  1. Baby powder won't solve the smell issue. Forgot to mention that it will create a different smell issue (I don't care for baby powder smell). Baby powder is just for lubricating your foot so it can slide into the liner and also protects during the day against blisters. If your socks are basically panty hose then barefoot probably won't solve your issue. If you have "thin" socks, then it may because it did for me.
  2. Try pulling the liners out and giving them a good scrub on the inside with soap and a little water. You need to kill the bacteria in there. Also consider skiing with no socks. It sounds like your feet are sweating in the boots. No socks will help. I ski with no socks and put some baby powder in the liner before sliding my foot inside. My feet are warmer now because I don't sweat and the sweat doesn't cool down during breaks/lift rides.
  3. @CannonballerI am new to fat biking. What tire pressure would you have on a trail like the pictures above?
  4. I'm impressed you have already been out 18 times.
  5. Sounds like general consensus is: Pros: Tailgating Cons: Boot up at your car. Has anyone been to Wildcat? In all prior years the concrete ramp at Wildcat from parking lot to base area has been treacherous with shoes on never mind ski boots.
  6. Seeing this list really proves how bad the opening effort is at many mountains. Right now I feel duped buying an Epic Northeast Pass with the goal of skiing Wildcat.
  7. I am curious what mountain lodge and parking is like at everyone's mountain. Cannon has an OK description of what is allowed but Wildcat's website seems to be empty of information. A boots on the ground description for any mountain of what things are like would be helpful. On the lodge side, what is lodge access like? Can you boot up inside? Take a warm up break inside? Buy beer and drink it inside? Inside bathrooms or not? On the parking lot side, does someone scan you to get into the parking lot? Tailgating ok? Cooking with propane/other ok?
  8. I agree. But from the mountain's point of view they have every incentive to be militant on this rule so that a single customer does not shut down the mountain for weeks.
  9. This is cool. I had no idea this existed. Which weather station did you buy? Maybe I can convince the in-laws to put one on their condo in downtown North Conway.
  10. Sweet pictures. The .bmp pictures needed to be downloaded for me to see them but they work when opened.
  11. @Cannonballer I think you convinced me to buy my Wildcat (Epic Northeast) now rather than wait. Saw this posted about opening of an Australian Epic resort: https://www.epicaustraliapass.com.au/passes/we-are-epic-together Not sure how much of this will happen here this winter.
  12. I think it is cool. I am looking at it on my computer and the tweets take up a lot of room. Maybe a little less for those? I value tweets pretty low, so maybe just me. How about the uphill policy being shown on each mountain guide? What about putting open vs closed trails on the guide like how you auto-update the weather? That way people who like to travel to different mountains don't have to go to a bunch of different mountain websites.
  13. I skinned Wildcat today. Probably 40 cars in the lot. Snow is in great shape.
