1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Foo goes skiing. Sartorial disaster?

    Drove through Vail on my x-country trip this past summer. So damned nice.

    Enjoy it man.

    I must admit, I dont mind seeing the ladies fall. Especially the boarders. When they bend over, it's crack city. I'm taking the day off to tomorrow to board at Northstar. About fucking time. Finally get to put the season pass to use

    Californians and Texans make up probably more than half of the tourist revenue and property taxes in Colorado :)

    Don't agree on the cotton thing. I'm most comfy in a cotton waffle-knit. Poly/synthetics doesnt feel any better.

    Warmth is a personal thing. I hope as an easterner he's got some cold tolerance. As a former Cali and Texan resident, my get up was long sleeve base, fleece vest, and a standard shell. Kept me perfectly warm for the 2 seasons skiing Summit Co as a resident.

    Ski socks and other "activity-specific" socks are quite superfluous. Any pair of wool socks will do....thickness dependant on one's footwear

    yeah me too. and i think i can honestly say that i never once worried about my gloves picking up a hint of color in my jacket. but maybe that's my shortcoming.

    When you think you're going to suck at doing something, you might as well have fun dressing up for it.

    Tahoe snow is the worst on earth. Sierra cement. Those promo pics of people doing figure 8s in champagne powder are a joke. That happens like once a decade and it's over within two hours of the snowfall.

    Colo and Utah kick ass by comparison.

    Too much talk about actual skiing in this thread. Tone it down.

    I think all that stuff has been taken care of by others.
