My names Devon. I've been skiing for nine years off and on, at lost valley because I'm cheap and its close. I currently don't own ski's because basketball coaches prohibit outside sports during the season. So I quit basketball.

My name is Dave, been free-heelin since the mid-1970s. Used to get tix yanked regularly at Stowe, Mad R etc for "illegal skiing on XC gear."

STill get tix yanked for OOB silliness. Some patrollers, they got no sense of humor.

Mostly ski true backcountry (Camden Hills, northern White Mts), no lifts no tix no worries. Ok, maybe we worry about getting back to the car after dark....

Favorite backcountry trip: goin up to Zealand Falls Hut in Pemi wildOrness. Wicked nice glades up there in an old burned-over area.

My tele gear, (like its owner) is aged but solid: 1st gen Scarpa T2, Voile, Black Diamond and Rottefella binders, Karhu Tele Supreme 203s (one of the first single-camber tele boards, they still work damn good) Karhu ATS metal edge tourers @ 200 cm, Fischer GTS 200s and Karhu Outbound 190s...plus a schweet pair of old Dynastar 203s for slicing up the piste. Recently started wearing a brain bucket after I stuffed it bad and my noggin ended up 1" from a Very Large Spruce.

My names Garrett, and I've been skiing since I was 4, teleing for a few years now. I moved out to Utah last year and skied at Alta and Snowbird. I also worked for backcountry.com, which gave me access to any ski resort in Utah. We took a trip out to Lake Tahoe for the best skiing I've ever had. 7 ft of snow! Now Im back in Maine and Im going to get a pass at Sunday River and Sugarloaf. I also ski patrol, so you might see me doing that at Lost Valley or Shawnee Peak. I dont pull passes, so don't worry.

I sold a lot of my good tele gear last year and now Im left with, G3 bindings, t1 boots, and Fischer Prohete 106 underfoot skis. I might pick up some BD Justices soon, they were my favorite out in Utah.

Looking forward to great year!

I snowboarded at Lost Valley a few years ago, then skied on rentals at Sunday River for winter two years ago. I ended up having zero time last year to ski, but this year I hope to get up there some more.

Any tips? I'll probably get stuff at a ski swap this year.

Use to snowboard when I was a teenager. Busted my @$$ hard when I was 20 on a double jump in 2002 that I was obviously un-prepared for. It took me out for while, nothing really serious but I did need minor surgery on my tailbone area a few years later that was likely related. I haven't been back since, but I would like to. I just haven't been able to come up with the cash to buy some equipment between all my other hobbies. I use to snowboard at Ticomb Hill & Sugarloaf, and have also rode sunday river a few times.

Hello everybody. My name is John. I try to telemark sometimes.

"Hello John".

I picked up a set of NTN bindings and Crispi Evo boots late last season. I skied on them a few times before the season totally ended. Mounted on Rossi Bandit B2 176cm.
