||Hey Guys.... Wondered if anyone has any experience taking pets along to resort ski areas. If so, where did you stay, and what kind of pet amenities were offered? I'll start off with my Home mountain of Killington. The Chalet at Killington is very dog friendly. Not only do they allow you to bring dogs to the hotel, but they also offer a walking service while you ride. If your pup gets lonely, they'll let her/him hang out in the lodge area during the day. There's also a fenced in area behind the hotel for obvious reasons.... No more splitting before the lifts stop to take the pooch for a pee. The guys at the chalet are on it! Don't expect 5 star rooms, it's a pet friendly ski lodge... Common areas are great, rooms are a B- to a C+. Some people say rooms can smell a little like dog, but in my world, that's a ton better than smelling like my riding boots. They could use some improvement, but Couldnt find a dedicated website for them... so here's the tripadvisor.com write-up on it. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g57302-d276167-Reviews-Chalet_Killington-Killington_Vermont.html You'll have to excuse me if this thread is already out there... I did search for it, probably could have searched more... but whatever. Looking forward to hearing of other spots to bring the pup.

||Hey Guys, Looking for some input. This year i have a new insulated jacket for the colder months.... Burton Crucible in the Lumberjack Colorway. Only problem with it is the wrist cinching on the jacket is non-existent. So here's where I would like a few recommendations. I'm looking for a base layer top with extended sleeves and thumb holes. That way my base layer will tuck right into my glove and not leave me with the gap at my wrists. Who's used this type of base layer before? Any suggestions on brand or style? Does it work well, or is it horribly uncomfortable under the glove? Any help/input is appreciated... Thanks in advance!

||Hey guys... I've been looking into getting a jacket with integrated Ipod controls. The only company i can find that is still putting this feature on their jackets is call SURFANIC. Does anyone out there have any experience with their products? And if so, what is your overall opinion of their quality? Thanks in advance.....

||I have a good friend that i convinced to snag a Sierra Reverse crew... only prob, all the 199 coupon codes I've found are all expired. This was a pretty strong selling point for this guy.... anyone know of any current codes?

||Hey Guys I was looking at getting a pair of Electric eg2 goggles.... i have an xl helmet and most goggles are a bit small on my face. Does anyone out there wear these goggles w a helmet? I tried on a pair and didn't have a lid around to try with it.... seems like they wouldn't fit into a helmet very well.....

|| ******* SOLD!******* I'm putting my RED HiFi audex up for sale... i bought it for the sub-woofer speaker system but once i got it, I didn't like the fit of the HiFi So I'm going back to the Old Mutiny. This Helmet includes the Skullcandy powered sub-woofer ear-pads. Awesome sounding ear-pads.... a little on the bulky side, but if audio is more important than look... this is for you! I'll post some pics later tonight. This helmet is NEW in it's orig box (box is a lil beat but it's there). It includes all wiring, pads and goggle gasket. I'm looking for $60 + shipping for this bad boy but i would consider a trade for a pair of Anon Hawkeyes or similar. PM me if you're interested.
