  1. Cutler River Drainage closed. " Pinkham Notch parking lot will be closed to the public, with both the closure orders enforced with fines and even possible jail time. Please do your part and stay near home, hike in the woods, run a new route, or take up that project you’ve been putting off. The mountains have been around for a long time and will be here when life returns to normal. Thanks again for your cooperation as we navigate these rough waters." https://mountwashingtonavalanchecenter.org/end-of-the-season-and-closures/
  2. Yeah, I just read that earlier. It's funny though, it's one of the only apps I actually pay a subscription for and I just cancelled it about 2 weeks ago because I wasn't loving it as much lately. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  3. From my "look back at this day" reminders on my phone. 3 years ago today. Kicking Horse
  4. The full podcast is worth a listen. I had a little bit of issue with Andrew and others doing the podcast from up at Hojos while telling other people they shouldn't be there. But they did seem to have some self-awareness about that. The info from the MWAC snow ranger was the real value. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  5. Pretty interesting time lapse from Loveland https://theknow.denverpost.com/2020/03/27/time-lapse-loveland-uphill-skiing-coronavirus/236305/ Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  6. Loon did this also. Not to detract from their generousity, but it would be pretty obnoxious if they didn't. These resorts had a ton of food stock on hand for the planned rest of the season. Giving it out to thier employees was a pretty easy way to do the right thing. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  7. Yikes! There's nothing funny about that Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  8. Every line in this clip is out of this world!! 4:00 are you kidding me!?!? It's pretty amazing how dominant the French are at big mountain skiing and riding. Between Xavier and Candid they are untouchable.
  9. Yes, got that too. After talking with@fcksummer I just deleted the app. When I deleted, I got redirected to Tapatalk. I'm posting from that app right now (for the first time) and it seems to be working well. Sent from my moto z4 using Tapatalk
  10. The real killer for me was a trip to Steamboat. We spent almost a year planning this trip with our 3 nephews. With the three of them heading in different directions for colleges and military this year, this was likely to be the last time we could all do a big snowboarding trip together. All the boards are still packed up the travel bags and are going to be a reminder for awhile. Other stuff: We had Ikon passes and were planning to use all our SR and Loon days in the spring. The Wildcat day(s) mentioned above. Those great long afternoon sunny spring skiing days and tailgating.
  11. Yup. - My bike is a 29er in a size L. Geometry wise it's towards the XC side of the spectrum. Climbs like a goat! But it can still handle the descent well. - Her bike is a 27.5 wheel in a size M. Geometry is more slack. Frigging bombs on the downhill! More of a challenge to climb with. Between the two you'd get a good feel for the range of rides that are out there.
  12. Just as an example. I spent 2 minutes to do a filtered search on PinkBike. Within ~20miles from you there are 24 nice used bikes for sale between $1500 - $3000. A couple of these are potentially perfect. https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/list/?lat=42.2243&lng=-71.0866&distance=20&category=2,75&price=1500..3000&framesize=16,19,24,25,26,28,29,23,27,34,35,36,30,31,47
  13. Haven't had those conditions in a while . Like your Ski logiks
  14. ^What he said^. In the past 2 years I've bought 2 really sweet used bikes through PinkBike. Wife's was $2,100 mine was $2,900. Mine was in almost new condition and would have been ~$7k new. Both bikes have been perfect. No issues with them been used. The downside from buying that way is that you have to have a pretty good understanding of what you want. Everything from size to geometry etc. That's tricky when you're new to the sport. Many shops have a demo fleet so you can try bikes for a day as a reasonable rate. They'll usually apply demo/rental costs towards a purchase. It's best to do this at a shop that has trails right there. The shop at Kingdom Trails is a great example. I demoed a bike through them a few years ago. It was a $5k bike that I thought I wanted. Spending a day on it convinced me otherwise and saved me from a big mistake. Also, NEMBA usually organizes a few demo days around New England. Shops show up at the trailhead with a fleet of bikes to try. You're welcome to take our bikes out any time.
