrift store, though. North Carolina plate "SKI BUM".
3) Your equipment is worth more than your car.
Yeah, but that's not saying much.
6) You have skied down a DC-area street on alpine gear before the plows arrived. You've then cursed the plows when they've arrived.
Most lately, last year, but on Nordic skis. And I was disappointed to see the plows ruin everything.
7) You keep your gear bag packed year round, just in case.

During summer: all you do is dream about snow, watch ski movies, Read old ski magazines, and Experiment with ways to ski in your bakyard, ie: astroturf, the orange snow fences, and other stuff.
bawalker, this is where I got my copy. I couldn't buy Blizzard of Ahhh's by itself and I had to buy 2 additional Greg Stump movies (Groove and License to Thrill). Not bad for $30 though.
Also, I requested the cheapest method for shipping which they said was 6-10 days (or something like that). I got it in 2 days.
Even though he was skiing on outdated equipment (by today's standards), I don't think I've ever seen a more graceful skier than Scott Schmidt.
Best line from Groove:
We waited out a late spring snowstorm at the Tsana Lodge, and then got the nugget we were looking for: total freedom, fresh powder and a helicopter with a great stereo.
Nice go-go dancing by Ace (Stump's SO) during the closing credits.
Best way to jump start a discussion.
Also fun to see which items get momentum behind them.
I have not watched Groove all the way through yet. I've actually watched Blizzard about 3 times and only made it halfway through Groove (I couldn't convince the wife to watch it with me).
That does sound like a great line though. I'll be on the lookout for it.
I've taken my skis to the Washington Monument in that mid-90's big dump and skied down that bump .... and Nordic skied as well ...
I jammed 5 pairs of skis in a 450 sq. foot studio and waxed them in my kitchen.
OK and the topper is I sold my apt. in DC and moved to Park City .... to ski almost every day!
You don't remember the plot to any movie in which a mountain is visable because you were
concentrating on picking out lines.
