      From 1967. Faski-brand paint-on bottoms in the days before P-Tex. Before snowmaking, you'd wear the base off hitting things. It was a big deal the first time I got buckle boots. As a little kid, all my equipment was from the used pile in the basement of the local ski shop. I was probably in 5th grade before I ever had new gear. Cubco bindings which were awful. The slightest shock and they'd release. Then Look-Nevada bindings with the turntable heel or a bunch of year. The clothing was really awful. Life before Gore Tex and Polartec.

      I started 10+ years ago, at the age of 30. Could never afford to go when I was younger, being one of 9 kids. I love it, just wish I was close to the mountains! I try and head out west, to the Rockies, once every few years. There’s nothing in the east, that can compare.

      I used watch Warren Miller flicks growing up, and always dreamt of taking the family
      to Vermont. I’ve gotten my wife, family and friends into snowboarding. We regularily head to Jay Peak, almost each and every season. Snowboarding is now life and part of the family! 😊

      Cheers,

      Ron
