  1. [TR] This Be the Place - FAWK 2/16/2008

    Wow, glad to hear everyone made it through OK. It would have sucked to have to dig, it would've sucked even more to have to dig in the dark. Good thinking on the cliff bands, thats been something I've been trying to pay more attention to this season.....whats my runout.... Isn't there some kind of deposit on Helis-skiers, like an environmental fee, sureley you should get somthing back for bringing that back out of the backcountry.

  3. correct length for tele skis?

    I picked up a pair of G3 Barons early this season, @ 184cm. I'm the same height & weight as you. They were an upgrade from my tiny Volkls, and what an amazing upgrade it was. Might want to go for the next size down (what is it, 177?) for a little bit smaller turns. Super fun ski.

  5. Keiths Hut Avalanche

    Well, I guess I'll be playing in my kayak until this whole slide of death fest calms down a bit. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around just how big the Keiths Hut slide was...wild.

  7. Looking for a first aid course? Group Pricing Deal

    Cool, thanks for the tip, I always forget about that site.
  8. Hi Folks. I'm looking for some other people in the Vancouver area to go in on a group purchase for the Slipstream "Advanced Wilderness First Aid Course", an 80hr intensive first aid course. Looking to purchase sometime Feb - early March. Here is the pricing breakdown from their website: "Purchase group packages of Wilderness First Aid training vouchers and save! Group Package EWFA Price* AWFA Price* 3-pack $962 $1782 6-pack $1798 $3247 10-pack $2753 $4992 * EWFA = 40-hour Essential Wilderness First Aid course * AWFA = 80-hour Advanced Wilderness First Aid course * All prices are subject to GST Group vouchers can be used for registration within one year of the issue date. Unused vouchers can be renewed on the expiry date by paying any difference in price between the amount they were purchased for and the current pricing for a similar group package." A link to the course description: Slipstream Advanced Wilderness First Aid The voucher can be USED AT ANY TIME within 12 months of purchase, so we would not have to all be taking the same course dates. This will make it far easier to organize within a group, as it is a purchasing group, not a course group. If I can find 2 more people it will save us: $632 - $594 = $38. If I can find 5 more people it will save us: $632 - $541 = $91. Interested? get in contact with me......
  9. How soon to ski after broken leg?

    Hey matey, check out the book at MEC called "Injuries in Outdoor Sports". Obviously pay attention to your Dr, but this might have some info specifically pertaining to you. Rehab exercises and the like. I know that sometimes dealing with a Dr they might be thinking more about golf than skiing....
  10. How many days so far?

    20, 3 on the resort.
