pennyring Last day of the season at Stevens is tomorrow, and I *might* have a friend!!!!! I don't think he'll crochet, but I know he shreds.

I'm just learning and I've never been off the greens. He's going to make me do a Blue, I know it. Skeered.

Argo Id wait up for a couple laps with most people from the forum if they wanted to ride vail. Unless it's a pow day then I don't even wait for my wife......

ThredJack I only really have one riding buddy, and that's EatRideSleep. Well I only rode with her once, but I'm counting her as a riding buddy, so I don't look like a total loser with no friends.

f00bar Unless we get some knit or crocheted yoga pants I'm a bit worried from this point on.

It reminds me of last night at little league practice when the coached asked about team names and for some reason they all screamed The Rainbow Unicorns. The coaches face was priceless, though we know someone around here would have loved it.

pennyring That is a rad scarf. I'm super impressed. She has mad skills.

I started crocheting when I started snowboarding (February), so I'm not great at either yet, just enthusiastic.

This is the first blanket I made. It was for the previously mentioned girlfriend who just popped out a kid.

Super stoked this is now knitting/crochet chat!!

When I saw my daughter skiing like that, I knew it was time to get her riding. She says she will never ski again.

BTW, she says crocheting sucks and that knitting is king. Here's a scarf she made last season. Hard to see in the pic but when you look at it straight on all you see are lines. Look at it from an angle and you see the nose grab.

Hell, even the skiers in my group call them zombies.

I'm with you!! Can't understand that at all. Skiing must be as boring as it looks if they're over n done with it for the day by lunchtime.

They could have been riding down an escalator in any mall in America for all the enthusiasm on their faces.

(...I usually have a half terrified, half shit eatin' grin on my face whenever I'm riding!)

Big Foot In PA I used to ride with a solid group of friends I've been riding with since middle school. I moved to CO two years ago with my ex-GF and I taught her how to ride when we got here. Been riding with her until halfway through this season when we broke up. Since being single I've had the good fortune of meeting some girls in Denver that are really good riders (better than my ex, who was actually really good for a girl). Other than that I mostly go alone, or occasionally with my friends who ski.
