  1. Has anyone tried renting for a season? Is that a reasonable approach to learn what I want to buy? Experticity is a vendor for pro deals. I qualified both as an EpicSki ambassador and because of my job as a "consumer electronics" manufacturer.
  2. Ever show on Experticity / Promotive? There are a few bike manufacturers on there. Lapierre, Raleigh, and BH for example. I don't know anything about the brands, but discounts are 30-50% off MSRP.
  3. Let me know what you find. I'm just about starting from scratch but need a summer activity to give me some regular exercise.
  4. Define reasonably cheap and good components. I understand the mountain biking gear makes ski gear look cheap. But at least you're not buying lift tickets? Oh wait... downhill.
  5. I'm more amazed that the anchors weren't quick enough to laugh and turn it into a comedy routine. This could have been spun for fun.
  6. Oh, sell signs to a out-of-bounds ski section. That is not condoning it or anything.
  7. It is no secret that I need a summer sport. One to be passionate about. I enjoy kayaking, but I just don't have the craving to do it every day like I do with skiing. I know several diehard skiers who are equally if not more passionate about mountain biking. How do you get started? We could use a guide for beginners. It would make a great article to build out. Start with suggestions of lessons or how to learn, include a guide to beginner, intermediate, and advanced gear you will need. A gear buyers guide would be great. I don't know enough about the sport to even list the questions I would need to ask.
  8. Wait. This is Loon? Unbelievable. I expect that posh stuff in Vermont, but have been proud of it being missing in the Granite State.
  9. We've all seen the uproar over the United passenger who was violently dragged off the flight. Now the latest is that apparently you get booted from Delta if you have to urgently use the bathroom after waiting on the tarmac for a half hour.
  10. Has anyone tried "speed flying" which looks to be parasailing with skis on? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_flying I saw this sport being done all over the Alps. I am curious if it exists anywhere in the Northeast.
  11. I don't play but have always thought this is a good sport for an upper middle class white guy to learn. Any tips on how to approach this? Maybe we need a Golfing on the Cheap calendar.
  12. Take me with you? There is a Crotched crew here who would love to see what you offer. Are the West Ledges the stuff down from Moon Walk to Milky Way? I've taken a quick look at it from both sides, but never jumped it. I usually am not there in daylight with someone willing to try it out.
  13. I had similar thoughts about the shapes, but lack the artistic skills to execute on them. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

  15. Yeah, that pic gave me flashbacks. I've had some great nights in the deep snow at Crotched. It's a really special place to ski in a snowstorm. I can work a full day, get there in mid-afternoon so I get couple hours in the glade, and stay into the evening. There will be untracked all night.
  16. Welcome to the dark side. I'm glad you could join us!
  17. I'm torn on whether the abbreviation should be NMS or NEMS. Discuss.
  18. No, I'll leave that for the developers. I was using the beta iOS app.
  19. Quoted. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  20. Traffic may impact the backend but not the app. It's possible his backend is overloaded but that should show on the web page too. Right now we're hosted in the cloud and I plan to stay that way. Even if I choose to self host it will be in the cloud. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  21. Copy and paste? I can look later when I'm at my laptop. I may turn off the blog feature down the road if it doesn't gain traction. There is no cost but I want to give the appearance of a vibrant community. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  22. Could be an old app. Could be an inferior backend. It's amazing what active development can do. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
