The bartender replies, "It's a moose."
The Scottish chap shouts back, "How big are the cats!?"
Hey I know I want to get into Backcountry skiing this 2020/21 winter but I don't know where to start financially. How much should I expect to spend on skis, skins, boots, bindings poles (am I missing anything?). I'm looking at avy courses and factoring that in. I just don't want to walk into a ski shop and be painfully underfunded and looking like the broke nearly homeless man I am.
Planned a trip to Mt Buller when the restriction eased off, but looking at the current situation I'm not sure. The mates are fairly committed and we are somewhat at the point of no return. Mt Buller is limiting its number of visitors to control the situation and as far as I know there are no cases that far outside the metropolitan area . what do y'all think?
The cats coming out of the bag at some point. I’m trying to “ease” people into to it now like “wellllll....my investments are eeking out just enough that I can get by on a low income and anything more will need to be supplemented with extra work.”
This lets people know why I can make such a “drastic” decision to quit my job (financial security) while barely letting them in. Many people will not even know how the math works and will not assume I have much but “it’s enough to get by”. Certainly not enough to be ENVIOUS of.
What’s your strategy? And please spare me the whole “I’m a wealth manager for one wealthy individual wink wink wink”. Kill me with that one...
Hey guys. I don’t see a lot of posts like this and I’m not here to pretend to be an expert. Obviously coke or any street drug is never 100% safe, but for those interested I thought I’d outline some tips for I guess.. safer use.
If you have the money for an 8ball you have the money for a 100.00 test kit. It doesn’t screen for everything but it checks most of the toxic shit and most include fent strips.
If it doesn’t look like coke it’s probably not:
I’ve seen pictures on here from what appears to be gravel, to piss yellow, to pure borax. It might get you high, it might not but you have no idea what’s in it.
Start slow on a new batch:
even if you have the same plug batches can vary greatly in purity and how much amphs are in them. A line of one batch does not equal a line of another. I’ve done my normal amount of more fire shit than I’ve expected and got knocked on my ass.
Saline nasal spray is great for this.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Solo skiing yes or no?
Personally I prefer doing it solo, i tried with a few friends but they irritate me and not to mention they want to do MY coke every 5 minutes rather than vibing and spacing them out lol
For context: I’m 3 weeks post op (patella autograft) and feeling pretty good all things considered. My injured leg looks awful and scrawny but I’m hobbling around without crutches and dont have too much pain.
That being said, my only real goal is to get back to skiing and the hope is that if I go hard in rehab and do strength training from now until Dec 2021, I’ll be set for years of skiing. I’ve read all about the people who have given up skiing because its a high ACL-tear risk sport... but I cant simply walk away.
Just wondering if any of yall have had successful returns to skiing after knee surgery. If so, how does it feel compared to pre-injury? Do you feel like its something you can do for years to come or will you have to give up sooner than you’d hope?
Any advice or personal stories are much appreciated!
I post this here and not a more general fitness forum because my main focus is skiing performance.
For context, I’m 28 and have been skiing for 5 years and I can pretty much ski anything on the mountain by now (out here in Utah/Rockies): glades/bowls/natural pipes/double-black runs etc.
While there is a lot more technique I could improve (I ski with really good people, and I can see every day how much better I can still get), a fear of getting hurt is a big mental block for me.
While I’m generally healthy, I’m mostly sedentary due to my job, and I also don’t have a very strong natural physique (fairly skinny, always had a problem gaining weight, not a lot of muscle mass).
I think if I could strengthen my overall conditioning I would feel a lot more comfortable with even more steep/technical terrain.
I weightlifted in college with good success, but an injury put a stop to most upper body progression and I lost interest after that. I’d like to keep skiing for a long time so I’m... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have only been skiing once on our honeymoon and had such a great time and always wanted to go again. 2019 we moved to the Rocky Mountain region, and this year we are financially stable enough to where I can get used ski gear to prepare for this winter, if we don't die from Covid anyway.
But yeah I am looking at the local buy and sell pages and other places, but I have no idea if any of the items are actually good deals or in good condition. Outside of just individually posting an item and asking for opinions, is there any sort of guide or...anything that I could read up on or whatever to get an idea of how to judge used gear?
Thanks in advance!
Early this morning i made the horrible mistake of mixing weed and coke, it was actually my first time using a bong. I was at a friend’s when it happened and i tripped so badly that i had absolutely zero control over my body. I was pacing all over the place, i could barely breathe, i was unbelievably fucked up. My friend got really fed up with me tripping and kicked me out, i had to stay in my truck for hours before i felt comfortable enough to drive home. I still felt high throughout the day and after realizing that my friend won’t talk to me anymore, i decided to quit both drugs. Was the weed maybe laced or is this something that happens when skiing and smoking?
