What they ^ said. Strictly between bear and summit, go with the latter. I think summit run is listed as blue ONLY because of two "slightly" steeper parts. Otherwise, it's very low-intermediate....

Hey, all!!

Thanks for all the replies. First, as others have said, the board, by design, is not made for carving. I have discussed this with instructors and others and all gave the same opinion....

That's very cool stuff. Attending a meeting is mandatory and I would be non-existent after that. SD is too far away.

F**king drama queens here!! FR4NKY, glad you could see the simple comment for what it was. Thank you. Can't use the word "military" without someone making it about liberal/conservative political BS....

Ugh!! No military discount on mammoth lodging :-(

This year just got more expensive. Last year I stayed twice (juniper & village). Got a discount that was better than AAA. Apparently they did away with it. Looks like I'll have to sign up for AAA...

I've been a cop for 20 years so I wouldn't have cared. Given what Dorner was capable of, I would have had my weapon at the ready, too. Hopefully it's all over.

What's worse is after waiting all that time in line, mine was the first vehicle they didn't search when it opened back up. Ha!! Waited in line 2 hours just to be sent on my way.

The conditions today & yesterday were awesome. Taking three hours to get down the mountain did suck though. I got stuck in traffic while they searched every vehicle.

Mine was actually the coccyx which contains nerves. No treatment other than drugs and careful sitting. I now ride with a tailbone protector. It's been a year & I do feel it sometimes even now.

I can't say enough about lessons. I did private lessons ($100 each time) twice, including last year's catastrophe. Still, money well spent and certainly other injuries were prevented.
