    Ski buying advice please - Echo 8, Cloud 9, Cloud 11?

    I used to ski on a Rossignol Echo 8 163. I loved them, they were like a pretty, more relaxed race ski but could still hold their own. Prior to that I was racing on a Rossignol 9SL. I’m just returning to skiing after injury now, I’ve had a pregnancy, baby, various fertility treatments...

    Question: Looking for new skis

    I am 59 years old, 5 ft 8 inches and 135-140 lbs. I have skied since childhood and ski almost everything, although I really struggle on ice and am less confident on really steep terrain. I am not a fast skier, I love bumps and I like making lots of tight turns. I mostly ski at Killington, VT...

    Buying first Alpine Touring bindings! Advice please!

    Hi! I am pretty new to the world of backcountry skiing, and am buying my first pair of AT bindings. I have the K2 Talkback 88 153cm and Scarpa Gea boots (size 24, BSL 280). I am looking for something on the lower price end (so most likely frame bindings, as opposed to tech bindings). Any...

    Help Needed: Four weeks, small(-ish) budget, spring skiing?

    Hi there! I've skulked around these parts for a long time, but find myself with a question (well, several): I don't know how to drive, have a budget that's a hair over a modest---I'm loath to call it comfortable---and have so much vacation time built up that they're threatening to start paying...

    Help Needed: Action to save a dog from a bad owner

    I figured I'd try asking for advice here since I know a lot of you have doggies. Sorry this is so long, I just feel like I'm going insane and wanted to talk about it. I moved into a place with my cousin last month. He has a 3 year old shepherd dog. She's a bit reserved, but seemed nice enough...
