About author
I started skiing in the mid-70s in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania; from then on, I found myself entrenched in the industry. I have worked in various ski shops from suburban to ski town to resort, giving me a well-rounded perspective on what skiers want from their gear. That experience was parlayed into my time as a Gear Review Editor and also consulting with manufacturers as a product tester. Along with being a Masterfit-trained bootfitter I am a fully certified self proclaimed Gear Guru. Not only do I keep up with the cutting edge of ski gear technology, but I am an avid gear collector and have an extensive array of bindings as well as many vintage skis.


Almost as good as a pork roll, egg and cheese on a Portuguese roll and chased back with a Yoohoo.
Yum, but I am more a scrapple guy. And if I am going to have a Yohoo, it will be with a liverwurst w/raw onion and mayo on a kaiser roll.

I remember your affinity for scrapple buried in a scrapple thread that I think was started by @Wendy years ago..........liverwurst and opinions is certainly a regional delicacy that seems to be from the days of yore.

Good luck with all the enhancements to the site/product and have a good season. We hope to see you on day in the MinnieApple. You and @Tricia could do a Plake style "down home tour"...visit small independent ski areas in SD, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan....
