I got green pants. I'll vouch for how rad they make you look. Mine aren't like green though; that would up the rad factor by about 50%.

Even if we got 3 feet, no resort would be open to ride. I'll take the nice warm weather until mid November.

Sooner it cools off, the sooner we're riding. While October 6 is still too early no matter what, I've been riding in SE Michigan as early as November 17. As long as temps have been cold enough that the ground isn't still too warm, these hills can blow enough snow to open in under a week.

Alright, thanks guys. I would like to match the base of my evo or my gloves http://i.pgcdn.com/pi/91/05/20/910520284_640.jpg
Has anyone ever had sessions achilles pants? I love the color of them, but they have mixed reviews on dogfunk. I like my burton cargo pants I have now, but they don't have those in bright green.

Chartreuse?
Man, It's been a while since I've heard the word chartreuse used. Your right though, they are extremely bright. Seems that there are some durability issues with them and they aren't very breathable. It seems that burton doesn't like to make bright colored pants, in fact not many do make lime green pants that I like.