Hmu my brothas and sistas
What annual gotos are looking ok right now? Rollins Pass? 4th of July Bowl? Jones Pass? Any beta?
I'm an 18 year old guy wanting to go skiing for the first time. I've always loved snow sports ever since I was a kid and now I finally have the ability to go (thanks to working my ass off). Only problem is , no one in my family likes snow or skiing so I'll have to go solo. I've never skied in my life so I'll have to take lessons , I've been searching for resorts for begginers but they are all 'family tickets'. What should I do? Should I just book a family ticket for one person and do the lessons they provide? Your guys advice will be really appreciated! I live in the UK by the way. Stay bless!
Moving soon from the east coast and am bringing skis; are there any ski mountains in Wisconsin? If so let me know your favorites
I can never stick to a single thing for too long, I keep jumping between googling thoughts, watching random videos, chatting with people.
Skiing all afternoon and tonight lost track of time boom I'm doing 2 fat juicy lines (because fuck both of them), then I look at the time and it's late as fuck. Work tomorrow quickest way to come down without access to a dealer. Much love people happy skiing
Shane perfectly encapsulates what its like to go skiing for the first time. Skiing culture is so gay for newbies (same with boating culture). They judge you for not being an expert from the moment you put on the skis. All the workers on the mountain are either 16 year old part time jobbers or 40 year olds who suck at life so much that they have to work at a ski resort to make a living. The regulars are all rich, entitled douchebags who offer no help to new skiiers but still get annoyed if a newbie happens to get in their way. My first time skiing, I threw myself down the mountain until I learned and was able to go down without falling before the end of the day (humble brag). The second time I went, I was much better but was still being judged by regulars for not being on their level.
In conclusion, skiing is the most retarded gay hobby. It sucks for anyone trying to ski for the first time as an adult who wasn't rich and entitled enough to learn as a kid.
Anyone else quit menthol ciggies and picked up “Juuling” and enjoy skiing w/juuling more than skiing w/a minty stogie?... asking for a friend... (<<)... (>>)... (<_<).
Since my other post picked up some traction and seemed to help people I figured I’d make another one expanding upon it. I’ll iterate that neither coke nor any other street drug is 100% safe, and these are simply tips for more safe use. I have no issue with those who go at it with a devil may care attitude, been there myself Before, just trying to help out 🙏
If you have the money for an 8ball you have the money for 100.00 testing kit. These aren’t completely fool proof, but they’ll usually tell you if there’s anything really nasty in it. They also usuallyInclude fent strips, but keep in mind that lidocaine which is a harmless cut, in many batches, sparks a false positive for fent. If it feels like it’s cut with opiates go slow or ditch it entirely.

My brother and I released our first app "Slope Legends" to the play store around a month ago and it's been an interesting journey. We had never created a full game before this and mainly had messed around with a few small projects and so it was a fun challenge to get the game on the play store.
Currently we are sitting at an average of 5 star reviews with over 100+ downloads, which is when I quickly realised the hardest part of making a game is getting others to play it!
Its a procedurally generated downhill skiing game that can be quite addictive. All music is composed by myself and I intended it to be as relaxing as possible, whilst also soothing enough to heard over and over again!
Would love for you guys to check it out and any feedback or questions is always welcomed!
I currently have the opportunity to move anywhere in the U.S. I would like somewhere that is easy to access back country and resorts. Preferably one of the less popular resorts. I am thinking Big Sky, Colorado, or Washington somewhere.
Anyone loving where they are living?
Hey! Anyone know any 14ers that are still holding good enough snow for (at least close to a) continuous decent? Was considering Cross Couloir but it seems runneled and a little late. Thanks!
I only sniffed around a 0.2-0.3 today (I’m new to the packet) I have take a zopiclone to chill me out. Usually I’ll just take some benzos but I don’t have any. What are the dos and donts when it comes to skiing like mixing etc cos sometimes I fuck with opioids too. And where does that achy chest feeling come from because I used to get it from when I used to smoke meth
I'm a semi-noob when it comes to coke (although my plug is fire, from what I heard about him), meaning I have kind of a difficult time specially in breaking the big rock (I always try with my credit card but still, i can't transform the rock into powder, and I absolutely prefer to snort it than to put it in my gums) and in snorting it (i always use a rolled money note, but cant quite roll it properly, and it always gets kind of wet and gumpy, but the one time i used a plastic straw, it worked like magic).
Probably there are a lot more tips that you, experienced user, can teach me. I have about 1g of 99%, will start to do it solo in like half an hour or so (super open to chat live, I'm also fluent in Portuguese and Spanish). PLEASE TEACH ME TO DO IT LIKE IN THE MOVIES (a Cocaine 102 guide would be perfect!)
