10/10/2013 2:46:02 PM Pre-Season games have started, time to start talking about the upcoming season!   With Derek Rose coming back, will the Bulls give the Heat a run for the East? Will Brooklyn's improvements make them a challenger?   With Dwight Howard going to Houston to join James Harden, will that make them the team to beat in the West? Or will the Thunder and Spurs still be on top?   I'm a Mavs fan...I know pre-season games don't count, but I see that Monta Ellis is working on getting assists, and not just shooting the rock. If that continues, and with the combination of Jose Calderone in the backcourt, it looks like there will be a lot of ball sharing, setting up for easy shots for everyone. I think their offense whould be fine. But, I'm concerned about their defense. Also, I think they're weak at the center position with Samuel Dalembert as the starter. Hopefully, they'll be able to trade up to a better center and make a run for the playoffs.
5/14/2013 4:25:06 PM I'll be going to Park City for week during the summer and will be visiting Salt Lake City during the week as well. What are some "must eat" places around there? We will have small children with us and we're not looking for the ultra exclusive places. Just family-friendly places that locals like to go to. Or iconic places that tourists must try when they're there (like a Carnegie's Deli when in NYC, Voodoo Donuts when in Portland, Boudin Sourdough when in SF, etc.). Oh, and we're not into wine/alcohol. Thanks for any input!
11/8/2012 12:09:36 PM I remember seeing a site a few years back that's similar to Whiskey Militiia and Steep&Cheap, but specialize in outdoor stuff for kids. I can't seem to find it now. Anybody know of a site like that?
10/18/2012 11:24:08 AM Has anybody stayed here before? How long is the drive to Heavenly's NV base lodge in the winter? Is there a shuttle that takes people from the resort to the lifts?
8/16/2012 10:55:40 AM I currently have the Flow Quattro and I like the ability to strap in quickly and go down the hill. I sometimes have problems kicking my foot in hard enough so the boot back will get in the way of the highback while lifting to lock in.   So, I'm looking to get a new pair of bindings (espeically since I'm near the 3000 pt mark for free bindings), and would like to stick with rear-entry. Which rear-entry bindings are the best in your experience between the Flow NXT AT, GNU Street, or K2 Cinch CTS/CTC. Please comment on weight, ease of entry, responsiveness, stiffness, adjustability, etc. I'm leaning toward the GNU right now, but I can't find enough reviews to be fully convinced. Thanks!
7/26/2012 4:09:48 PM I've seen some great pictures taken by the SS/tru members and thought some of you might have more knowledge in this and give me some insight.   I'm looking for a compact camera that can take pictures while shooting videos. Either a point-and-shoot type or a compact system camera. I'd like fast auto-focus so I can take pictures without a lag. My wife likes to take videos of my kids and sometimes want still shots while she does that. So, being able to do both at the same time with the same camera is a must.   I have a Canon SLR, but it's not the most portable. I'd like something that I can put in a pocket and take pictures while on vacation or just out hiking or doing things where lugging a SLR around is not ideal. The camera is mostly for my wife, and she doesn't want anything bulky or too complicated to use.   I've looked at the Nikon 1 J1 and the Sony DSC-RX100. Are there others that I should consider? Anything cheaper? Thanks.
1/25/2012 11:28:02 AM You can get a free lift ticket to Canyons Resort, Park City Mountain Resort or Deer Valley Resort if you fly into SLO the same day. See details and black out dates here:   http://www.visitparkcity.com/quickstart/?quickstartstep=1
2/15/2011 1:04:45 PM I know many of you wax your own boards at home. But I'm too lazy to do it myself. I used to go to the SS store and get the free wax. But now I need to find some other place to get my boards waxed. Is there any other place around Sacramento or north Tahoe that does free waxes? If not, what's a good cheap place to get it done and how much? I'd prefer places along I-80 since thats where I travel most of the time. Thanks.
1/19/2011 11:00:23 AM Pretty good deal! https://livingsocial.com/deals/21336?ref=conf-jp&rpi=4378624
10/13/2010 11:22:58 AM I'm trying to get a group of 10 people to get the $399 group rate for the Double Whammy Limited pass to Northstar and Sierra-at Tahoe.   Here's the info: http://www.doublewhammypass.com/info/group-pass.asp   No blackouts at Sierra-at-Tahoe Northstar Blackout Dates: Dec – 26-31, 2010, Jan 15-16, 2011, Feb 19-20, 2011. Msg me if you're interested. Deadline is Sunday 10/31, but I'd like to get it all done earlier (Friday 10/29) to make sure we get all the money collected before that date.
10/6/2010 1:40:12 PM I want to start my 4yr old this coming season either with skis or snowboards (I prefer snowboards, but I think most ski schools only offer skis for this age). Which resort is the best for a 1st time 4yr old, in terms of price and instruction. If I can go on some runs during the lesson would be a plus. I live in Roseville, so north shore would be closer for me. Any suggestions?
7/26/2010 8:45:43 AM you probably want to edit your subject title to correct spelling...i use bolle goggles from costco...
