8/19/2014 8:17:57 AM oh my, you will get everyone's preference that doesn't necessarily fit your style.  Never Summer Proto changes each year, but if you liked it....maybe that's the best bet.  The conditions in Aspen are ever changing. Stick to the cartel's if you like them.  switchbacks, flux, rome mods/bosses, union, all make good bindings.  but burton is still one, if not the best. boards...burton makes several you may like...custom x is still a good choice (depending on what year you want)custom flying vtwc proprobably about 10 more at least...capita tfn always a good choicelib tech trice pro hplib trs pro hprome modarbor makes some solid choices but I am not familiar enough to recommend...many others are2015 thrive accomplice 152 is a lot stiffer than 13/14thrive renegade / relentless may be a good choice honestly the list goes on and on.  
8/19/2014 8:08:57 AM When you say "colorado airport" I assume DIA.  You can fly directly in to Aspen, but that is a sketchy airport...usually a crash or two a year.  CME (colorado mountain express) will likely be your best bet if you aren't renting a car.  You'll want a least an awd if you are heading in...don't be one of the people who say they can make it just fine in something else but hold up traffic, it turns into a nightmare. DIA to aspen is a fairly long haul, 100pp is reasonable.  Though I would rent a car as it makes it easier to jump around the 4 mountains at aspen if you so choose, though parking anywhere but buttermilk and snowmass can be rough. enjoy your trip, hopefully you get some good snow.  Aspen is my favorite resort in CO.
8/14/2014 8:31:37 AM i really hope tahoe is awesome this year, as well as the rockies.  tahoe deserves a 700" season...
8/11/2014 3:09:30 PM already thinking about snow stuff again...
8/1/2014 7:01:36 AM ____---------____ -------____ --------------------_____ ------------ -----------_____ Life here is relatively unchanged.  Slow summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. Welcome back. 
7/25/2014 8:12:06 AM Byers - you are essentially asking for two different skis.  If you want a cross country/touring you will definitely be making a compromise when it comes to downhill/powder skiing.  That's if the cross country ski is even able to do this.  The skis will allow you to trek through snow though I won't say it'll be easy.  Much easier than post holing and faster than snow shoes. What I would suggest is looking into AT setups (alpine touring).  While this will be more expensive than a cross country setup, it is much more likely to fit what you are suggesting above.  You can also splitboard if skiing isn't necessarily what you wanted to do. Depending on the terrain you are trying to access, skis may not be able to navigate it all, so be prepared to hike in to more technical areas.
7/24/2014 12:29:48 PM While I have not specifically taught snowboarding to someone with autism, I have softball.  As a parent you will understand far more than anyone else.  The best thing I can suggest is finding a location that knows patience is key in teaching. for some encouragement http://www.theskichannel.com/news/20110422/jonahs-story-autism-no-obstacle-for-snowboarding-adventures/
7/14/2014 7:11:05 AM since the website was not an original TS creation, I can only imagine the difficulties involved in fixing it...I am just happy that there is progress!
7/10/2014 10:14:20 AM bring on diesel
7/10/2014 10:13:02 AM i still eat Popsicles...
7/7/2014 1:17:06 PM probably their flopping and the response the Dutch had to Mexico...
6/25/2014 11:33:06 AM you could probably drive faster if you weren't texting...
6/23/2014 2:10:40 PM i gave up a 34% bonus when I quit my last job.  no bonuses at the new job.  oh well!
6/23/2014 7:14:33 AM you left out aspen on the Mountain Collective, and the fact that you get two passes per listed mountain in the purchase price.  But for a 2-3 month endeavor, the Epic is the way to go. the cost for doing something like this might be pretty high.  Gas/Food/Lodging...especially if you are driving US to CAN...several thousand miles between some resorts if you go Tahoe, Colorado, BC, etc.
6/23/2014 7:09:35 AM they are back at it under my profile, but at least it's within reason!  Things are definitely looking better.
