    Several of the avatars used by you (pugski.com members) leave me intrigued.
    Some are obviously from your ski experiences.
    Some from other walks of life.
    Some are random images from the world we live in.

    Tell us about your avatar :popcorn:
    If you don't have an avatar, you need to upload one. We can help if you're having trouble.

    I've had a few avatars since we launched Pugski, all with some kind of meaning for me.

    My current avatar is from a cross country road trip we took two years ago. We stopped at the Field of Dreams Location in Iowa.

    Other avatars I've had include an image from my bucket list trip to MRG.

    And a photo that @Old boot took of me at an EpicSki Gathering a few years ago. iSki sunglasses!
    Edit: Actually looking at the reflection, I'm not sure it was old boot.

    My avatar is a photo of a wind up toy that I have on the kitchen table of my cabin near Stevens Pass. I use it because of its incredible likeness to my skiing style and because when I ski I get all wound up.

    This is the cabin in which it resides:

    Mine is a button one of the Ski Diva's made for me. Was it you Tricia? It's really a sign post at Tremblant. Guess I should keep it as Grand Prix is now knows at Eric Guay.

    Good idea. I'll try to remember to do it the next time I'm up there. Too bad this thread didn't happen yesterday. I was there for an overnighter last night and I could have shot it then. I'm going back in a couple of weeks to do some maintenance so it will have to wait at least until then.

    It was a drop my buddies and I found at Sierra Blanca (Ski Apache) NM on spring break in the mid 1980s..

    Here's another photo from a different angle that day. Wish I could still send it like that. My air feel and internal gyroscope isn't so great anymore..

    Mine is of a banner in Grindelwald, Switzerland. It's an ad for the Kleine Scheidegg skischule, and it says, "Improve your style." I took the picture as a joke for my SO because he always calls me a "snob skier." I learned to ski in Switzerland when my family moved there for three years when I was growing up, and I blame my "style" on the Swiss.

    I got hit in the face by a branch while skiing trees on a powder day, and I didn't even notice I was bleeding...or care. A co-worker did notice, and got the shot. Clearly I was having a good time.

    Mine is from January 29, 2013 which is known as 2% Tuesday. It was one of the best POW days in many years at Snowbasin as the 20+ inches of snow were 2% water content. Epic day!

    This was a clothe print from a poster from back about 74. Just your basic old hippie cowboy ski bum.

    The two of us leaving the start at a Crested Butte Ski Club fun race. Maybe 2015-26 season. I'd have had a better time if I was faster.
