It's January and I'm still using my rock skis. :cry:

I'll be willing to speculate the even 2001-2002 was better than these years. Revisit Jim Davies' graphs on Page 2.

You still have that Nytro Bill? You wouldn't have to dig if you got a 2 stroke, I learned that the hard way. I sold my Nytro. Digging is only fun the 1st time in a day.

I get what you're saying, but it's not really a fair comparison since it's not the same person in the new photos.

I would like to see more arguments for summer, Kris; so far so good...

Yup, I still have it and love it. I've put thousands of miles on that thing and really like the clean, quiet(er) 4-strokes. If I were mostly using it for bc ski access, I'd likely go with a smaller/lighter rig, but I use it a ton with the family and on long trips with friends. I really hate the stink of 2-strokes. The 4-stroke is really nice in most circumstances and I can usually get the Nytro in and out of some ugly stuff. Oh, and the power. :twisted:

I've considered adding another lighter, beater sled just for bc ski access but haven't pulled the trigger on that due to space.

I hope Keith didn't mind that I Photoshoped him into that "digging" photo?

She looks better on skis but that fart-suit is a bit dated
