      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Going to Alpental again thursday, 2-6 if anyone is headed there, lets hook up. I'll climb or ski anything also, if you prefer. Basically, I'm available (so far)!

Dave, I kind of fell down and got a little banged up at work yesterday, and the doc won't let me ski for a few days, but next week I should be good to go Tu or Weds.

 

Flame suit on, yes I am a little bit accident-prone. cry.gif

Actually the problem doesn't plague me when I am skiing, and no I don't wear a helmet skiing, the idea of doing so strikes me as ridiculous.

 

It's nice to see that candor will still get you laughed at here. I'm sure you are perfect. moon.gif

Yes, I was.

 

I see a considerable difference in the objective hazards associated with climbing vs. skiing, especially lift-serviced skiing.

yeah there are few trees while climbing that you might crush your skull on..

 

i have gotten about 3 concussions while "lift" serve skiing and none while b/c and none while climbing.....

 

i dont see the logic?!

I don't do a lot of skiing in the treez, and rarely fall down. Never really lose control, and tend to make some turns rather than just point them down the hill. Only reason I personally would wear one is to protect against out of control snowboarders.

 

Now on Rando gear, well, that's another story.... tongue.gif

THey are warm and cozy though. Although $120 is a lot to pay for a hat!

 

They (ski lids) apparently aren't that effective over 12mph!

 

That said, I wear mine all the time at the hill. Maybe it will reduce the brain injury...

Around the office....? You mean the stage, late into the second really long day in a row, after not getting any sleep last weekend in Salt Lake?

 

Oh, I can only dream that someday I will be half as perfect as you!

 

I think people who think they need helmets at the ski area may really need lessons on how to ski.

And people who wear seatbelts need driving lessons? rolleyes.gif

Maybe they just feel better wearing them.

 

What evidence do you have to support that helmets are not a good idea? Is there something wrong with being safer?

 

Why is everyone so grumpy today???

Ha! Follow me into the trees, follow me down the steeps.

 

I know too many people who who received head injuries w/o a helmet skiing and now they can't do shit. My head pays my salary, so I'm not messing around.

come off it, allison - you already know you're perfect. rolleyes2.gif yet another discussion i have to put a stop to with you because you're so disrespectful of anyone's opinion but your own. at least now i don't have to worry about seeing you anywhere near the terrain i like to ski.

Yah, I tend to skip the green runs altogether.

 

Hey, anyone besides the lawgoddess want to go thrash around on the ice with me on Wednesday? Anywhere at Snoqrummy is fine, I have a pass thing for there. I ski regular alpine gear but do not begrudge AT or pinheads!
