Hey everyone, I'm a total Newb from NYC, but I got some friends who took me out to Blue Mountain in Pa and I fell in love. My friends go once a week and they say I picked it up pretty fast. I HAVE done my hw, and I know this season should just be on rentals, but I REALLY want to buy my own gear. We'll see if I can keep the fever down, lol. Have a great season people.
