    I went back and looked at mine, no change in all that time, still trying to help someone troubleshoot boot problems, even though I'm not a boot fitter!

    First thread was asking how to do something.

    Guess that it's fitting that I joined Pugski on the day Epicski died, sniff. Didn't even know the website was shutting down until a week ago.

    Just wanted to thank all the folks on the More Retro Memories thread for all the great pictures and advice; Philpug, Rossi Smash, Royal, Joal, Lowell (for the only trade I ever got a chance to do there), and everyone else. Thanks for spurring me to go backward in time rather than forward in my choice of skiing equipment. I was planning to buy new skis and wasn't too jazzed about doing the whole super sidecut thing. My son refers to me as a "Non-Adopter" in marketing lingo and he's very right. Was going through Google Images reminiscing about all the great skis I couldn't afford in high school and college and hit a bunch of pictures that Rossi Smash posted (This was back before Google Books loaded all the old Skiing and Ski magazines from the 70s and 80s). Stopped thinking about new and went Old School instead and never looked back! Best thing I ever did. Went from 1 pair of straights to 20 and still climbing. Great fun to take the old skis out for a day or 2 on the slopes and have a blast. Also, searching for them online gives me something to do when my wife is watching some worthless show on TLC (The Loser Channel).

    Anyway, thanks for the memories Epicski!!

    The corpse is still moving? There appears to be a race to last to post.

    It's turning into a zombie version of "The Song That Doesn't End" over there.

    Wait, false alarm. Death throes apparently. A page refreshed to an On The Snow page, to a blank white page with nothing but "error", now back to normal. Hmmm.

    The EpicSki website is no longer active. Sad to see it go.

    We have decided to close this thread.

    Ha! That was one of the first threads I posted in... it was, interesting. And I hadn't even been to Aspen at that point, but I feel I was completely vindicated.
