What's your favorite downhill run??

Oh goodness...that is not an easy question...

Bear - Home Hill - until recently averaged 30 days a season - 44 was the best year ever - I hate this flipping disease.

Silver and Geronimo -- perfect nice long blue, black and double with no jumps and jibs -- SoCal mountains are all about the features and the boards - so I have these runs to myself often - rare here.

Mammoth - Chairs 22 and 25 -- again perfect blues and blacks often with powder and no crowd -- I leave Scotty's and Dave's for my men most days.

Tahoe -

Mt Rose and Kirkwood - too many that I know but don't know names of but will be back as much as possible

Heavenly - Anything steep with a view of the lake and lack of groms :)

Squaw - too long ago -- froggy there but know I loved it

Utahhhhhhhhh

Snowbird - anytime - anyrun

Alta - haven't been back since my hubby was teaching me in pnut butter cement - not in a rush to get back

Brighten - kids were on skis between my knees so the bunny hill?

Park City - like Snowbird better

Coloraaadoh -

I have a very long bucket list there - saw them all on a Summer tour - can't wait to gain my heath for the adventures these hold.

BC --- Ahhhhhhhhhhh

Edited for PS...can't believe I forgot Big Mountain, Montana -- right next to Glacier -- they call it Whitefish now -- only been in the Summer -- retirement dream.

These joints need a bit more healing before I head there -- but I do have some junior silly's and a hubby ready at the drop of a hat even if they have to hike it - but if a heli comes with the house it'll save some time -- so are the new owner's full time? where's the hide-a-key?

Now this sounds more my speed and effort level - a sled bar with ice plentifully at hand and a perfectly mixed wodka martini for your arrival :D And I, still being in one piece and still able to breathe, will be able to join you in celebrating our Double Diamond (which is where we live in Nevada) or Diamond Peak (which is where we used to live). My breathing isn't quite so good these days :(

You are close to Mt. Rose!!! -- 3 GottaSki's and 1 GottaBoard will be there just as soon as this stubborn body can get back a bit more mobility -- now where'd you say your hide-a-key was -- oh too big an invasion -- I can leave everyone home ;)

Let's work on the breathing -- so you can join these silly joints on the sledding hill.

Love Kirkwood and what used to be called Sierra Ski Ranch and North Star. Heavenly has good views but isn't that thrilling. Tahoe sounds like they are about to get dumped.

Alta, Brighton, Solitude and Snowbird nin the canyons are all good. Park City is too crowded. Deer Valley was great when the boys were little. They have very good lessons and take good care of little ones. Powder Mountain is very uncommercial and great. Snow Basin has good skiing and everything is really nice. Don't eat the gluten-free pizza at the little pizza place at the top. It is too small a place to keep the toppings safe.

J, my son at CSU, has been skiing but, with no natural pshanugh, its limited to one or two runs. They need snow badly! Breck has a little coffee shop that serves gluten-free soup and paninis and no non-gluten-free paninis or coup. The non-gluten-free cookies/muffins come to them completely wrapped to avoid any cc.

Loved Whistler! Went the years before the Olympics.

Skiing feels like a lifetime ago. Love that spot at Heavenly where while crossing from CA to NV side you see the lake & peaks of the Sierra on the left & the wild contrast of flat high-desert to the right.

Into it enough to work at a ski shop in HS, but other priorities dropped skiing weekends to 2 or 3 or even none. (Wish there weren't any nones, since I'm talkin pre-celiac)

You guys've been to a lot of ski areas! I think I got 7 states under me belt.

Nothin like that feeling at the top of 1st run, making final goggle adjustments, checking that everything's secure, giving a thumbs-up before launching while wearing the wide smile of anticipatory exhilaration! Ahhhhh I think I gave myself chills! :D

Bay area's current floodfearing rainstorms means Tahoe will be buried in several feet of sneaux in the next few days.

Hope no one there having a post-count phlipover cuz too much past&future-liquid can collapse a roof.

Hey Em! Michelle mushing a race this year? I'm getting pretty accustomed to the annual tracking & cheering.

Going to HooDoo or Bachelor the week after Christmas. Rented a house in my favorite city, Sisters!! Can't wait!! Part of the kids' Christmas presents. They're both spending a day with a boarding instructor. Helmets are arriving Tuesday...

:0

We had a neighbor that named her daughter Precious. When her daughter was a teen, she went to court and had it changed to something like Michelle or Karen.

I like my name, but with the boyfriend's ex's name as the same and she's a psycotic b, I'm thinking about doing something... His dad and brother call me Ricky. Like Ricky Bobby :lol: :lol:

Welcome to the holidays according to kitty....our first Christmas with Shelby she removed all the ornaments from the bottom quarter of the tree and would pop out from hiding behind branches of the tree to swat at us if we tried to rehang them -- my toddlers (now teens) never created such mischief :P

I got out the lights a few days ago and realized Simon ate through a few strands :rolleyes:

Going to HooDoo or Bachelor the week after Christmas.

I'm happy fer ya, Ricky Russell--but I don't know what this means :ph34r::lol: I'm not very cool :P

So today I went to CVS to do a little peaceful shopping, minding me own business.....and as I came around the hair care aisle, I glanced down the baby aisle and spotted two women bent over cramming cans of infant formula into bags. They didn't notice me, so I nonchalantly turned down the next aisle and watched out of the corner of my eye. Sure enough, they left--one at a time--without paying.

I alerted the two employees, one of whom ran out to the parking lot and got the license number of the car before they were driven away. The police were called, and I gave a statement of what I saw. Got to go up in the office with the huge fake windows that overlook the store and watch the security footage.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
