    I may have to wear my goalie mask on the hill next year .... I'm sure that would cut down on stupid questions about my skiboards in the lift line.

    You should do it. The best sort of mask to wear would be one of those early, fiberglass Jacques Plante type masks, the preferred choice of sinister characters in spooky movies.

    I would like one of the ski helmets with the built in visor but so far they are silly money. The few that I tried didn't fit me that will either.
    Back in the day, when the Helmet law was introduced into the UK compelling motorcyclists to wear a helmet, there was much debate over whether to have a full or half face design. Half face is without the chin guard, like most ski helmets. I remember one respondent saying that if he had to wear a helmet it might as well be a Sedan helmet, aka full face. L J K Setright if anyone remembers. Built in visor is pretty close to a Sedan in my estimation.

    Thanks, I just started this ski boarding collection. Been using a Cannon M7 for years, until I decided I needed a new board with all the good snow we were getting in California.
    I bought 2 new ones, then a bunch of used ones to see the differences and to find what I like best.. my family of 3 and friends like that I have many to choose from .
    The other device to hold the skis so I can tune them up should come in handy when the snow hits the mountains

    2) Trying out some skiboard graphics updates. I have been messing around with updating/changing the topsheet graphics of some boards. I'll post some pics if it works out.

    3) Kid skis purchases. I typically update my kids' skis during the summer to take advantage of off season clearances. This year for my youngest I went a different route and supported a start-up Jr ski. If all goes well my daughter will be rocking a pair of Coalition Poppy Skis. Coalition is a ski company for women by women making some cool stuff.
    Updates ....

    Project #1 -- DONE -- We are now the proud owner of a ski chalet in a beautiful lake community 15 minutes from three ski hills and less than an hour from 8 local ski destination. No more hotels or long day trips for the Wookies

    Project #2 -- Ski top sheet update --- In progress this week. Hopefully pics to follow.

    Project #3 -- Girls' skis slated to arrive mid November.

    I must say I am super jealous of your ski chalet! It sounds really wonderful to have for your family. Congrats!

    If it helps ease your jealousy right now it is less of a ski chalet and more of a dusty home improvement project that I expect will consume my weekends for the next 3 months but I hope the hard work and investment will pay off with fun times for our family and an end to sleeping in motels during ski trips and summer weekend retreats.

    Yup. The girls have named the house the Charm Chalet.
