    I am here at PugSki because of EpicSki. Sad to see it go but I have been posting here for a while now. Hopefully the increased traffic makes it even better not worse.

    As much as I'm excited to see Pugski.com thrive, I'm sad at some of the content that will be lost on Epic.

    I just posted this on a FB thread, but : 18 years is not too shabby for an online forum. I mean, 18 years ago, newsgroups and mailing lists were at least as popular as web fora. Back in the day, I remember being annoyed if I had to use a browser to interact with other people.

    I bet pugski's hosting fees are going to go up ... now's a good time to think about donating if you haven't (or haven't recently).

    It's truly a shame in that vail is just dropping this into the trash bin with no regard for its history and value to a real community of skiers. A real neighborhood. The reason why I am in steamboat is undoubtedly connected to Epic. I was trying to think of the many friends I have now because of Epic. Then I was thinking about what influences and impact the site has had on my life.

    I am not one to lament things so I can only look forward to continuing here on pug :rocks:

    Whatever. Really. I loved EPIC Ski for several years and then left when this site opened due to ugly politics by some mods over there that touched a raw nerve. This place will continue to do well by doing good...and that's alright by me.

    While we don't plan on being a mirror image of EpicSki, we are open to the idea o of making room for resort guides and other valued information that may be lost on Epic if you want to migrate it to your own source until we get it sorted out

    I would rather expect an influx of For Sale posters - please keep an eye on that section if you'd be so kind.

    It would be cool if you guys could get the site data and setup an archive on here to preserve it.
